Heimplanet Backdoor Inflatable Tent

Technology is part of every product and aspect of our lives. It has even changed how we go camping. The case in point is that the tents made by Heimplanet. I recently purchased their Backdoor tent model to try out these inflatable, pole-less tents, which are so different from those that my family used when we would go on summer camping trips.

About the Backdoor Tent

The Backdoor is a four-person inflatable tent. It has a ventilation system and an inner tent with two layout options, making it suitable for summer and winter camping.

The biggest difference is that this tent moves away from the pole and canvas style tents that have dominated nearly the whole history of the tent. This pole doesn’t require hard poles that are often difficult to work with. I remember how it took hours just to get the tents set up. Heimplanet’s tent sets up so quickly because it uses inflatable support pillars that still give it support and form but without the hassle.

The airframe for this tent is made of recycled material while the inner layer consists of flexible thermoplastic polyurethane and the flysheet is 66D 210T Ripstop with PU lamination.

There is also a groundsheet made from 100% nylon taffeta 70D 210T also with PU lamination.

The overall height of the tent is five feet while the inner tent section is just over four feet high. The inside of the tent measures about 97 square feet.

Other Notable Features

Setting up this tent involves connecting the airframe, inner tent, and outer tent once before the first time you use it. From then on, the tent can simply be rolled out like a sleeping bag, pumped up, and secured with pegs. When you are ready to pack up again, all you need to do is open one of the valves. The simple opening of a valve will deflate the airframe. After that, you simply roll up the tent and put it back in the pack-sack.

The tent uses a one pump system. The frame’s air chambers are connected. That way, the entire tent can be pitched by only using one valve.

Heimplanet notes that the tent has been tested and has withstood wind speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. The ripstop nylon fabric also provides a way to keep the wind out and protect those inside the tent from the elements.

Pros and Cons

There are many things to like about this innovative tent. Besides the year-round versatility, it has a wide entrance and spacious feel. There are numerous storage compartments that make organizing your camping gear easy.

I particularly like the storage in the ceiling that has a place to store your valuables as well as mounts to attach lamps. Plus, there is a second entrance and exit at the rear of the tent.

The biggest advantage – again – is technology and design. This tent looks cool. Although this tent can handle all types of weather conditions, it is lightweight and doesn’t weigh-a-ton like many traditional tents.

While a lightweight tent is convenient for everyone, it is especially appreciated by those of us that like to hike and camp in more remote destinations. Carrying less weight on your back means an easier journey.

Another plus is that the tent comes with a full four-year warranty, which is rare considering that tents can be put in some pretty harsh conditions.
