Attention Eccentrics, There’s A One-Man Mosquito Tent Available


Are you the kind of soccer mom that shows up at the game with an umbrella for the sun, or wears one of those large brimmed hats, just so your kids will die of embarrassment? Or maybe you like donning a poncho. In any case, you’re “that mom”. Well, there’s a new item to add to your arsenal. The Insect, Bug & Mosquito Pop-Up Screen Chair Tent is made specifically for one person, and will protect you from those Zika-carrying insects, while simultaneously making you look like somewhat of a fool. You won’t care, because at $49 you think it’s a bargain and an amazing way to make yourself feel like you’ve one-upped every parent at the game, when in reality the joke’s on you.

That’s What We’ve Always Wanted: Sleeping Outdoors In a Giant Clear Bubble


Screw privacy, we want to be outdoors with a clear view of the sky, but with none of those pesky insects and, you know, pests that lurk outdoors. We want to feel just as comfortable as we do inside, minus the heating, minus the privacy, minus the plumbing, and safety. But behold the night sky! The HolleywebTM Inflatable Bubble Tent House Dome Outdoor Clear Show Room with 1 Tunnel for Camping for Photo (that’s the product name, folks) is an inflatable bubble tent made from PVC with double and quadruple stitching to make sure the thing hods together. Of course if you want it to stay inflated, you’ll have to keep a positive air pressure inside at all times, so there’s the noise of the blower to keep you company as you attempt to sleep.

And for this piece of must-have outdoors lodging, you’ll be expected to pay around $1,600.

Foldable Lonely Tent


There are times when you need to shield yourself from the outside world, but are too far from home to just ‘go inside’. Well, the BT1-11 Foldable Lonely Tent is designed to give you an easily-deployed cube of solitude when you’re outdoors. Unfolding easily, somewhat like a folding reflector, the BT1-11 stands 1300mm (51in.) x 1600mm (63in.) x 1300mm (51in.) when fully open and weighs just 2.2kg (4.85lbs.). It’s not meant to replace a full tent, but instead to serve as a makeshift office where photographers out in the field can quickly do their thing while blocking out some of the sun. There are air vents so you don’t completely suffocate on hot days, and then entire thing is expected to cost around $80 when it’s released. We don’t know when that’ll be, though.

Hemiplanet Cave Is An Inflatable Tent That Can Take A Beating

By David Ponce

Going camping is all fun and games until you have to actually pitch a tent. Pitching a tent isn’t fun and it’s no game. At least not for this klutzy editor. But the Hemiplanet Cave looks a lot simpler and a lot sturdier than your average everyday tent. Featuring a geodesic dome-like structure made from inflatable TPU bladders, a single pump is able to go from limp to rigid in a matter of minutes. The frame is shaped this way because it mimics the molecular structure of a diamond, a material known for its hardness; the frame is thus appropriately called Inflatable Diamond Grid” – IDG. The Cave sits six and sleeps three adults and a multi-chamber system ensures that even if one of the bladders is punctured, the entire thing doesn’t just deflate like a balloon.

High-tech tents don’t come cheap however: the Hemiplanet Cave is €500.
