Zpacks Duplex 2P Zip Tent
Zpacks Duplex 2P Zip Tent
Now you can finally buy your Zpacks Duplex 2P Zip Tent here in Australia !!!
After a decade of dominance, Zpacks have added a new take on their award-winning Duplex Tent. The new Duplex Zip Tent comes with several enhancements that make it even more versatile and user-friendly for all your outdoor adventures.
They've added zippered storm doors with peak vents to provide extra protection from wind and rain without sacrificing ventilation. The storm doors are easy to open and close, allowing you to adjust the airflow inside the tent as needed.
With new magnetic door toggles that make it easier to secure the tent doors out of the way without having to fumble with clunky closures. The magnetic toggles are strong and secure, designed to ensure the doors stay rolled up in windy conditions.
Just like our flagship Duplex, the Duplex Zip Tent is lightweight, roomy, well-ventilated, packs down small, pitches easily, and can be set up in the tightest of spaces. You won’t find lighter functional two person tents anywhere on the market.
Sets up with two trekking poles adjusted to around 48" (122 cm). Slightly taller or shorter fixed length poles will also work. If you do not use trekking poles, we have straight tent poles available. Eight stakes are required for this tent. Stakes are not included but we have a variety of Ultralight Stakes to choose from.
Symmetrical design allows two adults to lay side by side in either direction. Two people can also sit upright side by side facing out either door while removing shoes or while reaching out to cook or access gear just outside the tent.
Any of the four storm doors can be opened or closed independently. Leave all four open on nice weather nights for a breeze and great views. Close the upwind doors to block cold wind, or close all four for 360° rain protection. The doors can be secured closed with our custom made metal hooks or independently rolled up and out of the way with the built in magnetic toggles.
Both sides of the tent feature a peak vent to increase air flow and deter condensation when the doors are closed.
- Each screen door has a rainbow zipper which allows easy entry regardless of which storm doors are closed, and they give you access to every vestibule area. Each screen door conveniently drops inwards rather than hanging in your way. No need to roll it up or secure it.
The tarp overhangs the bathtub floor by 4-5 inches (12 cm). In calm rain or under wet trees one or two doors can be left open for air flow without water dripping on the floor space. In almost all conditions at least one downwind door can be left open for air. Tip: For even better rain protection with a door open, use the included elastic cords to pull the screen door back away from the rain spray, as shown.
This tent has a solid, sewn in 8 inch (20 cm) tall bathtub floor. The bathtub floor is a rectangle 45 inches wide by 7.5 feet long (114cm x 2.3m). Plenty of space for two average people to stretch out plus space for gear at the ends of the floor.
Mesh pockets are conveniently located near each screen door so that they can be accessed from inside or outside the tent. They are a good place to store your cell phone, glasses, headlamp, the tent stuff sack, and spare seam tape (included). The pockets are about 8" x 8" (20 cm x 20 cm).
A separate groundsheet is NOT required for this shelter. The floor material is reasonably durable, and all Dyneema® Composite Fabric gear can be easily patched in the field with repair tape. If you do prefer to use a groundsheet as a precaution, Polycryo Groundsheets are available.
There is screen between the bathtub floor and the walls at the ends of the tarp. An elastic cord keeps the bathtub elevated ensuring the screen slopes downwards away from the bathtub. Any condensation, which single wall shelters may experience, will run down the walls and out through the downward sloping screen, rather than onto the floor. Click here for tips to avoid condensation.
All of our tents do pretty well in the wind. The material can handle high wind loads. As long as your stakes stay in the ground (use rocks if available) your tent will stay standing. Dyneema® Composite Fabric is not a particularly noisy fabric; however, almost any tent will make a little noise in the wind. Earplugs are not a bad idea for windy nights.
Dyneema Composite Fabric is naturally waterproof and is not treated with any potentially harmful chemicals such as flame retardants or water repellents.
All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

This tent is legendary for a good reason. So light, very simple robust design and packs down small.
I would highly recommend using with a ground sheet.
Will be taking mine to Larapinta soon!
