Eureka! has been manufacturing quality tents since 1895; becoming known over the years as an innovation leader in the outdoor industry. Eureka! was the first to introduce a practical external frame tent (the Draw-Tite) in 1959, the first to design an umbrella tent that combined the roominess of a cabin tent with the convenience of an umbrella frame, and the first to use frame clips to ease set-up and enhance air circulation. Recently, Eureka! developed the patented High/Lowä venting door and low venting fly.
Superior craftsmanship, attention to detail, and product innovation are just some of the reasons Eureka! has enjoyed a first-class reputation for over 100 years. This is why climbers like Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mt. Everest in 1960, trusted Eureka! tents on this Himalayan Expedition to Nepal. Eureka! was also the sole tent supplier to the All American Mountaineering Expedition that climbed Mt. Everest in 1963. And in 1978, Eureka! was with the American Women’s Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna every step of the way. In fact, Eureka! tents have accompanied all the North American “first ascents” of Mt. Everest, including the first Canadian woman in 1986 and the first American woman in 1988.
Free Standing Dome Tent, 1948
Seen as the archetype of all free standing dome tents. It is a free standing tent, which uses arched poles attached to the floor of the tent, with the tent body attached to the poles along the length of the poles. At the top a line attaches the tip of the tent to the poles. The poles are made in sections for compact size when transporting the tent. The patent was filed in 1948.
Robert Blanchard worked for Eureka! This free-standing design concept went on to inspire his DrawTite designs of the '60s. This would be the ancestor for the modern Eureka! Timberline. Now, several "innovative" companies use tensioned pole segments joined by a hub to create a freestanding structure.
Even if your idea of an adventure involves considerably less risk, it’s good to know that Eureka! is made to meet the challenge. We receive testimonials each year from consumers telling us “their story” of how our product met or exceeded their expectations. We invite you to preview our product range and see for yourself why Eureka! is the best value in backpacks and tents. Welcome!
