Picked up the Eureka K2 XT tent from backcountry.com ( http://www.backcountry.com/eureka-k-2-xt-tent-3-person-4-season )

We tested it out in George Washington National Forest earlier in December 2015. Also field tested the Yeti in cold weather for the first time. Oddly (but not surprising) enough, the Yeti retained heat in the cold weather as it holds cold temps inside when its hot outside.

I got that table. Love that Lil table. Fairly light super sturdy and when folded up take no room.

How did the tent hold up?

That is a very good tent, unfortunately I learned years ago of my claustrophobia the hard way, small tents and I just don't do well.. Where were you camped in the GWNF?

I just picked up a Eureka Copper Canyon 8 person tent.
Will be sleeping in it for the first time Saturday night. I'll take camp photos. :)

I have a 2-person, 3 season Eureka backpacking tent that I bought back in 1997 and its a BEAST to carry at 5 lbs, The tent is great and as much as I hate to carry it, I still love it.
