1 Reviews of the Helm Compact 1
By: PetertheCamper Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2021 Rating:
A sturdy one person tent. Able to withstand wind and rain and weighs in at just under 2kg. There is a half moon zip inside giving access to space between the outer and inner. I would have preferred this to be all inner as I would like more space inside. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over 6 feet tall due to its length. No problems with condensation. I use a footprint which keeps the groundsheet clean and provides an entrance porch floor. The price, like all things, has gone up and it's now £250 on the Terra Nova website.

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 a 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.
Key differences between the Helm Compact 1 and Helm 1:
Helm Compact 1 is quicker and easier to pitch with combined pegging point for flysheet and inner, new flysheet colour, yellow reflective guylines with cleat style runners, side opening tarp style tent bag, compact pack size (30x17cm), ventilation panels only on the front and rear door.
We recommend using a footprint that sits under the groundsheet and porch area to help prolong the life of your tent. A footprint for the Helm Compact 1 is available.
A 2 and 3 person version of this tent are available Helm Compact 2 and Helm Compact 3
