An ultra-lightweight compact shelter for solo campers, ideal for bike tours, multi-day treks, expeditions and wild camping.


Super lightweight and sturdy with a tiny pack size, the OEX Phoxx EV 1 tent has been made for quick, easy shelter when you're on the move.

It's made from a tough Nylon 30D / 270T fabric core, coated inside with PU (Polyurethane) to aid strength, waterproofing and seam sealing. On the outside, a SI (Silicone) membrane provides a flexible, highly water-resistant coating that beads water droplets whilst still flexing in heavy windy conditions. Its lower HH rating and weight don't translate to it being less waterproof in real conditions, and the slippery outer surface helps to shed snow too. 

You can also choose to pitch it using the inner only, giving you lightweight insect protection if you're 'fair weather' camping.  

The Yunan T6 tent poles will perform in all conditions and last for season after season, while the low-profile streamlined design, robust flysheet and groundsheet mean it's tough enough for stormy weather and light and easy enough to take with you on any adventure.

Great for wild camping

I have used this tent for the West Highland Way, John O'Groats Trail and a number of other multi-day expeditions and can thoroughly recommend. It is light, compact and ideal for speed hiking.

Great Value

Excellent quality, build, weight & performance

Excellent 1 man tent. Straight out the bag the poles & Ali stakes are a nice touch, light weight & feel well made. Had 2 nights @-3 & - 5 it held up well to ice on the sheet. Slightly cramped but OK.

Excellent lightweight and compact backpacking tent

Weight 1.3kg

I'm 6ft1 and I fitted fine.

Plenty of space in the sides for my 70l bag and boots.

Was bone dry inside after 6 hours of heavy driving rain.

Extremely compact.

Quick to put up.

Used for 7day motorcycle camp in the French/Spanish pyrenees

Ok for the money, I'm 6ft 16stone. Had my gear in with me so a little cramped but cheap wine made me forget all that. Some condensation in the morning but sorted by pegging the outer higher on pegs.

not bad, not good

Sooo, there is no room for your stuff, which means you have to leave out your packpack in the rain,
The structure is not so stable;
+++ small thus your breathe can warm it quite easily

Great little tent.

Spent 3 nights in this in Eskdale this week. Rained almost the whole time, but I was always dry and warm. No moisture inside the 'bedroom'. Slightly tricky getting in & out in the rain. Bargain.

Light and Waterproof

Fantastic little tent awesome for trekking.
Light waterproof and quite roomy for 1.
Not much head room as expected but enough space for everything.
Vestibule for pack/cooking while open.

Superb tent for bikepacking

Just spent three nights in this tent at a back to basics campsite in the Brecon Beacons. First it’s compact so this tent, a sleeping bag and an inflating mat all fitted in one pannier. Second it’s easy to erect and looks good. Temperature at night fell to about 5^C but I was certainly kept warm. It’s small; that’s the point of a backpacking tent. And yes, there will be condensation on the inside of the fly sheet in the morning. But not on the inner surface next to you. Superb adventure; look forward to the next one.

Soaking wet with condensation every night.
Zero room to move inside, and I'm a skinny guy!
Had my Snugpak stratosphere and DD tarp posted to me, posted this junk home.
Shocked you stock this to be honest

Worth every penny

This has been an awesome little tent and has really impressed me. It only takes 2-3 mins to setup and packs away quite small. I've had it out in all weather and has withstood some pretty horrendous downpours. If you're looking to buy this tent you need to be aware it is sleeping room only. You cannot sit up or cook in it. I coupled it with a light weight poncho and walking poles as a makeshift porch to overcome this. I can get my pack inside too if used as a pillow. pillow around 1.25kg

Great lightweight tent

Used this tent on a two week hiking holiday in the Azores, super lightweight so was easy to carry in my pack. Very quick and easy to put up and down. It is small so really only for sleeping as can't sit up in it but great for this purpose.

Fantastic buy

I bought this tent for a 4 day expedition in the Highlands in September time and it didn't let me down. It is incredibly light and compact. Very easy to put up and solid in extremely harsh conditions. Stood up to extreme gusts and heavy showers. Stayed dry and very easy to pack away. I'm 5'4" and there was room for me and my 70L rucksack but I think taller people may struggle to fit a large rucksack into the tent with them but there is some room in the outer part of the tent. It's a tent for sleeping in, not recommended if you want to be able to sit up, although I'd still give it 10 out of 10 for mountaineering expeditions.

Very small, very light weight tent for sleeping in only.

Bought this tent for back packing. Weight and pack size is excellent. It's very well made. It's a minimalist tent so don't expect too much. It's very quick to put up with practice. It's purely a tent to sleep in and for that it does the job well. It will keep you and a small amount of kit warm and dry or if you keep the inner door open into the porch. you can fit a 60/70l rucksack in with you. There is small storage space on both sides but an outer door only on one side. Very well priced too

small review on delivery

I ordered this tent last friday and it has already arrived(monday) in holland. That's really fast. I'm happy because it fits perfectly in my 26L backpack, together with sleeping bag, clothes and some small things. I bought this tent for it's packing size. I think this is as light as I can go on a budget.

Haven't tried the tent yet will review it later. Will use it for hitch-hiking, so no deep forest camping. Just sleep and out. The quality seems good. I like the aluminium poles and pegs.

Ideal for my purposes

After 3 practices in the garden I can now get this tent up in under 5 minutes - very easy. Its inner pitch first which wont be ideal in wet conditions but with a bit more practices I'll be able to set it up with the inner already attached.

It's been used on 3 separate wild camping excursions (including a Munro Summit Camp) and has preformed very well. Its very light and compact and the poles and pegs are particularly well crafted.

On my latest excursion it was both wet and windy and it stayed dry and rigid and with good vents there have been no issues yet with condensation.

The inner tent has zips both sides so you get double porch storage - I would like to have had zips on both sides of the outer sheet too - being able to prop up both outer sheets with poles simultaneously may have given more room to sit and get boots on and off.

The only small drawback is that it is almost impossible to get any boots or kit on and/or off in this tent no matter what your size or height you are and you can't sit up in it. That said, I knew what I was purchasing and it is only for getting a few hours sleep and shelter. I'm 5'7 and I'd say that if you were 6ft+ you may want to look at a slightly bigger option.

A great start

Have only wildcamped for three days so far. Nice and lightweight, easy to pitch, comfortable with room to set up and have a good nights sleep. Looking forward to trying in more testing conditions.

Little phoxx

Slept in this on the Easter bank holiday for the weekend which was a 2 night stay wild camping in Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. Ok first off.... quick pitch lucky it was not raining as this is a inner pitch first which I think they should change. Anyway 10 mins later it rained all day with sleet. The tent really is great waterproofing and the vents work nice. After 5hrs in the tent with it still raining, the windy storm came and the little phoxx stood up to it no problem. The pegs are amazing!!! Cooked in the porch-way with my hiking stick holding up the door making it a great shelter. Only thing I found annoying is getting in and out of the tent with your clothes wet and taking them off which is hard to do near impossible so learning by my mistake next time im getting a tarp for the wet conditions. Also taking your boots off and on whilst crouched down hanging out of the tent is tricky. Also the porch needs to be bigger as it's small and I have an 80ltr rucksack but squeezed it in with the lumps showing.. Don't get me wrong this is a great tent for hiking but I'd defo get a tarp in winter or wet conditions. Can't wait to try this out in the summer. It's better made than the phoxx 1 I think. You can't sit up in it but I like to lay in my tent so was not an issue. Overall I would say this is a great tent if your the right person who would benefit from it. OEX as made a great stealth tent here but please make it outter first we live in England also make porch wider them this tent would be excellent.

Great tent just to get your head down

People complain about these tents been too small, I really do suggest trying it out for size before getting one. This is a great tent after a hike and you want to get your head down and go to sleep. You can't sit up in it so I strongly suggest a OEX tarp if needed in winter conditions. The vent situation is great and the fly sheet beads well. This is a tent for people on the move and somewhere to kip. Don't expect anything more. Only thing I would change on the next model is outter pitch first and male the porch area bigger for a hikers 70lter pack. Overall great light tent and greatly made.

Not reccomended

While it may be ok for summer use, it suffers terribly from condensation,and in reality, its initial attraction of low profile stealth camping is also it's downfall. In practice, it's barely possible to unzip the sleeping bag without being a contortionist. I slept out in it in late March,2018. Initially, it seemed light I woke at 3am, to find the inner tent really wet with condensation. I don't see how they justify the extra cost of this tent against the cheaper phox 1. If anything,the phox ev1, seems poorer quality. I think the cheaper, and seemingly better quality phox 1 may be better in terms of condensation, as it has larger mesh areas on the inner tent. On the flysheet, the condensation was so bad, I wondered if it was leaking in some places, but I can't say for definite. If you want a tent as a standby emergency shelter, it's probably ok, but even allowing for its limitations, it's so small as to be practically unusable. If you could sleep through the whole night, without ever having to get out,it would be ok, but in reality, it's it's i attraction soon fades when put to the test. Probably ok for summer use,but even then, I can't really see the condensation problems being any different. I can't see how oex can justify the extra cost of this tent, against the cheaper one. Not only does the quality seem worse, the flysheet is rated at 3000, where the phox one is rated at 5000.
