Increased strength, weatherproofness, and internal space are the characteristicsof our new Timberline SQ Outfitter 4.
The use of our proprietary SQ frame, incorporating an oversized 13mm ridge pole, provides a strong and resilient frame for extended use. The SQ frame's spreader pole increases the tent's internal volume by 24% so there is more useable space for cots and gear.
We have improved weather proofness by lengthening the fly and extending the ends of the fly to create vestibule wings for added wet weather protection to the door and windows.
An often overlooked, but greatly appreciated feature of the SQ frame is the raised entry height of the fly eve, making it easier to enter and exit the tent.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Timberline SQ Outfitter 4 Tent:

timberlines are great. My two man timberline is almost 35 years old. They are great in the wind, the a frame really holds the tent in place. The full rain fly keeps moisture out. Really a breeze to set up and take down. So after all the years owning the two man, I tried a Coleman dome style tent. What a mistake. I immediately went back to a larger timberline. I have slept in it in the winter with my son, in the howling wind, no problems. This timberline outfitter is awesome. The vestibule holds a lot of gear and improves the wind profile also. I use the footprint, some people complain that it is too thin. But it is the same material the stake bag and bottom of the tent. The material is light, but It is also tough. I also use the floor saver inside the tent. Between the footprint and the floor saver, I have not had any damage to the tent floor and I have set up on some very rocky ground. With the floor saver inside the tent, you can fold it up when you leave and any dirt that found it's way into the tent can be taken out with the floor saver.

The only downside is it is not a tall tent. Sub five feet. Not a problem for me. But there is a 6 person timberline that is 6 feet 4 inches. You can back pack with this tent, but you will have to divide up the pieces. Otherwise it is too heavy for one person.

This is an outstanding tent. It will probably outlast me and get passed down to my son.

Comments about Eureka Eureka Timberline SQ Outfitter 4 Tent:

O.K., first lets get one thing out of the way. It's not light. I weighed the tent and all of it's contents just out of the box in the large bag and it was 11 lbs 8 oz. I have since gotten rid of some of the bags and extra's I don't need along with some of the weight. I usually use sturdy dead wood and make my own stakes, It cuts down on carry weight. Still it's heavy and impractical for single hikers. This is a tent for at least two people. Divide the tent and distribute it with others and you won't carry much more than a standard (not ultralight) two man tent. Now to the good stuff. This tent is so impressive! The quality is fantastic. The stitching is extremely strong. I found absolutely no weak spots. I am a larger than average man (6-03 and 230lbs). I have more than enough room for myself, my wife, our gear, and our dog. The fly is much better than the standard version of this tent as it is longer. I've seen reviews where some complained about the spreader bar being difficult. Honestly, I don't think some would be satisfied unless their tent set itself up, carried them inside and tucked them warmly in their $800.00 sleeping bags. Quality and confidence sometimes take a few extra (but worthy) steps. I can set this tent up in 5 to 10 minutes every time, less if I am not being too particular. I was looking for a no nonsense honest to goodness storm-proof shelter. One that would last for many many years if taken care of. One that gave me, my wife and our dog a "no worries" place to shelter when we hike and camp deep in the woods. I tried a two man tent and it just wasn't working, no room to breath for me. The three man tents still were a little lacking in either width or length. Most of the time my head and feet pressed firmly into the sides of the tent in the night unless I stayed in one cramped position all night long. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to carry anymore weight than I have to, but I also want to sleep comfortably, with room to stretch, room for gear, and no worries that I'll get wet. I use this tent to hike and camp, car camp, and camp while hunting. The quality of the Timberline series is legendary not only in hype, but for real! This tent will withstand what nature throws at you short of a hurricane or tornado. The frame is extremely strong and when the fly is guyed out, the tent is there to stay! It's not an ultralight sil-nylon fits in the palm of your hand kind of preppy shelter. This tent is made in old fashioned better than needed quality that would probably outperform and outlast most others in it's class. I've brought up the weight of this tent several times in this review. That said, don't be afraid to purchase this tent as a pack tent. If you regularly carry a 50 lb plus pack on your adventures this won't add anything extra except peace of mind to you and your party. If you are a single hiker, or everyone in your party is small to medium. There are probably much more choices for you out there. But if you are a large man and need a shelter large enough to house you, a friend or two and your gear...you may find a tent as good, but I would challenge you to find one better!

Comments about Eureka Eureka Timberline SQ Outfitter 4 Tent:

The support pole that crosses the main ridge pole is a bit cumbersome. It fits into pockets on the tent & also pockets on the fly. Hard to do by yourself, but I managed. VERY solid, tough, well built tent. A bit heavy for backpacking, but would be fine for canoe-camping, car camping, etc. highly recommended!
