Copper Canyon 8

rated 3 of 5 stars This tent is a great size for long stays. It sets up easily with two people, but one person will struggle. Water seeps up through the floor. We bought this tent because we had two other brands that leaked. We even tried the spray on waterproofers. This was an expensive tent compared with the other two we had previously and I am really not satisfied with it either. Does anyone sell a tent that keeps you dry? Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars I've had mine since 1977. Very strong, but much heavier than today's lightweights. After nearly 40 years I intend to reseal the floor and seams and continue using it. It truly is a classic I've used this in Montana and Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania. I've used it with the kids, with the wife, and with some smelly guys. It's very durable.

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… Full review

Backcountry 1

rated 5 of 5 stars Favorite tent of all time. Perfect for backpacking and bike-camping trips. I've had mine since 2008, and it is still going strong. I just can't imagine using another tent after enjoying this one so much. I've got setup down to around 3 minutes. We have really tough ground in our area, so I've never even attempted to use the stakes. Poles are sturdy and the floor space is good enough for all my gear and myself. Full review

Apex 2XT

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Extremely light and roomy. This tent surpassed my expectations for the price. This tent has been wonderful! The two vestibules make getting in and out a dream in bad climate. I have used it for short backpacking and car camping. On backpacking trips it allowed two of us to store gear outside the main dome and have more then enough room inside and we had a dog. Car camping it was an even better surprise when we found out that a queen size air mattress fits perfectly inside do give us a dream sleep… Full review
