Spend the extra money on a Spitfire 1

    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!

        Comments about Eureka Solitaire Tent:

        I've now had this solitaire tent for 3 years and have used it in conditions varying from hot and humid to cold and rainy. I've not had any issues like some who mentioned flimsy quality, broken poles or that it is too cramped. Of course it's small.. but it's huge compared to a bivy bag, doesn't weigh much and packs very small. It also doesn't collect or drip nearly the condensation of a bivy.I give it 3 thumbs up for the value. Its 1/2 the cost of a cramped damp bivy bag.

            Good BP tent for the money. It is lightweight and simple to set up. The roof zipper is nice for an alternate entry but you can't use it when rain fly is on. It serves its purpose on my overnight trips. I am 5'11. I had just enough room. I could see a taller person feeling cramped in this tent. Really no room to store your pack. The poles are not the highest quality but you get what you pay for. Overall, the tent meets my needs without breaking the bank.

              My son & I got these as Christmas gifts to use on scout trips. A little difficult to insert & remove the poles. Long pole broke on my sons tent during the night on the second weekend of use. Eureka is replacing them. I've had no problems with condensation as long as the front flap is tied back, and the rain fly is pulled tight & off of the mesh top. Good, comfortable tent with poor quality poles. Unbeatable price at Campmor!

              The tent is definitely for only one person. It is a great tent if you are into having a tent that is small and light weight with no frills.
              It does collect condensation inside under the right conditions which means it doesn't have great ventalation when it is all zipped up which is great if it is cold out side because you are going to be warmer inside. I could tell the difference in temp. It is hard to get out of/get into because it is small. You can't sit up in the tent which makes moving around hard. I love the tent for what it is, a small light weight shelter.

                  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.
