    Quick set-ups—easy sleeping.

    Built for backpacking, the Eureka Spitfire 2 Tent is a solid 2-Person, 3-Season tent that won't break the bank. Ample ventilation, a durable PU-treated rain fly, and a 75-denier polyester floor all make for a comfortable night's sleep. Lightweight aluminum poles keep the tent's trail weight down, and the hoop-style design makes set-up super easy. Stow your nighttime essentials in the internal pockets, and answer nature's call throughout the night from one of the two doors without waking up your partner.

    Perfect for my needs

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The reason I picked this tent was that it was not the standard square dome that you can get at most big box stores that means a lot when you are trying to find your tent among a small village of tents. I was looking for a 1 person tent because the main use of the tent is to go camping with scouts and would be usually sleeping by myself. My wife said that she would like to go couple camping every now and then and that swayed me to the 2 person tent. Let me tell you why I picked this tent.

    First I wanted to be able to sit up in the tent so if I was caught in nasty weather I was not spending the whole time laying down. The spit fire 2 has more head room then any other tent in its price range. Another big selling point was the weight of the tent. I wanted one that could be a backpacking tent also. At 5 lbs it is heavy for 1 person but I see this mainly as a car camping or short trip tent. The other nice features I appreciate are the zipper for venting the tent from inside. This zipper can also be used for hanging a light on it.
    The unconventional shape also makes sure that you have little nooks to stash necessities close by without impeding the sleeping area.
    I'm 6'4" and finding a tent that fits me is really hard. The Spitfire 2 has like 9 feet of length so I don't feel squished at all.
    A door on both sides means that there is more flexibility in setup and partners aren't waking each other up for middle of the night emergencies.
    I really like this color of tent because it can be seen from quite a distance away. This means a lot when I'm out with young scouts that will need to find my tent in times of need.

    The biggest downside of the tent is the having to stake it down to set it up. When I first got it I set up in the living room and used the couch legs as anchors. I believe it took less than 10 mins to setup even when I didn't know what to do. Now it goes up much quicker.
    I got around the having to be staked down by getting some snow/sand anchors. I haven't tried the snow anchors yet but am looking for an opportunity to try them out.
    Also I wish there was a footprint for this tent but for now it works and I'll make one for it later.

    In summary I really enjoy this tent. It is my personal portable mansion. It is the perfect blend of weight, price and features that I was looking for in a tent.

    Great tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This tent is great. It sets up quick and easy and has big mesh windows which is perfect when you have a beautiful starry night on the trail. It isn't freestanding which is a con and it is a little on the heavy side and doesn't pack down very small. For the price it is really worth it and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend it and am very happy with my purchase.

    Nice little thing.

    Great lightweight and small tent. It set up very easily. It doesn't have too much room, but works great for 2 people. It isn't freestanding, though. That's one thing I would change. It kept light rain out and condensation. There are no vestibules though and that's another thing to consider.

    Great Tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Have used this tent over hundreds of miles on the trail, ranging from desert to mountains. This tent is durable, spacious, and reliable and I will replace it with another Spitfire 2 when it finally bites the dust! It has kept me dry in raging downpours with heavy hail in the mountains outside Santa Fe and has solidly endured 55+ mph winds in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma. While unconventional in fly design, I can fit my 70L pack under the fly on its side, which is good enough (so can my tentmate). The headroom is very adequate and only an NBA player is going to complain about the length. Two campers can sleep with plenty of toss-and-turn room in this tent. When split with another backpacker, it comes to just around 2-1/2 lbs each with a ground cloth. I have used it without a groundcloth many times and the floor is still intact and waterproof. I highly recommend this tent - IMO, you won't find a more spacious lighter tent with nearly the same amount of space without spending hundreds of dollars more.

    Will I need to buy a footprint separately for this tent?
