I bought ten of these tents for my Boyscout troop. We do a lot of backpacking and these tents fit all of our requirements; lightweight, 2 vestibules for gear storage, and good quality. We took them out on the first trip last weekend. All the boys really liked them. They set up easily, have a decent amount of room for 2 youth, and are well made.
Nice tent, nothing elaborate, weight is more like 8.5 lbs rather than 6.5 lbs as advertised by all the experts, big difference if using for back packing dont think they include the poles and the flimsey pegs as part of the weight.
Great tent! The tent was a breeze to set up by myself. It held up well to the freezing rain and wind on its maiden voyage. And had plenty of room. Now as it being a "2" man tent... I'm a fat guy at 5'11 260 and if there wasn't any gear in the tent then you could put another smaller adult in there. This is nothing new to tents, their capacity is usually rated off of only people and not gear in the tent, so no surprise. But for those unfamiliar with the outdoors, if you're car camping with a ton of stuff, you can't keep all of that in the tent and still sleep people in it. Service from ACK was great. Ordering was easy, and it was at my house the very next day! I will continue ordering from ACK with full confidence of their service.
I love this tent. I have the first tend with 1 vestibule. The orange color is great as it is darker. I can get an extra hour of sleep. The loft is a big help to keep track of small items I'm bound to lose. Eureka makes great tents.
