About Eureka
Though the exact year is unknown, Eureka's long history begins prior to 1895 in Binghamton, New York, where the company still resides today. Then known as the Eureka Tent & Awning Company, its first wares were canvas products--most notably, Conestoga wagon covers and horse blankets for nineteenth century American frontiersmen--as well as American flags, store awnings, and camping tents.

The company increased production of its custom canvas products locally throughout the 1930s, and in the 1940s, with the advent of World War II and the increased demand for hospital ward tents, Eureka expanded operations and began shipping tents worldwide. Ultimately, upon the post-war return of the GIs and the resultant housing shortage, Eureka turned its attention to the home front during the 1950s by supplying awnings for the multitude of mobile homes that were purchased.

In 1960, Eureka's new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was used in a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented to summit Mt. Everest only six years earlier. In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, with more than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below -20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.

For backpackers and families, Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s. Truly the first StormShield design, this completely self-supporting and lightweight backpacking tent became one of the most popular tents the entire industry. Eureka tents have also traveled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women's Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and American woman in 1986 and 1988. In recent history, tents specially designed and donated by Eureka sheltered Eric Simonson and his team on two historic research expeditions to Mount Everest, this time in a quest for truth regarding the 1924 attempted summit of early English explorers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine.

I shopped for months before I bought this tent, and I have few regrets. Our first outing, the overnight thunderstorm and winds were epic in their proportions: 2 inches of rain blew through the forest within 3 hrs. Here in Florida, that's standard issue for summertime. I had sealed the fly seams, and the rain didn't penetrate our tent. But we weren't entirely dry, and here's the "caveat:" Eureka says you can "leave the window and door open" during rain because of the door/window "hooded fly." Don't do it if the rain is blowing because it will blow *under* the hood, through the no-see-um mesh, and dampen your sleeping bag.

Don't get me wrong: The rain penetration was not due to any manufacturer's defect; on the contrary--I opened the door and window zippers just a little for ventilation (it was 80 degrees during the storm). But I paid the price.

Buy this reasonably priced, roomy, features-laden tent and enjoy it as we have. Just don't open the window or door zippers during a heavy storm.

I bought the Eureka Tentragon 9 the summer of 2006 to go camping at the Outer Banks in North Carolina with my daughter. We found it easy to set up with very large windows, easy zippers and excellent in the rain and wind. The first night we had a huge thunderstorm and it withstood strong winds and heavy rain without any leaking. I have had many tents in the past and found this one "the best". Even my daughter mentioned how great this tent was. I would highly recommend it.

Verified Purchase
In the three weeks I've owned this tent, I have tested it three nights, once under heavy rain, and it did not leak. I like the high quality of the tent as well. Seems like a good balance of features and cost.

Because the poles are so long, it is tricky (but not impossible) to set up without help. However, with two people, it was a snap. I doubt anyone's going to go camping alone in a 9 x 9 tent anyway!

We are pretty minimalist campers, but 4 people and a dog, we needed at least something bigger than the 3 person backpacking tent we have.

From the pictures it looks as though you have great rain-fly coverage- but the back window is pretty exposed. Why this was done- i have no idea. the front rain fly extension works well- WHY not provide a little bit on the back? From the look of the front, and the aggressive overhanging front fly wing, you'd think it would be nice and covered on the back, it's not.

This is definitely a warm weather tent. the 2 sides are about 70% mesh- the ceiling is also mesh providing good stargazing. (i dont know why anyone would say this has poor ventilation, they must be reviewing the wrong tent) It's almost ALL ventilation- which comes across as a negative in a cold downpour.

After a 3 night trip- maybe 3 hours of light rain and a little wind picking up at night, nothing crazy- had a seam stress - (mesh separated from the seam). Another stress-rub tear adjacent to the pole.

n. I was expecting another great Eureka experience, only to be disappointed with another big corporate sell-out. Ok for light camping, but if you want a real tent, I guess I will keep on looking. I had a timberline for 20 years Never had a stress tear or seam separation.

If I was the Eureka! product manager I'd be trying to produce something awesome instead of cutting costs. there are plenty of cheap tents, and there is a demand for REAL quality. You are Eureka! prove to the world that you care about making great tents. If that's not their objective, then they need to be fired.

I just got back from a weekend of camping in Northern Minnesota, and the Eureka tent passed with flying colors---so far. As an avid camper I've learned over the years there are several things to look for in a tent when "car camping". First, and most importantly does it hold up to the elements. Second, design and ease of setup. Third, quality and craftsmanship. Lastly, cost of the product. I have not experienced rain in the tent so far, which is one of the reasons why I did not give it 5 stars. I can't honestly say whether the tent holds up in the rain or not. I am disappointed that Eureka did not include seam sealer with the tent. I enjoy camping in early spring and late fall, and the tent's design does a great job of retaining heat..temps got down in the mid 30's on this last trip..and my wife and I stayed warm. Another reason I purchased the tent...ease of setup. If you notice there are no sleeves to deal with. 2 poles and clips for the main body and 2 smaller poles for the rainfly. Setup took about 5 minutes to include the rainfly(this is fantastic for a larger tent). There are 2 pockets inside, one on each side to stow gear and a net that hangs from the ceiling. This came in handy as well, but it takes up much of the headroom. There is also plenty of no-see-um mesh which provides decent airflow. The rainfly extends in front which adds some protection for shoes but a vestibule area would be a great add-on, another reason I did not give this tent 5 stars. The zippers worked fine..no problems there. I would also like to see aluminum poles to increase tent strength, the poles are 11 mm fiberglass. The last point I would like to add is cost. I bought this tent on Amazon to include free shipping for $100.00. I couldn't find it cheaper any where else on line, including Ebay..most sites go for $140-$180 and up. Considering the cost this is a great buy....so far..I'll see how it does in the rain.
