Spitfire 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for the $$, and reliable. Aside from going to a hammock, you cannot beat the size/weight of this little killer. It is pretty darn reliable. I took this backpacking on a few occasions where I needed more security than a hammock could offer, or needed room for my dog. Goes up super easy, and has a very simple design. Has enough room for your pack or your dog, as long as either isn't too big. Top vent is a little questionable, as it is a semi-rigid piece of material that secures upward to Velcro… Full review

Timberline 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Great motorcycle/car/canoe tent have had mine for over 20 years. A few years back I got a Timberline 6. Don't like it nearly as well the extra height makes it much slower to set up. I have had a Timberline 4 since 1987. Camped in all kinds of weather way wetter and colder than I would now. It always performed well. Just watch placement. Don't set up so wind is blowing in your fly. It is a great all around work horse. It may not be the best at any one thing, but it does a lot well. Setup is easy… Full review

Spitfire 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A spacious one-person-and-dog to two-person tent for most conditions. The Eureka Spitfire 2 is my first tent. I've had it for almost four years, and in that time it has housed me for two months during a road trip across the States, hiked the John Muir trail, and been on the odd winter camping trip in arctic Norway. It's seen Sierra hail storms, windy nights in the Utah desert, windier, wetter nights (and cold ones) in the Norwegian mountains. Basically, I've tested it pretty thoroughly. So let's… Full review

Backcountry 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I have owned this tent for 10 years. I have used this tent in many rainstorms with no leaks.  Pack size good for backpacking. Good ventilation. Don't like the pole sleeves, would rather have clips. The zipper is starting to separate from itself after 10 years. I'm ready to upgrade to a 4-season. Full review

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
