Product Overview

The Universe can be pitched in the air on top of a Trillium Hammock, on the ground making an insulated sleeping area, and even on water to create a massive lounging and diving platform! Huge, spectacular and infinitely versatile, the Tentsile Universe is in a league of its own when it comes to gear. 

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. Just as it sounds, The Tentsile Universe can be pitched in the air, on the ground and even on water!

The Universe comes with a Trillium 3-Person Hammock which supports the Universe when set up in Air Mode and is suspended between 3 trees. Everything you need for all three modes are included with the product purchase.

The rigid inflatable SUP base provides insulation in both ground and air modes but also allows the tent to float on water. This provides an amazing sunbathing deck and play structure, great for summer days at the lake or even for some casual fishing.

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

  • Recommended setup height is 1.2m / 4ft.
  • Due to continuous design improvements, details may vary slightly from those stated here.
  • Not suitable for more than 3 months continual use at a time. Our Tree Tents and Hammocks are not intended to be permanent structures. Each of our products has a UV rating which advises on average how many hours the product can be left out exposed to sunlight. This can vary depending on climate and altitude. If left out in the sun for prolonged periods of time UV degradation will occur, affecting both the colour and strength of your product. Our best practice advice is to pack away your tree tent or hammock after each use, ensuring it is both clean and dry.
