Gear Review: Eureka SunRiver and El Capitan tent

Review of the Eureka Suma 3-Person Tent

Review of theย Eureka Suma 2 Backpacking Tent – 2 Person


I really like this tent, so much so that I have it in a few sizes. I purchased this to upgrade my backcountry camping tent. It is light weight enough to use for both backpacking and canoe camping trips.

While this tent it small and lightweight, I have also found it to be sturdy. I have used it in very strong rain storms and high winds without an issue. No leaks either! It is also EASY to set up, I think we have it down to 5 minutes flat.

The one draw back is that I have noticed some condensation when used on hot summer nights. This can be improved with a footprint/tarp under the tent.

The two person tent is small, so we purchased the four person tent to use at the dropzone when we spend weekends skydiving. This version is roomy, allows for gear storage and we can almost stand up!

This tent is available in store and online.
