This is my second Eureka! tent and I bought it because of good past experience (27 yrs of it) in a Timberline 4 outfitter! I'll write that review next. I have only used the Backcountry 2 once, on a 4 day in Allegheny NF, Penn. The first night out it poured all night, but I was dry and snug. After reading the other reviews, I do see how wind could drive rain under the fly and into the tent,but not my experience.
The fly does well in straight down rain, that I can attest to! The tent is simple to set up, though the long poles are a little awkward. I'll get used to that. I really like the room inside. I generally hike solo and I have plenty of room for gear and ample headroom.
