how does this tent compare to the msr stormkingI see the price is about half

Responded on

the eureka one is only three men and it has almost the same pole design. the msr one has 2 doors and the eureka has only 1 door and 1 vestibules, the eureka one has a window which is very nice to look threw when it is snowing and raining. the eureka tent has been used on mt. everestThe MSR Stormking is a five person tent, weighs 2 pounds more, & is $400 more expensive. The decision is all yours!(The comment about the doors and the vestibule is incorrect in this answer. The K2-xt has 2 doors and 2 vestibules - a large hooped one in the front, and a stake out one in the back. The doors are both the same - in fact, the tent body is symmetrical, the fly can be rotated 180.)The K2-XT has two doors and two vestibules actually. The larger one is pictured, the smaller is perfect for boots and like items.
