User Review: Eureka! K2 XT
Weight: 11 1/2 lbs
Price Paid: $316
I just received my K-2 and went to set it up out in the yard with my girlfriend. We followed the instructions and found the initial sliding of the poles through the sleeves not terribly easy, kept getting caught.
Went to attach the last pole in the grommet and the grommet tore right off. Taking down the tent now with great disappointment met with more frustration of trying to get the poles out with them coming apart while still in the sleeves. Never got to even try the fly on.
I can't imagine trying to do this all on a mountain in the wind and cold, it would have been a nightmare, not including the possibility of the breaking grommet up there with no alternative for shelter. Returned the tent and am considering the EV-3 by Mountain Hardwear, lighter and easy set up.
