Upgrade Your Camping Experience with Polarmond Sub-Zero Sleeping-Bag/Tent Hybrid

We all love camping and the outdoor fun that comes with it. But let’s face it, when it comes to pitching a tent, most would rather be putting some food on the fire or heading to the hiking trail.  Thankfully for camping enthusiasts tired of toying with their tents, a group of Swiss scientists has designed a modern sleeping bag/tent hybrid that can be set up in a matter of minutes.

The concept, developed by a startup called Polarmond, was inspired by spacesuits which use a technology called “sandwich construction”.  Each and every wall, including the floor, is lined with thermally insulated fabric.  The structure is heated by the occupant’s own body heat.  According to tests conducted in the freezing Swiss Alps, the tent/sleeping bag can maintain warmth even in temperatures as low as -22 F.

My idea of an “upgraded camping experience” is going from Holiday Inn to the Four Seasons!

I would be interested in these. BUT how is the structure supported when the ground is frozen ? Along the same lines…how about the homeless, what means are they to use for structural support in cemented areas ?

I just saw this 10/2/17 and could not find polarmond’s website anywhere, so why clutter up the web with useless info.. since it was supposed to be released in 2016?

Interested! In response to the guy asking about ground coverage, a thermarest would fit inside this structure. But, is it actually available and hpw much does it weigh?

Also, I’m wilderness therapy. If you need to test this, I’ll be a good resource.
