    Comments about Eureka Solitaire Tent:

    Bought this for my first year Boy Scout on his first real backpacking trip. I was looking for a lightweight tent that is easy for a 12 year old to set up. We set it up in the house with no issues. We set it up and camped one night in the mountains. Whe we took the tent down, we noticed one of the tent poles was already cracked, and the other was bent at the metal coupler, and did not straignten out. The tent was sent back to the manufacturer, and we're waiting for a resolution. The poles do seem very flimsy, and hopefully this won't be a recurring problem. Overall, it does seem like a nice tent.

          Pros

          • Can Sit Up
          • Difficult To Set Up
          • Fiberglass Poles Break

          Best Uses

            Comments about Eureka Solitaire Tent:

            If you need a 1 person tent spend the extra and buy a Eureka Spitfire 1. For the extra money, and it isnt that much more, you get enough room to sit up, poles that wont break and room to bring your pack in the tent.. That said if the only care in the world is how small it packs then this is it. Dont expect the poles to last long although Eureka is great at supporting their gear..

                There's barely enough room for yourself. Moving around was difficult. Laying in this tent was like laying in an MRI machine. I felt mummified! Good luck trying to lay out your sleeping bag in the tent!

                    Yes, the poles are cheap and do not last long. They lasted me for about 400 miles of backpacking. If you want it to last, definitely find something with aluminum poles.
