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.

  • 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.

Excellent service

It was the first time I'd used Hill and Dale and the the service was brilliant.
I can't really review the tent as I haven't used it yet

Wild Country Helm 2 - excellent tent

A great tent, fits two people comfortably. It has a porch area on each side for packs, boots etc.
It weighs about 5 lbs, nice aluminium poles, easy and quick to erect, all in one or fly first if you want to split the tent between two packs. Good pegs, strong and good in wind. I've not used it in snow, but the fly goes low to the ground and the tub is a few inches high, it should be ok if there's not much drifting.
I would suggest getting the footprint, it means your bags in the porches are off the ground.
I get one large and one standard Topo Neo-air inside.
Condensation on the outer is variable, I take a small sponge to wipe down before packing. Make sure your inner is well away from the fly, you should have no damp issues that way.
The groundsheet is ok, it can show a bit of damp on very wet ground where your weight has been, not really an issue, particularly with the footprint.
Zips are good, the fly opens from the bottom and the top, you can trap the outer if you're not careful, there's a Velcro fastened fly over the outer zips.
It's semi free standing, I seldom peg out the guys, but the outer needs pegging out to stabilise it.
There's room to sit up inside, the walls are quite steep and there's a loop to fasten your torch to. Two internal pockets, though one at either end.
Putting up takes a few minutes, taking down about the same. The bag has compression straps and a wide opening.
I'd buy it again. Wild Country make Terranova tents too.
