Familiarity: I've used it several times

I decided to surprise my wife with a family tent she'd been hinting on for a long time. The features of this Eureka where a great match in terms of what we were looking for, based on the positive reviews on this tent and my personal experience with another Eureka tent purchased some 20 years ago (still in service) I decided this was the one. While it was mid summer and out of stock many places, I was pleased Backcountry had it available to ship; as I've never had a problem with them in terms of price or shipping.
The tent is very roomy and robustly constructed. All seams throughout are taped; I went over the seams from the outside with sealer and had no issues on a week long camp trip this summer. The last evening of the trip it was a complete downpour / electrical storm...the tent didn't budge and stayed dry despite a significant amount of water that had run underneath it as we were camped on a slight incline. The pole layout is very easy to figure out, we practiced setup at home averaging 15 minutes from bag to staking.
It comes with a nice bag, but I ended up using a larger canvas duffle I had laying around...this tent is on the heavy side and found it more comfortable/easier to pack and carry that way.
