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.
