Based on a classic lightewight 2 person tent design, the Zempire Zeus Hiking Tent provides an entrance and vestibule for each occupant - handy if you’re not on speaking terms!
The twin hub pole structure creates near vertical sides and tons of internal space, and creates an exceptionally stable free-standing frame. A full mesh inner, draft panels, highly waterproof floor and rip-stop fly all come together in a tough, durable design.
The Zempire Zeus is the most functional tent in the Zempire range, and is a great choice if you want one tent for every adventure.
Have used this tent twice in a variety of conditions. It stands up well to rain and wind and in humid conditions it remained reasonably ventilated. It is super easy and quick to put up with colour coded poles. The fabric seems to be relatively robust, but I'm not sure the pegs will last as we have bent 2 already. I would also like to see a footprint added to the range. All in all though this lightweight tent is excellent value for money.
What is included in the minimum weight spec
Hey Neil, there's no industry standard for minimum weights, and Zempire don't specify anywhere exactly what is included in this weight. As a general rule, the minimum, or sometimes called trail weight includes the tent inner, flysheet, poles and enough stakes to keep the tent in place, which in the case of the Zeus is likely to be just two pegs.
The weight of what ends up in your pack generally lies somewhere between the packed and minimum weights, and is dependant on what weather you are preparing for.
Hope this helps.
would the Exped Megamat 10 Duo be a suitable mattress to use in the zeus?
G’day Bailey, while I don’t have a Zeus to test this for you (they’ll be back in stock later this month) just from looking at the measurements I think it will be a bit of a stretch. Keep in mind that the dimensions listed on the website are external so when you’re trying to find a mat to fit a tent you’ll need an extra 5-10 cm space to accommodate the slope of the walls. While the length would be fine in the Zeus – the width is an issue as the Megamat 10 and the Zeus tent are both 130cm wide. I know the Megamat’s are super comfortable so it may feel like a downgrade – but there are some excellent hiking mats on the market at the moment, which would be better suited to this tent.
I like the idea of a footprint for better insulation from cold ground and protection of the tent floor. Are Zempire planning to make footprints, if not, which of the stocked footprints would be most suitable to be used? - Can they be cut down? Thanks
Hi, I'm looking for a lightweight 2 person hiking tent, I'm 6'4" tall and am struggling to find a tent that I fit in. I'm in between an Rei half dome 2 plus, Mountainsmith Morrison 2 or the Marmot tungsten 2P.
Especially in terms of the percentage of the inner tent that is NOT mesh. We'd prefer more fabric than mesh if possible. Also, what is the weight of the Elixir 2 without the extra footprint.
