Inflate for shelter.
Who knew that inflatable bouncy house you used to play in as a kid could actually be converted into a super-techy shelter for backcountry missions? All jokes aside, Heimplanet's The Cave Tent is revolutionizing tent design with a super-stable geodesic shape and inflatable frame that's capable of withstanding serious wind and weather, while being simple and easy to set up.
Inflating The Cave is made easy through a multi-chamber system that allows the tent to be inflated through a single valve, but the system also allows the air chambers to be isolated after the tent's been inflated, so the whole structure doesn't deflate if one beam springs a leak. Each air beam features a dual-layer construction with a TPU inner air bladder and stiff and wear-resistant polyester outer cover. The fly of the tent is composed of a PU-coated polyester, providing waterproof protection, while the floor is made of a 70-denier nylon for added protection against the abrasive ground.
The tent will comfortably sleep 2-3 people, but can also serve as a central shelter at base camps. Multiple pockets inside the tent keep gear organized and clutter to a minimum, and the large entrance makes getting in and out of The Cave as convenient as possible. Heimplanet even attached five closable vents to prevent The Cave from becoming an actual damp and dewy cave after three people are walled up in there on a cold night.
