Trail Magazine Best Value Award August 2021, 'Sturdy, practical and well priced, this is an excellent tent for wild camping in the UK hills'
The Helm Compact 2 is a well proportioned, free-standing 2-person dome tent perfect for those looking for a little more space yet a compact pack size for easy carrying
The pack size measures only 32x21cm making it easy and versatile for packing into rucksacks or panniers. A good choice for medium duration backpacking trips where more space might be preferred.
There's plenty of headroom in the inner plus two decent sized porches for storing gear
Suitable for 3 season camping, the dome style provides more stability than a single hoop 2person design such as the Zephyros 2
Quick and easy to erect, the flysheet and inner pitch together with combined pegging points for the flysheet and inner
The Helm Compact 2 has a mesh panel on both inner doors providing plenty of ventilation to suit weather conditions
It's easy to pack away too with a side opening tarp style tent bag - simply roll the tent into the bag and pull tight
A good choice for backpackers and campers looking for a roomy 2 person tent suitable for campsite stays and wild camping
Key differences between the Helm Compact 2 and Helm 2:
Helm Compact 2 is even quicker and easier to pitch, new flysheet colour, yellow reflective guylines with cleat style runners, side opening tarp style tent bag, compact pack size (32x21cm), ventilation panels only on front and rear inner doors
