Packing just the essentials, and packing them well can be the difference between a successful camping trip and a total disaster. Doing that can be difficult when you are bringing along a tent, or at least it was before the Cinch pop up tent.
Eschewing long complicated rods and bulky storing packs in favor of an ultra slim disk for packing away and a simple U-frame construction – this tent isn’t just easy to open up when you get to your campsite, it has tons of room for you and your crew. To top off the clever build, designer Jake Jackson also thought to include LED lighting on the tents 36 stakes (so you won’t trip over them at night) and a pair of LED flashlight lanterns. Campers have the option of powering these pieces of equipment with a solar panel that rests on top of the tent roof so you won’t have to bother with hucking heavy batteries into the woods. You can reserve your own next month when Cinch gets back on Kickstarter where they are expected to be selling their tents for $225 and up. [Purchase]
