Comments about Eureka Eureka Spitfire 2 Two-person Tent:

Second review. This tent is a good value esp when it can be gotten as low as [$]. To get a lighter tent the same size you better break the piggy bank. It has aluminum poles which I much prefer. The poles clip rather than sleeve but I think this is a weight issue and clips are holding up fine after about 12 nights of use. I went island camping on Lake George in July, VERY hot. Was I glad I was in this tent, just tie or flop back the fly(or remove) and catch some air. My brother sweltered in his low end Eureka dome(tetragon). In addition one of his fly poles broke and this is only the second time he's used it. Must recommend to stay away from that line. Tetragons are Eureka in name only. Two thumbs up for the Spitfire.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Spitfire 2 Two-person Tent:

The Eureka 2 person tent is better than I expected. Easy to setup and space for two large people and extras. Performs well in wind or rain. You will be able to put your pack and boots inside, rather than outside - which I greatly prefer. You do have to stake it, but it's easy. You will want to upgrade the stakes.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Spitfire 2 Two-person Tent:

Used on my 1st backpack in 33 years(I am 54). Also used on Mt Charleston, Nevada for car camping. Main body of tent sets up easy, its a little tricky to get the fly real tight, I had to move a couple of pegs. Nevada there was a light snow.Good results. Backpack trip in NY there was a light rain all evening and night. Tent stayed dry except right around one edge, no biggie. More to do with terrain I set up on and no ground cloth. Plenty of room for adult and large dog and gear(no vestibule). In and out easy due to side doors so suitable for two people. Flap back fly door provides great view of sky.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Spitfire 2 Two-person Tent:

I use this tent for summer / fall and can't wait to use it for bow season here in Michigan. The spitfire 2 person is so easy to set up and take down. Only needing 2 stakes to set up without the rain fly. You are also able to see all the way around you in this tent(sitting up or laying down) which really lets you enjoy the view day or night. My lab loves it too..

Comments about Eureka Eureka Spitfire 2 Two-person Tent:

With pegs and ground cloth, 5# is divided fairly equally for 2.5# per person for 2 backpackers. 38Sq. ft is a lot of room for the weight in a double wall tent. Room for comfort for 2 plus room for gear in this tent. Great value. I used for bowhunting elk for just myself and gear and was super roomy and comfortable withstanding hailstorms, and for my wife and I on backpacking trips, enjoying the 2 doors, room, safe from bugs and snakes,and easy to carry divided for two.
