Comments about Eureka Eureka Mountain Pass 3XTE Tent:

We purchased this tent to replace our 20 year old Eureka, Timberline 4. We wanted to go with a little smaller tent that was lighter. This tent is perfect for my wife and I. Plenty of space for sleeping and some gear. This tent has a neat feature in that the Fly has 2 vestibules built right into it, one on each end. Perfect for storing packs and gear out of the rain.

We just got back from a 4 day trip into the BWCA and the tent performed excellent. I would purchase it again.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Mountain Pass 3XTE Tent:

I have been amazed with this tent since I purchased it. To test the tent's performance before a back-country trip I set it up prior to a tropical storm last year and waited till it had past to see the results. Not a drop inside. That set the bar, and the bar hasn't moved. During a backpacking trip on the Art Lobe Trail last year we set up camp on a summit at 6,200 msl; a week before Christmas as a storm was coming in (33 f, 50+ kts). I think I can honestly say that this tent took potentially very dangerous conditions, and turned it into a great story! It did great throughout the entire storm, no water in the tent, and once we got warm were comfortable! As far as space, its great as well; I went on another trip with 2 other friends and brought my 85lb Shepard along; and we all fit. The makers got it right with this one right!!

Comments about Eureka Eureka Mountain Pass 3XTE Tent:

Only have used it a couple of times. Can't truly test it's merit yet. I wouldn't say it's the most recommended backpacker's tent at 8lbs. But it's a lot more spacious than my Kelty Gunnison 2 that I backpack with. Sleeps two people and their gear comfortably.
