Zpacks Plexamid Tent Review

Here’s my initial review of the new Zpacks Plexamid tent. Zpacks sent this to me as a replacement for my Altaplex that had some delamination issues. I’m currently 1500 mile into the AT, and will do a full review when I’m done on what worked and what didn’t work.

Outstanding review man, the best I’ve seen so far, positives and negatives. I also have my eye on this one ER.

Asiem Malik says:

Would love to see how it fairs in exposed high wind conditions, for north European customers ?

ArtisanTony says:

That is a nice tent. I remember how excited I was back in the early 80’s when we had a dealer who started carrying Eureka’s small backpacking tents. It wasn’t easy like now where you can just get on amazon and order anything :)

Justin LaFrance says:

Just wondering, what kind of pillow are you using? It looks really light.

John Mosher says:

I also felt mist during a heavy rainstorm in my Altaplex tent but I am pretty sure that it kept coming through even after I wiped down the condensation with a dry washcloth. I am wondering if big raindrops actually force the mist through the fabric of the tent. I should mention that the mist did not have enough volume to get me wet since it evaporated almost as soon as it hit.

Nice job Griz. Thanks for taking the time. How about for a big guy 6ft 240 to small?

Wyatt Rutherford says:

Was wondering how this tent packs down into your pack? With the new carbon rods I’m worried it won’t fit into my pack horizontally, thanks!

Jon Frankson says:

Solid review man, I’ve been considering buying this tent. Do you have a link I can use so you get something in return?

Bri B says:

I’m just not real crazy about that zipper that just lays there on the floor/ground when fully open. Looking at this tent and the Tarptent Notch Li. Really like the 2 doors in the Notch.

John Wilson says:

Like a few others have commented, this has been a great review by somebody who has actually used it in adverse conditions – well done! My question is how it compares to the Altaplex? While I can appreciate the weight savings of the new design, I liked the steeper wall angles of the Altaplex to shed rain and snow on the outside, and condensation on the inside. Like you, the carbon roof pad worries me a little, but your detailed video does demonstrate the extra width created at head level. Liked and subscribed!

Thanks for the review. This tent is on my short list. Will be looking for the next review.
