Carrying a tent in a knapsack may seem very ‘outdoorsy’ when you’re packing for a camping trip at home but when you have to carry the heavy luggage through rough terrain and spend additional energy and time on setting it up in the woods, the idea doesn’t seem too terribly exciting. However, carrying a quick inflating tent doesn’t need to be such a chore and this new tent named the Hemiplanet Cave illustrates that perfectly. Featuring double layer air struts, the geodesic structure of the stable and robust air frame mimics the molecular structure of diamonds and keeps the tent sturdy and upright even in emergencies.
However, the best feature of the Hemiplanet Cave is the One Pump System that inflates the fly sheets, the inner tent and the air frame simultaneously allowing the whole structure to be fully inflated within a minute. In case of defect in one or even two chambers and for stability in emergency situations, the tent comes with 5 independent air chambers separating the air frame via a Multi Chamber Safety System.
To diffuse atmospheric room light, a lamp can also be put inside the detachable Gear Loft below the rooftop. This space can house a lamp or additional baggage. Additional storage space is provided via multiple sewn-in bags inside the tent while space for storing dirty shoes or cooking is provided via the apsis at the entrance. A high degree of stability is created by the inflatable frame (IDG) which comes with five 2-in-1 valves openings that can be removed easily to let the tent deflate itself.
Inside, the tent offers sitting space for up to 6 adults and the space allows three adults to sleep comfortably and fully stretched while storing their baggage inside as well. The mesh can also be used to keep the inner tent well ventilated and well-lit. The Hemiplanet Cave comes with a waterproof 100 percent Polyester Tafetta ground sheet, a breathable, ripstop 100 percent Nylon inner tent and a water proof, ripstop 100 percent Polyester fly sheet. The tent weighs just 11.46 lbs and is available in Ocean Blue, Dark Grey and Light Grey colors. The Hemiplanet Cave comes with an included pack sack, guy lines, repair kit and pegs. The Hemiplanet Cave retails for €499.95.
