Love the concept of a hanging tent. But then again I always liked treehouses...

Not sure how practical it would be, however, except for environments where ground tents are not feasible and hammocks are either unsuitable or not preferred.

I have a Hennessy  hammock - great ultralight and comfortable shelter/bedroll.

The tentstile is much larger though and quite an oddity

Personal Jacket Tent,.. well good to know that there is already one out there... this was another one of my ideas I have had in my mind to try to make..  damn.. Looks interesting though..

I have a hammock tent..  I've not used it yet as I can't seem to find the right number of trees close enough together to put it up..
