Camping Tents. Published at Saturday, August 05th 2017, 11:54:11 AM by RickGrimes.
But if you can think back on days spent camping and realize that all or most of them were in clear, still weather, perhaps storm-ready performance does not have to be your first worry. M2C appears to be aiming the Qubes at recreational car campers and festival campers, so we do imagine it will have an audience of folks who are not worried about having an expedition-level tent built up to survive high-alpine colds and winds.For that type of customer, the Qube has a primary selling point that the average dome in your local camping store does not: its modular, interconnectable design.
The social campers over at M2C Innovation are back doing what they do: building modular tents that link up into full-blown campsite communities. The last time we checked in, they were focused on domes, but now they have moved on to Qubes. The new Qube tents are quick-setup blocks that offer enough height to stand up inside.Like Pods, these modular tents connect together with tunnels and create larger tent communities. They are also more affordable than M2Cs original tents and are proving quite popular on crowdfunding.
The center tent pole is strong steel and provides a handy grab point when standing and changing clothes. The tent is also sufficiently high that you can have a chair within the tent convenient for reading, putting on shoes, and so forth. The four plastic windows allow for a ready look at the outside world. Beneath them are airflow vents on the exterior of the tent, which can be slightly enhanced to scoop breezes by leaving one side of the flap zipped to the tent and unzipping the other side of the flap that faces a prevailing wind and tying off its line to one of the existing tent stakes. Though this description is somewhat wordy, creating four such wind scoops becomes intuitively obvious when setting up the tent, provided that the front of the tent faces into the prevailing wind. The proposed rigging requires no added effort since all of the lines are staked out anyway.
The Qube is as easy to pack away as it is to set up so you wont need to be an expert in origami to try and get it back into the bag when youre ready to come home. One of the major issues with standard tents is being woken up by the sun blaring through the tent wall when it comes up at 5 am so with the with Qube tent we have added a black lining to our material to block out the sunlight so you wont be woken by that early morning sun anymore.
M2C explains on its website that the main driver behind creating an all-new tent was feedback from consumers. A lot of people liked the idea of modular, interconnectable tents but did not like the Pod tent pricing, which starts at US$625 for the four-person model, as listed today.The Pod was created purely as a larger, more premium offering, so in attempting to bring price down, M2C created a whole new design, aiming the lower pricing and quick, simple set-up at a broader customer base.
The tents themselves have a floor size of nine feet by seven feet, with a center height of 66 inches. Setup time is really quick, normally 5 minutes at most. The tents have two large windows and a mesh roof. There is an attached rain fly that can be quickly rolled up to open up the mesh roof, providing great ventilation during the day and an awesome view at night. There are even a couple of storage pockets built into the tent itself. We cant stress this enough these tents do not work without the canopy, and the canopy is sold separately.
