Eureka Alpenlite 2XT Tent: 2-Person 4-Season


Product Details

Most four-season tents can get you through a winter storm, but many of them come with vertebrae-crushing poundage, and almost all of them come with a budget-busting price tag ... except the Eureka! Alpenlite 2-Person, 4-Season Tent. This versatile expedition shelter has the features, technology, and bomber construction to stand toe-to-toe with the big guns, but its relatively low weight and even more impressive price point make it a no-brainer for budget-minded go-getters. Two roof vents, four wall vents, and a vestibule vent means that it's versatile enough to consider using year round.

Price : $ 369.9

Winter Tents Checklist

Quality? Thankfully, most four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
Don't Get Too Big! Due to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number of people.
Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it), will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes, it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
Convertible Tents? There are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season use.
If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
