Spitfire 1

rated 5 of 5 stars The best tent I have ever owned, when times used, ease of setup, pack-ability and cost are factored in. I have nicer two-person tents, but for backpacking this my favorite. I have used my Spitfire for years, and it still performs well. Not freestanding but very easy to set up. Still waterproof, and well ventilated. Will want to replace the Eureka stakes with a more sturdy stake, I added the Kelty No-Bendium. I am 6'1", and I fit nicely in this tent. Recently went hiking in Harriman State Park,… Full review

Alpine Meadows

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had my Alpine Meadows 4 for 28 years! It's been a great tent and I have used it for three-season camping regularly. Unfortunately, the kids have put a tear in the tent floor and this past summer I was forced to buy a new tent. Almost 30 years old...still love it! A little heavy for backpacking, but if you split up the poles from the tent two people can pack it in easily. Easy to set up. Roomy. Truly fits four with gear. Three-season. Tolerates wind well. Can't brag enough about it. Note: I… Full review

Timberline 2

rated 1 of 5 stars We have purchased Timberline tents for our Boy Scout troop in the past and found them useful, easy to set up, and good quality (lasting many years). However, the last purchase of eight tents in 2013, was a disaster. Eureka changed the zippers — and they won't stay closed. The teeth on the zippers don't hold, and if you pull the zipper just right, and manage to close the zipper, it pulls open with a very light pull (even the wind will open it). Simply, they won't stay shut! We're now looking for… Full review

Wind River 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased the Wind River 2 back in the '80s and it's still going strong. Purchased the Wind River 2 back in the '80s and it's still going strong. Only thing is I wish I had gotten aluminum poles. Solid tent for car camping or backpacking. I have an old Quest Preying Mantis, Walrus Armadillo, and a North Face, but for some reason I keep taking this tent.  Full review

Midori 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A good value in a two-person, sub-5-pound backpacking tent. I have owned and used Eureka tents for over 20 years and have been very satisfied with their performance and durability. When my early '90s-era Eureka Timberlite 3 started showing signs of its age, it was time to upgrade that tent. My Eureka Timberlite 3 is spacious for two people and durable. So I replaced my Timberlite with a Midori 2. The Midori is an aluminum 2-pole, X-frame dome tent with one side door and one vestibule. The weight… Full review
