This 45-square foot inflatable tent is a cool piece of engineering that takes some of the frustration out of camping. Thanks to its intuitive set up and clever design, the inflatable tent is easier to pitch than a conventional pole tent and is much stronger and more wind resistant than a typical hanging or single pole tent.

The Fistral Inflatable Tent is compact enough to fit into a backpack when it’s rolled up, yet expands into a handsome and structurally-sound geodesic dome shape when inflated. Just use any mini pump or air compressor and the tent pops up in under two minutes.

To take it down, simply open the valves and it folds and stows in just as little time, making for a quick and easy getaway. The Fistral Inflatable Tent is wide enough to let one person sprawl out or two people get cozy, and it features a robust, patented multi-chamber safety system for stability.

The nylon tent features adjustable flap windows for great airflow and ventilation, pockets for storage and a comfortable, even aesthetically-pleasing shape. Plus, the whole structure weighs only six pounds dry. Thanks to its ease of use and compact carrying size, the Fistral tent from Hemiplanet is one of the top choices for occasional campers and full-time nomadic adventurers as well.
