    A secure and weatherproof shelter that inflates in less than a minute.

    Heimplanet's The Cave Cairo Camo Tent is revolutionizing tent design with a super-stable geodesic shape and inflatable frame that's capable of withstanding serious wind and weather, all while being simple and easy to set up. Inflating the tent 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.

    Out of this world... almost

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Recently, while working on the entry module for the Mars 2020 rover mission, I stumbled across the Heimplanet Cave Cairo Camo gem of a Tent. Major structural design issues were preventing us from reaching our safety tolerances of both protecting the rover on impact and keeping a low profile to prevent the landing site from being spotted by any Martians taking their daily stroll when this thing falls from the sky. Enter stage left the Cave Cairo's glorious 75D double-layer polyester ripstop Inflatable Airframe, capable of withstanding serious wind and weather, coupled with... CAMO!!! No way those Martians are gonna spot us now.

    This was literally the perfect solution. We replaced a few titanium parts with this bad boy, and had a test launch over the Nevada desert. The thing worked like a charm; those 11 pounds of delicious tent structure, while costly as far as the rocket fuel goes, paid huge dividends on impact by creating a much nicer crater to shelter the landing pod from those Martian winds. AND the double doors even let us improvise which direction the rover would deploy!

    Unfortunately, the price tag is a bit too high for NASA's budget, so we are working with the manufacturer to see if we can get it down a little lower if we buy a couple of them. Hence the 4 stars. Hopefully we can negotiate a more reasonable price point, because then this tent will literally be out of this world! They'll have to rename it from "Heimplanet" to "Multiplanet", and because they've made such a game changer tent, I'll give them the trademark for FREE!

    Out of this world... almost

    Kind of ridiculous, very pointless.

      Where to start on this disaster...
      How about the price tag? $700 for a 2 person, 3 season tent... why? Because it has some stupid geodesic design?

      And then let's talk about the fact it weighs 11 pounds.. Who in their right mind is going to carry that into the backcountry when you can get 4 pound ultralight tents for 300 bucks.

      Next, inflating the structure (which can get holes and deflate) vs. 2 tent poles (which can't deflate)

      Bottom line, punching yourself in the face is a better idea than hiking this POS into the backcountry, or God for bid, any sort of "base camp"

      The Stealth Tent

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      What's the coolest thing about camping? Sharing your pictures online....duh! With this tent not only can you take rad selfies with your camo colored tent. But other hikers will also be tagging you in photos. You'll be instafacetimegram famous in no time.

      Not only but also!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Multipurpose items in your gear are always a boon and the cave Cairo tent exceeds expectations! Camped above the snow line in sub zero temperatures, we skipped the tent pegs as it was such a still night. A breeze must have sprung up, for when we awoke on Sunday morning and unzipped the tent, to our amazement we had been floated effortlessly all the way back down the mountain to the small township at its base. Not only had we been saved the hike back, but there was a queue of children waiting to pay for their turn in the jumpy castle! Shelter, transport and lucrative - score!

      "Quick Pump"

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      We where packing through the northern Canadian Rockies, 5 weeks in, when we kicked up a family of Kodiak bears. The sow, 700lbs and 12ft tall, starts charging. After 4 cans of bear spray and 8 rounds of 45-70 it was clear the bear would not be stopped. While the bear was preoccupied feading on one of my fellow hikers I remembered I was packing the Heimplanet Cave Cairo tent with quick pump technology. 60 seconds later we had the tent deployed and had hid inside even managing to drag our badly mangled friend in. The bear was no match for the inflatable exoskeleton and bounced off like a child in an inflatable castle. Two hours later the bear began to tire and eventually left. We emerged from the blood, excrement and viscera filled tent like Noah stepping off the Arc, three lives saved.

      A Tent to match your personality

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I got this as a gift for my brother. He loves to go glamping in his newly outfitted truck that just so happens to look like this tent. He could not be more ecstatic! Awesome for those off road adventures and easy to set up.

      Roll cage saved my life

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It was 3am, winter at 34,000 ft on K2. We had the cairo cave tent set-up just a hundred meters from the summit. Unfortunately the storm hit before we could sign the summit register. With ice axes on all four corners, the cairo was a beast. 120 km/h winds battered the dual TPU air frame, but their efforts were futile. We rode out the night until the adze of a black diamond ice axe snapped, causing the tent to dislodge from the icy ground and careen down the north face of K2. Dizzy would be an understatement as we rolled 7,000 vertical feet over crevasses and rocky cliffs. The roll cage kept the tent rigid, so the only thing on our agenda was to wait. After 45 minutes we arrived at Base Camp, unscathed but for minor bruising because Karl forgot to strap himself into the tent harnesses. Karl will not be joining us for our next K2 summit bid.

      Great tent, just couldn't find it

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I was so jazzed on this tent after the wonderful review by ari6332050-0 and when I finally got a chance to go outside, I was pumped. However, after setting it up I went out to pee and couldn't find the damn thing when I came back. You'd think that a tent that includes a roll cage would include a tracking device or some orange thing

      Hells yeah.

        Have you ever worried that fellow backpackers didn't realize how hardcore you are? Well, you won't. If you're packing in the dieselest tent this side of Nepal. If your tent doesn't have a roll cage, I'm hiking straight past you bruh. The geocamo pattern lets you know I'm packing more heat than your jetboil XLR and checking in at a cool 11.9 American lbs means that I'm not missing a leg day on my approach. So recognize that. I'm probably taking your girl and leading her up that 7.8 that made you say "maybe in a couple years babe".But you didn't have the security of double ripstop nylon inflatable air beams over your head last night kid, so I understand. Next time make sure your new Heimplanet Cairo gives you the geodesic testosterone boost only a tent with duel separable TPU air bladders can provide. Son.

        This isn't a review. This is a story. Double ripstop nylon inflatable air beams, geocamo pattern, 11.9 pounds. ALL can be obtained from reading the description of the tent but how was it to set up? How did it handle conditions? How much room in your pack? Sorry, but anyone carrying a 12 pound backpacking tent is a fool.

        Test Review Video

        This is in English. Just the beginning is subtitled.

        "The price tag of $400 euro [$719] is perhaps a small hurdle." ... I'd say it's a deal breaker... weight and many alternatives exist. compare a 1 minute setup time to a 5 minute setup time. Nice attempt to be innovative, but this is just absurd.
