We’ve done our part in educating our readers about some of the cool tents out there with one of my favorites being the Tentsile Tree-Hanging Tent. Although the camping and tents won’t cross our minds until next summer, I’ll still go ahead and share another interesting tent I have come across.
This time, it’s the Cocoon Tree Tent which looks just as awesome as the Tenstile tent. The Cocoon Tree Tent is a spherical shaped tent with its structure made out of aluminum and covered in weather resistant material to form a shelter. It’s kind of like a tree house but hangs from the tree branches instead of being built on it.
The empty weight of the Cocoon tent is 60kg and the interior of the tent has a 2.4 meter circular bed featuring a custom sheet which can accommodate two grown folks and a bit of extra room. The aluminum frame is made with a series of ribs that create the spherical shape and hold the bed in place. Each “rib” has a hook for rope/cable allowing it to connect to a tree nearby just like a hammock. The exterior of the Cocoon tent is 3 meters in diameter.
If need be, the living space can also be outfitted with air-conditioning or heating as well.
No word yet on pricing but you can find out more details over at Cocoon Tree.
