Aerial Outdoor Shelters

The Branch Tent Lets You Enjoy the Great Outdoors Above the Forest Floor

— August 10, 2011 — Lifestyle
Sleeping on the ground during camping trips could become a thing of the past if the Branch Tent has anything to say about it. The tent is designed to be suspended from a tree's trunk and was conceptualized by Jan Maciej Kochański.

The Branch Tent has a simple setup with only the base requiring poles. Once the band has been secured to the tree trunk and the tent attached, gravity does its job and the tent's setup is complete. The advantages of sleeping in the Branch Tent as opposed to a regular tent are many. The biggest advantage is that you are protected from the elements if you choose to go camping during cold months. Animals and bugs will also be a non-factor as the tent sits too high for curious critters to poke their heads into. Last but not least, the Branch Tent looks like a lot of fun to sleep in, which is something that can't be said about most tents.
