Midori 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A good value in a 2-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 90's era Eureka Timberlite-3 started showing signs of its age, it was time to upgrade that tent. My Eureka Timberlite-3 is spacious for 2-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 is… 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.

Apex 2XT

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact when packed, easy to use, good starter tent.

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


rated 5 of 5 stars Loved my very first solo tent! I bought this tent for a solo hike on the Dobson Trail. For my first solo tent, I found it very lightweight and compact. Easy setup. No enough instructions for the fly though. Full review

Amari Pass 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars We love our Amari Pass 2 tent. It's roomy, easy to put up. We like the large vestibule. Eureka makes great tents, the detailing is wonderful. The tent fly is color-coded to match the click points. The Amari Pass is my favorite Eureka tent to date. I love the large size for the low weight. This tent is super easy to erect. It pitches with enough tautness to stay stable in wind, which is important down here in the super windy desert climate. We used it in a rain storm and there was NO condensation,… Full review
