Very cool but definitely not for me. I'm terrified of heights. Those rock-climbing tents are insane. I wouldn't trust the hardware (think "Cliffhanger")

Can't build a fire outside the thing, so it is designed for extremely fair weathered camping.


I disagree, build one under you! Think this:

If the tent's a rocking, don't come knocking.

Just think how much taller you'd be if you weren't.

I just had my company picnic in Cunningham park in Queens. They wouldn't let me put a piece of caution tape around a tree to rope off a cooking area in an attempt to keep children and our developmentally disabled clients away from hot grills. They valued the tree's safety over people. Imagine what they would think of something like this. I'm surprised there is no disclaimer on the manufacturers web site saying they are not legal for sale in CA, NY, MA, CT, etc. Very cool product though.

smart aleck :) My parents lived in a 9th floor condo years back and I wouldn't go out on the balcony. No way. I enjoyed the view from the doorway. I'm a weirdo, I know.

Depends on the park. Using flat webbing does zero damage to the trees as it disburses the weight evenly over a larger area. Using rope or string can do some damage to trees depending on the species. Looks like the product uses webbing. There's no restrictions on hanging in NY along the Appalachian Trail. I've hung my hammock in all of NY, CT and half of Mass along the trail. And most of Harriman State Park (multiple trips on the same trail too.... love West Mountain Shelter view and the views from Black Mountain)

If I was ever inclined to sleep outside in the woods I would consider it.

So what are the specs on these things? How much weight can they hold?

First time a NY'er eff's up his sheep shank and drops 12' in the middle of the night they will own that company. I know there is inherent risk in most things but the liability and the Eco nazi's demanding no one hang from mother earths glorious Hickory or Elms will kill this venture quickly (sadly).
My bladder would never sign off on it either, too many overnight trips to the can for this old man.
