The great outdoors: it comes with a lot of bugs. And what if you don’t like those bugs? Enter the WalkingPod Mesh personal anti-insect tent, a wearable fine-gauge mesh tent that prevents pesky bugs from getting too close.
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.
This is the Mad Fly Sports Raptor Football, a toy football/plane hybrid that can be thrown over 100 yards. So maybe for once when my brother tells me to go long, he’ll actually mean it. The toy does require a unique throw (read: not a football spiral) for the creation of maximum lift and distance though, so there is a learning curve involved.
There are countless Bluetooth speakers to choose from these days, so if audio companies want people to take notice, you have to do something pretty different. The Muzen Wild Mini speaker is just that. Measuring about 3″ high x 2.25″ wide x 1.375″ deep, this ultra-compact speaker is small enough to carry in the palm of your hand, but this tiny speaker punches way above its class in build and sound quality.
How do you feel about spending a night suspended from the side of a cliff? If you find yourself getting jelly legs just by looking over the railing when you’re five stories up, then clearly Natura Vive’s Skylodge isn’t for you.
Bluetooth speakers are great to share your tunes with your friends, and they are really useful in your home, to listen to music, shows, and podcasts without worrying about wires.
The Philips SoundShooter is a handy, wireless portable speaker that looks like a tiny barrel.
It’s always been fun to climb trees, and I guess that it’s cool to have some sort of high perch in your garden or in the wilderness to look out from. While you won’t be dragging this unwieldy tent around anytime soon, it’s certainly an interesting way of setting up a treehouse for adults.
If you’ve never liked going camping but don’t want to sit any trips out because you might miss out on all the bonding, then here’s a sort-of compromise for you: get the Camping Hammock.
It’s basically a hammock/tent combo that will let you relax and chill out, even when you’re supposed to be roughing it.
I’ve seen images of a hotel made up of shipping containers, and modern architects using them, but this is the first time I’ve seen one used as a sauna. There are plenty of these old containers around and I bet that you can have them for cheap, if you want to use one of these as a basis for some construction.
Apparently, the hottest way to travel these days is via trampoline. Remember the trampoline bridge concept that made crossing the river fun again? Well, now you’re about to see a 170-foot-long trampoline pathway that makes commuting fun again.
It wasn’t until recently that I realized that sleeping while hanging from the trees was a popular pastime. However, I guess that hanging tree tents not only give you a cool place to rest, but get you up off the ground and away from critters that can’t climb up and into your hovering outdoor domicile.
While I love the idea of all the space inside of an actual TARDIS tent, this one exists only in the real world, providing a space measuring just 61″(H) x 35″ (W) x 35″ (D). Clearly, this is not a tent for lying down in, but it’s just right for pretend time and space travelers – as long as they’re under 5-feet-tall.
You don’t usually see much creativity in the design of rain gutters and downspouts. They all pretty much look the same to me (when the bums in the alley aren’t stealing them for scrap metal). But here’s a cool design that adds a touch of whimsy to the bottom of a downspout, taking the deluge of water that pours out and turning it into a little storm of its own.
Most people don’t expect comfort when they go camping. Most outdoor gear and equipment are manufactured to be tough and durable so that they can endure even the harshest of storms. But just when you thought you’d really have to rough it out in the wild, here comes the Zippered Vents sleeping bag.
When I think of hammocks, I’m reminded of the cool, summer afternoons I spent just lazing away in my backyard. When I think of sleeping bags, I remember the few but memorable camping trips I went to with my dad, uncle, and some naughty cousins.
