The camping tent is one of the most essential pieces of equipment for the great outdoors, but it can also be one of the most aggravating because of poor assembly practices and build quality. Camping enthusiast Jake Johnson understands that frustration, which is why he’s invented Cinch!, a solar-powered pop-up tent that can be easily and quickly set up and disassembled in seconds. Equipped with LED lights, the Cinch! tent comes in a variety of sizes—each the biggest in its class—and folds down into a lightweight rucksack. If you’d like to get your hands on a Cinch!, head over to the Kickstarter where you can place a pre-order that’ll ship just in time for next year’s summer music festivals.
