Gear Talk / Tents
« on: September 27, 2006, 01:21:41 pm »
The tent I've used on many tours is The Eureka Backcountry 2. Freestanding and with a fly that is ownly an awning on the 2 longer sides which I prefer while bicycle touring. I like to be able to see out of my tent at all times. A full fly prevents seeing out when tenting in town parks or church yards, etc. I've backpacked over 3000 miles on the AT & found full fly coverage overkill 99.9% of the time. A freestanding tent is a must for bike touring in my opinion. The basic REI tent is very similar to the Eureka Backcountry 2.
