This is such a sim­ple idea you won­der why it hadn’t been thought of be­fore. It’s a camp bed to which a tent top has been added. It’s very quick to set up and take down (pos­si­bly the fastest I’ve seen) and it’s re­mark­ably com­fort­able, though you do need to get in at the side, not the ends.

It sits 11in off the ground to pro­vide com­fort and pro­tec­tion from rocks and in­sects. Op­tional ex­tras in­clude mat­tresses and rain fly, and there are larger sizes. The only down­side is the bulk of the thing when it’s folded away. It’s an ex­cel­lent tent for a fast, un­ob­tru­sive camp when a larger tent would be overkill – and, of course, with the tent stashed away it can be a camp bed when you need one.

Prices and avail­abil­ity vary wildly across the world and the in­ter­net, so search for the best deal.

VERDICT: Sim­ple, quick, clever.
