User Review: Eureka! Backcountry 1
Design: 3-season freestanding
Ease of Setup: "t'aint bad!"
Weight: 3 lb 14 g
I love this tent. It's seen a fair amount of action so far and has yet to disappoint. There's plenty of mesh for great star-gazing and ventilation, a burly set of poles for stability, and (best of all) room to party! The Backcountry packs enough room for my 6'1" self to lie comfortably with room on both sides AND with my entire pack inside at my feet. The lack of a vestibule means nothing with this behemoth of a one-man. Not only that, but it also provides just enough space for a close two-person night under the stars!
It can be a pain in the rear to get the fly-poles actually attached to the fly, but aside from that this is a great tent. I feel like it deserves an apology every weekend it lies untouched on the floor. If you don't mind carrying a little more weight than other one-mans, this tent could be for you.
