Then known as the Eureka Tent & Awning Company, its first wares werecanvas products--most notably, Conestoga wagon covers and horse blankets for nineteenth century Americanfrontiersmen--as well as American flags, store awnings, and camping tents.The company increased production of its custom canvas products locally throughout the 1930s and during the1940 and even fabricated and erected the IBM "tent cities" just outside Binghamton. The seven acres of tentshoused thousands of IBM salesmen during the company’s annual stockholders meeting, which had sinceoutgrown its previous locale. In the 1940s, with the advent of World War II and the increased demand forhospital ward tents, Eureka expanded operations and began shipping tents worldwide. Ultimately, upon thepost-war return of the GIs and the resultant housing shortage, Eureka turned its attention to the home frontduring the 1950s by supplying awnings for the multitude of mobile homes that were purchased.In 1960, Eureka’s new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was usedin a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented tosummit Mt. Everest only six years earlier. In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, withmore than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below-20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.For backpackers and families, Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s. Truly the firstStormShield design, this completely self-supporting and lightweight backpacking tent became one of the mostpopular tents the entire industry with sales reaching over 1 million by its ten year anniversary.
Eureka tents have also traveled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women’sHimalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and Americanwoman in 1986 and 1988. In recent history, tents specially designed and donated by Eureka sheltered EricSimonson and his team on two historic research expeditions to Mount Everest, this time in a quest for truthregarding the 1924 attempted summit of early English explorers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. During the1999 expedition, the team made history finding the remains of George Mallory, but the complete mysteryremained unsolved. Returning in 2001 to search for more clues, the team found amazing historical artifactswhich are now on display at the Smithsonian.Amazon.com Tent GuideSelecting a TentFortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everythingin-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:Expect the WorstIn general, its wise to choose a tent thats designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think youllface. For instance, if youre a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensivefamily or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dashfor safety when bad weather swoops in! If youre a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like tocar camp in all seasons, youll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.Three- and Four-Season TentsFor summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three seasontent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Somethree-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking andother activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-flyfor enhanced waterproofness.For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durablefabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high windswithout collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade fortheir strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.Domes and TunnelsTents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those thatmust be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design,and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surfacewhere snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, manythree-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, butthey require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offersless storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but theymake up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set upthan a dome.Size MattersAsk yourself how many people youd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists andminimalists, check out one-person tents. If youre a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some bigwall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points togive you a little more breathing room. Also, if you dont need bug protection and you want to save weight,check out open-air shelters.Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that willaccommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- andfour-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier itwill be, although its easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. Its also helpfulto compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models youre considering.Read more
