FieldCandy Custom Design Tents

FieldCandy

The ‘design-led’ tents from FieldCandy inject color, creativity, and fun into the camping experience by taking the standard tent design and giving each one a fun story to tell.

Don’t let the designs fool you though; these are also high performance tents, made to keep you dry in the rain, warm in the cold, and comfortable in the wind. Plus, the cotton inner tent doesn’t attract condensation the way that most modern tents do.

I’d imagine the one downside is that they don’t look quite as picture-perfect when you pitch one at your local camping spot as they do on the website, but even if it’s just good for a few good laughs every time you set it up, I’d say that’s reason enough to give FieldCandy a try.
