These wacky tent designs are not the way to scare off a bear, nor will they grant you better sleep. But they will definitely stand out in the crowd and cause some awareness.

Found on Fieldcandy, a design-led brand of tents, the crazy-looking accommodation units are promised to “keep you as dry in the rain and as snug in a gale as any conventional high performance tent.” From witty comments meant to make one laugh out loud (our personal favorite: “your mum’s in here”) to giant watermelon slices or huge open books, these designer’s tents are original canvases for various ideas guaranteed to make any camping escape fun.

The producers ensure us that the colorful tents are not just for entertainment, they are serious also. With an inner tent sheet that is 100% cotton, they have the ability of staying dry and not condense inside, like common tents do. High strength, low weight, precision engineered Aluminum poles, with environmentally friendly production is said to ensure a good land grip during bad weather. There are two downsides to these tent designs, from a traveler’s point of view:  the first is their steamy price, ranging from 449 to 660 GBP (which is a lot more than a good Hannah tent serving the same expedition purposes for example) and the second-their weight (7,4 kilos, including accessories).  Dimensions: 3.55m (L) x 1.7m (W) x 1.4m (H)  or 11’8″ (L) x 5’7″ (W) x 4’7″ (H).
