Gallery: The Wedge: Heimplanet’s New Inflatable Two-Person Tent Pops Up...

The reason it's so heavy is because it features thick air tubes and requires you to carry an air pump.

Even though air is lighter than metal, at 7.1 pounds The Wedge actually weighs quite a bit more than your standard backpacking tent. That’s because it features thick air tubes and requires you to carry an air pump. But the tent isn’t exactly designed for hiking the Appalachian Trail; instead, it appeals to people who don’t want to wrestle with poles. The tent is designed to be very intuitive and extremely fast to pitch.

Like The Cave, Heimplanet’s new two-person tent features a network of external air tubes that support the structure of the tent. The air frame is made from recycled material, and the outer layer is made from extra stiff tear-resistant polyester. The Wedge is now available for purchase, and it’s priced at €449.00 ($589).

    I carry a nice 2-3lb tent that uses my hiking pole(s). I\\\’m not so sure I\\\’d want to add 4 lbs to my load while also risking having no shelter if this thing springs a leak? I\\\’m not really sure that\\\’s worth avoiding having to \\\”struggle with poles\\\”.
