The Flexibility of a POD Tent
The Flexibility of a POD Tent
The ground-breaking interconnecting POD tent system, designed by M2C Innovation Ltd, is set to revolutionise camping this year with a uniquely flexible, communal approach to life under canvas.
Inside each POD tent can be customised to feature group and private sleeping cells while outside as many tents as desired can be connected with tunnels. The POD concept promises to transform camping holidays everywhere, as awkward communal living arrangements and freezing late night walks to friends’ tents are made a thing of the past.
There is an abundance of choices as standard with the modular camping system giving bags of freedom every time you embark on a camping trip. The POD Maxi is five metres in diameter and has a floor space large enough to sleep 8 adults in a communal space. Alternatively, customise the tent by adding a sleeping cell, to sleep four in the cosy sealed off area, and leaves half of the tent as a communal area to socialise. For larger groups, link together a POD mini tent, which is a smaller version of the maxi and can sleep up to four people comfortably. An inner sleeping cell can also be inserted into the POD mini, to effectively make the POD mini tent a bedroom, accessible from the maxi tent through a tunnel.
This amazing social camping experience has multiple possibilities, to suit groups of all sizes. Numerous tents can be joined by tent tunnels, creating separate areas to utilise for any purpose. Here are a few examples we have come up with so you get a good idea of just how useful this modular POD tent system can be.
A group of 10 friends at a summer festival:
Purchase a POD maxi as a central social area, then assemble 3 POD minis and connect each to the POD maxi tent. The POD minis can be used as bedrooms, and the POD maxi can be filled with chairs and shared equipment. Food and drinks along with bags or clothes that you don’t want to keep in the sleeping area can also be kept in the shared maxi tent. Finding pitching space at a festival can sometimes be cut-throat, so making sure your group’s tents are connected means nobody else can pitch in between your tents and ruin the group dynamic. As the British summer doesn’t always bring ideal weather, the POD maxi tent also serves as a great shelter when the rain starts to pour – who said the party has to stop when the wet weather arrives?
Family friends holidaying together at a campsite:
Again the POD maxi can be used as a social, central point, but with a sleeping cell attached for the adults to stay in. Connect a tunnel and a POD mini to serve as the children’s bedroom, which will make them feel independent. When it’s time for the kids to go to bed, the adults can stay up socialising in the maxi POD, then when sleep calls simply crawl inside the sleeping cell. The adults will know the children are safe sleeping a short distance away, and will wake up if the children leave the tent at any point during the night or in the morning.
As you can see, POD tents create an amazing new social outdoor experience, putting the fun back into camping one pod at a time. How will you arrange yours?
