Camping isn”t always as fun as you think itll be. Sometimes the ground is too hard, there are too many bugs, and if it rains well just forget about it. Sensing a need, UK inventor Alex Shirley-Smith found a creative way to solve these problems and take camping to a whole new level (literally).

The result? A portable treehouse that”s a cross between a tent and a hammock. Shirley-Smith originally came up with the idea that would become the Tentsile system back in 2010. After an early concept of his portable treehouse went viral, Shirley-Smith and his team got down to some serious work. Tentsile released their first production model The Stingray late last year, and it still has a three week waiting list for new orders.

To set it up you just attach the Tentsile system to any three support points, very similar to hanging a hammock.

Tentsiles flagship product, the Stingray tree tent, has room for three people inside with a waterproof covering on the outside to protect against rain and bugs.
