    Sleep easy swinging from the trees.

    Don't get caught taking a dirt nap when you could be sleeping easy in the Tentsile Connect Tent on your next camping trip or festival stop. This portable treehouse deploys between three trees via three included 2.5 ton webbing straps equipped with heavy duty locking ratchets for a secure set up. This full featured tent/hammock hybrid is made with a 240-denier inclined joint nylon, polyester composite flooring, tear-resistant mesh walls to keep the bugs out, and a removable 190T PU coated fly to keep you dry once the rain hits. Four doors located at the front and back of the tent make access from any side of the tent easy, while two aluminum poles provide three to four feet of head space while you're kicked back hanging from the trees. As the names suggests, the Connect Tent is designed to be connected to three or more Connect Tents, so you can create your own arboreal commune in which you and all your friends can relax without being bound by the ground.

    no need to count sheep...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am an old man, and the idea of sleeping on the ground is not as appealing as it once was. This tent grabbed my attention and I did not regret it. My wife and I "chased the eclipse" with it and sleep like BABIES every night. We took it as our only plan for 6 nights (four locations) setting it up in TX, MS, GA and NC. I would definitely recommend it to others, and the compliments we got were endless. It was almost enough to make us the "cool kids" again... and that was a long time ago! I will probably buy a T-mini hammock before next my next trip. We clipped my ENO hammock underneath to stash my extra gear and seemed to be a little too low to reach into from my tent.

    no need to count sheep...

    I may never sleep inside again!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It took me a few attempts to get everything set up perfectly, but now that I've got the hang of it, it's quite easy to put up, taking no more than 5 to 10 minutes. The tent is well made, comfortable and feels secure. At first, the price seemed a bit high, but after several nights spent in my Tentsile, I'm hooked. Huge fan of this product!

    A real treat that requires patience

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Overall love the tent.
    At first it can be quite tedious to set up, but once you start practicing it will be a second nature set up. I have used the tent for several backountry trips in Ontario including Algonquin park, Tobermory and Windy Lake (Winter). I also used it in Guatemala, and set it up on the side of a volcano.

    The Pros:
    -Most comfortable sleep you can ask for, as it negates the need to find level/soft ground.
    -Excellent for stargazing and cuddles
    -Weather proof cocoon option by tying rain fly
    -Flexible, even if there are not trees or anchors, can be setup on the ground if needed.
    -Hanging concept leaves much more room at campsites, straps can be useful to hang other things on
    -Roof can be wrapped up to open up and relax in nice weather
    -Tent itself can double as a tarp, and thing s will stay dry underneath
    -Sleeps 1 great, 2-3 well if setup properly

    The Cons:
    -Setup can be frustrating
    -For 2+ people, if tension is uneven, can slide towards the middle (I recommend ass to ass for this).
    -Bag is way too big, and its zipper breaks easily, buy a compression sack for the parts.

    Great Product!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    First off i want everyone to know this tent isn't for everyone. It is slightly heavy, the stitching isn't the best, and there are problems with the poles. If you are willing to overlook the problems any company might have in their first line of products, this tent is exceptional. The pros of this tent that really stand out are comfort, durability, and cool factor. This tent is literally more comfortable than my bed. The tent doesn't budge in heavy winds and rain, and finally it's awesome. You get the comfort of a hammock while being sheltered by a tent.

    Thanks very much for your review, you're right, we did have a few problems with stitching and these are being straightened our with quality control. The poles are fine as long as the tent is in full tension. Once experienced you can reduce the weight by using just one rather than 3 ratchets, see our videos and website to find out how. Thanks again

    No warranty!

      The pole of my tent break.
      I still waiting from my tent been reparated.... 5 weeks.
      No service at all!
      And im not the only one !
      Make research to see all the people who have bend or broken pole problem !

      Hi Eric, Very sorry to see you broke your poles. We always replace poles within 3 days. We also want to highlight that poles will only break if the tents are not set up properly. Please read the manual carefully to understand how to set up.
      We do understand that our range is like nothing you have ever encountered before and we work hard to improve the instructions whenever we get feedback on this.

      It is always a good idea to email us direct at support@tentsile.com with any problem you ay encounter as we are fast to respond and provide help!

      This Tent Doe!!!

      Was able to use this for the first time this past weekend on a bike trip, and it's hands down the most comfortable nights sleep I've had while camping. There is however a couple of caveats that need to be mentioned first is setting up it as it was my first time I semi struggled to get the tension correct when setting it up so I recommend some practice before taking it out for the first time and learning how to get it properly tensioned as if it's not one side seems to droop making it relatively unsleepable, and the second being the durability of the mesh as After 4 days of sleeping I noticed a small hole that makes me nervous. Other than those two points the tent is relatively easy to set up but extremely fast to take down, it sleeps two people perfectly well and is super easy to get into we had it 5 ft up and even while intoxicated I was able to run and jump in (I'm 6'4" 215lbs) and it held me fine this is my go to car camping/lounging tent I LOVE IT!!

      This Tent Doe!!!

      Not for National Parks

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

      I got to check one out on an REI camping class. Before you buy, realize that these are not allowed in most National Parks, and only in designated areas when allowed. Hammocks have been regulated for some time because the straps damage tree bark. Despite not seeing damage when you leave, the compression of the bark makes the tree susceptible to boring insects, disease, and fungus (think of bark as the tree's skin, and this as too tight handcuffs). I've been a fan of hammock camping for some time, and this certainly looks like a cool idea, but just beware before you buy... the Park Ranger will not be pleased and you'll be sad to change your camping plans when you enter the park. Also, the heat loss would be extreme in the winter. Think of it as a single walled tent with wind constantly robbing your body heat from below you, where the insulation of your bag is already compressed by your weight. These would be awesome on private property, other countries with less strict rules, and when you want to look like the coolest, most impractical person at the campsite. Also, for the cost, you could get a really nice four season tent that weighs less, is warmer, and sets up more conveniently. From what I saw, quality looks high, "cool" factor is off the charts, and high comfort is negated by low convenience. Just my 2 cents... you'll have to make your own decision.

      If you are setting up on redwood or other species with soft bark, please be sure to use our Tree Protector Straps. These are like Slack line tree protectors and do not allow bark to compress. We are a Leave No Trace partner and work hard to do this right.

      We Finally Carry These!!

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

      I have been waiting for like 2 years for these to come in. My friend just picked one up not too long ago and it works great. If you are someone that loves hammock camping or someone that wants too but can't sleep on your back all night, this is the answer. I love how flat you can make it so it doesn't sag and I can play spades or scum just like I would in my normal tent. If anyone has questions on any of Tensile products or want to pick a tent up, feel free to reach out to me directly and we can see what personal promo I can throw in for you.

      The only limit with Tentsile is your imagination.

      Get Creative with Tentsile!

      JUMPS! Well, I actually needed a boost into this one. Since we were taking photos and trying to get radical this isn't a location you would ACTUALLY pitch your tent. Too impractical, though it looks rad. Getting in and out at night to go pee would be a nightmare. In reality you probably wouldn't do this.

      Tentsile actually does sell a lightweight webbing ladder, we just currently don't have it in stock yet.

      Well - THAT'S NEAT!

      Having a blast testing out the Tentsile Connect Tent just hangin out over Millcreek!



      I'm scared of heights so this was both exhilarating and terrifying. Though this wouldn't be a very practical place to pitch a tent, it was cool to test the limits of this product. I love that you can get so utterly creative with Tentsile, the only limitations are your creativity and perhaps some know-how with rope work if you you wanted to get TOTALLY crazy and start Tenting off rock faces or over chasms in Southern Utah ; )

      Well - THAT'S NEAT!

      @Patrick Mulligan : You could technically pee out the hole in the center... BUT that wouldn't be nice to do over a waterway, nor your high traffic point of entry/exit.
      Best not to pee near the tent for the most pleasurable camping experience.

      I work outside all the time ,pee in your old water bottle ,dump out when and where appropriate ,problem solved, do it all the time on work site , I don't have the use of a bathroom ,Im a male Ive seen the sale of a funnel type for the female portion of population

      I really love this tent and am almost convinced to purchase, but I've read several reviews that rain is a problem. Many reviewers claimed to have puddles after a storm. What's up with the fly and why might this happen? Has it been resolved? Thanks!

      Hi Danelle,

      I had no issue with the fly at all. It is very secure when put on properly.

      The few times that I have used this tent it did not rain. I cannot see how the inside of this tent would get wet if the fly is put on properly though. :)

      I would much rather be suspended in the air if it rained though than on the ground.



      Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. (I also posted a review down yonder on this page)

      While it says this tent is 4-season, wouldn't it be cold on the floor/bottom just like my hammock? What type of insulation is there on the floor that makes this 4-season compared to the 3-season Tentsiles?

      So we are the only ones marketing the tents 3 and 4 season. If you go onto Tentsile's site they don't make that distinction. I really don't think there is a distinction and all of their tents will protect you the same and definitely hold up in all 4 seasons. The differences in price come with design and features.

      Do the trees have to be perfectly spaced out to set this tent up?

      Best Answer

      Tentsile will find its own space inside any acute-angled triangle. Follow the link to view a video Tentsile released that easily explains this. If anyone has any further questions on these tents or want to pick up one up from me, my direct email is skdavis@backcountry.com

      Is there a maximum or minimum height off the ground for suspension?

      Best Answer

      Hey KDCarver,

      You can actually pitch a Tentsile Tent on the ground, so I suppose the minimum would be zero, but you'd need to hang it at least 3-4 feet high if you wanted to suspend the platform.

      There isn't a maximum height - as that would be determined by your ability to get the ratchet straps around the tree without branches getting in the way. More adventurous folks have actually devised anchors to suspend the tents over chasms or water, but this is only advised for persons experienced with rope safety systems and climbing etc.



      How high you are able to hang your Tentsile from a tree will depend on the type of tree and how high you can comfortably climb.

      15 lbs for a 2 person tent. Is this a joke?

      Best Answer

      It's a suspended tent. The extra weight comes from heavy-duty nylon straps and the ratchet system (which is metal, obviously), plus the burlier floor material to take all the extra weight and tension. 2.5-ton webbing isn't light.

      Hey Rabp,



      Tentsile is best used for car camping or perhaps a short backpacking trip where the weight could be divided between two individuals. Tentsile's next big project is to tackle a more weight-friendly version of their arboreal tents.

      Stay tuned...if you'd like to check out some lighter, more backpack-friendly tents don't hesitate to contact our gearheads by chat or phone!
