About this project

How we came up with the idea

The idea started when I was introduced to hanging tents by my brother-in-law, I thought it was a great idea but wasn't very versatile and seemed like a steep price. I also liked the idea of being elevated up above uneven ground and roots or any other uncomfortable thing on the ground. Lastly I thought it would help to be more comfortable while camping. After tossing around the idea for a couple of months I recruited my friend who has a background in design and many other talents and we started working on this project. We submitted the idea to our schools entrepreneurship competition and made it to the semi-finals with our home made functional prototype. We are excited to move on from our original design and create something even better. We have been enhancing the design to be multi-use so that it will better suit those who plan to use it in many different scenarios. We have researched other successful tent/hammock tent campaigns and look to improve upon their ideas as well as innovate new ones. 

We are asking you for feedback as well as to share our product so that we will be able to make it as good as possible!  

We are constantly updating our Kickstarter page with our designs and steps we are taking to move the process along.

What Makes Us Different

Intentse combines the traditional camping tent with a 3 tree hanging tent design, a traditional hammock/tent design all the while being innovative and versatile.

Here is an info-graph that helps to better explain the benefits and drawbacks from our product as well as our competitions. 

We are going to incorporate a new design for a ratchet that would make the tent even lighter and easier to use with the same amount of overall tension.

Product Description

Our product is a lightweight hanging tent. It can hold 2 people as well as their gear. It is a tent suspended in the air by durable utility webbing which is similar to the webbing that is used for slack lining or climbing. It has a detachable rain fly and can be used on the ground as well as in a traditional hammock setting with 2 trees.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenges right now are making sure that we are able to get enough funding so that we can get more functional prototypes made as well as receive samples from the manufacturers that we have been in contact with. Once we receive the samples we need to test the quality of the product and make sure that it will be something that is durable and can be used many times.
We realize that they are many challenges and future pitfalls but we are excited to take those challenges on.
