    EUREKA! Copper Canyon 4 – 4 Person Tent

    • Sleeps 4
    • Free standing design is easy to set up
    • Main fly and floor seams are factory taped for weather protection

    The EUREKA! Copper Canyon 4 – 4 Person Tent offers a clean and spartan design. It’s an upright, high quality family tent, and its tall straight walls creates a nice family area, which maximizes the space and will make for a comfortable trip. Weighing 22.2 lbs, this tent is best used to bring in the car for non-extreme family camping trips, and not on long hikes.

    Factory sealed floor and fly seams will keep you dry in summer storms, but some users have noted that the bottom fabric is the same as the rest of the tent, so a footprint is definitely recommended. The hybrid steel/fiberglass frame is sturdy and reliable, and gives solid frame support. It consist of heavy fiberglass rods in the top and steel on the side, and is praised by users who contrast it to the flimsy breakable rods found in cheap tents. For the price, Eureka definitely offers excellent quality and materials, and this is the best 6 person tent you can get for your money.

    • Spacious 6’6″ ceiling height provides walk-around comfort
    • Two large D-shaped doors (front and back) with #10 YKK zippers

Tent Buyer’s Guide

There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the best tent for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your best tents experience.

Poles: The vast majority of good backpacking tents use aluminum poles, which are strong, light, and easy to replace. Fiberglass poles are found on inexpensive, light-duty tents; they’re cheaper, heavier, and less durable. Carbon Fiber poles are found on ultra-high-end tents; they’re super-light and super-strong, but not as durable as aluminum.

Doors: A tent with just one door is lighter than a two door tent, but causes people to crawl over each other to get in and out. Two doors really boost the comfort/livability factor of a tent, especially when each door is protected by its own vestibule, allowing each camper to have their own storage space.

Keep these terms in mind when comparing prices and features to find the Best Tents!
