Here at Outdoor Revival we’re always on the lookout for cool kit and exciting innovations, the bottom line is that we love to get out not the woods or on the trail and play with kit. We’ve just come across the Sunda 2+ tent and hammock system, and we want one and because we want one we’re fairly sure that there’s going to be other people that want one as well, so it’s worth spreading the word.
The information below is mostly taken from the Sunda Kickstarter campaign where you can jump on board and pay a discounted price if you support them in getting it into production.
Is it a Tent? A Hammock? An Animal? Yes, Yes, and Yes. You asked us for a world class tent. And we asked ourselves, what if?
With the help of our MOB community, we’ve spent the last few years discovering the most important qualities in a tent: versatility, durability and livability. When designing the Sunda, we made sure that it could adapt to your needs in any environment, outlast any adventure–big or small, and feel like home wherever you decide to set up camp.
Then, as the lovers of hammocks that we are, we wondered, “why not use what we know about hammocks and take this tent off the ground?” Add a little inspiration from the animal kingdom (a flying lemur named the Sunda!), and we were off to the races…
We know the difficulty of matching variable landscapes with the changing needs of your daytime, nighttime, and weekend adventures, so we’ve created a product that can do it all, and then some. Think of the Sunda as four unique shelters in one: your best-in-class tent, all-in-one camping hammock, ultra-light shelter, and minimalist hammock.
No trees, No problem
The Sunda stands alone as a best-in-class, freestanding 2(+) person tent. Stretching to 8 feet 4 inches long and 4 feet 2 inches wide, tent mode boasts 35 square feet of the most livable space of any tent in its category. Built with cutting-edge, ultra-durable fabrics and constructed with time-perfected production techniques, the Sunda outlasts and under-weighs comparable tents.
Rocky ground? Go aerial:
The Sunda doesn’t stop as a ground dweller. Modeled after the Sunda Flying Lemur, this tent transforms and goes aerial, converting to a one-person, all-in-one hammock shelter. Elevate your overnight experience, give your back a break from the rocks, and let the gentle breeze rock you to sleep.
Traveling light, Beat the heat:
Using Sunda’s fly, poles and footprint to create an on-the-go sanctuary, Fly Light™ mode acts as an ultra-light shelter to save pack weight in circumstances not requiring insect protection. Fly Light™ mode opens new opportunities for use as a pool-side beach shade, park picnic shelter, festival VIP hangout, and more.
Good weather? Easy access:
Kick your feet up on minimalist adventures and bring your afternoon read into the trees — and even let two companions share your Sunda’s Fly Light™ ultralight shelter. In hammock only mode, you can have the mesh hang underneath for easy ‘lounge mode’ access, or you can engage the ridgeline and attached the no-see-um mesh above you for ‘jungle mode’.
