Camping Gear: The Tentsile Stingray

photoSo I like tree houses. My man likes hammocks. And I’ve just found a tent we can both agree on: Tentsile’s Stingray tent. From a distance it looks like it’s floating, but it’s attached to trees by three anchor points which are ratcheted tight, after which it kind of hovers. In mid-air. It’s a portable treehouse. Or a hammock with shelter. Either way, it’s cool.

IMG_0743The Stingray can hold three adults, and is designed to stop everyone rolling together into one big heap in the middle of the night. Just think how nice it would feel, up off the ground without the cold or dampness of the ground beneath you or tree roots and rocks underfoot. And depending on where you are, it can keep you out of the way of snakes or bears. The Canadians are gonna love these! There’s a two metre ladder that clips on with a couple of caribiners. But if the ground is dry and soft, you can pitch it on the ground too.

  1. That’s pretty cool (and very unusual!) but the best thing here is the camp site, which is spectacular!

    I wonder if you can use this kind of tent in places that otherwise wouldn’t allow camping? If you can find three stout trees, then you can avoid smothering a big section of fragile alpine meadow.
