You can use the flying tent as floating tent between two trees,
as well as a bivy tent on the ground.
By removing the upper section using the zipper on the side you can easily turn the flying tent into a traditional hammock.
The optional use of the hammock as rain poncho protects you from bad weather conditions.
What's your color?
You can choose Your flying tent out of three colors - sunset, grasshopper and ocean view.
You know the moment when you struggle setting up your tent? Not with us.
The technically innovative, patent pending solution with its fibreglass poles is based on the simplistic function of throw tents and allows an uncomplicated setup within 7 seconds. Due to the ultralight materials and valuable workmanship the flying tent weighs only 1,2 kg/ 2.64 lbs.
To ensure a long lasting product we manufacture with high quality and weather resistant materials.
It blows away any other hammock solution. No more mosquito bites, stay whereever, whenever you want. We keep the mosquitos away.
The flying tent has a clever ventilation system. On the bottom cool fresh air gets in trough inlet and escapes at the crescent –shaped vent windows on head and foot end.
Our smart and small packaging size of 40 x 34 x 4 cm or 15.7 x 13.4 x 1.6 inches makes flying tent applicable in any situation.
We have moved ourselves away from nature. Our lifestyles don’t allow us to spend much time outdoors anymore. We, the flying tent team, think that it’s about time that we reconnect with our source. “I’m simply out”, to capture awake emotions and leave the daily grind behind for a few hours.
Whether in the Austrian countryside or mountains on our doorstep – the outdoors is our passion. Our mission is to share this passion: with smart and reliable outdoor gear, independent and free outdoors.
The flying tent is not a single product, but the start of a vision for fully enjoying nature and travelling. Our Vision: “Smart outdoor gear with freedom and lightness on top for all people, who are looking for the ‘simply out’“.
Two trees for one flying tent
Our hearts beat for nature and the environment. For that reason we want to plant two trees for each pre-ordered flying tent on a piece of land.
Why we need your support
Until now we have developed a number of fully operative prototypes. Although we were able to finance the flying tent up to this point on our own, we now need your support to produce the first batch of flying tent.

Risks and challenges
As with any product development, unforeseen challenges are possible. The good news is that we have produced fully functional prototypes. We also ensured the producibility of flying tent and the availability of the required components with our manufacturers. Our team of professional industrial designers, engineers, sales, and marketing experts have a pretty good idea of what lies ahead and we're well equipped to deal with whatever comes our way.
That said, there are common obstacles that sometimes come up, which include:
• Design changes or minor adjustments to improve the final product causing delay
• Manufacturing, component, and material shortages from outside suppliers
• Shipments that are lost or damaged
• Customs delays
• Fulfillment: Delivery delays due to weather, strikes, inaccurate address information, doorstep package theft, etc.
As always, we are dedicated to making sure you know what is happening every step of the way. We'll be updating all of our "Adventurers" regularly and letting you know exactly what's going on.
Any pledge you make brings us one step closer to the goal. Help us make the world's first flying tent happen by clicking the "Back This Project" button at the top of the page. Also help us spread the word through sharing this Kickstarter page and linking over to our Facebook page and flyingtent.com web page. This networking will help us to reach our funding goal.
After all, we're doing this together!
We thank you for your faith in us!
