User Review: Eureka! Zeus 2 Classic
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $109
Just returned from a very wet weekend of hiking in northern Arkansas. Fortunately found a barn to stay in at night because the vestibule zipper is FUBARed. The tent material got caught up in the zipper head and then split...and I was inside with the dog. Also, without a cover fly, the tent like to form condensation inside below 55 deg. but dries quickly at daybreak.
With that said, I've been a loyal Eureka fanatic and have loved their products in the past without warranty. I'm curious to see if they'll honor their lifetime warranty...free from material defects. If not, I'll surely switch to a Kelty or MSR or some other name brand with good reviews.
- Extremely light-weight
- Plenty of room without large footprint
- Has a vestibule
- Very small package - 4.5 x 14 I'm guessing
- Really durable
- 2 small gear packets inside and five gear tie-offs (can't remember what they're called) in the ceiling
- Zipper design, especially at the vestibule, may need to be reworked...be careful when using it may need to make a fly in 2 of 3 seasons
Requirement: Ultra-light 2-person, 3-season tent, with small pack dimensions.
Enter: Eureka Zeus Classic 2
...with some setbacks
If Johnson's doesn't warranty/repair it, I'll probably sew-in some velcro and go with it.
