BOULDER, Colo. – The outdoor industry is demanding gear that is as versatile and durable as it is well-designed – and Flying Tent is delivering the goods. Announcing their launch on the U.S. market, Flying Tent is poised to make an impression as the world’s first all-in-one floating tent, bivy tent, hammock and rain poncho.

The Austrian company, which received a 2017 ISPO BRANDNEW award for its innovative design, has named Boulder-based Canaima Outdoors as their exclusive U.S. distributor.

“The support we’ve had for the Flying Tent has been unreal. We are thrilled to partner with Canaima, a team with such a long history in distributing high-quality outdoor brands like the Slackline Industries, TreePod, Hi-Tec, Petzl and Merrell,” said Joachim Leitgeb, co-founder and product development manager at Flying Tent.

A three-season shelter, the Flying Tent can be set up between two trees as a floating tent and hammock, or as a bivy tent on the ground. It features a removable mosquito net, a cleverly engineered ventilation system and a rip-stop rain-fly. The hammock doubles as an adjustable rain poncho.

In addition to being lightweight, compact and conveniently stored in its own backpack, the Flying Tent sets up in a few seconds – faster than any product on the market.

“It’s kind of like a parachute – if it’s packed right, it almost sets itself up,” said Leitgeb.

Flying Tent launched on Kickstarter in 2016 with a modest financial target of $20,000, and a stretch goal of $200,000. The campaign later proved to be the most successful in the hammock tent category with more than $500,000 in investment from backers and almost 4,000 pre-orders. As part of Flying Tent’s environmental vision, for each pre-order the company promised to plant two trees.

The Flying Tent ($399 MSRP) is available now as a reliable companion for any outdoor adventure – camping, hiking, fishing or even lounging in the back yard.
