POD Elite range launched exclusively on Kickstarter
A revolutionary tent manufacturer has unveiled exciting plans to launch an upgraded version of its wildly popular flagship model. The all new POD Elite range represents a new generation of social camping and is set to be smarter, lighter and faster to erect than its forerunner. To fund the project, POD is launching a whirlwind Kickstarter campaign during the month of November.
POD Tents spotted throughout Summer 2014
Customers have been sending in their images to us of their POD’s throughout the summer so we though we would share a selection of the best ones with you. The POD Maxi connected to 3 POD Mini’s seems to be the most popular choice with the central POD Maxi acting as the central social area for the group.
POD Tents at Blissfields
If you were at the Blissfields Festival 2014 in England you might just of seen a POD Maxi and 3 x POD Mini’s all connected together to create a stunning set up of interconnected tents. Our customer used the POD Maxi as their central socialising area retiring away to the connected POD Minis at night to use as the bedrooms. Below are the comments from the customer:
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.
