The Zephyr is designed to hold up to some savage weather by employing a full coverage fly that is particularly aerodynamic on one of the sides.

There’s a second door on the opposing side of the tent for easy in and out access when camping with a partner — it’s one of the best value units around for camping pairs. The Zephyr is pitched using a simple two-pole design though it’s still entirely capable of standing up to strong weather.
