Spitfire 1

rated 5 of 5 stars A lightweight 1-person shelter with adequate room for the average person and gear, with very durable materials that appear to be a long-lasting product in a very affordable 1-man shelter. Very weatherproof and quick setups and a small footprint to fit in tight spots!! The number one reason that backpackers will carry the extra weight of a tent is for rain and snow protection. The Eureka Spitfire does just that and with an affordable price and it does it very well with a respectable packing weight… Full review

Spitfire 1

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight and robust tent. Good waterproofing. I have nearly a month of nights carrying this tent on backpacking outings in the Carson National Forest in northern New Mexico during the fall and early winter as well as canoeing trip on the Brazos River in east Texas during the summer heat and humidity! This little tent has seen some big climate differences and adapted very well to the situations.  It has been through sweltering sun on 100 plus degree days, 50 plus MPH winds and torrential downpours… Full review

Timberline 2

rated 5 of 5 stars This has been the simplest, roomiest, and toughest tent I've ever used. The frame can be set up under the fly allowing you to pitch a dry tent in the pouring rain.

The quality of tent is unbeatable and the weight of the tent is reasonable, particularly hunting or canoeing. The outfitter's edition (heavier zippers and flooring material) is a little… Full review

Wind River 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Loved the tent. How can you rehab it and clean it? Was bought new, used around five times many moons ago. Former assistant scoutmaster till my knee got blown out in 1990s. I had the knee replaced finally a few years back. The tent cost me $300-350 new. I have come down with "camping fever." Like to listen to hf radio and dx'er too. The customer service folks were able to get me some information about the tent. They answered my e-mail in just a few days. That is real customer service. Can't… Full review

Zeus 2EXO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A very good shelter I have traveled the PCT from end to end three times using a Zeus 1. I love this tent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is easy to put up under any conditions and is light. I have spent time in this tent through really bad rain and wind storms. I wish I could find a new one, but because of the butthead management of Eureka they no longer make them.
