(6 customer reviews)



POD Tent  is the revolutionary new concept in social camping offering a refreshing new approach to outside living. The system is designed to be completely modular so simply buy what you want when you want.

This outer POD is a huge 5 Mtrs ( 16.4 ft ) in diameter and 2.7 mtrs ( 8.85 ft )to the top and will sleep 8 people in a open communal living arrangement or for those who prefer some privacy then sub divide the the internal division.

Forget complicated colour coded or numbered poles the POD has 8 poles that are all the same size and shape and a clever 8 fingered central attachment making it easy to erect for any camping novice in fact 2 people can easily erect this tent within 20 – 25 minutes.

Why not have 2 or more POD’s and add the connecting tunnel to join the tents ? this will allow you to sleep in one and socialise in the other.

This is the perfect product if you are camping as a large group , each with your own POD’s all interconnected. Just imagine the fun you and the kids will have and the safety of knowing that your children are only a tunnel away while you socialise in the central POD.

*Pod’s are considered a Leisure tent, Nylon material is not suitable for permanent pitching & extended UV Exposure.

    At the Exosphere Academy, we require a lot of shipping of equipment, parts, electronics, etc. So when the senior fellow of the Mars Simulation told us she needed “the best tents in the world,” to simulate a structure on Mars, she told us they had to come from Podtents.

    We are not strangers to all the crazy laws, rules, etc that comes with international shipping. We ran into a few problems getting the tents to Brazil, but Jason was always just one message away. He helped us immensely during this process. From finding the best shipping and logistics price, to having patience with us as we figured everything out. He went above and beyond what we are used to dealing with when we ship internationally.

    As we grow our Mars Simulation course at the Academy, we will definitely be doing more business with Podtents. Not only because they have the best tents in the world (suitable for Mars Simulation missions) but because of their outstanding customer service and problem-solving mindset. Thanks so much to Jason and the Podtents team.

    Being 6 ft 3 i have always struggled in tents before i purchased my Pod and now finally i don’t need to constantly bend over to get around inside a tent. The space inside is amazing and there is none of the claustrophobic feeling i used to experience in other tents. Thanks Pod for making camping more accessible for us tall people.

    Pod Tents have been really great throughout the process. I run an international student organisation in Australia and there were a couple of tax/postage hurdles that I had questions about. Jason from Pod Tents was really great to work with and eased our concerns. The tents arrived a fortnight ago in time for our camping trip and they were a hit. The tents are massive, and given the cold we even managed to fit 14 people in one tent (we probably should have brought more blankets, but we compensated with spooning). Everyone’s pretty excited for our next event

    When looking for a simple solution to communal camping, I thought the decision would be hard. But the decision I took is the best one possible! We were looking for a system which would enable us all to have our own space, but not take forever to assemble. I first saw the POD tent system though a Facebook video, and thought I would inquire. I went on to buy 3 mini’s and 1 maxi we use the tents many times each year – and we love it!

    We have been using our three PODs for years now. They are so roomy. Once we had about 20 people in the large one eating lunch in the rain and it didn’t feel cramped. They always cause a stir and we are regularly taking people on tours. They are simple to get up and get down again. They are so good, that our friends who hire a caravan next to us while we camp, have decided they are going to buy one and attach onto ours. I LOVE our POD kingdom!

    The tent surface is awesome, and it’s really simple to install it, even for beginners in the art of camping like us. The SAV is pretty reactive too! Great service! Thank you, really!
