Design: A-frame freestanding Gold Standard tent
Ease of Setup: Super Easy!
Weight: 7 lbs
Price Paid: $100
This tent is THE Gold Standard for A-frame shaped tents.
During my college days I spent two months with thirty others on a geology-focused camping trip through Alaska. We had about ten different types of tents, including several sizes of the Eureka Timberline. Everyone had a chance to set up and sleep in the various tent brands. The college kids did a lot of "sleeping around" AND tent testing on that co-ed trip!
CONCLUSION OF ALL THIRTY PEOPLE: Timberline is best tent by an order-of-magnitude. It vastly outperformed every other tent we had on that trip. I'll always remember that experience. When you spend 60-days straight sleeping in a tent through wind and rain, you LEARN it really makes a difference to have a quality tent!
