Comfort: When in the air, the Universe makes use of Tentsile's patented 3-point anchor system pulls the floor of the tent while giving just enough flex to conform to and cushion your body giving you the most comfortable night's sleep you've ever had in a tent. With minimal sag, you can sleep on your stomach, side or back in complete comfort. When on the ground, the inflatable base provides a soft cushion and creates a gap between you and the ground.

Protection: This tent is completely enclosed and suitable for 4-season camping and heavy rainfall.

Load Capacity: This tent is built to hold 3 adults plus their gear (in the air) and has a 440kg / 880lbs weight capacity and will fit 5 people when pitched on the ground.

Storage: Comes fitted with 3 x internal corner storage pockets, keeping your gear safe and out of the way while you sleep.

Separate Sleeping Bays: Not only do our anti-roll straps add strength to the tent floor, but they also prevent you from rolling into the middle of the tent, even when 1 person is heavier than others. The straps create separate sleeping bays and can be adjusted for different weight differentials.

Waterproof Rainfly: The tent comes with a removable waterproof rainfly (5,000 Hydrostatic Head) which covers the tent and extents outward creating a large area underneath to use as an additional living space or even just a storage. The rainfly will keep you dry you in all but heavy snowfall.

Insect Mesh: The tent comes with a built-in no-see-um insect mesh which (without the rainfly) allows you to enjoy a nice breeze and experience wonderful views while keeping free off insects.

Camp Anywhere: This three-element tent allows you to camp on the ground, but if there’s no level ground available, you can set it up comfortably in the trees, meaning that it doesn't matter what condition the ground below is in. Whether it's muddy, damp or covered in sticks and stones, you can pitch your tent in the trees above and have a comfortable night's sleep.

Winner of The Manual & Men's Journal Best in Show and The Gear Institute’s Gear of the Year, the Tentsile Universe 5-Person Tree Tent is the world’s first Three-Element Tent. As it sounds, it can be pitched in the air, on the ground or even float on water. 

The Universe also comes with a Trillium 3-Person Hammock which is set up below the Universe to add additional support for the tent when suspending between 3 trees.

The rigid inflatable SUP floor provides extra insulation when on the ground but also allows the tent to float on water. This is great for summer days at the lake or even for some casual fishing.

The Universe is spacious, easy to use, durable and everything you need comes included & packs into one neat, trolley bag.

It has a rigid, walkable floor and plenty of storage inside and underneath. When suspended between trees, the Universe can hold 3 adults and their gear but convert it into a ground tent and 5-people can fit inside the spacious tent.

No matter where you go, Tentsile Universe will have you well-prepared when you’re face-to-face with the elements.
