User Review: Eureka! Apex 2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $79
This tent is a snap to set up, light enough to pack on the portage, and offers plenty of room for excess gear when used solo. There's a problem with the wind but it's not designed to be wind-proof or air tight. I like this tent for those late summer trips into the Boundary Waters when it can get hot.
- Setup/tear down
- Not 100% water or wind proof
The Apex 2 was exactly what I was looking for in a tent that was easy to portage, a snap to set up, and had plenty of room inside to store my gear.
I took it into the BWCA last September during the Pagami Creek fire episode and when we had to scramble out of Lake Insula to Snowbank Lake, it was really tested. The first few days were in the 80s and the tent's ventilation was sublime. However, by the end of our trip we were pelted with wind, rain and hail, the limitations of that third season rating was exposed.
This tent won't provide the dry comfort when challenged by the elements, but come morning it will still be standing.
