Though not Iceland, and nowhere near as harsh of conditions as you would find in the Highlands, we opted for Alabama Hills in the Eastern Sierra, which was enough to give us an idea of what this tent is capable of.
Right off the bat, the ergonomic design and Heimplanet’s methodical attention to detail are apparent. At 54 square feet, the tent’s spacious footprint comfortably fits up to three people while still leaving room for gear. Though, the best part has to be its simple setup.
Out of the box, the tent comes disassembled in three separate pieces, the inner tent, the outer tent, and the inflatable airframe. Each piece is connected through a series of D-rings, and putting them all together is about a 10-minute process. A bit of a hassle, admittedly, but after the initial one-time assembly the tent remains one large unit, so you’ll never need to reassemble the pieces again.
