I’ll be honest with you. I’m very much a city boy and I’m not particularly inclined to go camping in the middle of the woods, but if I were to do it, the Tentsile looks like a pretty awesome way to do it. Instead of setting up your tent on the ground like everyone else, you can hang your tent up like a makeshift treehouse.

The biggest advantage, of course, is that you are off the ground. This means that you are less likely to have random critters (including the creepy-crawly six-legged variety) pay you a midnight visit. Just like how they tell you to suspend your food high above the ground to reduce the risk of bears, you can save yourself from Yogi and his pals too.

The Tentsile comes in a number of sizes, ranging from 11 pounds to 100 pounds, and it can be set up in less than an hour. You have to find three points of contact and then the hammock-style tent is suspended above the ground using that tension. A rope ladder is included for getting in and out, but you’ll presumably have to climb the trees the old fashioned way to get your three points of contact.
