A picture of symmetry, the Zempire Neo 10 Family Dome tent is the best dressed tent in our range and comes with a strong dose of function and versatility.
Two four person sleeping quarters feature zippered privacy doors with solid and mesh panels, and are separated by a roomy living space with entrances and vestibules on each side. Ventilation is created through the doorways, and windows on each side of both bedrooms.
Tons of headroom, and a sturdy frame structure means you can continue camping in comfort when the weather turns bad. Ample internal storage pocket feature as well as lantern hooks, The Zempire Neo 10 is a handsome and functional family camping tent.
Quality in terms of the materials, guys, poles , storage bags etc.
The Roman has 210T Polyester, and the Zempire has 190T Polyester but both offer 3000mm waterhead rating so there isn’t going to be a huge performance difference in the field.
The guy ropes and pegs from both models are both fairly standard, some people prefer to purchase heavy duty options depending on their preference.
Both tents also have a polyethylene floor, and seam sealing – so they will offer roughly the same level of protection against rain seeping in the tent.
As for poles – the Neo has fiberglass, and the Explorer has durawrap fiberglass poles – so the Explorer will be a bit more flexible and durable.
The Roman comes with a wheeled carry bag, while the Zempire’s bag doesn’t have wheels so the Roman is going to be a little easier to carry as it is on the heavier side at 28kg.
It seems that the main distinction between the two would be the extended section on the Explorer 9 which will give you slightly more storage space than the Neo 10.
We haven’t got this tent set up in store, but from looking at the dimensions of the Neo 10, it looks like you can fit a camp bed/stretcher in each of the side rooms of this tent. If you wanted two in each bedroom that might be a stretch as it’s unclear how much the rooms slope.
The side rooms of this tent are 170W by 240L cm, so if you go by those measurements you can compare them to the stretchers/airbed you want to use in this tent.
It’s hard to say exactly how long it will take you to set this tent up. It will depend on how much experience you have, and if you have someone there to give you a hand. I would say that it could take you between 20-40 minutes to pitch it in full.
If you have a look at the pitching instructions here, you’ll be able to get an idea of how the Neo 10 comes together.
A great site with lots of info. However, the "compare" function has limitations, e.g., I can't compare the Neo 8 and 10 because they are in different categories. For the same reason, I can't compare a dome tent with a cabin tent. So it makes it somewhat difficult when considering a wide range of options. I haven't camped since I was a kid but we are considering some short-term (weekend) camping trips and looking for something to suit.
You're right Rob, the Neo doesn't have a whole lot of information online - something we'd like to improve quick-smart. As for comparing each model (or any other tent), we've updated our compare functionality so you can now compare all products across all categories.
You're getting back into camping? Great! Well, the Zempire Neo range is a good place to look. They are great quality and crazy good value. If you want me to give you a hand to choose the right tent, perhaps we can have a chat on the phone on Monday, or continue this by email then?
Do the external doors have a mesh screen as well as a polyester one?
Are the internal zippered privacy doors (between the sleeping and central area) mesh or solid polyester?
I need to come back and correct myself here, we've just found out that these internal doors comprise of both mesh and solid polyester panels. The main door to the inner tent however, has a single solid panel. I apologise for any confusion.
