Wild Country Tent
The owners' manual says that Terra Nova "maintain a comphrensive stock of spare parts" so I suggest you give them a ring and see how much a set of poles is (www.terra-nova.co.uk or 01773 837373).
I can't believe they can be that expensive, so £10 sounds like bargain...
New to the forum! I'm considering purchasing a Zephyros 1 tent, but have one query which I have been unable to find a clear answer on!
With this tent is it possible to pitch it outer first and add the inner in later? Considering this tent for a multi day route in Scotland.
You can, although I haven't tried it. It's probably quite a faff as the end poles are attached to both the inner and outer. I think it's one of those "It's possible, but why would you want to" things.

Yup. But it's a bit fiddly. I find it easier to carry it and pitch it 'as one'.
Maybe this is a silly question...
Whats the little orange stick for? Is it incase one of the poles breaks whilst you're on the hills?
You mean the length of gold-coloured anodised aluminium tube? As you guessed, that is a temporary splint to repair the main pole if it gets damaged.
Saw the Zephyros on sale in Blacks (Reading)* for £60 at the weekend, for you Zephyros fans... Can't see it at that price on their website, though.
* or was it (bizarrely) Millets?
Your pounds (sterling) character seems to have printed as ??? (assuming you mean that the Zeph Lites are £180 and £210)
Given the Zephyros was initially marketed as the budget version of the Laser Comp, that does indeed seem a bit steep. It's certainly more than I'd pay to shave off half a kilogram.
PS: to get a pounds symbol in the universal ASCII character set, key in Alt +156
This thread seems to have reinvigorated itself this week
So I'll mention that I spent three nights in my Zeph 2 car-camping at a music festival last weekend. It was the first time I've pitched it in pitch darkness on rough ground aided only by a headtorch - in the morning it looked about as tautly and tidily tent-like as a discarded rubbish bag but at least it kept the dew off me
Hopefully be getting a 2 soon, just researching to find the best price.

damn it! I just bought one online the other day and it was more than that not £180 though, sportsdirect (LOL) sell them for £100 and they come with a free sports direct gigantic mug (also LOL)
Thinking of getting a Zephyros 2. I'm guessing they're pretty good...seen decent reviews of it and like the wieght.
Also where is the cheapest you've managed to get it? Sports Direct for £120 is the cheapest I've seen so far...
Just googled it and Nevisport have it for £100 and I'm guessing Go outdoors would beat it by 10% again?
