Hiking Tent


This is a one man tent, designed for camping or for hiking. The idea incorporates the idea of social camping where more than one person may be camping in the same area.

The whole tent is shaped like a person to ensure that it no space is wasted. The front is a standing structure designed for storing gear. The rest of the tent folds out flat to form a groundsheet while doing things like cooking, eating and socialising.

When the user wants to go to sleep, they fold over the tent and zip it up to be fully covered. For getting in and out of the tent the user has the choice between a zip entrance at the front or a more open setup in the middle.

The tent is made of a single layer hydrophobic canvas. This means it is lightweight and makes for a quite setup. The tent poles are made of extruded aluminium for strength and lightness.
