User Review: Eureka! Solitaire
Price Paid: Free/ gift
I used this tent for the fist time this weekend and i would give it an 8 out of 10. I am 6 foot 2 inches, 165Lbs and i fit wonderfully into this tent. Easy set up and easy take down.
I was a little worried about using this "3 season" in freezing weather. The night i spent in it, the temp was around freezing and the wind was ripping hard. Around 3am the rain started and it didnt stop until about 4pm. I was able to stay completley dry in this tent. no rain got in, maybe a little condensation on the rain fly but nothing major. There was no water under my tarp or sleeping pad.
In the downpour of rain i had to stay in the tent for an extended time, altough i coudln't sit up i made it okay. Was able to cook some lunch on my stove, but had to lay on my stomach to do so (probably unsafe but i was starving).
the major disapointment was when we decided to pack things up and BOTH of my tent poles splintered. I contacted Eureka and they said to send the whole tent and poles back for modifications and part replacement.
Overall i will be happy to use this tent again once they fix it.
