Review Pros :

Since these tents are virtually the same, many of the pros apply to each model.

– Excellent quality for both tents

– Both are exceptionally easy to set up

– Price – for both tents, you are getting top notch materials, great designs and both are very fairly priced.  

– Good amount of space with the larger tent offering even more. 

Even the small tent is large enough to house a cot. The larger version is going to be a great option for taller individuals

– Excellent weights for both tents

– Small form factors for both

– Totally Waterproof 

– Great Ventilation 

– The porch is a great feature to this tent as it does offer some protection from wind and the elements such as rain. 

Review Cons :

– Poor Quality Cords on the tent stakes.


– The large vent in the back of the tents isn’t sealable.

– Smaller Version : No pole is included

– Limited Use of the Porch

– With the larger tent, it’s only a 1 person, not 2.

– Bizarre guy line points – limits use of tent. OneTigris really needs to fix this with future versions of this tent – this is a big oversight.

Which would I select to purchase?

With the two Tetra tents, as you can see they are very close to being the same with the ultimate difference being the bug inner. 

If I was to pick one of these tents, the larger version makes the most sense to me as it includes a pole, has the integrated bug inner and is slightly larger. 

The bug inner is the most important aspect as it is going to allow the tent to be used year around.  

To summarize, the Large Tetra tent is the best tent that I tested in 2022; it’s good, really good and has very few flaws.  Speaking of the flaws and issues, I hope that OT can address them as these tents are close to being just about perfect.
