As the summer camping season gets underway there's one thing no one looks forward to about spending a weekend in a field, and that's having to carry, set up and take down your al fresco sleeping quarters. While modern tents are undoubtedly a lot lighter than they used to be, having to lug a big set of poles around is always going to make the job heavier and bulkier than you'd like. But now, in a complete shake-up of every tent that has ever come before it, German company Heimplanet has ditched the poles entirely and developed a rigid tent design using nothing but inflated air.

The three high-performance models - named The Wedge, The Cave and Mavericks - have been fully tested to withstand wind speeds of up to 170 km/h and rainfall of anywhere between 2,000 and 5,000 mm, depending on the tent. Each one erects using nothing more than a simple, two-way pump, similar to one you might use for a bicycle or a soccer ball, and can be set up and taken down in minutes - ideal if you're cold and up a mountain, or just lazy and at a festival. For more info on the exact specifications of each tent model, or to make an order, visit Heimplanet's official website.
