Ditch the poles.
With tent designs remaining fairly stagnant these days, it's refreshing to find a tent that breaks the mold in terms of design and construction in the way the Heimplanet Fistral Two-Person Three-Season Tent does. Forgoing the use of poles, the Fistral utilizes an inflatable air frame composed of two dual-layer air bladders, which consist of an inner TPU air chamber with a protective polyester outer cover. The tent can be inflated through a single valve, making the process quick and simple, but each chamber can also be isolated, so the tent won't lose its structure if one of the chambers happens to spring a leak.
Apart from the air frame, the Fistral is comparable to most serious backcountry tents on the market today. The fly is made of a waterproof 40-denier polyester with a nylon ripstop inner canopy. Dual doors and vestibules offer plenty of gear storage space and make getting in and out of the tent easy on both occupants. Heimplanet wisely integrated two zippered vents to help prevent condensation from accumulating along the walls of the tent during chilly nights.

Good Temporary Home
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got this tent for my Uncle that goes to Brazil to build churches. This time he was going to the amazon where they don't have hotels or anything to stay in so I figured that this is the next best thing. It's sturdy and can hold up to the massive rains in the jungles of Brazil and not to mention it's easy to set up.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It's the most practical tent I ever used. Great quality and unique design. Highly recommended.
