Don't head into the backcountry without a solid shelter like the Eureka Apex 2XT Tent.

Eureka made the economical and spacious Apex 2XT Tent for kicking back after a long day on the trail. The sleeve/clip combo makes for quick setup, and the fly attaches in mere seconds. Two large drop doors allow easy entries and exits without stepping on your partner or gear. Eureka also added internal pockets for organization and a 13.4sq foot vestibule to keep your boots out of the rain. The Apex 2XT Tent's fiberglass poles shave weight to keep your pack light.

Wonderful little backpacking tent

Just got back from a weekend trip into baxter state park with this tent, it poured all weekend, setup for it even in the pouring rain is quick, we were able to pile all of our gear (2 4.5k packs) in the vestibules, everything stayed dry in the high wind and pouring rain, I was really impressed actually, overall we got 4 inches of rain, and none of it was in the tent. I do wish the vestibule zipper was a little easier to access from the inside of the tent, and aluminum poles would be a godsend though this wasnt the straw that broke my back it would be a good bit lighter and easier to pack with Aluminum poles, It could use about 6 inches more width too but it was certainly comfortable enough for the 2 of us, . Very happy with this purchase.

Where can I get the aluminum poles for this tent? I would like to replace those fiberglass. Thanks.

Does this tent need to be seam sealed?

Does this tent need to be seam sealed?

Responded on

Really? Mine is all sealed, I got it 2 weeks ago, and its all taped and sealed. We got 4 inches of rain this weekend up here, and we were dry as a bone in this tent.

by the look of the one side it looks mesh? Is that additional to the two doors? compare with north face rock???

Responded on

Yes, it's one wall of mesh (and ceiling apex), two mesh doors, one non-mesh wall. It appears to have more mesh than the pre-2009 version of The North Face Rock, which had mesh on the upper half x 3 sides only. The 2009 TNF Rock has more mesh overall, as the doors and door panels are all mesh in addition to the mesh wall.

Can two people fit comfortably with their gear in the tent?

Responded on

You're gonna have to put a lot of your gear in the vestibule, but yeah.

Responded on

The dimensions for my tent are almost the same as this tent and my wife and I sleep comfortably with a little wiggle room.

IsAre the doors on this tent strictly mesh?...

IsAre the doors on this tent strictly mesh? Or do they have a weatherproof door you can zip up behind it like the apex has?

Responded on

yes the doors are just mesh, no extra door. The vestibule is meant to be the extra door on this tent.

great tent, great value

I am very happy with my 2XT. It is big enough for 2 and has 2 doors and 2 vestibules so each person has a place for their pack and you can get in and out without disturbing the other person. I have camped in a couple of brutal Texas thunderstorms in the tent and it has always been dry and stable in the wind. My only real complaint with the Apex 2XT is that the zippers on the vestibule doors are only accessible from the outside, so to close up the tent you have to lay down in the vestibule and reach under the fly to close the zipper the last few inches. The build quality is very good and it is light enough for hiking, but still roomy enough for comfy car camping.

Why do the floor space dimensions listed...

Why do the floor space dimensions listed here not match up with other websites and their listed dimensions of 90'' by 59''? This is a huge discrepancy in length for me, in particular, because I am 6'7''

Responded on

The dimensions listed here are 89x59in. That's actually not a "huge discrepancy" from 90x59in. At 6'7" you are 79" tall; therefore, you will have either 10"-11" of space between you and the walls. The dimensions, as listed on Eureka!'s website are 7'5"x4'11" (89x59in).The dimensions of the Apex 2, not the Apex 2XT, are 7'2"x4'11" (83x59in).

4.5 Stars for this backpacker tent

I picked up this tent last summer and have been able to test it out a few times since then on backpacking trips. The total weight w/rain fly is only about 6lbs - pretty good for a 2 person tent. My boyfriend had no problems with the length -- he's 6'3" -- so if you're tall, this might be just the tent for you. I'm 5'4" and am able to store extra clothes by my feet for those "just in case it gets cold" nights. The doors on both sides make it quick easy in & out for either person, and the zippers work well. Set-up time is 5 minutes or less by yourself (I haven't officially timed it yet), which is made easy by the sleeves you insert the poles into before you stand it up. Bright yellow color is a plus if you're out canoeing and trying to find your campsite again at dusk, however if you're trying to blend in with the scenery this is probably not the tent for you. The extra vestibule space created by the rain fly is plenty sufficient to store a pack under it and keep it dry. Only complaint I have about the rain fly is the zippers only zip from top to bottom. It's a bit of a stretch to reach from inside the tent to pull the zipper all the way down on the rain fly. It did, however, function perfectly well for keeping out the rain.

hey i am buying a tent for the first time......

Have you had a look at the North Face Tadpole? This is a great backpacking 2 person tent which packs very small.First determine your usage & how large a tent you want, e.g. the number of persons. Here's more to choose from:

Great Tent, Recommend it

Outstanding tent. Eureka's quality of construction has stayed great since I purchased my first tent 28 years ago which by the way I still have. Bought this one for my daughter's first packing tent and she put it straight up with no problems. Would recommend it.
