Versatility is what you want from a sleep shelter when you wander deep into the wilderness. And the lightweight, durably-designed Sunda delivers. This tent-hammock does it all, whether your campsite is a mossy grove or a steep stand of pines. Its modular design makes it simple to set up on the ground or hang it in the trees. Either way, you have a dry, weatherproof & well-ventilated shelter for 2+ people. A funded Kickstarter.

Made of double-walled stainless steel, the Bonfire from Solo Stove is a sleek efficient fire-pit; perfect for taking the chill out of your autumn evening gatherings.

For festivals like Burning Man and Coachella where your chances of literally melting from the heat are pretty decent, the 6-person No Bake Tent could be a lifesaver. It’s a got a unique design that keeps you from roasting alive when the sun pops up and starts baking the mesa. The outer layer of the tent reflects and blocks 90% of infrared & visible light rays, so it stays warm and dark inside. It is 6’6” tall and offers a long list of windproof, dustproof, and custom comfort features.
The compression of your sleeping bag and clothing against the tension of the hammock can make you chilly. The Hammock Cocoon solves that problem. It encases your entire hammock with layers of Travelsoft insulation—this not only reduces compression but keeps you warmer and even reduces wind chill. Made of anti-bacterial fabric it stores in a compact compression stuff sack & weighs just 6 pounds.

When it’s time to break camp & move on, it all rolls up & stores in a duffle bag.
