Product Description

The Forte SQ 2XT is unmatched in strength and stability. This side entry tent is created by utilizing our proprietary Sequoia A-Frame plus spreader pole configuration. The DAC poles used enforce the durability in this frame with ridge pole extensions for support. A large triangle door with Hi/Low venting offers ease of access and the zippered window in door opens for excellent visibility and controlled ventilation. The fly- creating primary vestibule can be configured in multiple ways and the secondary vestibule can be accessed by the rainbow pass-thru door in the tent body. A fly-only lite-set option will create a versitle liteweight yet spacious shelter.

The Forte SQ 2XT from Eureka is a 3-season, side entry tent of unmatched strength and stability thanks to its proprietary Sequoia A-frame + spreader pole configuration. Lightweight and efficient, the Forte SQ 2XT offers ample interior space for two full-sized adults to sleep comfortably in the backcountry. Equipped with a large front vestibule and a smaller rear vestibule accessible via a rear vent, the tent provides a dry place to keep your pack, without crowding your sleeping space. Thanks to a bathtub floor that protects against splashing and standing water as well as a full-coverage rainfly, the Forte SQ 2XT will keep you dry in even the heaviest downpours. The tent's new extended ridgepole provides more interior space with a generous 3-foot+ ceiling height and multiple vents, windows, and a large door keep the air fresh. Finally, Eureka's standard pin-and-ring, pole-to-body connection is fast and reliable, for simple and hassle free setup.

The Forte SQ 2XT offers unmatched strength and stability with the proprietary Sequoia A-frame + spreader pole configuration.
  • SQ Hub: The proprietary SQ hub offers unmatched strength and optimum angles to maximize internal space inside the tent for exceptional livability.
  • Mid-Span Pole Spreader: The mid-span ridgepole spreader bar accentuates the curves in the tent body, adding internal volume to the A-frame.
  • Front and Rear Vestibules: The vestibules provide extra protected-space to store gear without sacrificing room within the tent. The rear vestibule is easily accessible through a rainbow zip in the back wall of the tent.
  • Interior Pockets: 4 interior storage pockets keep essentials organized and close at hand within the tent.
  • Access and Ventilation: One large side-entry door offers easy tent access while 4 vents and 2 windows keep the air moving and fresh. All entry points are covered with no-see-um mesh for optimum insect protection.
  • Bathtub Floor: The tent's tensioned, perimeter seam bathtub floor wraps up sides of tent, protecting against splashing and standing water to keep your tent floor dry even in heavy rain.

This is the first new tent I've bought in roughly 12 years. I did quite a bit of backpacking when I was younger and have used all different brands of tents (Kelty, Mountain Hardware, Eureka, REI) my first tent was a Eureka! and I still have it. If I had it with me when I needed a tent I probably would have just used it instead of buying a new one. I'll preface my review with the intended use of the new tent: motorcycle camping, not backpacking. I used the tent on a 10 day ride around the Adriatic sea, from Greece, north through Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia Austria and Italy. It performed very well, with no protection or comfort issues, just functionality quirks and packaging that ended up being tiresome.

This tent sounded really good to me, similar to the Timberline design, which I had used extensively as a Boy Scout though never owned. That tent is very strong and roomy, though not as compact because of the pole structure and involves a few more steps when setting up. I thought this one would be a little better and it was for the most part, but in other areas it was lacking. As a motorcycle camper I didn't really fuss over weight but packablitiy either for a backpack or motorcycle is important to consider.

The tent itself packs up small
The XT version has a full rain fly that has two vestibules
Roomy interior thanks to the spreader bar, making it possible to be a less tight two person tent if you're keeping it light on a backpacking trip.

The poles design tried to improved over the timberline, but fell short in my opinion. Not being able to remove the joints making up the A-bars adds to bulk and complicates storage. They just get in the way and become annoying.

I bought this tent about 5 years ago now for a field course and was the first tent of my own. Very pleased with it, rigid frame, and with the full fly on it presents a shape resembling a geometric turtle. I had it set up during a storm that blew about 40 mph straight line winds and it was solid with all guy lines out. Comes with 4 guy lines attached but you certainly can attach more. Definitely get better stakes... at least 5 years ago it came with thin steel stakes that just don't offer enough hold in anything but calm conditions. The little picture I see as I write this review shows the tent with a partially enclosed frontal vestibule, the sq 2xt I have is a full coverage up front with a zippered door you can roll back and a small vestibule in the rear that is accessible through a half circle zipper on the rear wall of the tent. Overall it's an excellent tent, love the modified A-frame with the spreader bar. Highly recommended! I will be using it again for the first time in 2 years over labor day weekend hiking the ERL with my mother. Will post an edit afterwards as well.

The Eureka Forte XT Tent in a small 2 man Tent.. It is great for a one man tent with one door. I used this Tent in Yellowstone park over the weekend and it held up to the Rocky Mountain Afternoon Thunder storms. Did not leak out of the bag, I agree with others that the pole hubs and poles are cumbersome. This is not a light tent, but its great for a Motorcycle with saddle bags. I would recommend this tent to anyone that wants a Large one person tent but not for two people, especially if you are over 6 foot and 200 pounds like me. The Fly is full coverage, and the poles are sturdy and plenty places to stake her down in a storm, It does not come with Footprint .Overall this is a great tent if you can buy it for under $120.00

This tent is as good as my MSR tent, but it is heavier....
