This transforming tent doubles as a hammock-shelter

Sleep on the ground or in the air

Camping is good fun, until you find yourself sleeping on uneven, rocky terrain in a cooped up tent and wish you were off the ground. If that’s ever happened to you, then the Sunda tent from Austin-based company Kammok could be your next camping necessity.

The first of its kind, the tent allows you to adapt your living situation to your surrounding terrain: it can be easily transformed from a traditional tent into a hammock-shelter. The tent is capable of holding two people at ground level, one when raised off the ground. In the air, it can be used as a minimalist, basic hammock or as a light-weight shelter complete with a tarp and rain fly.

At eight feet in length with more than 35-square-foot of living area, the Sunda is practically a tent mansion. It offers an impressive 40 inches of ceiling height that extends throughout the tent. It also features Lumos shell fabric, which is waterproof and reflects heat to provide sun protection during the day and retain warmth at night. The Sunda just launched on Kickstarter for the early-bird price of $299 and is expected to ship in spring 2017.
