The Helm Compact 1 is a well proportioned, free-standing dome tent designed for the outdoor enthusiast looking for a lightweight tent which packs down to a compact pack size. At just 30x17cm the tent packs easily into a rucksack or panniers.  
  • A good choice for medium duration backpacking trips where more space may be needed.
  • The inner has plenty of headroom and there's a good sized porch for kit storage, plus extra storage space under the rear flysheet accessed from a small door in the inner.
  • Suitable for 3 season camping, the dome style provides more stability than a single hoop design such as the Zephyros 1.
  • Quick and easy to erect, the flysheet and inner pitch together.  
  • The Helm Compact 1 has a mesh panel on the inner door plus a small mesh door with cover at the rear of the inner (which also allows access to the rear storage space) , providing several options for ventilation depending on weather conditions. 
  • Comes with a side opening tarp style tent back which makes it easier to pack away when it's time to move on - simply roll the tent into the bag and pull tight.
  • A good choice for backpackers and campers looking for a roomy 1 person tent suitable for campsite stays and wild camping. 
  • Flysheet 4,000 HH, Groundsheet 5,000 HH

Fantastic little tent for one person camping.
The poles are very flexible and even though they're strong, they can bend in high winds. You can double up the poles, so my advice would be to get a spare set just in case you need to double up.

Fast delivery, great website, keen prices - what more could you want

John Crowshaw
Outstanding tent value

The Helm 1 is not the lightest one person tent out there, weighing in at just under 2 kilos but it is a very robust, well built and sturdy. It is outstanding value for the price and matches more expensive tents in reliability. This is purely a one person tent but has useful, decent storage space

Bargain Tent

What a great little tent. Easy to pitch and seems very well made Great price. - Super happy.

Ollie Elkington
Superb 1 person tent

Great quality. Easy to put up and lightweight.
I store the tent and poles separately in my rucksack so I have more room. Yet to experience heavy rain and strong wind but I feel confident it will stand up to the conditions
