Alpine Meadows

rated 5 of 5 stars I've owned this tent for 30 years and just realized it this summer. I have never even thought about getting a different one. I've used it for backpacking, canoeing, hunting, and scouting trips over those 30 years and it has never let me down. Except I would like to get a new bag for it, the old one is sticky from the waterproofing. It's held up in all four seasons and is always reliable in the wind and rain. I've only sealed the seams once that I can recall. I don't know why it was discontinued,… Full review

K-2 XT

rated 5 of 5 stars Great all around tent, in wind and rain. I've had this tent going on 20 years, mostly used in canoeing. A little heavy for backpacking, but the comforts outweigh that issue. I have always loved tents, had several including a close Sir Edmund Hillary, but this is my favourite. Camping here in Newfoundland, Canada, can bring all four seasons in one day, and the Eureka K-2 XT can handle it. Full review

Zeus 2EXO

rated 3 of 5 stars Good tent. Needs a rain fly. I used this tent several time in the mountains in CA and CO. It took me about five times to realize that if you sleep head-in vs head-by-the door, it vents your breath through the ceiling vent over your head—no condensation problem.  That worked fine until last time camping in all night constant rain for the first time. I am not sure if it leaked or if the rain sealed the ventilation in the surface, but it was like sleeping in drizzling rain inside the tent. I am… Full review

Mt. Isolation 65L Pack

rated 2 of 5 stars Loved the design, but this pack was uncomfortable and impossible to keep adjusted during a rugged week long hike. Load lifters poorly designed and strap adjustment needed frequent attention. Problems with pack shifting due to shoulder yoke attachment to pack rails. I purchased my Eureka Mt. Isolation 65L backpack a few years ago directly from Eureka at the Toronto Sportsman Show along with a number of other items. It appeared to be a good quality backpack and I was assured that it was designed to… Full review

Tetragon 1610

rated 5 of 5 stars We had this tent for over 20 years and used it frequently for family camping with a family of 6. Loved it—lots of space, easy to set up, and stayed dry (we seam sealed twice over the tent's lifetime. We loved this tent for over 20 years. It finally died when we had it set up in the backyard and my teenagers were playing hide and seek at night and my 20-year-old went tripping full run speed thru the guidewires and ultimately ripped the guide rope connection from the tent. Highly recommend this… Full review
