QUBE TENT – The Ultimate Connectable Pop-Up Tent in 2018!

Why this tent named Qube?

Qube Tent provides a quick pitch time that less than 2 minutes, out of the bag to fully started and ready to go, meaning that you will have that drink in your hand faster than ever before.

Unlike other fast pop-up tents like many other tents in the world of camping, you can resist all our variations of person 2 up to person 4 in order to no longer bend or do the dying fish as you try and get your jeans!

The Qube Tent is as easy to set up as it is necessary to configure so you do not need to be an origami expert to try to put it back in your pocket when you are ready to go home.

One of the main problems with the standard tents is awakened by the explosion of the sun by the tent wall when it arrives at 5 o’clock in the morning, so with the Cube Tent (Qube Tent), we have added a black liner to our material to block the sunlight so that you I will not wake up this morning.

 

Specifications

Our extensive ventilation system allows for a cool inside environment.

The Qube Tent material is PU coated and is rated with a hydrostatic head rating of 4000, which means that you maintain moderate and mild rain conditions and are treated according to CPAI84 standards.

A 300D Cotton Oxford resistant material means that this tent is strong and stable.

A detachable floor panel means you have extra comfort under your feet and makes the tent easier to clean when you pack it.

The key of the Cube Tent is that they are easy to set up and offer you an excellent place inside, as well as we a few extras that will make this tent in a class of its own.

They set up untraditionally via internal poles that unfold and pop the square shelter into shape.

Set one up, and then an adjacent Qube can connect. They fit together at the corners. Inside, campers can walk between the rooms.

The Qube Tents are quick-pitch tents that can be set up in under 2 minutes (without disappointing your wife).  The flexible fibreglass poles are integrated so you’re not stuck struggling in the rain to figure which one goes where. And The Qube(Cube) Tent is 7-feet tall, so unless you’re related to Manute Bol you shouldn’t have any problem standing in, or walking between them.

Connect with friends


Unlike other tents, you can connect a Qube Tent to another Cube Tent in any size so that the person 4 connects a person of 2 people or 3 to the universal tunnel, which means that you can create your own configuration tents from each other tents. On each Qube Tent, you can join at every corner, which means that the possibilities for joining are endless.

Bonus: they attach to one another via a series of universal connector tunnels. Simply take it out of the carrying case and unfold.

Imagine the fun that your group needs to connect to a festival that guarantees you a party area, you can use a Qube just to pull it when the weather gets bad.

How to deal with the wind?

The tents were tested on a Beaufort 3-4 scale that reached winds of up to 20 MPH, are not a flat surface and are actually 4 triangular shapes that meet at a point on the shrinkage area. Once it connects to the cables and is powered on, the surface of the tent is relatively strong.

Will a tunnel connect all variations?

Yes, the single tunnel is universal and will connect all size variations

Are they Water resistant?

Our tents have a PU coated material which has a Hydrostatic Head rating of 4000 and we have fully taped seems so yes our tents are water resistant

Why aren’t you shipping to my location?

We initially launched the campaign in regions where we have an established supply chains so that we can deliver on time. If your location is not listed it is because the only way to ship it to you is as a single part shipment and on the tent this works out very expensive making the total value of tent + delivery uneconomical.

Can I change my order?

Yes, you can change your order, but the only way to do this on Indiegogo is to cancel the pledge you made and replace it with a new pledge.

Can I cancel or return my item?

Once the campaign is over, you can no longer cancel your order and, as you support a crowd financing campaign, you return to this project on the understanding that items can not be returned.

What if I do not see a package that includes the items I want?

If you do not see what you want, please contact us and we can offer you a commitment to include.

Best sleeping bag: The best sleeping bags from $30

The right sleeping bag should offer the perfect blend of cosiness and warmth for a good night’s sleep. Here’s our pick of the best.

Whether you want a sleeping bag for backpacking in the Himalayas or for rather tamer caravan trips in the UK, you’ll need to find the right one to ensure a decent night’s kip. Perhaps you only need one for occasional use at this year’s festivals – or maybe you want a stand-out double one to share with your significant other in the great outdoors.

Should you buy down or synthetic? Right or left hand zip? Rectangular or mummy shape? And then there’s the price tag, which can range from just a few quid up to over a grand. Whatever your needs, we’ve got it covered – not only in terms of which features to look out for, but our top recommendations.

How to buy the best sleeping bag for you

How do I choose the right season and temperature ratings?
To help quickly compare sleeping bags, they are roughly classified by season ratings one to four. Season one bags are made for summer camping, when the weather is mild, as well as for indoor use. Season two bags are ideal for late spring to early autumn temperatures. Season three bags are made for autumn and winter weather but not frost. And season four bags are designed to keep you toasty on cold, frosty and even snowy winter nights.

Meanwhile, temperature ratings are split into the ‘comfort’ rating and the ‘extreme’ temperature. The former is the optimum temperature at which you’ll feel warm and comfortable – meaning that if the bag is used in temperatures below that rating, you’ll probably get cold. The ‘extreme’ temperature rating (on more technical bags) refers to survival conditions – in other words, the limit at which the bag will keep you alive without frostbite and suchlike.

But don’t just think about the air temperature. Also consider how much you personally feel the cold, what clothing you intend to sleep in and what will be underneath you. In particular, remember the inner bag – not only does it add about half a season to the rating (too hot in summer? simply use the inner bag on its own), but it also keeps your sleeping bag clean and easier to wash, thereby increasing your bag’s lifespan and hygiene. If in doubt, go for a warmer sleeping bag than you think you’ll need – and that goes particularly for women, who tend to feel the cold more than men.

What about size, weight and shape?
If you’re only ever going to transport your sleeping bag in the spacious boot of your 4X4, you may not mind if your sleeping bag is on the bulkier, heavier side. But if you’ve got to backpack around the mountains with it, a tiny, lightweight option may be more tempting. In this case, be sure to check the packed size and weight.

In terms of shape, traditional sleeping bags are rectangular, with a zip that goes round two sides. The benefits of these are that they’re spacious and can be opened up to use as a blanket. But on the downside they don’t tend to retain the heat all that well – meaning that they’re best suited to caravanning, summer camping and indoor use, while mummy-shaped ones are better for more serious camping and people who feel the cold. Mummy-shaped ones also tend to weigh less.

How about the materials?
Down is the best filling for warmth-to-weight ratio, heat retention and temperature range – meaning that you can use it in both warm and cold conditions. Sleeping bags made from down also tend to last longer and are easier to pack up in small bags.

While synthetically insulated sleeping bags are usually heavier and bulkier, they are generally better at keeping you warmer when it’s wet or humid – as well as drying out quicker – and they are easier to clean and generally a good deal cheaper. And for people who are allergic to down, synthetic will be their only choice.

What do I need to consider about the zip?
Is the zip in the most practical place and does it work smoothly without sticking? Do you want it to be left or right hand opening (if you’re right handed, choose a left-hand bag and vice versa – and if you’re buying two that may need to connect together, buy one of each)? Do you need a two-way zip (good for easy opening when you need ventilation)? And do you want the zip to be full-length or only go half-way? Some bags have an insulated zip baffle behind the zip, which will stop the cold getting in, while others have a zip cover to stop it coming undone while you’re asleep.

The best sleeping bags to buy

1. Snugpak Softie 9: The best all-round sleeping bag

This is the most versatile sleeping bag – that doesn’t cost a bomb – which we have come across. While officially three-season, you can easily transform it into a four-season one by adding a Snugpak liner (available separately) and you can also make it bigger by buying Snugpak expander panels. It’s got a reinforced foot that means you can sleep with your boots on – good for nights when you need to be on guard or get up at a moment’s notice. The hood with drawstring works wonders for warmth and Snugpak throws in a free pillow (only with the lime green version though) if the hood doesn’t suffice for supporting your head. We were also impressed with the quality of the stitching – a problem with many sleeping bags at this price.

Key specs – Type: 3 season; Comfort temperature: -5°c; Extreme temperature: -10°c; Filling: 100% polyester; Weight: 1.5kg; Pack size: 19 x 21cm; Warranty: 1 year

2. Urban Escape Mummy Sleeping Bag: The best sleeping bag for festivals

If you want a no-frills, budget sleeping bag for under £15 that won’t fall to pieces after just one summer and will keep you cosy but not clammy, then this gets a big thumbs up from us. Unlike many in this price range, it’s double layered with decent stitching and the hood (which you can tighten using the drawstring) will help keep you warm, as well as adding some cushioning under your head. The internal security pocket is a nifty feature that will keep your valuables safe – a boon at festivals – and the zip isn’t prone to snagging. But give yourself a bit of time to fit it back in the bag after use, and don’t expect it to be much cop on very cold nights.

Key specs – Type: 2-3 Season; Comfort temperature: Not stated; Filling: 60% siliconized hollowfibre filling, 40% monofibre filling; Weight: 1.7kg; Pack size: Not stated, Sleeping size: 230 x 80cm; Warranty: 1 year

3. Rab Neutrino 800: The best sleeping bag for serious backpacking

This is the daddy of all sleeping bags, in our opinion – but with this price-tag, you’ll have to be a seasoned traveller to even think about buying it. Remarkably lightweight, given the warmth it brings on the coldest of nights (we’re talking -20° C), the goose down filling is also nice and lofty – an extremely welcome feature at the end of hard day’s walking. The zips glide like a knife through butter, never sticking, and we also like the internal collar at the base of the hood and hood draw cord – both handy for extra warmth when required. Whether you’re climbing mountains or trekking through the Rockies, you can say goodbye to cold spots at night and hello to a feeling of duvet-like snugness that will leave you fresh as a daisy the following morning, when you can also compress your bag with notable ease. Oh and the Polygiene odour control treatment works a treat too – for which anyone sharing your tent may be particularly grateful.

Key specs – Type: 4 season; Extreme temperature: -20° C; Filling: 800FP European Goose Down / Rab® fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic Down; Weight: 1.22kg; Pack size: 24 x 33cm; Warranty: Lifetime

4. Outwell Cardinal Double: The best double sleeping bag

In days gone by, a double sleeping bag usually meant zipping together two single ones, often fumbling about in the dark cursing the snagging zips that would never seem to marry up. Today, there’s all manner of genuinely double options that feel almost as roomy as your double duvet back at home. This one will set you back a bit more than many, but it even feels like a duvet, thanks to the soft-touch polyester microfibre shell with polycotton lining, lofty filling and zip-less front entry point with duvet cover. We also love the built-in pillows and foot zip in case you get hot and sticky on warmer nights. And while we were dreading trying to fit so much fabric into the compression bag, we found it surprisingly easy.

Key specs – Type: 3 season; Comfort temperature: 7℃; Extreme temperature: -12℃; Filling: Isofill Premium; Weight: 4.6kg; Pack size: 52 x 52 x 26cm; Warranty: 2 years

5. Robens Pamir 250: The best lightweight sleeping bag

You’ll hardly know you’re even carrying this around, thanks to it being ultralight and extremely compressed when in its storage sack. As such, it’s a fabulous sleeping bag for fast action summer outdoor adventures, without compromising on quality. Indeed, it boasts a soft, light and strong shell, along with nylon taffeta lining for comfort and a luxurious duck down filling – as well as full-length insulated zip baffle for extra warmth. Features that help keep it light include the auto-lock half-way centre zip (which still allows easy access) and tapered profile down in the leg area (which also helps improve insulation). And although the sleeping bag itself is less efficient in wet weather, the roll-top carry bag will protect the down in transit. It should last you a very long time too.

Key specs – Type: 1-2 season; Comfort temperature: 11℃; Extreme temperature: -6℃; Filling: 90% down, 10% feathers (700FP); Weight: 590g; Pack size: 30 x 14cm; Warranty: 2 years

8 tips for Colorado cold-weather camping in this winter

Finally, you can throw a pine cone on a Colorado trail without touching five other hikers.

As tourism increases and the population of northern Colorado increases, it sometimes seems that the best way to escape the outdoor crowds is to wait for the cold to come.

In addition, these mountain panoramas look quite spectacular at this time of year.

However, hiking and camping in the cold is not without its dangers. Here are some tips from my own experience and from several outdoor recruiters to consider for your next cold outdoor adventure:

1. Dress well.

Say yes to diapers, not cotton. You will need a warm base coat, such as a thermal or long sleeve shirt, a comfortable middle layer such as a fleece or jacket, and a waterproof outer layer. All these layers keep you warm and allow you to correct your mistakes if the temperature increases.

Do not forget a hat, warm socks, something to cover your neck and gloves / mittens. Bring a pair of extra socks and gloves, even if you think you do not need them. It is also a good idea to pack plastic zippered bags or grocery bags to wrap your feet in case of emergencies with wet shoes.

Vaseline can be removed in skin exposure tips to prevent gales and freezing.

2. Plan ahead and plan for the worst.

Adopt an apocalyptic mentality while preparing your trip. Suppose it will be colder, windier and wetter than expected. Suppose you are hungrier and thirsty than expected.

See some different weather forecasts for the area in case the forecasts vary. And for the good of all that winter, tell him where he is going and when he plans to return, even if he is planning a quick trip. This is not the time to go to all the “mysterious explorers” to their loved ones.

Better yet, bring a friend (prepared) too.

3. Prepare your camp.

First light your fire, as it may take longer than expected and you do not want to work in a fire in the dark.

Then place your tent You should place your tent for maximum exposure to the sun and minimal exposure to the wind. You can check predictions of the prevailing wind direction and hang a tarp to protect yourself from the worst.

Pack all the snow under your tent by stepping on it with your boots or snowshoes for a uniform surface.

4. Leave early.

Now that summer time is over, consider the first sunsets and plan accordingly. Check the time of sunrise and sunset so you can absorb as much sun as possible.

5. Be careful with electronics.

Lithium-ion batteries work better than other types in cold weather, but any battery will empty faster when it is cold. Prepare yourself with extra batteries and keep your batteries and electronic products warm by bringing them close to your body.

6. Sleep intelligently.

Continuing the theme “Prepare for the worst”, bring a sleeping bag classified for cooler temperatures than expected. Especially for winter camping, pack a carpet with an R value (an insulation measure) of 3.5 or more.

Eat a snack before going to bed, because the digestive process will generate body heat.

And if your full bladder wakes you up in the dark of night, get out of bed and relax. Keep it in the heat of the body (and make your night miserable).

7. Have a pull.

Wear winter hiking boots with good traction and bring sticks for extra support. If you are in a place with snow or ice, consider packing a traction device to be able to walk safely. Three options are microspikes, crampons and rackets, and your best bet will depend on the conditions of the area. Whatever you bring, avoid using them throughout the trek to save energy.

8. Do not forget the basics.

You know the exercise: sunscreen, water, snacks, first aid kit, heaters or feet, a lighthouse, a map of the area and any other essential element that your friends in the open air will swear. Make a list and double-check it.

3 most popular tips for camping with your Adventure Kings Big Daddy Swag

3 most popular tips for camping with your Adventure Kings Big Daddy Swag! - image swag on https://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/news

Here are 3 of our top tips for making one of the famous Big Daddy Swags even more comfortable than they already are.

First, put your hands on one of the Adventure Kings inflatable air mattresses.

With a huge thickness of 100 mm, it is twice as thick as the original 50 mm mattress of your Big Daddy booty and 30% thicker than the mattress of a Big Daddy Deluxe. People like these mattresses because they are perfect, they make the camp more comfortable and they are as comfortable to use at home as an extra bed. It is an accessory that will use much more than you think. In the cold, a thicker mattress (especially an inflatable foam core like this one) will also add heaps of insulation, which means you’ll have less chills at 2 o’clock in the morning than cold earth stealing the heat from your body.

Second, we recommend having a good sleeping bag in your hands.

Of course, you can get away with your house, but a good sleeping bag like the Premium Kings sleeping bag will take your level of comfort one step further. Easily traps the heat of your body and keeps it warm. The hood and zipper give you the most comfortable sleep at night, even when it’s very cold, or with the removable flannel lining, you can cool it down to camp during the summer without having to take off one leg! As an added bonus when you get sleeping bags of 2 kings (left and right handed), they can be joined together to form a larger double-sized sleeping bag, perfect for couples and small families who share the space for massive sleeping. in a Kings Big Daddy Swag.

Finally, do not forget to season your swag.

This is a simple procedure required in most canvas products and in the process, even those that come pre-seasoned like Big Daddy.

All you need to do to season your Big Daddy is to put it in the garden, remove the mattress and hit it with the garden hose or with a bucket of water. Your goal is to soak the material of the canvas and the threads in the seam, making sure to focus your attention on getting the wet canvas. This simple process inflates the thread into the seam holes and tightens all seams. Let it dry completely, then turn over the mattress, pack it and you’ll be ready for your next camping trip!

Following these tips, you will get the best night’s sleep you have had in the camp, rain or shine, and make sure your trip is as planned, relaxing and hassle-free.
