Simplicity and affordability are key features of the Zempire Mono lightweight hiking tent.
Room for one plus a vestibule area for all your gear in a single pole configuration ideal for any 3 season adventure. The full mesh inner minimises weight yet incorporates solid draft panels that increase warmth inside the tent.
A soaringly waterproof floor, unbendable pegs, ripstop fly and YKK zippers all come together to make the Zempire Mono a tent you can rely on for any lightweight adventure.
This tent is very good value. You can spend a lot more to save a few hundred grams in weight. It is well made and should last a long time. It is a compromise between size and weight but you can fit a pack in the vestibule and it is waterproof. Recommended for a solo hike.
I only just fit in this tent (I'm around 185cm tall), so if you are much taller you might run into trouble, but otherwise it is a great tent. Easy to set up and plenty of room to sit up, etc. if you store the poles outside of the compression sack you can make the tent even smaller for packing.
G'day Michael. Thanks for sharing your photo - looks like such a lovely spot! Also, thanks for sharing your tip about packing the poles separately, very helpful!
With the weight given as 1.6 kg and the minimum weight 1.38 kg .. what is excluded to achieve the 220 gram reduction ?
The minimum weight excludes the pole repair sleeve, the extra pegs, and the storage bag – so it leaves you with the basics you'll need to pitch the tent.
Doubting how the 4 guy rope pegs at approx 12 g each, the storage bag, and repair sleeve can equal 220 g .. or is the pole repair sleeve a heavy item? Zempire’s website gives weight as 1.7kg and the trail weight as 1.35kg. http://zempire.com.au/tents/adventure-tents/mono.html Has anyone actually checked these weighs ?
It's probably important to note that there are no guidelines for what should be included when stating measurements for weight, trail weight, minimum weight etc. We attempt to independently weigh all of our tents but given we have thousands of products online this is not always possible.
There is a discrepancy between the product I have in a workbook and what is online and on the box, being that the total weight is actually 1.7KG. I called Zempire to clarify their minimum weights, which apparently does not include pegs or poles... not particularly useful!
I will make a note to check all these weights to include the minimum number of poles and pegs as soon as I get a chance, but for now I weighed the whole package in it's box, which comes in at 1.9kg. Take away about 150g for the cardboard and packaging and another 200g for the stuff sack and pole and peg bags, repair sleeve and any unecessary pegs, and the minimum weight is probably more like 1.5Kg-1.6Kg.
I will try and get this confirmed later today, sorry for the confusion, and thankyou for bringing this to our attention.
Sorry Richard, I did weigh these and posted the correct weights on our website. I included enough pegs to pitch the tent without the guy ropes, each peg weighs around 10g. The Mono weighed in at 1.5 Kg. There will probably be slight variations of 10-20g which comes from a little extra/less stitching here and there, and some extra webbing length which all add up a little, but by my assessment, I would say these variations would be less than 20g.
If its raining I want a tent with fly already attached so I can simply insert pole and peg it down. Otherwise the inside's wet from the start. This used to be industry standard, I don't know why most tents now require the inner to be set up first.
The Zempire Mono Hiking Tent is not freestanding so you won't be able to pitch it the way you've described.
While the Mono is an excellent tent, it is competitively priced so it will have it's limitations. In general it seems that higher end tents provide more options for pitching, so you might want to consider a brand like MSR.
If you were to get something like a Hubba from MSR with a footprint you'd be able to set up the fly up first before the inner as it will stand on it's own.
Apologies, perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I don't want to set the fly up first. I want a fly and inner attached When I pull the tent out of my pack so I can insert The pole and put both up at the same time. Maybe you could Just tell me how the fly is attached to the inner And ill work it out myself. Thanks.
We've pulled a Mono out to confirm, and it attaches to the ridge pole with velcro tabs over the top of the inner. In our range the only tents that have the fly and inner attached are out pop up tent range which aren't suited to hiking.

I am 6' 2" / 188cm. The diagram shows a length of 230cm but that could be from the external outer fly and not from the internal bug screen. What is the internal length?
