  2. I own a few acres of ocean view property in Costa Rica . I would love to hang tents in the rainforest ! Thanks for the inspiration 🌺🦋🌺

  3. While all of them were cool I'd pick the cocoon tree tent. Glamping in the treetops sounded comfortable and fun. Thanks everyone involved for another great video.

  4. Very good, informative video! Also, I really like the girl in the grey sweater at the end of the video!

  5. Thanks for doing tent episode. I really enjoyed it. Appreciate you did small, large and unique. I did not know about all the different types. The tree slung ones are cool. Trees not included.

  6. Sounds like we would paying money for tents so hollyweird actors can get tax deductions and tax shelters while promoting homeless people who refuse to work.

  7. I pick the ShiftPod2 as my favorite as it holds up against a strong wind and is very roomy for a moderately lower price than the other more expensive tents…

  8. Shiftpod2 for homeless people……. Costs only $1,300 I'm sure tons of homeless people will be buying them.

  9. I like #15 and #1. I like the shape, capacity and durability. Also like how #15 is helping the homeless.

  10. My favourites were the Shiftpod 2 and Weather Hyde because I like the focus on Warmth I don't know if I trust the sky tents though if I was camping in an area with dangerous ants (like Fireants) I might want them. But my Oztrail Odyssey Duo is still superior to a lot of the other standard tents shown.

  11. Why are so many mosquitoes alive, in the wild, where there are no people or mammals with blood for them to suck? And yet when you appear, suddenly, bamn! blood sucking mossies.

  12. I usually make comments about the individual products but for this video I'd have to give thumbs up for just about all of them. I was taken by the many off-the-ground models, very cool! The charity donation factor was 1st class also.

  13. I'm a big fan and have been watching your videos for a long time, and subscriber for almost the same. I'm afraid to say the editing on this video has not matched up to previous quality, the audio kept dropping out especially towards the end. so much that the end of some of the last few statements ( those about the bts team ) were cut off. The visual edits were choppy and the fades on the overlays were too fast or just unclear and distracting. Shorter inserts of the promo/info guys would be better and could then be inserted earlier in the count down list. But your content never fails, is always interesting and informative. Some content from a UK based POV ( European ) would been a nice addition. Keep it going guys your definitely in the top 10 for me.

  14. I live outdoors 365 days a year and would love to have a couple shelters I just watched on this channel 💯

  15. Any tent maker who claims their tent does not need to be anchored down has never been through a real storm.

  16. Personally, I cannot wait for the ridiculous hairy face trend to end. Full on 'Grisly Adam's' hairy necks and faces, that often have some sort of food or dribble in is totally unacceptable and hideous…….Stop it. Stop it now and go shave it off. Half a banana or chocolate sprinkles from a crispy cream donut is not a good look.

  17. 300€ for hammock with rainfly …ROFL. i'll stick to my cheap-ish tent that has served me well for last decade, and hammock when going ultralite.doesnt cost fraction of what half of those "tents" costs…

  18. Great tents ! Living day to day is tough enough so saving money to buy even the least expensive of these isn't even possible! They are nice though!! Thanks!!

  19. I'm homeless and never had tent last more than two years, therefore I squaut in abandoned buildings , but some of these look pretty sweet. Thanx for vid !

  20. When I was a kid, we used to scrounge the biggest cardboard boxes we could find and we made shelters out of them. We were lucky, sort of, the powers that be ripped down an entire farm, (our playground), and constructed a giant retail store, so we found lots of cardboard boxes in the garbage, behind the store… LARGE cardboard boxes. That was back in the 60s. Now you would NEVER find any such thing!

  21. Did I miss something or is that pretty green traditional tent on the cover screen not included in the 15 ? I would like to know who makes it.

  22. Those earlier mini shelters were reminiscent of the concentration and gulag camps. Let’s pray they are only used for universally benevolent purposes.
    Whilst the later tents showed phenomenal advances in materials and imagination in getting out into the great outdoors – respect humanity.
