Doing a lot of three-season camping mixed with an occasional winter expedition and the requirements are wind and weather protection then the newer four season tents are probably what is needed. Eureka or Sierra Designs make a great four season tent. These tents are indispensable once own you’ll wonder what you ever did with out it. These tents can be used in warm months or can be used in heavy winds, rain, and even in snow.
Four-season tents offer the most versatility in any season. These features include vestibules, rainflys and many ventilation points which often aren’t included in the three-season counterparts in an effort to save weight and cost. Eureka’s four season tents offers it all. They are quick to set up and provide good stability with a three or four-pole frame and shock corded poles and clip attachments. The variable tension post and grommet set ups for multiple adjustments are very helpful in different wind speeds. Made from a durable fabric with a waterproof coating and a bathtub floor, water cannot seep in. It also has a UV and cold resistant window on the front vestibule which helps to brighten the area for increased light on those inclement weather days. Eureka also has patented high/low venting doors and bottom venting flys to provide superior air flow in any type of weather.
“I love this tent. I have used it in 85 degree weather, a cold driving rainstorm, and a blizzard. In each case this tent was comfortable, dry and had great airflow. There are lighter backpacking tents out there, but for the money you can’t beat this tent. I definitely recommend it.” wrote Kurt Anderson, owner of a Eureka Alpenlite XT. One of the best aspects of this tent is the zippered roof vent this affords the opportunity to stargaze or just to control the temperature inside the tent.
With over 100 years of tent-making experience Eureka tents have traveled as part of many historic expeditions, including all the first American ascents of Mt. Everest. They put that same quality into all their tents. "The best tent for the money" says Diane Floyd speaking of the Eureka K 2XT four season tent.
ProudFoote Campers Outlet is a privately owned online camping equipment store. This store has been in business for a little over a year and are pleased to be offering the new line of Eureka and Sierra Design four season camping tents.
