Great for camping with tons of gear, the Zempire Neo 5 Dome Tent features sleeping room for four and a vestibule large enough to pack all your gear into for a day away from camp.
Three entrances to the front vestibule lead to a central zippered doorway that fully encloses the rear sleeping quarter. Two side windows combine with four draft vents for ventilation and a rollout floor features in the vestibule.
Tons of space and stability thanks to a geodesic frame, the Zempire Neo 5 dome tent is a versatile shelter for small families.
this is an excellent tent for up to 3 people (2 adult, 1 child). there are only two minor points I'd make: firstly it needs 2 people to put it up - it requires someone on the inside supporting the poles where they cross over for one stage of pitching. secondly getting it back into its bag is tricky but that's the same with most tents. Otherwise I am extremely happy with it!
Like the previous reviewer, I also picked the neo 5 over the similarly sized neo 6 because an unsealed vestibule is just so easy to keep cleanish. Love the ventilation for longer sleepins on a summer morning. Love the internal corner pockets. At the time of this review, this tent is erect and deflecting a strong wind. 100% confident this bad boy could handle a thumderstorm gust front (assuming you have pegged and guy roped it properly). Such a solid beast of a tent. 5 stars.
The tent went up very easily, around 20 mins from start to finish (first time). Now that I have done it once and know what needs to be done it should go up in around 10 mins.
The overnight temps dropped to -3 and not a single drop of moisture was found inside the sleeping compartment.
We had a queen size inflatable mattress and still enough room to walk around 3 sides of the mattress.
Great tent, great storage pockets, well designed and constructed.
I'm a big believer in an unsealed vestibule, so picked the neo 5 over the neo 6. Raining and muddy outside? Well come straight in and remove your boots in comfort knowing that the vestibule floor will be easy to clean when packing up. Very well designed tent with well placed storage pockets in all 4 corners and excellent ventilation. Quality of materials and workmanship is excellent. Instructions are easy enough to follow. Likely to hold up very well in bad weather, but untested as of now.
Thanks for your review Peter, very helpful not only for other customers but also great feedback for us too!
Just curious about size of the vestibule for this one. In the photos it looks quite large but the dimensions plan showed it 1m deep only... That sounds like a non extended vestibule sort of dimension... Confused
I can totally see where the confusion is, I’ll make sure we update the floorplan to reflect the dimensions of the vestibule more accurately.
In the meantime, if you have a look at Zempire’s floorplan you’ll be able to get a more accurate idea of what the Neo 5 looks like.
wondering if the entrace can be sealed off or by any fly screen?
The vestibule of the Zempire Neo 5 tent is not sealed by a fly screen/mesh, if you have a look at the fifth picture linked in the description, you can get an idea of what the inner tent looks like without the fly (and vestibule).
If you're after a tent with a sealed vestibule, then you should take a look at the Zempire Neo 6 - this model has a fully enclosed vestibule that will keep out insects and doubles as an extra bedroom on the tent.
before ordering this beauty, i am wondering how long doe it take usually to build up the tent? also, with the fly, could we separate the tent part and front vestibule part? or they are fixed?
If you’re an inexperienced camper I’d say it would take you approximately 20 minutes to set this up as there are more steps to take in comparison to an instant or pop up structure. If you’re a pro at setting up tents, it may take you less than that.
From feedback from other tents in the Neo range, we’ve had first time campers who have had positive experiences setting up their Neo so you shouldn’t have any trouble.
As for the fly – the vestibule area is an extension of the fly which goes over the top of the entire tent, so you can’t use the vestibule and tent as separate shelters.
