User Review: Eureka! Solitaire
Design: Three-season tent
Ease of Setup: Easy
Weight: About 2 pounds
Price Paid: $80
This tent is excellent for the price and weight. I recommend replacing the stakes with aluminum to save weight. The bags are not needed either... stuff this small tent in the top of your pack for extra waterproofing.
I am very tall and the tent still fits me fine. I recommend coupling this tent with a mummy bag. I haven't had it in hard rain yet, but it seems like it won't be a problem. The fabric is very light, so on questionable surfaces I bring along a lightweight tarp to place under the tent to protect it. Sitting up in this tent is not really an option.
My only wish... aluminum poles. Mine are still intact, but I am very careful when raising the tent. Overall, a good buy for the ultralight backpacker.
