Tent Set Up

Easy two pole dome setup in minutes

Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

Easy and quick to pitch. No leaks in the rain. Not too heavy considering its size. Fits two people easily, as well as their gear. Mesh door provides added ventilation.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Too heavy for backpacking at over 4 pounds. With the rainfly on and all windows and doors zipped up, the interior can feel stuffy.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Tetragon HD 2 has one window and one door and a maximum center height of 4' 0, which is a tiny bit smaller than the average height of the 218 other 2 person tents we have studied. With 35 square feet of room inside, it is a tiny bit larger than some other 2-person tents, and it should accommodate you and, another camper during the whole of the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one are a really nice choice for people who welcome spending loads of time outside the tent exploring.

Many of the fantastic points about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking lightweight, making them easy to carry. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most common of all the various types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the rain pooling on the top. The simplest dome tent should have a square floor, sloped walls a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Down below, you can see a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Tetragon HD can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Has Gear Loft. It is good to see Eureka adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  3. Plenty of Positive Reviews The Tetragon HD 2 has Tons of excellent Reviews
  4. Great Ratings The Tetragon HD 2 has some of the best ratings of all the tents on optimumtents.com
  5. Available in other sizes. Eureka has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  6. Low price. It is a great purchase for a 2 person dome tent providing this much room. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $109.95 info_outline

CONS

  1. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the rain etc, you need keep them inside the tent.
  2. Rainfly does not totally cover the tent. The rainfly only covers the ceiling and part of the tent body from the top. Meaning it might not protect against heavy downpours.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Tetragon HD 2 footprint Even though the floor may be made of 63D 190T Polyester taffeta, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many qualities to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.6 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.6 STARS

Eureka's Tetragon HD 2 tent is ideal for backpacking. Here are a couple of other nice points not mentioned above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: This freestanding, two-pole dome architecture includes a fiberglass frame with clips and ring/pin corner assemblies to ensure fast, easy setup, Includes the exclusive E! Media Center in-tent entertainment hub for quiet time or rainy days, plus two storage pockets and a gear loft and Bathtub floor and fully seam taped construction keep water out.

With exceptional ratings, plenty of reviews and a center height of 4' and 35 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own modest home away from home. It allows you to spend some real quality time hanging out with nature. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can read through above.

If you found this page looking for an endorsement on this actual tent, we consider, it should make for a very good buy. In case you just happened to arrive on this page while looking for a new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent before, it is perhaps a good idea to look at some other comparable tents.

Value for money: In so much as value for your dollar, this tent is without a doubt cheaper than the standard cost of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have studied, this just by itself does not make it awesome value for money. We also need to take into account other areas in detail, as we do with each tent.

When we calculate the valuation of a single tent, we study loads of stuff, searching for areas where the tent could exceed other similar tents and where it is not quite as good. On this occasion, with a total rating of 4.7 and the price conclusions above, we can notice that with a ticket price of $109.95 info_outline The Tetragon HD 2 is an awesome bargain and incredibly competitively priced when compared with comparable tents.

The ratings show that the quality and dimensions the tent gives you were not in any way compromised to get a price significantly below the normal price for comparable tents. It is also worth noting it is reduced by 0% from the manufactures MSRP. It should make a very good choice for most people looking for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to camp with, that will serve you well for years to come.
