Different... I have seen and used platform tents when climbing, basiclly a tent/hammock in the side of a cliff for two-three people, but that's a little different, it would need a fair bit of space to put up... I think I'll stick with my HH for now...

That's a combination of the coolest & most ridiculous things I've ever seen. They say it's the most versatile tent around, I think they are dreaming. The practical application would be very limited. It's as heavy as lead, would take hours to set up & requires BIG trees to support it. Can you imagine what's involved in climbing the trees to set each wing? Can't imagine they'd cheap either.

But the novalty cool factor is there.

What were you possibly searching for to find them?

Different is the word, when I first saw the picture for it I thought it was cool as well, but looking through the info came to a very quick conclusion.... be an ass of a thing to set up, as for low impact, id like to see what damage it would do to the trees for starters as it would have to be a long term set up.

was looking through photos on a FaceBook Group "Homesteading / Survivalism's" came across a few interesting items and the Tentsile was one of them, it peaked my interest, never seen the likes of one before.

I think this one looks more functional, despite the fact it's intended to be a child's playhouse.
