Gallery: Tentsile’s New Stingray Hanging Tent Lets You Sleep Comfortabl...

 

Forget about soggy sleeping bags and competing with rocks and debris on the cold, hard ground on your next camping trip – Inhabitat favorite Tentsile just launched a brand new suspended tent called the Stingray that lets you rest high up in the trees! Designed for three-season use, the 13 lb tent accommodates three to four people plus their gear.  Using only two poles inserted into a polyester fly sheet and a set of tree straps, the arched Stingray can be set assembled in about five minutes. The interior is accessible through a floor hatch or side door via a collapsible ladder.

    How do I buy? What is pricing on the Stingray?

    I like the idea of it, having to not worry about the objects or creatures on the ground. Will spare me some cleanup time as well.

    @Zeppflyer, its a triangle not a square so only three suspension points required.

    @Kathy I would wait till the price comes down. The kickstarter price is a bit steep at the 899 pounds pledge. Maybe if the price comes down to 89 quid to compete with the normal camping gear. :)

    So where can you buy one? Well, IF it’s affordable….

    So, this one’s even more difficult to use than the last one that was featured? That one only required you to find 3 sturdy trees with clear space between them in a near-perfect equilateral triangle. This requires 4 in a near-perfect square. Fun!
