bogus tent weights on 07/08/2007 08:52:41 MDT Print View

No personal experience, but if I didn't already have a <3lb tent I would have bought one to try out.

Edit; Ben, thanks for the info. Most sites show it as 2/14; one at 2/4; and those both seemed really light for the framework in the pics.

Eureka is notorious for lying about its tent weights. Folks should add half a pound (more or less) to convert stated to actual.

I have encountered posts saying that Eureka stats are accurate, but those are relatively few as compared to the ones who complain otherwise.

Here's our review of the Zeus that they now call the Zeus 2 Classic.

it's simply a typo.
