“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

Henry David Thoreau, Walden

The Eureka I.C.S. is a one-man, three-season, free-standing, double wall tent. This tent is designed by Eureka! to replace the venerable but archaic Shelter-Half. It accommodates the 5th through 95th percentile male and fits into the MOLLE Rucksack.

The Eureka I.C.S. supports four configurations: tent only, tent with rain fly, rain fly with ground sheet, and fly as tarp or "hooch". The tent is available in Woodland Camo or Desert Tan, with blockout and breathable Woodland Camouflage tent body. Each tent comes with factory taped fly and reinforcement seams. The shelter includes extra guy out lines for high wind conditions.

Eureka ICS 2000 Tent Set Up: Tent, Poles and Stakes

Unpack and separate the components. Unfold the tent with the floor on the ground. Do not stake the tent down yet. However, when windy, stake down one corner into the wind.

Join the long, shock-corded poles together. Try to prevent pole sections from snapping together, as this can damage the pole ends. Make certain each insert (male end) has seated firmly into each plain end (female).

Lay the poles across the tent in an X pattern. Then insert the post of each pole into a grommet on the stake out webs.

At the opposite end, arch each pole and seat its post into the stake out web grommet to maintain tension.

Raise both poles over the tent and secure with the toggle and loop from the top center of the tent.

Attach all of the tent clips to the tent poles.

Place the tent in the desired location and stake it down. Drive the stake through the stake out web loop only. Do not stake through the grommet. The tent is ready for use.

Tent with Fly Set Up: Tent, Poles, Stakes, Fly and Fly Rod

Eureka ICS 2000 Improved Combat Shelter Tent assembly

Assemble and stake down the tent as instructed above.

Assemble the short, shock-corded fly rod. Try to prevent pole sections from snapping together, as this can damage the pole ends. Make certain each insert (male end) has seated firmly into each plain end (female).

Slide the fly rod through both rod sleeves on the top of the fly. Insert the rod end into the grommet inside the web loop on the front of the fly.

At the rear of the fly, grasp the web thumb loop and arch the fly rod. Seat the rod post into a grommet on the web.

Eureka ICS 2000 Improved Combat Shelter Tent velcro fasteners

Drape the fly over the tent. It only fits one way. Align the rod from door to door with the vestibule over the small door. Reach under the rain fly and secure it to each pole with the attached Velcro® fasteners.

Attach each side release buckle from the fly to their mates on the staked out webs. Adjust web tension as necessary.

On the right and left side hem of the fly are guy out loops. Tie the guy out lines to these loops, pull taut and stake them down. The tent is ready for use.

Fly with Ground Sheet Set Up: Fly, Fly Rod, Poles, Ground Sheet and Stakes

Eureka ICS 2000 Improved Combat Shelter without tent body

Unpack and separate the components. Unfold the sheet onto the ground.

Stake the sheet down, pulling it taut as you work. Drive the stake through the stake out web loop only. Do not stake through the grommet.

Assemble the shockcorded poles and fly rod. Try to prevent pole sections from snapping together, as this can damage the pole ends. Make certain each insert (male end) has seated firmly into each plain end (female).

Set the short fly rod aside and lay the long poles across the tent to form an X. Insert the post of each pole into a grommet on the stake out webs of the ground sheet. At the opposite end, arch each pole and seat this post into the staked out web grommet.

WARNING: Do NOT operate any device which burns fuel inside this tent. Combustion consumes oxygen, and can produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide which could lead to serious injury or death.

Slide the fly rod through both rod sleeves on the top of the fly. Insert the rod post into the grommet inside the web loop on the front of the fly. At the rear of the fly, grasp the web thumb loop and arch the fly rod. Seat the rod post into a grommet on this web.

Drape the fly over the tent and align as shown. Reach under the fly and secure it at the top and to each pole with the attached Velcro® fasteners.

Attach each side release buckle from the fly to their mates on the staked out webs. Adjust tension as necessary.

On the right and left side hem of the fly are guy out loops. Tie the guy out lines to these loops, pull taut and stake them down. The shelter is ready for use.

Fly as Tarp Set Up: Fly, Guy out Lines and Stakes

Tie a guy out line to the web loop located at the peak of the fly. Tie the same line to an overhanging branch or similar object. Adjust the line to fit height.

Tie guy out lines through the web grommets and the web loop on the fly. Pull these lines out and away from the fly and stake down. Adjust line length until taut. The shelter is ready for use.

Engineering Note: Staking- Extra Guy out Lines and Stakes [not included]

When high winds or storms are predicted, requisition extra guy out stakes. This model fly has built-in loops at optimal guy out locations. It’s important to put in the extra time guying out your tent. Correctly done, it can save your tent during heavy weather.

  • Attach parachute cord to the loops and stake them in the ground three or four feet from the edge of the tent. If staked too close to the tent, the wind can cause an upward pull and may dislodge the stakes.
  • Make sure that the top fly is securely attached to the framework underneath. The hook and loop fasteners sewn to the underside of the fly are for this purpose. Be sure to use them.
  • It is a better idea to run two cords at an angle from the side of the guy out loop. This will prevent all movement, except toward the anchor. The guy lines will now work together through opposition.
