Comments about Eureka Zeus 2 Classic Tent:

I specifically bought this for backpacking in the mountains, and the weight is fantastic. It also has enough room when the weather is warm outside. The condensation problem, however, makes you feel trapped to the center. When my boyfriend and I go camping in the mountains in the fall the condensation soaks our sleeping bags. There is simply not adequate ventilation. However spring and summer it work fine and is very light weight. I love the easy clip setup, takes less than five minutes to assemble. It also has plenty of space at the top and bottom to store a small pack or two. If only the condensation wasn't an issue, I wouldn't have to be visiting sunny sports for a new tent.

I enjoyed the ease of set up and how light it was but I am not too sure of the floor. Feels a little flimsy.

For a 2 man tent, it would be very cramped. For one, it is just the right size. A good tent for the money.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GARY J  The best light weight tent I have ever owned (out of many). Very easy to set up and take down.
Shopper  I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
CORY C  The Backpacker magazine called this the Honda Civic of tents. It's a very light (sub 4 pound) 2 person tent and pretty durable. It's also affordable. I used it on the entire John Mjuir Trail in 2009 plus some extra mileage (250 miles in all). Sets up in 5 minutes or less. It's great for everything except real 4 season weather. It's waterproofing is solid and does well against moderate winds (15-20 mph). The vestibule is big enough to cook if you had to. Now the caveats. It's single wall, so condensation does build up easily. The venting does not work well. Overall, if you're looking for a solid 3 season backpacking tent that is affordable, light, durable, then this is a good choice.
Shopper  How well did it work? Were you happy with it?
MYRON H  I got this tent mainly for ease of set-up and use during trips involving multiple campsite changes. I really like it. I don't use it for backpacking but certainly would if I were still doing that (at the age of 70!). It takes just 5 minutes to set up. Easy as pie. Even though it's supposed to be a 2-person tent, I use it as a 1-person plus a bit of gear. Two people who get along really well could use it comfortably and stow a bit of gear in the vestibule.
