User Review: Eureka! Backcountry 1
Price Paid: 100-130?
- Waterproof as a duck's butt.
- None if it rains!
A great little tent. Easy to set up, relatively light and very straightforward.
If I want to go super light, I don't bring a tent, so this tent does its job perfectly. It is roomy and simple enough for car camping, and compact/light enough for backpacking, a truly useful tent.
I am 5'10" and using my large backpack as a pillow, could still easily stretch out in this tent.
The interior allows plenty of room for changing clothes, and you can keep all of your hiking gear to include your rifle in the tent while you sleep.
This tent is the best I have ever used, no question.
Simple, no fancy pants stuff, but it works awesome. Durable and free standing. You can set this cat up after being bone tired with minimal effort. Run the poles, stand her up, crawl inside, and rack out. Waterproof as a duck's butt. You will be bone dry. I am super impressed with this tent.
