If you’re looking for portable outdoor shelters which you can rely on in any weather, then go for Eureka camping tents.

Just to give you a hint at how big Eureka is when it comes to its camping tents, here are some fast facts.

During the 1960, it was a Eureka tent that was the first tent to be set up on the highest point of the earth on Mount Everest during Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Expedition. Three years after (1963), an all-American team climbed up the same mountain with five dozen Eureka tents on their backs. In 1978, another milestone went up Eureka’s sleeve when the two first women to climb Mount Everest used Eureka tents on their expedition. This just proves how durable and trusty the brand is when it comes to even the most extreme outdoor conditions.
