The perfect tent is durable, lightweight, and easy to set up. The Cave from German company Heimplanet delivers on all three accounts.

The Cave is a single-piece, three-person geodesic dome that inflates in less than a minute. And no, it’s not likely to pop thanks to the exterior’s high-tenacity polyester fabric. Plus, each of the air chambers (which act like traditional tent poles) are separated, so even if one were to get punctured, The Cave would maintain its structure.

And if this wind test is any indication, this futuristic tent is more than capable of withstanding anything your next camping trip will throw at it.
