Comments Off on Ultra-light Sunda camping shelter is a hammock and tent packed in one

Sunda stretches to eight feet four inches long and four feet two inches wide, boasting 35 square feet of livable space, the most of any tent in its category. With enough room for two people, including gear, dogs and kids, the 35-square-feet interior offers a comfortable sit-up height achieved by the flat ridge and attached brow pole. The structure offers an additional 6.25 square feet of dry storage space for gear, and easy access to both tent doors.

Inspired by the Sunda Flying Lemur, the tent transforms into a one-person hammock which “glides” among trees. In hammock mode, you can have the mesh hang underneath for a “lounge mode” access, or you can engage the ridgeline and attached mesh above you for “jungle mode”. Kammock recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to further develop the already impressive Sunda Tent Hammock. + Sunda Tent Hammock + Kammock

During this year’s ICFF ,  Plywood Office presented Hammy, an outdoor hammock, bench and planter, built together in one sleek piece of outdoor furniture.
