Part hammock, part tent, 100 percent awesome

Hammocks are great. Until they’re not. Say when bugs attack or it starts raining. Or there are no trees.

That’s where the Flying Tent comes in. The main structure is a hammock, but it comes with an integrated rain fly for sudden downpours, mosquito netting to keep the bugs out, and even pitches on the ground like a bivy. Set-up is a cinch and it weighs less than three pounds so backcountry use is a go.

Recently funded on Kickstarter, the gear will start shipping in July.
