User Review: Eureka! Backcountry 1
Design: 3 season free standing dome
Ease of Setup: With eyes closed
Weight: 1.75 kilos
Price Paid: US $106
Takes 10 mins to set up with no complications. I do a lot of solo outdoor camping in Asia where it rains often. This is the perfect tent to set up in the rain and stay dry in. The mesh makes for great ventilation and the fly stays firm, though it does take a bit of trouble to get the fly in. In the end, I did what another reviewer did, sawed off 3/8 of an inch of the pole and filed it down. Don't know if the fly shrank or the poles were made too long.
Overall though, it's a sturdy trouble-free tent that is convenient and fuss-free. There's also plenty of space to put my pack in. If you don't mind a little extra weight and space, this tent is perfect, though at 1.75 kilos, it's not that heavy and doesn't take up that much space in the pack.
