When it comes to practicality, Mavericks, the inflatable expedition tent by Heimplanet, might be at the very top of the industry’s offer. In all honesty, this was expected having in mind two things: first of all, it comes from the company responsible for the astonishing Cave Tent, and secondly, it was designed to withstand the perils of the Red Bull Storm Chase Event. And it performed flawlessly.
Mavericks is capable of withstanding winds of 180km/h. This is why it is perfect for extreme expeditions, but this is not the only reason. It is also capable of accommodating up to 10 people AND their equipment comfortably with inner diameter of 13ft 5” and ground area of 142 square feet. Internal height should be enough for most people to stand straight since it reaches almost 6.6 feet. Outer material is extra strong and durable High Tenacity Polyester which ensures outstanding sturdiness, while the inside is made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane which, along with the amazing chamber system, provides protection from extreme temperatures.
With loads of additional tent-related perks such as numerous windows, doors, ventilation systems, and Multi Chamber Safety System, there is one more reason why Mavericks is one of the best tents available today and why even the laymen will love it – there is no assembly of parts.
For real, none. You don’t need to be a pro to use this pro-oriented tent. A complete beginner can pitch the tent by himself in just 10 minutes. All you need to do is roll it out and inflate the air frame which concurrently sets up the tent skin. Two people with two pumps can set up the tent in half as much time.
