Posted onGreat quality!I bought an early version of this tent together with 2 other friends about 8 years ago for $200 when the company was named Freedom equipment. One of my friends sadly had hers stolen, the other friend and I still have ours. I have used mine quite a bit over the years, in sun, rain and snow and in 3 different countries. I am patching the first hole in it today, it has lasted really well and I absolutely love it. The only improvements I would have made are already there in the current version (clip in poles instead of thread through, fully mesh inner). Well done Zempire!
Posted onLightweight for the sizeThis has been the best tent I've owned. I camp from my motorbike and this tent packs down small and is very lightweight for the size. Super easy to pitch with the spine type poles and love how the fly clips into place. No issues with quality so far and has seen a lot of use.
Posted onWe absolutely love our tents!We have two zempire tents - the drift and the Zeus. We also have the drift awning, the airflow canopy and a number of smaller items. Each item has performed excellently over the many adventures we have had in them. Our drift was really put to the test over the New Years period 15/16 where we were staying at the top of a cliff in Whananaki - torrential rain and gale force winds were no match for our drift- we remained dry and cosy. We absolutely love our tents!

Zeus Detailed Features
LAYOUT | One of the great usable features of the Zeus is the opposing door layout. With doors and vestibules on each side of the tent, each person has a place to store their own gear and there is no climbing over one another to get in and out of the tent. The floor size makes a comfortable lightweight tent for two and the offset brow pole provides additional headroom inside. The brow pole also increases the effective vestibule areas on each side of the tent, making them great spaces for storing gear or cooking out of the rain.
VENTILATION | The Zeus features ventilation options to help control temperature inside the tent and reduce condensation build-up. The double-layer design provides a separation between the mesh inner tent and waterproof rain fly, minimizing internal condensation. The side expel vents can be opened in all weather and provide essential air-circulation; reducing condensation and creating a more comfortable environment inside the tent. On clear nights, you can remove the fly completely for maximum airflow and still be protected from biting insects.

Zeus Additional Info
• Ensure guy ropes are out at all times during use.
• Never pack your tent away wet. If you must take your tent down when wet, ensure that it is dried completely as soon as possible to prevent mildew from forming.
• If mildew does form on your tent, wash off with warm water and a soft brush to prevent further growth, do not use soap or detergents.
• Do not use an open flame inside your tent. The fabric has been treated with a fire retardant but is in no way fire-proof.
• It is important that lower vents are opened at all times to reduce condensation. During humid or damp conditions, it is recommended that the waterproof door covers are opened to expose the mesh layer, enabling additional airflow throughout your tent.
• Do not use open-cell foam mats directly on the tent floor. This can cause condensation between the mat and floor and if not dried out, can lead to mildew from forming.
3 Year ADVENTURE SERIES GUARANTEE All our ADVENTURE SERIES tents come with a guarantee designed to protect you as our valued customer. ZEMPIRE will repair or replace this tent, at their discretion should it fail due to faulty materials or manufacture for a period of 3 years from the date of sale.
