EUREKA Copper Canyon 6 – 6 Person family Tent Review
Eureka! Tent Company is a time-tested yet venerable and well-known outdoor gear company founded in Binghamton, New York in 1895. Their first line of production was custom tents, wagon covers, horse blankets and flags.
During World War II, Eureka was the leader in manufacturing all-purpose tents for the army. The tents were used as hospital tents, barracks and mess halls. A the war ended, they consolidated their all factories to one big factory and started manufacturing canvas products and a supplied industrial canvas and other textiles. Eureka started distributing its products through sporting good stores, Army and Navy stores, and department stores throughout the US and in number of other foreign countries.
Eureka! Company currently produces military tents, direct-to-rental-service party and event tents.
Eureka! ‘s copper canyon series tents come as 4, 5, 6, 8, 12 person versions. In this article we will be reviewing the copper canyon 6 person tent.
Eureka! Copper canyon 6 person family tent features a 10’ x 10’ sleeping area making it approximately 100 square foot of roomy space for 6 campers. The center height of 7’ makes the tent standout from other 6 person tents, making this tent the “tent for tall people”!
What I like about the Eureka! Copper canyon most is the excellent design of the tent. The sides are almost straightly designed , the rain covers for the 3 large windows and door zip from the inside and the poles are really robust even the fiberglass ones across the top. The zippered power port is a great design for connecting into an electrical box.
The tent has one large D style door and 4 windows, with the feature that Eureka! Names as “Quick Stash”. This feature stows window flap easily without loops or toggles.
The other great thing about this tent is that its ability to handle high winds, rain and thunderstorms really good. The tent is weather protected with a factory taped main fly and floor seams. The tent has a Bathtub floor, which up sides of tent, protecting against splashing and standing water. So if you want to stay dry, Eureka! Copper canyon is the choice.
Setting up the tent is easy and fast, while the poles are attached to the tent body via pin and ring. Also the combination of clips and sleeves makes the setup easier.
Inside the tent there are 2 mesh gear pockets for internal storage, clothes line loops and flashlight loop. These pockets are vrery useful, when you want to have something close to hand and easy to reach.
The tent weight only 23 lbs, surprisingly lighter for such a large tent. It’s also to be noted that the tent fits easily and properly in its bag.
As you may have gathered by now, I am highly impressed with this tent unlike some of the other tents I have reviewed on this web site so far. Upon viewing this knife, three features that immediately stand out to me are the excellent design specially with the „tent for tall people“ feature, weather protection features, and the low price tag.
- Super Comfortable, lots of space
- “Tent for tall people”
- Stay dry in downpours
- Appealing low price tag
