User Review: Eureka! Spitfire UL
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $120
Excellent tent for one person, plenty of room for me and pack.
- Good design with enough room inside for me and pack
- Fly started coming apart but whole tent was replaced!
I have used this tent on the AT, and on the FL. trail in both rocky areas, sand and in timber rough soil for several years. The first three nights it rained hard with wind gust up to 50 mph. By stretching out the fly with the guy lines it stood up well. A little splash, misting really at the foot was all the problem I had.
I do put my pack inside and prop my head against the waist belt; plenty of room, I am 5' 9". The vestibule has enough room for my boots.
The problem was with the fly sticking to itself and starting to leak. I contacted Eureka about the problem. They had me send the tent back to Johnson Outdoors for evaluation. After looking at the tent they determined that it was under warranty and replaced the whole tent!!
