"Ever used a tree tent? Tentsile Flite???"

So I caught this tent at CampSaver while looking for stuff and was wondering if any of you have ever tried something like this? I don't know what to think. Looks to me like it could move a lot in the wind and being up off the ground like that, that cold air could come in from below. And then what about cooking? I suppose there's no doing that inside the tent.

What you all think? Anyone ever used one?

The hippie hikers can have it! I agree I think it would be cold.

Bryan,.. Really!! I think it would be very hard to get dressed inside there!!! Also do you realize how hard it is to climb into that thing. But it would definitely rock you to sleep!!!?

I would probably fall out of it and face first

Maybe you're supposed to set it up over your campfire for warmth????

Seriously, I can't see how that tent is a solution. I'll bet no one got rich on that invention. But maybe I'm wrong. People use those hammock tent things. I remember a couple buddies of mine used those hunting one year. Granted, they did so as a favor.
I've got to sleep on my stomach at times. No way can that happen in a hanging tent.

Remember as a kid sleeping on a trampoline with friends? You'd wake up in the morning and everyone was packed in middle compressed together. That's got to be how this tent would be, right?

Well i am a newbie to the hammock world only my second year
I use my hammock for mainly backpacking and find it is very easy to find some trees while backpacking. I'm looking to buy underquilt (just researching https://productadvisor.com/best-hammock-underquilt/ ).

The first morning I woke up after sleeping in my hammock, I felt like I could breathe deeper, stand taller and felt much better than ususally. So definitely go for a hammock!

We had a guy roll into our camp area around midnight and set one of these contraptions. Seemed like hours laying there listening to all the commotion, tree climbing and ratchet straps for hours it seemed. Couple that with the groups of dogs he had with him! Made for some mean mugging in the morning.

I have the hammock version (no tent on top, just the triangle base). The family has a good time with it. Finding 3 trees that work for the shape of the equilateral triangle can be a bit of a challenge. There isn't a problem rolling toward the middle because each side of the triangle is like a mini shallow hammock. Combine that with how taught it can be drawn with the ratchet straps and sagging isnt a problem. Overall, it is very comfortable to sleep on--more so than a traditional hammock. Kids go nuts when the thing is set up. They have a blast with it. They will pile on and play on top of it and use it like a trampoline. I'm not using it for my next backcountry hunt, but it is fun for car camping and day trips into the woods.
