  • What- This is a Ultra light 4 season tent/shelter that cane be used as a camping, bushcrafting, survival situation, that also has the ability to adapt to the season.
  • Color options- coyote, green or high visible orange
  • Highlights and functions- Very light weight if made from the right materials. No poles needed for set up only min 4 pegs and two tree's. With a inter changeable front wall allows this to be a multi season tent/shelter. The UV wall allows campfire UV to pass through the wall and be trapped and directed down onto you as you sleep in cold weather months. The solid wall and bug screen walls allow for summer time spring and fall, or go with out any wall for an opened face shelter. Also the inner roof ceiling would have mylar reflective layer. this reflects the heat but also help reflect light when used as just a tent.
  • Specific use & purpose- Used for camping,bushcrafting ultra light weight back packing and as a survival shelter. If made using high visible orange material could be marketed as a survival emergency shelter. Each wall could be sold as an accessory or the entire sold as a 4 season bundle.
  • How were you inspired- The reflective survival blanket trick is known through out the bushcraft and survival community but to my knowledge no one has produced a re usable tent using these fundamentals

What an amazing idea!
I just talked with our designer @Nick, who is in charge of the survival gear. He said it's awesome and will consider about to make one. you provided the comprehensive design and we may change some to make it more reasonable. If your idea is accepted by us, we will make a sample in this two month!

If you have any other details for this design, plz feel free to tell us! :oops:(y)

BTW. we really like this idea. so it‘s very likely to realize it

Good idea, it would be easy enough to keep it upright with two vertical poles you can cut on site and fix the tent with two ancor lines at each pole. All it will need is some reinforced “pocket” at each corner to stick the “poles” in or a hole to stick it through...either way would work.

One thought I did have with out the floor it could be made to be able to turn inside out maybe an excellent shelter in hot sunny conditions, the reflective surface would be on the outside directing sunlight away making it cooler....
We will design the replaceable cover with reflective layer insider and you can turn it on its back so it can reflect the sun light and keep the tent cool.

About the U.V. wall, we don't think it will work. Heat transfer of fire basically have two ways:
1. infrared ray;
2. through air (main way);
If we use UV wall cover, it will weaken the second way. so we will not do the UV wall first.

When I get a sample this is something I can test (with a clear sheet of plastic), and I may have used the wrong ref towards the kind of heat U.V vs. I.R my apologies, Think about how a green house works plastic roof and walls allows the strongest rays through but traps the heat, the wall works on the same concepts, would be more than happy to test the theory and provide video proof of success or failure.

This would be an excellent shelter! I currently have a tarp that has the “wings” on the side and use another tarp with reflective material on the wall and floor. Removable bug screen and other options would make this an all season shelter. I’ve attached a pic of the setup that I had last fall.

I'm glad to hear you like the concept, thanks for sharing your setup and the support!(y)

I’m all for this idea!
A suggestion on what I see on your pic Dean:
The very edge of the angled “roof” - how about folding the last 30cm or so horizontal so it makes a little flat roof? This will allow you a little more coverage against rain or snow, will lower the overall profile and it would change the angle at which warmth is returned back to you when you sleep.
(This flat surface could also be handy to stow stuff or to catch rainwater to fill your canteen.)
