Zempire Atom Hiking Tent – How to setup & pack away


– This guys is the Zempire
Atom Lightweight Hiking Tent a dual skin, single pole
tent, with a bit of headspace for lightweight adventures. I’m gonna show you how to
set it up and pack it away. (upbeat music) Ben from Snowys here folks
down here in Adelaide’s leafy eastern suburbs at the
Brown Hill Creek Terrace Park. It’s only 20 minutes to the
city, 20 minutes to the beach and the Adelaide Hills just
over my right shoulder here. I got some space down here
in the caravan park today to show you some of our products. This is the Zempire Atom One Person Tent. It’s a single pole tent
with an extra brow pole to give you some headspace. So packed up like this they measure about 45 centimetres long and about 15 centimetres in diameter. And weight is about 1.74 kilos in total if you strip out the bits you
don’t need in the packaging you’ll get it down to
about 1.5, 1.54 kilos. I’m gonna show you how to set
it up and pack it away today, I’ll start with what comes in the bag. So inside the bag for your
Atom Tent here you get your flysheet, your inner
tent, here your poles, there’s a short pole and a long
pole, the main pole in here. This is your bag of pegs and there’s also another strap in here. Now it doesn’t actually
have any instructions on what this is for, I’ve got a feeling it’s to use for the fly only set-up. But we’ll check that out later. You get a couple of straps
to secure it all together and one other thing I’ll
mention is that you can actually get an optional footprint
for your Atom Tent. Now this allows you to set
it up as a fly only set-up with a ground sheet. It also adds extra
protection to the inner floor of your tent. The first thing I need to do to set it up is put all this stuff
aside, spread the inner out and put the poles in place. And just a little bit
on the pole structure for the Atom Tent. Firstly, it does come
with a pole repair sleeve, should you happen to damage any poles or be caught out in bad weather. Now, there’s not actually two poles there’s actually an
all-in-one pole section, so you’ve got the long pole here and the little brow pole is actually
attached with a hub here. Now there is a red section to the pole that lines up with a red
tab on the tent here. So the first thing we need
to do is put the pole ends in the eyelets at the end
of the tent and the same with the brow pole, which
goes across the top here and there’s some little
tabs which these brow poles also fit into. So I’ve the poles in place,
the next thing I need to do is to clip the inner to the
poles with these C clips that run right around the
long length of the pole here and one at the top. And then I
grab the pegs, four in total, and put them on all the corners. On these pegs, they are
made to be lightweight, so they don’t take up
much weight in your pack, but they’re not super durable. I’m lucky enough to have
soft ground here today and I can push them in by
my hand or with my foot but you wouldn’t want
to be belting these with a really heavy mallet. If you do need to use it on hard ground, you might be best upgrading them. Now I’ve put four pegs in
the tent, on each corner. I haven’t put them in the ends. There’s probably not enough
pegs to go in the ends as well. Not really required
because all the other pegs hold it in place. Next step now is to throw
the fly over the top. So I’ve the flysheet on
and oriented so my door is on the same side as the inner door. There’s only one door in this tent. We’ve got velcro tabs under
here that need to go around the alloy frame here and
the orientation of the fly is also color-coded, so the
red strap on the end here goes to the same end as the red pole and clips in at the base. So that’s the flysheet
on and all pegged out. I’ve got two pegs left over. I managed to use the
same pegs as the inner for the four corner points.
One extra peg on the end of the vestibule here and
one for each guy rope, so there’s a guy rope on each side. One thing I’ll also recommend
you do when you set up is the brow pole that runs
across the top of the tent here, there is fabric that can run
over the end of the pole. Just make sure that that’s
running over the pole, so it’s not sticking into your flysheet, that could be a wear-spot. That’s the Zempire Atom Tent all set-up. Pretty easy by myself.
Pack ups pretty easy too. So the first thing we do to pack it up is obviously take the fly off.
We gotta pull the pegs out. Now pulling the pegs out is
made easy because Zempire have actually put little rope
loops on each peg, so all you gotta do is get your finger
in there and yank ’em out. Undo the clip at each end and remove the velcro tabs from the frame. So the next step is to
take the four pegs out of the inner tent and then
I can remove the frame undoing these clips and
removing the ends of the poles from the eyelets. So now I can just fold the
inner up, put the fly on top put all the pegs and everything
in together, roll it up. Back in the bag, and we’re done. That is how you set up and pack away the Zempire Atom One Person Tent. Now these are a really affordable, single person adventure tent. There’s a slight variation on
your normal single pole tent offering a little bit of extra headspace for only marginally more weight. You can grab these online at snowys.com.au at our lowest prices, everyday! I hope you found that useful.
