Technical Details


Product Description

Most four-season tents can get you through a winter storm, but many of them come with vertebrae-crushing poundage, and almost all of them come with a budget-busting price tag ... except the Eureka! Alpenlite 2-Person, 4-Season Tent. This versatile expedition shelter has the features, technology, and bomber construction to stand toe-to-toe with the big guns, but its relatively low weight and even more impressive price point make it a no-brainer for budget-minded go-getters. Two roof vents, four wall vents, and a vestibule vent means that it's versatile enough to consider using year round.

For the past 8 years...this is my go-to tent for solo/winter trips. I don't think there's a better 2-person/4-season tent for the money! This tent (like my Timberlines) is free-standing which means I can pitch the tent and then move it around until I find just the right spot before staking the guylines and vestibules. I cannot say enough about the features. Double vestibules for gear, lots of extra vents that can zipped closed or left open depending on weather conditions and lots of accessory pockets to keep small items off the floor. The tent is rated for 2 people but you won't have room for much gear other than bedrolls. I use it most for solo trips and then the pack and the dog both fit, too! When I need more space...I use my K-2XT (a 3-person winter camping palace)...see my review for more on that one!

I finally got the opportunity to use this tent in some colder weather along the California Central Coast. Although it doesn't snow there, it can get really cold when that wind comes across the ocean. What I really liked about this tent was the complete control you have to manage your air flow, moisture and ventilation. I have used 3 season tent in similar conditions and just froze. With this tent you have the option to opening your screened venting from any side in addition to the ceiling- very nice.

First you notice about this tent is that it feels like quality. The rain fly is thick and feels like it could withstand a good down pour and strong winds. The rest of the tent follow suit noticeable quality and ruggedness. Having said that- a lot of this quality also translates into weight. This did not matter to me since I was motorcycle camping. But, it will also take up a little more room as it will not pack up "small". This did matter to me, but I felt it was worth the sacrifice.

Couple of items that might also be of interest. One of which is that the vestibule is not exactly cavernous. Especially when trying to get in and out of the tent. Once you are in for the night, you might load it up, but don't expect to have tons of room. A was ok with this since I did not need to store items like a backpack.

Another item is that this tent is a little cozy for 2 people- especially if you are also trying to store gear for both depending on use. The floor plan is not rectangular, which adds to the space dilemma. If for 2 people, It really looks like they designed this to be for mummy bags. Bottom line, I really see this as a fantastic one man tent with plenty room for your stuff inside and out. Otherwise, Eureka should have called it the honeymoon tent.

I received this tent on the third Friday in March. I immediately pitched it in the backyard for a little pre-backpacking weekend test run (my three and four year old boys love this!) Please note, the included instructions were very confusing. I ended up crumpling them and winging it. Without the instructions, the setup is a snap. All poles and parts are intuitively shaped and appear to be of very high quality. Start to finish in five minutes. Even quicker once you get the hang of it (staking one corner makes things much easier in the wind!)
Living in the mountains of Western North Carolina, we still see chilly overnight temperatures this time of year. Friday night was no exception. The temp hovered around freezing from midnight till dawn. With the two top vents and the front and back vents cracked, the boys and I were very cozy in our three-season sleeping bags. Halfway through the night, my older son had a fit of gas. The linger effect was very prolonged with the upper vents in the "cracked" position. Opening every vent as wide as possible and making howling eww! noises immediately remedied the situation. I suppose this is a testiment to the legendary ventilation properties of this tent...Coziness was re-achieved approximately ten minutes after returning the vents to the dangerous "cracked" position.
I have ordered a ground pad to place underneath the tent. I will list two reasons for my decision. First, the floor of the tent seems very thin. I worry that it could become damaged by rocks or sticks on the ground. The second reason for getting the ground pad is because I noticed some condensation beneath my sleeping bag when I awoke in the morning. It would be best described as a dampness. I guess it's possible that I had an accident while sleeping. It's been known to happen.

I've had this tent out a few times in snow storms and freezing temps and it held up great; shed the snow, handled the wind and stayed warm. You will get a good amount of condensation if you don't vent it a bit but it doesn't take long to figure out what it takes to stay warm and prevent condensation.

Both vestibules are smallish...I wonder why Eureka! bothered with the rear vestibule since you can only access it from the outside and it's only large enough for a pair of boots.

One of the door zipper stitching is beginning to come apart. Seems pretty shoddy for a tent in this price range that is only in it's second season of light use.

Would give it 3.5 stars if the ratings allowed it. Eureka! should bring the price down or the quality up if they want 5 star ratings on this tent IMHO.
