Shopping guide for the Eureka Apex 2XT Two-Person Tent

This shopping guide for the Eureka Apex 2XT, some reviews seem to confuse which tent is being discussed. The 2XT features a full rain fly with vestibules that are enclosed. The Apex 2 has a half rain fly and open vestibules.

I had read quite a number of the reviews for this outdoor tents, here and in other areas, and thought I understood (and could live with) a number of the drawbacks, but in use I could not.

The positives:

This is a very easy to setup tent, it really only takes several minutes. Assemble the two poles, place one end of each into a pocket in the corner of the tent, insert a pin from an opposing corner into the other end of the pole, then fasten the center point of the tent to the two poles (a loop of material and a dogbone shaped piece of plastic accomplishes this) and finish by attaching the clips from the edges of the tent to the poles. Beautiful.

Figure out which way the fly gets oriented, drape it too much and secure the clips at the lower corners. Some extra velcro further secures it to the tent poles, and then stake out the vestibule. Again, very easy.

The tent is pretty roomy, and provided you are using standard sleeping pads you ought to have no difficulty being comfortable with two people and minimal gear. Use an inflatable twin size air mattresses, and it's also definitely a one person tent.

I used the tent in a light rain, and left it setup in a very heavy rain, and I did not notice any leakage inside of the tent.

The negatives:

As others have noted, if you are inside, the zipper for the closed vestibule is quite a distance off. I am average height (just under 5'10")and I would have to lean way out or squat in the vestibule area to open the fly. Either way my back came into contact with the fly material and was soaked, either by the rain that had fallen, or by the morning dew seeping through the fly. I can not stress enough how annoying this is. If the ground is wet or muddy due to rain, you're going to get wet or muddy.

Even if you are opening the vestibule externally and the fly is wet, water will run down the fly and into the tent unless you are extremely careful.

I believe that every tent with an enlosed vestibule has related issues. I have been observing different designs when I go camping, and other than having a shorter reach to the zipper, decreasing the vestibule size, I have not seen any real differences. I was thinking of resigning myself to this, and perhaps attaching a mini-blind wand to the zipper to ease the reach when I noticed some thing else.

At the end of the vestibule you will find there's snap beyond the zipper. After the rain, I set the tent up in my garage to dry and air out. I could not get this snap to close and noticed that it had actually rusted a bit. I am dumbfounded that they did not use a stainless steel snap. At this point I decided I would return the tent.

I really do like a lot about this tent, the simplicity setup, the dimension, weight, and the price, but the vestibule issue is simply too much.
