POD Tents at Glastonbury 2014
If you were at the Glastonbury Festival in 2014 then you may very well of seen a POD Maxi tent as one of the competition winners was lucky enough to borrow a POD Maxi for the period of the festival . The thoughts of some of the group of 6 girls are below :
POD Tent Maxi set up video
We have just finalised the POD Tent Maxi set up video for the 2014 model , We hope this step by step guide will help you in setting the POD tent Maxi the first time as from there on in its so easy you won’t need a video or instructions. The whole POD concept has been designed around ease of set up so the Maxi has 8 poles all the same length ( no complicated colour coding ) ,
POD Tents Bournemouth 7’s
Earlier in the year we ran a facebook competition which allowed people to borrow our tents for as many UK festivals as we could. As a result 13 welsh dodge ballers won the competition and used 2 POD Maxi tents to sleep and socialise in, which in the end was a godsend as the rain meant they spent a lot of time inside the POD’s .
POD Tents in Switzerland
POD recently supplied a Swiss company who has 27 camp sites in Switzerland with one POD Maxi and three POD Mini tents that they plan to pre pitch and hire out to clients at their Solothurn site . TCS Camping www.tcs-camping.ch/solothurn plan on trialing the POD’s on this initial camp site with the potential to expand the POD’s to their other sites throughout Switzerland in 2015.
POD Maxi Tent – Time lapse set up video – We had some spare time and the end of photo shoot so we thought we would have a little bit of fun and do a time lapsed set up of a POD Maxi tent. Normally a POD Maxi takes 2 people 15-20 minutes to fully set up (this includes pegging out guy ropes) and this video shows it condensed down into under a minute.
Pod Tents walk through video – Now the weather has finally changed we managed to get out in the sunshine and pitch up a POD Maxi and a POD Mini together to give you an idea of how big they are in real life . People always comment on the height of the Maxi and say that it is much bigger in real life than in the images which got us think about how we could show you the size of the POD’s without you seeing the physical product. We decided to commission this brief walk through video which shows you both the POD Maxi on its own and being used as a purely social space and then a POD Maxi connected to a POD Mini , In the example we have also added the internal sleeping section into the POD Maxi to also give you an idea of its scale and size.
Tips for a Stress Free Camping Holiday – POD Tents
Everyone here at POD tents thinks that camping trips are the ultimate choice in holidays and short breaks, however we know they can be slightly more stressful than other holidays. Staying in hotels, villas or holiday parks can be an easier option, and very relaxing and enjoyable, but it lacks a lot of the fun and adventure involved in a UK camping holiday. The ‘staycation’ is on the rise, as people choose to get back to nature and explore their home soil rather than splash out on travelling abroad.
POD Tents launch their 2014 product brochure for customers to view below and POD_2014_brochure_PDF_Format to download. The brochure gives details behind the thinking of POD and how we are trying to put the fun back into camping for a new generation. Individual product specifications , sizing and dimensions are also covered along with images of some possible POD configurations but we will leave it up to you how you want to POD your space..
