Rooftop tents aren’t always the most versatile items on our expeditionary lists. And while the vast majority are built to take on any challenge that the outdoor realm has to offer, they’re usually only good for one thing: camping. But what happens when a company goes out of its way to create something a bit more formidable? Thule’s Tepui HyBox Wedge Tent seeks to answer that very question.
The Tepui HyBox Wedge Tent is a three-season rooftop tent, first and foremost. Where it deviates from the pack, however, is in its ability to multitask. After mounting the compact pop-up on your vehicle’s roof rack, you’ll be able to utilize it as both a spacious storage area or a comfortable, two-person sleeping enclosure at the drop of a dime. Thanks to the HyBox’s waterproof 260g breathable cotton canopy, users will be able to pack their gear, head to their favorite camping area, and set up shop in a matter of minutes. Once the enclosure’s honeycomb-reinforced aluminum shell is extended, just zip on Thule’s included polyester protector to relax in 32-square-feet of insulated bliss.
