User Review: Eureka! Tetragon 1210
Design: Two-pole Freestanding Dome
Ease of Setup: Easy single person setup. Took 10 minutes
Weight: 18 lbs, didn't feel heavy.
Price Paid: $109 at Sportmart
I was on the look for a large tent that would fit myself, my wife, and my 8-month infant boy. After extensive research I ended up buying Eureka 1210 from Sportmart for $129 and It also had a $20 rebate, so final cost turned out to be $109. This is awesome as compared to similar size tents from not so good manufacturers being much higher.
Before camping, I sealed the floor, fly, and other exposed seams with recommended Kenyon seam sealer3 to be on the safe side. At camp, I was able to assemble and stand it up all by myself in less than 10 minutes. I was amazed as my previous tent erection caused me an embarrassment as it took 45 minutes of stressful struggle.
The test is very well ventilated, the teal green color blends perfectly with nature and trees, and its floor space is amazing. We were able to setup baby crib, queen mattress, and it still had lots of room left over. Another good thing, I didn’t bump my head into the lantern, not even once. It’s got a decent headroom with me being 5’11” tall
Lastly, condensation... I read that all tents result in some condensation. But this tent had Zero condensation. It was cold nights in Yosemite National Park. We also used Coleman Procat heater inside the tent all nights to keep our baby warm. We were concerned that heater will maximize condensation. Whatever it was, tent or heater, it did the trick as we got no condensation at all.
We were four families with same tents on two sites, with everyone extremely pleased with this quality tent. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a spacious tent that doesn’t cause condensation.
