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


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good tent, small, light, easy setup. View of the stars, and warm. Picked up this tent for $30 USD, from the Eureka website outlet.  Warning, Eureka's website states that refurbished tents may be dirty. They are not kidding, this tent was extremely muddy. Set it up (and wiped it down) in the backyard last night and slept in it. Very small but I was able to fit my pack and some misc. items I grabbed to test it out. (I am 5'9" and 240 lbs, not a small guy and I fit fine). My sleeping pad also fit,… Full review

Apex 2XT

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact when packed, easy to use, good starter tent. I bought this tent 5 years ago for a ridiculously low price and it has held up remarkably well, despite abuse and nights spent with a hairy, wet, clawed German Shepherd. It's kept me dry in torrential rainstorms and is very easy to set up by yourself, though it fits two adults, gear, and a dog (if you all like to cuddle). Never had any issues with zippers catching or breaking, which is a huge pet peeve of mine. It has always seemed stable and… Full review
