Love camping, but hate the uneven ground and / or insects that may be crawling around? Pick up a Tentsile Flite. This four season tree tent can be strapped to a backpack when not in use, and then fully-assembled in 10-minutes. Don’t let its construction fool you, this tent comfortably supports two full-sized adults, along with their gear, keeping both suspended in mid-air – up to a 485-pound load. Measuring 8′ x 11′ when set up, it offers 40-square-feet of floorspace and weights a mere 7.3-pounds. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and additional information.
“Since we brought up the scope of installation, the Flite can be easily set up within 10 minutes, by strapping its angular projections to the tree branches. Simply put, one needs to find an area that roughly corresponds to a triangular space with three trees at the points. The Flite can then be tethered to the trees by using the end-straps, while the entire ‘treehouse’ tent is kept taut above the ground with the help of a single ratchet. This suspended nature is accompanied by a bent aluminum pole that stretches across at top to support the makeshift roof,” reports Hexapolis
