Floating tent floats, makes you less sore come morning

Never Pitch a Tent on Uneven Ground Again

In the hierarchy of camping fun, sleeping on uneven ground ranks somewhere between campfire smoke blowing in your eyes and being chased by a bear.

And it only gets worse as you get older.

Which is why a new floating shelter that avoids the whole “Where should we pitch the tent?” question altogether is a piece of camping gear we can get behind.

With a waterproof exterior, lightweight frame and enough space for three, the Levitat Tree Tent can be hitched up between a trio of trees to provide campers with a sleeping area cleverly suspended several feet above the ground.

Spending a night in a Levitat ensures occupants will remain dry, bug-free and probably a little less sore in the morning. The portable pop-up pad is small enough to fit into a backpack, strong enough to hold up to 880 pounds and even doubles as a yoga mat, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Although the tents aren’t commercially available yet, a Kickstarter campaign is set to begin any day.

To get a discount on the Levitat, send the manufacturers an email with “DESC” in the subject line.
