POD Tents are rather palatial, with the Maxi design sleeping a maximum of eight people and the Mini up to four. Not only can connectors bring together multiple PODs, but internal sleeping cells can be purchased, creating miniature rooms for couples or kids. In a way, these tents can function as tiny homes out in the wilderness. The Maxi size POD is about 52 pounds and completely weatherproof, making for a comfortable excursion.

The only concern for consumers is the price. Currently, the Maxi POD comes in at £499 ($780) and the Mini £399 ($625). M2C launched an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign last year for a more expensive Elite model, which would have been £425 and £525 for the Elite Mini and Maxi, respectively. If campers have the dough to shell out that much for the connecting PODs, they can be purchased from the designer’s website, yet penny-pinching outdoorsy types may be out of luck.
“With a lower price comes a compromise on quality, and we aren’t prepared to do that as we want it to be a premium quality product,” says M2C director Jason Thorpe. Nonetheless, POD Tents promise a more spacious getaway for large groups who would prefer having mere millimeters between them and the great outdoors, instead of thick cabin walls.
