We have seen Tentsile grow from a one-product company to become a global authority on tree-camping, offering a complete line of tents and accessories. One thing that still lacks in its alignment is a solo tree tent that can balance face to face with the numerous hammock shelters there are. However, it will not be long, as Tentsile is preparing to launch the UNA. Tentsile has expanded rapidly as it has become smaller, following its three-person Stingray for all seasons with two-person Connect, two-station flexible and two-person Light Flite.
The new UNA, of three seasons, will fill the gap of a single person and will be launched as the tent for a compact and light Tentsile. With 6.2 lb (2.8 kg), it will not be the lightest shelter available, but Tentsile calls it the lightest tent solution in existence. We think that depends on how you define Tree Tree versus shelter hammock, but in a nutshell, the UNA is the Tentsile with which you want to backpack, row or ride a bike if you plan to sleep alone.
Like other Tentsile stores, the UNA is suspended from every corner of its triangular base, creating a flat, tensioned bed. The non-visible mesh body takes shape with the help of an aluminum pole, which provides a clear view of the stars and the sky above. That rainfly can be redefined to create a protected area of ??25 square feet (2.3 m2) to store equipment under the tent. A large door facilitates access to the UNA, and the left and right side pockets provide storage space. The UNA measures 9 x 9 x 5 feet (2.8 x 2.8 x 1.6 m) when installed and provides a floor of 2.2 square meters. It can support up to 330 lbs (150 kg).
