Review: TreePod Camper

Treepod

For those of us who are innately distrustful of nature, there is something instantly appealing about a tent that is suspended in mid-air. No hard ground to sleep on , no glitches( or snakes !) crawling in–just pure, elevated bliss.

Such is the idea behind the TreePod Camper, a two-person tent that you hang from a tree with a single duration of rope. The idea stemmed from TreePods first eponymous product, a smaller tent mainly designed to give children a rapid and easy treehouse that can be erected without having to set foot in a Home Depot. That might be fine for junior, but this upgrade–measuring 54 by 84 inches at its base–offers something two adults could actually spend the night in.

5/ 10

Wired

A definite conversation piece around the campfire. More comfy than sleeping on the ground. Effectively maintains critters out.

Tired

Assembly is backbreaking. Balancing the tent involves constant tinkering. My spouse calls it a lovely addition to our yard, which translates to: a $575 addition to our yard.
