Imagine waking up to a beautiful view from the treetops after a good night’s rest. That’s the idea behind the Stingray Tent. Tentsile founder Alex Shirley-Smith first envisioned the concept in 2012, and since we featured his first prototype, we’ve watched his ingenious idea blossom into a booming business. The Stingray is now their flagship tent, designed to hold up to three people in elevated comfort.

The Stingray’s surprisingly spacious interior consists of three sections draped in a rip-resistant insect-mesh. The tent can be suspended between three trees or any sizable anchor, whether it be columns, trucks or boulders. Campers may enter the tent through its center floor hatch and a large front flap. The removable rain fly that opens up for outstanding treetop views can even be pegged to the ground, acting as an enclosed porch.
These tents were designed to be “treehouses that you can take anywhere.” We can’t imagine a better way to see the world.
