We have been asked a lot this year about when we will be releasing a lightweight Tentsile for the backpacking / hiking community. Our stance has been not to step onto the hammock stage as we have great respect for some of the founding fathers of the suspended camping world. That said, everyone in the Tentsile Team now refuses to use a hammock due to their restricted view, lack of elbow room and solitary nature. So we’ve capitulated. For 2016, we’re introducing a two person, super light Tentsile that changes the game up for tree tents and hammock alike. We’ve called it Tentsile Flite, it weighs in at 7.4lbs, uses just one ratchet to create the tensioned floor and will available for pre-order from December 10th, 2015. Here’s to you hikers! We listened to you and have brought you a most marvellous creation. It boasts all the best features of our main line tree tents; no-see-um mesh top, removable rain fly, no-roll stable floor system – but all for half the weight of a, Connect! Go forth and camp wild.
