Are you planning for a camping expedition or holiday in the woods? The Tentsile you select can make or break it. For years, people remained fixated to ground tents. But they became too risky because of rocks, creeping animals, and even flooding. Researchers, on their overdrive, were not late in crafting better options that are more reliable, extra comfortable, and highly durable. Welcome to the world of Tentsile! Here is the best tentsile tents of 2017 that every camper should read.
The Tentsile Connect
The Tentsile Connect is a tree tent hammock with a rainfly. It is carefully designed to comfortably accommodate 2 people (a maximum load of about 880 lbs).
However, you can make the experience more enthralling by connecting it to the adjoining units of a camping hotel. Every connector comes with 4 doors so that the entire family can enjoy the best moments away from home.
While other tree tents are mainly designed for warm weather camping, the Tentsile connect is carefully engineered for all weather. Well, no matter the time of the year when you want to head to the woods, this hammock will not disappoint. It has an insect mesh-roof and easy to remove rainfly.
Whether you have just had a long hiking day or it is raining, simply lie inside to enjoy the uninterrupted connection to nature.
One thing to point when using the Tensile Connect is that it must be properly secured above the ground and held tight enough to hold the weight of the two. The good thing about the tent is that it comes with an easy to use manual that makes it easy for a camper to simply pack and head into the woods.
The Tentsile Flite with flysheet
This is the latest in the Tentsile’s latest innovative hammocks and tree tents. It is light enough to simply pack in minutes and head to the wild. It has a triangular shape when suspended with 3 straps and one heavy duty ratchet. The single pole is enough to provide the entire inner height as well as flysheet cover full support.
While many 3-person design hammocks are engineered with heavy materials and cover bigger areas, the Tentsile Flite with flysheet is different.
It utilizes a single ratchet to keep the weight low and also covers a smaller area (2.5×2.5x3m). While the 3.5 kilograms do not make this Flite fit in the lightweight category, the parts can be separated for extra portability.
Though the Flite is the latest in the Tentsile range of camping products, its assembly can be more time consuming compared to other models such as the tensile connect. Despite this, you are assured of extra comfort the entire camping period.
The Tentsile Vista is a 3 person camping hammock designed for camping in cool weather such as summer and sprints or fall. It is heavily built to hold the weight of up to 880 lbs. When carefully pitched, the hammock opens to 48×180 inches, which is enough to hold three people and some items comfortably.
It has a triangular shape that provides entry from all the three sites. The Vista’s interior offers 2 levels of protection; rainfly and an insect mesh. To enjoy your stay, it is advisable to ensure it is located only 4-4.5 feet above the ground. This allows easy entry into the hammock all the time.
Vista comes with two major cons. One, the hammock is not ideal for camping in extremely cold weather or precipitation. Two, you must get three key points to tie the hammock to.
