Eureka! Survivor 2 Backpacking Tent

This was my first experience with using a Eureka! product, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

I was slightly familiar with the name when I purchased this tent, but the main reason I made the purchase was simply that it seemed to fit my needs at a reasonable price.

Best Used:

This is a two person tent. It’s for that reason that this tent is a great option for backpackers simply looking for some extra interior room. This could be helpful if you enjoy rolling around in your tent, if you need extra space for an adventure pup, or, of course, if you have two people that plan on sleeping in the same tent.

If you are backpacking with two full grown adults the fact that there is only one vestibule might pose a bit of a problem. Nevermind having to crawl over each other to get out – you won’t really have enough room for both packs.

On the upside, you can split the weight between the packs and only have to tote around about 2 pounds per person. Not ultra lightweight, but not bad!

Final Thoughts:

If you’re looking for a two-person tent to start out with (that isn’t hundreds of dollars) this would be a good option, but if you plan on regularly backpacking with two adults you should consider something with 2 vestibules.

This tent is best used by backpackers that want extra room and don’t mind the extra weight they carry for it. Likewise, if you’re traveling with a dog or child this is a great option.


Happy trails!
