User Review: Eureka! Spitfire 1
Price Paid: $80
First of all, I picked up the Spitfire 1 for $80. That's not bad for a ultralight solo tent, thus explaining why I bought it.
I've camped in it in all weather except heavy snow. It kept out water in a heavy downpour, except for one spot. It leaked where the hold open for the rain-fly vent is sewn through the fly. A heavy dose of seam sealer should do the trick.
(Always seam seal your tent, even if it is advertized as already seam sealed.) The "bathtub" bottom design kept everything else dry.
This tent is fairly easy to set up with some practice. The vestibule is very small, though. A backpack can barely fit in this space. I am 6'-2" and I just fit into this tent. Anyone taller than this could have problems.
