User Review: Eureka! Backcountry 1
Design: 3.5 season, Al pole, freestanding
Ease of Setup: A kid could do it
Weight: Slightly less than 4.5 lbs
Price Paid: $100
Absolutely fantastic solo tent. This tent has never let me down in the rain- not a single drop inside! Ventilation is also superb as I have yet to experience any condensation issues. The rectangular floor is easy to divide up amongst you and you gear, although you may be wishing for a bit more space- floor measures about 8' x 3'.
Setup is a breeze, and guying out (if needed) takes no time at all. I'm 5'10" tall, and the interior height allows me to sit up straight with no problems at all. The tent has two mesh gear pockets placed near the floor (one at your hand, the other at your head). The darker green color can be a bit depressing inside during a rainy day, but who cares at night.
I highly recommend this tent for soloists who want a reasonably lightweight, super dry shelter at a great price.
