Universe 5-Person 3-Element Tent (Pre-Order for May 2020)

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.

It can be pitched in the air, on the ground or even float on water.

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.
