Summary

Purchased the Wind River 2 back in the '80s and it's still going strong.

Pros

  • Built like an old Timex. Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin.

Cons

  • Fiberglass poles hard to slide through sleeves.

Purchased the Wind River 2 back in the '80s and it's still going strong. Only thing is I wish I had gotten aluminum poles. Solid tent for car camping or backpacking.

I have an old Quest Preying Mantis, Walrus Armadillo, and a North Face, but for some reason I keep taking this tent.

Welcome to Trailspace, Chris! It sounds like you have some solid older tents still going strong. I'd love to see pics of them in your review(s) and to learn more.

Very tough tent, also very practical with back window, and the green tarp cover, the coolest tent imaginable. I still love mine after all these years.

I have used this tent in every season and I use it now primarily for my winter/mountaineering tent. I have had it for 15 years and have never had a single problem. I have the full cooking vestibule, polyvinyl footprint and attic.

I was sold on it when three of us spent 18 hours in the tent on top of Algonquin Mountain in the high peaks of N.Y. in February. Bombproof. Only wish Eureka still made them! Definitly not a one-person tent though...I split the tent between myself and girlfriend to lighten the weight with ultralight stuffsacks.

I have had my Wind River for probably 15 years -- maybe more?? I've camped for 45 years maybe more and this little tent is the darndest thing I've ever seen. When everyone else around me is sleeping wet -- we're high and dry -- I've taken this tent everywhere and it had served me well.

Now for the bad luck -- I was out last weekend and one of the rods came up missing -- can I replace it -- or am I doomed to buy a new less exciting tent??

I didn't actually buy this tent, it was handed down to me. The previous owner had had it for a couple of years before me. It never failed him and the only problem I had was the zipper and that was easy to get fixed.
