User Review: Eureka! Backcountry 1
Source: borrowed it
I've borrowed one of these from a friend for two weeks out in the woods for work. Simply amazing. Had a really heavy rainstorm for two days straight and I was the most dry SOB out there (they used the army issued crap). I really want to get myself one of these.
- Lightweight, easy to pack
- Keeps person and equipment dry in torrential downpours
- Easy to setup and tear down
- Space is plentiful
- Stakes are terrible and weak
- They are expensive (you get what you pay for)
Although a brand new one is very expensive, they are worth it. The durability on these puppies is great. I'm saving to buy a brand new one for my camping trips in the future.
The stakes are total garbage, but that is an easy fix. The best thing I've ever done with certain pieces of camping equipment was mixing and matching parts. Trial and error.
I look forward to owning one and using it often.
