Excellent solo tent.

Excellent tent for backpacking.With this tent solo means just that.Not alot of room for storing gear inside.The first thing I did after the inital setup was to tape the fiberglass poles to help prevent them from splintering. Keeping the fly rolled in good weather is great for stargazing.This tent kept me dry during a 12 hour down pour while out on a 15 day hike in Northern Maine. Best of all, This is a GREAT TENT for the price.

Well, it kind of worked

This product was a living nightmare. The only thing it managed to do was keep me and other members of our team alive. From the Fiber-glass poles breaking to the fact this thing leaks, I will not be buying anymore of these tents.

Eureka Solitaire

By

Its an inexpensive tent, its light and has some nice features & some not so nice. Its only a couple of pounds, and fits a person, gear and a dog!!! Its not freestanding without being staked in . The tent poles do not thread easily as the joints catch on the sleeves. The fly is attached making setup without the fly clumsy. It is a great light little tent thats useful for me and my dog, Myra!

Worthless poles make a worthless tent

By

Before buying this tent for a bike tour I had read the reviews. There were a lot of statements about pole breakage, but I'd owned the Eureka Timberline years before and was thoroughly happy with it. So I took a chance on this tent. Bad mistake. The first pole sectional broke on use #8. I had already contacted Eureka and asked if I could have a replacement pole set before I was going to need it due to what many people said. I was informed that the company would only send one replacement. Well, when it broke, I asked for it. It was sent, but strangely, perhaps because I raised hell about how a company could produce such an inferior product, I was also offered the Spitfire instead. This made no sense - offer a tent worth double the price instead of just improving what is a major flaw with the Solitaire thus losing business. I was also informed that if I didn't want that, I could contact a certain company which specifically makes quality replacement poles for this tent... at half the price of the tent! Welcome to Eureka. By usage #20, 3 other sections had broken. I had kept the original pole set so I could use the sections as replacements (think McGyver), but now I was out (all breaks always occurred with the rear pole). I now have a tent which only uses the front pole. Utterly useless when it rains and spaciousless for general use. Will never buy from Eureka again.

Great tent, but cheap poles

By

I have been using this tent for about a year and a half. It's a great lightweight tent, does well in the wind and the rain and is easy to set up. The only problem is that the fiberglass poles are pretty flimsy and will eventually break. Both the front and rear poles started snapping after using it for less than a year. Eureka replaced both poles for free, but after about ten uses with the replacement poles they started breaking again. Since the poles have to bend almost 180 degrees they are pretty thin. Unless Eureka finds some way to design better poles that are both durable and flexible this tent is not a good long term investment.

This tent is a must have to be used under the right conditions. (Not free standing) Super light weight and ample iterior space with enough head to pack a 45L backpack. Bath tub floor with no seams. I used this tent below freezing conditions for 3 days with light and heavy rain and keep me dry (no leaks) Is not a quick set up; the base and fly need to be peg down separate to be fully strecht. the fly does not include attachment clips which means double the work and time for set up. it comes with 3 guidelines needed regardless of weather to fully create the tubular shape, without them the fly will touch the mesh acumulating condensation. the entrance has a single zipper. Overall a good tent for the right conditions.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Keith D  Best price I have ever seen on this product.
Matthew M  While looking at tents on Ebay, I saw an advertisement for this item in my browser. I ended up loosing the bid and bought the same item at Sunny Sports.
Shopper  Why did you choose this model, over the Eureka Spitfire Solo?
JENNIFER J  Actually, I think I will purchase the Spitfire for my next bike tour. The Solitaire poles have snapped and it feels like a coffin; absolutely no room to sit up. Also, the entry door design makes it difficult to get in when the rain fly is unrolled. I think at the time I purchased it, I did not research very thoroughly and it was the least expensive lightweight model I could find. Hope this helps.
JAY H  Price was one reason. I got it on sale. The other was I really like the zip open roof. Un-zip it and you can stand up and make your exit (only if the rain fly is off of course). The tent has held up well for such a light weight tent. If you are a taller person or have more gear, you may be better off with the Spitfire model, as it is a foot longer and only a few oz heavier. Good luck with your choice. I have alway had good luck with the Eureka brand.
JEREMY R  I prefer the available option of the zipper fly on top of the solitaire. It makes getting in and out of tent much easier for a 6'1" guy.
MIKE N  I bought it because it was cheaper. You get what u pay for the solitaire broke the first use!
CEDRIC C  I chose the Eureka solo because it is light and affordable. I needed a light tent to do a eight days trek alone and it served the purpose. However, there is major draw back to this product. One of the pole did not fit properly and it broke the first day of the trek. Thankfully, I had duck tape and I did a kick fix which held the rest of the trip.Later, I replaced both poles with aluminum pole. I think it is a great affordable product and, the quality is fine for the price. It is difficult to find a tent under 3 pounds for that price.
JEFFRY S  It has been quite a while since I purchased the tent but I seem to remember it was purchased based on price (I purchased 3 of them).
JEFFREY A  The spitfire is a good choice as well, especially with a little more vertical room, but for me, the solitaire met my basic requirements at half the cost.
Gary L  In reading some reviews: I saw one person at 5'11'" who said is feet were up against the bottom end and so got wet. And another who said at 6'2" it was big enough for him. I'm 6'2" and having trouble finding a 1 person tent that I feel is long enough. Ideally I would like to be able to lay on my back in a sleeping bag with my feet pointed straight up and still have a couple inches of clearance at both ends. Will the solitaire work?
DANIEL P  I'm 6'5 and if You fix your self nice inside you will be able to lay dow but is a little hard in a so the place like this
ANTHONY M  Gary, I''m 5'10" and it never occurred to me that the tent could be too short. I lived and slept in this tent for a week while elk-hunting with my son (he had his own tent) in the Cascades and I slept supine with some of the 'sensitive' gear below my feet and without any problem. I wish I still had the tent. My son liked it so much, he kept it , uses it often and he is 6'1". I'll probably buy another one this spring as it worked very well.
Gary L  Thank you, think I'll give it a try. Gary
ANTHONY M  Gary,
KASEY A  I think I might be the person who's 5'11" and wrote the review...because there's no real vestibule in this tent, you have to have your backpack behind you (i.e.; as a pillow) or store it outside the tent. Since I live in a less-than-dry climate, I have to shuffle down to fit with the backpack. This tent produces a lot of condensation if you don't have the fly rolled back, but if you're not backpacking / camping somewhere with moisture issues (that cause condensation or require you to utilize the backpack pillow method), you'll be fine. I have to say, though I no longer have this tent because my partner and I need an 2-person tent, that it was an AWESOME tent overall. I got spoiled by carrying something that rolled down to about the size of a basketball and had spindly (albeit sometimes scarily so) poles that didn't take up too much room in my pack. The fact that you could roll the rainfly back and look at the stars (or escape through the zipper in the mesh so you don't have to climb out the front) was wonderful. Most of the nights I spent in the tent, though, it was too cold to enjoy this option. Happy shopping!
Gary L  Thank you, think I'll give it a try. Gary
JEFFRY S  I purchased 3 of these tents for me & my sons for a 4 day stint on the AT. I'm the tallest at 6'0". If I lay on my back & push my head close to the entrance, I have about 4" of space at the bottom of the tent. I like this tent because if you sleep without the rain cover (which we did on the AT) you can unzip the top part from head to foot and step into it as opposed to crawling in from the top. My experience is that a 6'2" person can fit in this tent with a couple of inches to spare (especially for the price of these tents).
Gary L  Thank you, think I'll give it a try. Gary
ERIC B  You should be fine. I'm 5 6 and there's at least 1 1/2 feet extra for me To wiggle around in.
Gary L  Thanks Eric, think I'll give it a try.
