Eureka! Zeus 4EXO
The Zeus 4EXO may be the biggest little tent ever made. At 9 pounds, it’s no heavier than a well-fed house cat but sleeps four adults comfortably, as my wife and children discovered on a float trip down Montana’s Smith River last spring. The secret of the design is weatherproof one-wall construction, eliminating the need for a fly. High-low ventilation panels keep condensation to a minimum, a bugaboo of other one-walls I’ve used, and a roomy vestibule lets you pull your gear under cover without cluttering the interior. If you backpack hunt or canoe camp, this tent will make your downtime a lot more pleasant. _$299; 800-572-8822; _
