From the fastest self-inflating mattress ever made, to a whole new line of luxurious car-camping tents, we’re pulling out all the stops for 2017. There’s an all-inclusive hammock camping solution, the perfect festival chair and much more—all ready and raring to prove that we offer everything you need to camp in style and comfort.
For a little stoke to get you fired up, here’s the low-down on a few of our favorite new 2017 products.
Trail King SV Mattress $129.95 USD
The fastest self-inflating mattress ever made. Period. By combining the two cutting-edge, in-house technologies of the SpeedValve and our alternating channels of air and foam called AirFrame Construction, the Trail King SV literally inflates before your eyes. The pad’s “wow factor” has already turned heads, in fact, and was awarded the Gold OutDoor Industry Award last month at the 2016 OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. BOOM!
Questar HD Down Sleeping Bag $249.95 USD
This is the feature-packed down bag you’ve always wanted, now available at a value. We’ve stuffed this cozy cocoon with water-resistant 650 Fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down, and included all the comfort-enhancing trademarks Therm-a-Rest bags are known for, like our SynergyLink Connectors that integrate it with your mattress and ThermaCapture Seams that trap your radiant body heat. If you’re in need of three-season comfort, this puppy is the ticket.
Slacker Hammock House $199.95 USD
A Hammock House is two things: the historic abode of notorious pirate Edward Teach (aka Blackbeard), and … drumroll … our new all-in-one backcountry-ready hammock shelter. With an integrated rainfly and bug shelter, the Slacker Hammock House comes prepared for any free-swinging adventure, whether you’re just chilling in the backyard or thru-hiking on your favorite trail.
Slacker Hammock Pad $119.95
Ever slept in a hammock? Ever thought to yourself, gosh, it would be nice to have a pad that gave me some cushion, insulation and kept the hammock from scrunching up my shoulders? Your wish has now been granted, hammockers. The new Slacker Hammock Pad is specifically designed to nestle inside your hammock, give you some cushy foam and keep your backside warm with its AirFrame Construction (alternating channels of air and foam). The thoughtful design even extends to the pad’s stuff-sack, which can be turned inside out, connected to the mattress via its integrated adjustable strap, and used as a knee-bolster or pillow when stuffed with a jacket or blanket.
Uno Chair $89.95 USD
This is the low-profile chair you want for summer music festivals or weekend car-camping excursions. Packing into its own disc-shaped base, this comfy seat slips into a backpack with ease and sets up at just the right height for festival regulations. Added bonus? You can even convert the Uno into a convenient little camping side-table.
Tranquility Tents –4-Person $479.95—6-Person $599.95 USD
Therm-a-Rest has just busted out a whole new line of car camping tents. What??? That’s right. Aiming to solve three major problems we’ve grown tired of in our 45 years of camping experience, we’ve created the Tranquility series. What problems you ask? Our new tents make rainfly management easier, entry and exit a breeze and, yes, the inevitable set-up and take-down nearly effortless.
We’ll break it down for you:
The rainfly attaches directly to the tent body and doesn’t require any stakes. It can even be flipped to one side for stargazing and greater ventilation.
The integrated vestibules are also stake-less and make entering and exiting the tent easy. There are storage pockets, corner shoe mats and utility loops to hang wet jackets. Basically these vestibules are like little mud-rooms for your tent, storing your gear and making tent-life nice and tidy.
Both tents were designed so that set-up can be done by just one person. Yes, even the 6 person. Thoughtful touchpoints such as the 5-hub structure of the poles just makes things simple.
Available in a compact 4-person size, or a spacious 6-person, the Tranquilities are 100% freestanding thanks to their completely integrated vestibules (even with the rainfly attached) and incorporate unique features such as an arch design and pass-through ports for solar/electronic connectivity. The whole shelter packs neatly into a backpack stuff-sack that’s easily carried to your camping destination.
Arrowspace Shelter $299.95 USD
After diving head-first into the world of tents, we decided to keep the ideas and cool products flowing so we designed the Arrowspace. This freestanding, arched shelter is adjustable in height and can easily fit over a picnic bench for an outdoor gathering, or it can take a wide, low stance to accommodate more people.
Perhaps the coolest thing about the Arrowspace, however, is that it can connect to the vestibule of the Tranquility 6 Tent to create the ultimate basecamp. Check it out:
These products will be available on our new website later this month. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a holler.
See you out there!
