Summary: The Eureka Tetragon 5 two person tent is better than we expected. It was purchased as a gift for my son who is a Boy Scout. A couple of other boys in his troop have this tent, as well as the Scoutmaster's grandson, and they all recommended it. It is even larger than I expected, and perfect for a growing boy (or even me). Two can sleep in it as well. The hanging pockets are great for organizing and keeping up with important items.
Summary: I have now received three of these tents (Bought them for Christmas presents) and slept out in two of them on a 40 degree and a 20 degree night. The length is just enough for me at 6'4". The width is enough for two people and room to store some gear. I like the flexibility of the two small mesh pockets, one at each end which can be easily removed and relocated.
Summary: I chose this tent because I was downsizing from a much larger Eureka tent that I had used for years, but was too big for one person. This tent is the perfect size for one, but it would be very tight with two. It is very easy to set up, it literally goes up in minutes. I think it's great for summer camping, because of all the screen. The nights were in the 40's when I used it, and I would not use it in any colder temps, but that's just me.
Summary: This tent was everything I needed on my first backpacking trip... relatively low price, super lightweight, easy to put up with two or even just one person and kept us cool and dry during our 3 night hiking trip in the rainy tropics. Not sure how it would hold up in cold or windy conditions, but was well ventilated and stayed completely dry inside due to the well designed vents/windows and rain fly.
Summary: I own this little tent (paid more for it at an outdoors store). Have been very happy with the quality of Eureka tents in the past. The last one I had survived five treks to Canyonlands. Erected this tent my first day in southeastern Utah, at Kodachrome State Park. A great place to visit, by the way. I waterproofed the seams, as I always do in a new tent. Some kind of front came in, and the wind blew nearly constantly for two days.
Summary: My nephew and I bought this tent for a backpacking trip and it did not dissapoint. Not only is it lightweight, but it was plenty roomy for the two of us, and we're not lightweights. I am 5'8" 205lbs. and my nephew is 6'1" 240lbs. It's not unreasonable to suggest that Mom, Dad and two young children could make do with this tent.
Summary: Compact, easy to set up, nice size for two people. Threw the tent on the back of the motorcycle and went camping. Perfect for the two of us with extra room for the stuff we didn't want the animals to get outside. Sunny weekend, so no input as to waterproofing, but certainly an excellent fair weather shelter!
Summary: Trotted out for a 5 month trek of the Philippines with this tent as my primary sleeping arrangement. After sealing the seams (a must unless you want to get wet) it works like a dream. Quick to set up, stable, and roomy. I'm 6 feet tall and was able to stretch out as much as I wanted. Had room for me and my pack with room to spare. Easy to take down as well. Has zippered windows to let air in and little clips spotted around to hang various things. 5 stars all around.
Summary: I purchased this tent for times when I am solo camping. I'm 6'6" and needed something that I could stretch out in. This tent worked well, although I won't be inviting company in, unless they are small and friendly. For someone my size, it's definitely a solo tent. I had occasion to spend a week out camping just after the tent arrived, several days each in Joshua Tree and Death Valley.
