If you are "real" campers (those who bring a tent, a stove, an air mattress and a steel pot), you should know the German brand Heimplanet. Germans are great campers who have all the necessary equipment to not miss anything. home planet has been around for nearly 20 years and as early as 2011 introduced its first inflatable tent model.
Since then, the company has been in continuous development in this sector, with an interesting focus on inflatable poles instead of the standard ones: today comes the latest model that perfects this idea. It is called The Cave XXL.
What is the concept behind The Cave?
The Cave is a "geodesic" inflatable tent for two or three people, which inflates with a pump in less than a minute. Its ten points of intersection constitute a real exocheletro that makes it stable and resistant.
It has a waterproof ripstop polyester flysheet and a nylon inner tent. Towards the inside, five ventilation points (closable) and an entrance give the structure exceptional flexibility and excellent air exchange. Stability in the event of breakage is also guaranteed: the air chambers are separate and individual.
Yes, but what has this inflatable tent better than the others?
In summary: it is a four-season inflatable tent that can afford the luxury of withstanding extreme conditions (the tests were carried out in the Icelandic tundra, where it has easily endured exceptional cold and snowstorms).
Not bad for a curtain that pulls up in sixty seconds, isn't it? Two words about the dimensions: with over 5 square meters it exceeds the previous model also in volume: in other words, not two people and a child, but three full people.
And now we come to the painful notes: the “invincible” bivouac has its price. Whether it's Amazon or the brand's website, you'll be fine in a week (for delivery) with no less than € 700, which goes up to € 1000 in the larger model. Did I mention that I don't take any money for this review, no merchandise, no product tests, nothing?
