As anyone who’s ever listened to me talk about tents can tell you, I am quite fond of my Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1.

I’m also known to sing the praises of my Big Agnes Big House 4, which has performed flawlessly for our car camping trips for five years running.

So I’d be hard-pressed to give up my Big Agnes tents. But this Tentsile Stingray 3 Tree Tent sure looks like a lot of fun.

All you need to do is find three trees growing together in a roughly triangular formation, ratchet it up (just like you would a like a slackline), and you’ve got yourself a tent suspended in the air.

It’s probably a lot like cliff camping—though  suspect it’s a little easier to pitch a Tentsile than a portaledge.
