OUR VERDICT Perfect for smaller families, the Zonda 4EP provides plenty of living space in a compact and easy-to-pitch tunnel tent.
Couples, young families and single parents for weekend camping trips
Launched in 2020, the Zonda 4EP has already become popular with couples, young families and single parents, and we can see why. The pack size and weight makes it more manageable for one adult with a little help to lift and pitch on their own and the smaller dimensions and packed size also make it ideal for weekend getaways.
This was part of a completely new family collection launched by Derbyshire-based Wild Country for 2020, but the heritage of the brand – also responsible for the award-winning Terra-Nova adventure brand – meant it was no surprise that it hit the ground running.
Pitching is swift and simple, and the innovative oversize tarp-style tent bag makes packing away a breeze.
The main groundsheet is fully sewn in to keep draughts and bugs out and adjustable air vents with mesh panels are provided for comfort in warmer weather.
The large tinted windows have adjustable privacy curtains and the bedroom, made from a black fabric, is divided into two compartments with removable partitions.
The flysheet is made of a robust 150 denier ripstop polyester fabric which is factory seam taped and waterproof tested to 6,000mm hydrostatic head. A carpet and footprint are also available. A comprehensive repair kit and inflation valve tool are included, in the, hopefully unlikely, event something goes awry.
