Comments about Eureka Eureka Backcountry 1-person Tent:

This tent is well suited for minimalist backpacking. It easily rolls into its sack, and is light weight. It's tall enough to sit up in, and has two good-sized pockets.

It is so easy to assemble, and the hardware is very well made.

I slept through a downpour, and the interior remained dry. The color and height make it great for paramilitary camping and ops.

The only down side of the tent is that you cant sleep in the tent with a moderately sized back pack. I tried two nights, and trying to sleep with my legs propped up on the bag was a nightmare. Next time, I will wrap my bag in a heavy garbage bag, and I will leave it outside.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Backcountry 1-person Tent:

Used this tent on a 2 night hiking trip. I found it to be light enough for multi-day hikes and very easy to set up. Large framed folks like myself may find it a little cramped but otherwise very comfortable. The large screens allow for plenty of ventilation. Good quality.

Excellent Tent, Use It In The Everglades
By R HVerified Purchaser from LAYTON, UT on 2/9/2009

Best Uses:
Backpacking
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Eureka Eureka Backcountry 1-person Tent:

The Eureka Back country 1 is an excellent tent. Recently, I used it in the Everglades for 8 days. It performed quite well in the wind, rain, cold and the free standing portion was handy while sleeping on platforms above the water. I will continue to use this light weight tent in future back packing adventures. I would highly recommend this tent and Sunny Sports as a place to do business.
