Tents are built for function and rightly so. If they can’t serve their primary duty of keeping you sheltered in the wild, no one would buy them. But I guess we missed the memo that said all portable shelters had to look boring. Fortunately, so did the guys at FieldCandy Tents.
Instead of giving you more of the same humdrum blank single-color canvas, these tents come with huge colorful graphics printed all over the flysheet panel. There’s a wide range of designs to flick through, too, so whether you’re into pop art, animal print or some other type of graphic visuals, you should be able to find a few designs that tickle your fancy.
FieldCandy Tents are spacious two-person portable shelters that measure 3.55 x 1.7 x 1.4 meters (l x w x h) and weighs 7.4 kilos. Durable, waterproof and fire-retardant, the tents should hold up to the elements just as capably as any other camping shelters in the market. Each one features a breathable cotton inner tent, heavy-duty YKK zippers, hardened aluminum pegs, “easy set up” poles and a generous porch area.
The star of the tents, of course, are the designer flysheets that come in numerous limited edition designer prints. Each one is only available until supply runs out (they list how many units still remain), so if you fancy that tent that looks like a giant piece of cheese or that one that looks like a circus tent, you better get on it quickly, lest forever lose your chance.
Price for FieldCandy’s designer tents start at £395.
