Camping Tent Review by: W. Angermani Author Gives 5 Star Rating

Bought this tent for use on a cold weather camping trip at the tail end of winter. Wanted something good; had been dissatisfied with cheaper ones at the discount stores – especially when it plainly said on the box “this tent is not waterproof.” No such problem with Eureka, in fact the important seams on the Eureka are factory taped and it’s very waterproof. It’s a tent that I would take with confidence deep into the backcountry.

Had also wanted something light and sturdy enough for backpacking. Again, dissatisfied with cheap dome tents weighing over 7 pounds; this one is not much more than 3 pounds, being a “half” dome, and is very well constructed. The size is OK for one person; especially easy to get into with the wide side door. The poles and fly worked fine and set up quickly and easily by one person. The fly seems to be necessary for cold weather camping, otherwise there would be too much air flow; with the fly on it feels snug inside. Of course that air flow would be great for warm weather. The short pole for the fly was a bit tight – needed to “bow” it to get it to fit into its slots; may want to use a tube cutter to shorten it 1/4 inch or so.

I like the color; it blends in nice with the woods. For backpacking, will probably replace the steel stakes with something lighter. Then again, I have yet to stake it out. It’s totally free-standing, and even in the wind just a few guy lines kept it in place.
