Tiny Tents are exactly that: tiny tents with all the features and functionality you’d expect to find in a regular size tent, but measuring only 18″ x 18″ x 12″ when pitched. I mean if you can even consider assembling one of these tiny things as pitching a tent. Maybe just underhand lobbing a tent, or even casually rolling a tent.
The tents, which are available in alpine green and sky blue over at REI, retail for $20 with standard features that include two zipper side doors with zipper mesh windows, a removable rainfly, tarpaulin floor, interior stash pockets “for stowing really tiny accessories,” a mesh stargazer roof, plastic tent poles with elastic connection for easy setup, and a whopping 2.25 square feet of floor space.
Obviously, the tent makes a great pet bed for small dogs, cats, and hedgehogs, or the perfect camping accessory for the action figures I still play with. I tell my wife they’re actually extremely valuable collectibles, but she knows. She knows.
