Ridiculously simple, but the El Capitan 4 has proven the test of time. Rugged aluminum poles hold up the basic dome structure while a fly rod holds the fly out over the doors to allow for dry entry and functional venting during rain. The El Capitan series of tents continues to be Eureka's top selling canoe tripping tent. Vents located towards the top of the tent allow for hot air to rise out creating a venting draft which draws cool air in from the bottom.
Continually Eureka's #1 canoe tripping tent and the tent most often copied but never matched. Simplicity in design but built to expedition standards. One of those products that you don't fix if it ain't broken.
