Tree-hanging tent provides above-ground shelter

Mar 16, 2012 No Comments by

This strange looking tree shelter was created by a team of British designers, to provide portable habitation for campers while also minimizing material usage.

Since the Tentsile tent is suspended above ground level it can easily be erected over waterlogged ground, desert sands or rocky landscapes.

Tentsile is easy to assemble and can be suspended in a number of locations.

The Tentsile shelter features a collapsible frame with webbing straps that are made from fire-retardant, UV- and water-resistant polyester fabric infill panels
