OneTigris are well known for making great quality, affordable tents/shelters that are ideal for activities such as bushcraft and hot-tenting in winter. They’ve never really been big in the backpacking sector… until now – Introducing the OneTigris Cosmitto backpacking tent. Of course, some of their other tents can be, and often are, used for backpacking, but the Cosmitto seems to be the first tent that OneTigris have labelled as a backpacking tent, as such.
2 person OneTigris Cosmitto backpacking tent spec:
Intended for how many people:
Being 2.4kg it isn’t going to compete in the ultralight sector, however, many people are happy to take a tent that is 2.4kg. It’s a roomy tent for one person and if there are two people, they can split the load when on the trail.
The OneTigris website says: 7.2ft4.3ft3.6ft/2.2m1.3m1.1m
Most tent manufacturers give the LxWxH dimensions of both the outer and the inner. However, OneTigris has not done that. The dimensions are not broken down into outer and inner which is frustrating. If you are over 6’ tall this kind of detail really matters.
The inner and outer won’t be the same size or they’d be touching. A tent’s inner is generally a bit smaller than the outer, so as to leave a gap between the inner and the outer. This allows for airflow and helps avoid water ingress.
The tent looks to be a hexagon so we presume their given measurements mean: Length 7.2ft (220cm) x Width 4.3ft (132cm) x Height 3.6ft (110cm) where the Width dimension is likely the width of the inner, and the Length and Height dimensions are probably referring to the outer. We will find out soon – we have just purchased one so we can actually measure it for ourselves.
