User Review: Eureka! Alpine Meadows
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $100
After 26 years, it's still a terrific tent!
- Easy to set up
- Great climber's tent
- Unavailable now
I bought mine in 1987 and it is still going strong. I bought an after-market Easton aluminum center hoop, and that brought the weight to just under 5 lbs.
I am a serious climber and have used it extensively in the Tetons, Sierras, Rockies, and New England winters. It has easily handled heavy snow (3+ ft) and wind (50 mph). I used it again last summer on the Lower Saddle in the Tetons and had the usual reaction from other climbers: "What a cool tent!" "Where can I get one?" "It's how old?"
We had a good night while the notorious Lower Saddle winds were demolishing a number of other climbers' tents. I wish Eureka would produce it again.
