Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent- Get the Aluminun Poles I bought this tent a few years ago and have had it out in the back country desert a dozen times or more. For the price and the weight I could not have chosen a better tent. The size of the fly always made me nervous about rain. But I have never gotten wet and I've stayed warm when it dropped below freezing. I read reviews about the poles before I bought my tent and decided to purchase a model from a Canadian outfitter that came with aluminum poles. In addition I cut my own ground cover out of Tyvek (for free!). Used together, I have never had any problems with wear or durability. I highly recommend the aluminum pole. I expect to be using this tent on solo trips for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had this tent for a few years Never had any problems with it at all. Maybe they changed the pole material over the years, but the one I got in about 2012 held up fine for a long time. Only broke when I lent it to some family members who broke the zipper and attempted to fix it only making it worse. The best part about this tent is how warm it is. If it were free standing I would definitely be willing to call it a 4 season. Can't tell you how many times I woke up to everything outside frozen, but I was nice and toasty inside. There was the downside though of having frozen boots because there's no vestibule or room inside for them. I'd definitely recommend it as a first backpacking tent, simply on the great price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The fiberglass poles break easily The fiberglass poles both broke on me the second time I set the tent up. Finding replacement poles is a pain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent value I got this tent due to the size/weight/value considerations. Like everyone else mentions, the poles are garbage. I replaced them with aluminum which helped. The issues is 60% low quality poles, and 40% design. The degree of the front and back arch are too much to ask for any poles. I bent my aluminum poles the first time out also but at least they do not break. All in all, if you can live with replacing the poles, possibly regularly, its a good tent. I slept warmly in the low 30's temps. The small size of this tent helps locks in body heat I think.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy! I got this tent intending to use it in Arizona for 2 weeks. I am glad i tried it out closer to home! I set up the tent for the FIRST time at a campsite, put my pack in it, and me and my doughter went for a short hike. By the time I got back, BOTH poles had snapped at the apex of the roof of the tent! My kid's $10 pop-tent was sturdier! I know how to set up one-man tents- I hiked for 13 days around Isle Royal and the ent I had then never failed me. I have never even seen a tent pole snap. There were no other campers there, either, so no one came by and just broke it. Terrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent tent- with drawbacks This tent did work well. I used for my trip to the Pictured Rocks on Lake Superior, the Manitee River trail, and casual camping. The drawbacks to this particular tent is that it is extremely cramped. I'm 6'4" and it was quite difficult to position yourself and getting in and out of the tent. The quick release zipper on the tent roof was quite nice. What really disappointed me with this tent is that Eureka does NOT make replacement poles for this tent. The front pole snapped on me while in the middle of a hike trip, which just lead to a miserable experience. This tent did a good job of what was required of it. I wish Eureka would have the foresight to make replacement poles, but I guess that infringes on their ability to make a bigger profit of us suckers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great tent but horrible poles I've used my tent a total of 6 times in every season. The last time I used it a pole section splintered into 6 different pieces longways. Love the tent just wish the poles weren't so inferior.

What is the floor material for this tent? Does it have a built-in footprint or does it have a fabric floor?

Asked by: Goopasaurus Rex
It has a waterproof floor but it is thin, I use a tarp under it to protect it from rocks and stuff. A 6x8 tarp folded in half works perfect for a ground cloth.

is this a free standing tent?

Asked by: kent
This is not a free standing tent, it needs at least 4 pegs to stand. I have had this tent for a year and really like it but you do need to peg it out.

From photo (as a novice camper) it is hard to discern how to enter this tent. Through the door or through the top with the zipper. Looking for a backpacking tent for my grandson to use on his outings with a scout troop in GA. Is there room for his back...

From photo (as a novice camper) it is hard to discern how to enter this tent. Through the door or through the top with the zipper. Looking for a backpacking tent for my grandson to use on his outings with a scout troop in GA. Is there room for his backpack in there? He is a big boy at 5'6", 140 #, and only 13.

How wide is the floor? I'm a big guy with wide shoulders.

Asked by: Tom
The floor is 32 inches wide. I am 6'2" and weigh 210 lbs with pretty wide shoulders too. I fit in this tent easily and actually have enough room to roll over.

Does this also have a rain fly?

Asked by: Florida_Camper
They show it set up and not set up in the photographs. Its the yellow top, you can roll it back and tuck it in the bridge to remove it.
