    Default FS: zPacks Altaplex

    After much thought, Iíve decided the zPacks Altaplex just isnít the right tent for me.

    I got it in early 2021 and have set it up a total of three times. I have slept in it just once on a trip last week. I prefer the two pole pitch and style of my old zPacks Hexamid Twin which unfortunately is no longer offered and so my search for a new tent will go on (any suggestions for a tent similar to the zPacks hex twin appreciated).

    Altaplex is in perfect shape. There was condensation last week during the night I spent in it, but I dried it off and cleaned it up. It comes with a new stuff sack from zPacks that I just used once last week. Does not come with stakes.

    Sells new from zPacks for $675. Price reduced to $530 priority mail shipped to the lower 48 included in price.

    I also have the zPacks staff which, at 60Ē is supposed to be good to pitch the altaplex but I personally think it is too tall by a couple of inches. Purchased for $125. Willing to sell it for $100 shipped. It would come with a cuben fiber stuff sack for storage that I purchased separately from zPacks. But to be candid, I think the Altaplex would pitch better at 56-58Ē than 60Ē. ZPacks customer service admitted as much before saying the 60Ē staff is ok if you ďdig it in to the ground a couple inchesĒ which of course is not always possible.

    Two photos attached from a test setup in local park.

    Paypal friends and family or Venmo are acceptable

    Bump ...

    Price cut to $575 for the Altaplex. It's in like-new shape after I spent just one night in it. Savings of $100 vs. today's price when buying new from zPacks.

    Price reduced to $550 (Venmo or PayPal friends/family), shipped priority mail to continental U.S. Like-new shape with just one night in it.

    I think this is a very good deal!

    I just ordered another tent so I would like to get this one sold. Dropped price to $530 including priority mail tracked shipping to continental U.S.

    The tent is in like-new condition, with just one night spent in it, and it retails for $675 on zPack's website, so you'd be saving $145. If there are any questions, you can reply here or send me a personal message. Thanks for looking.

    If you dont have any luck here, try posting on the reddit ultralight gear trade sub.


    I bet it goes quicker over there than here

    Thought Iíd post a link to a pic with weight of the tent. 15.27 ounces on my scale. Includes all guylines/hardware that came with the tent. Stuff sack is included in the sale and is an additional 0.3 ounce. No stakes included in weight or sale.

    Offering at $525 (PayPal F&F or Venmo) shipped priority mail insured to continental United States.

    Thatís the best price I can justify since itís only been used one night. Trying one last time - would prefer to get something else (copper spur ul1 is on back order) but will go ahead and start using if it doesnít sell. A good deal at $150 under price from zpacks.
    Thanks for considering.
