The Eureka K-2 XT Tent: 3-Person 4-Season is a easy-to-use, ventilated, and durable option that can withstand heavy rains, winds, and snow. Despite being expensive, heavy, and a little snug for 3 people, this is a great tent to use during inclement weather when sharing the weight-load with 2 or 3 others. This tent may be expensive for Eureka, but for a rugged, warm, and easy-to-set-up option, we think the price and weight are ‘outweighed’ by the positives.
