Now You Can Sleep On The Water and The Most Amazing Invention Of 2017

If you thought camping in a tent was the best thing ever, we have two words for you — floating tent!


An Ohio based company, SmithFly, created the Shoal Tent — a tent that essentially floats on water. So if a tent and a boat made a baby, it would be this genius modern marvel.



And it’s not just any random floating contraption. In all of its 8 by 8-foot glory, it weighs about 50 pounds and you don’t have to rob a bank to own it.



So with this baby, we just leveled-up on Jesus by sleeping on water! How’s that for modernization, folks?



Here’s what SmithFly’s website says about the ShoalTent:

“70% of the earth is covered with water, now you camp on it!
Introducing the Shoal Tent, a first of its kind inflatable floating raft with a tent topper that allows you to sleep out on the water. Camp on your favorite farm pond, saltwater flat, spring creek or eddy on your favorite river.
The world is your waterbed.
Sleep under the stars, on the water, feel the flow and let it lull you to sleep. 
There are no tent poles, the tent structure is totally inflatable and when inflated stands up to high winds without a problem. The raft body has three air chambers, two in the lower tube, one in the structure. The floor is a 6″ thick drop stitched high-pressure floor that doubles as your air mattress. The tent fabric is heavy duty, waterproof, sealed with heavy duty #8 zippers.
The tent topper sides all attach and detach using heavy duty hook and loop for the ability to use just the top and get in and out easily through the sides if the need arises suddenly.
The tubes inflate to 3 PSI the drop stitched floor inflates to 10 PSI.
Measurements: Outside to outside 8’x8′ footprint.
Inside comfortable allowance for people up to 6′-3″ tall laying down. Taller than that you can rest your head on the tubes or sleep diagonally like Mike does.
Standing room is up to 6′-3″ in the middle.
Shoal Tent packs down into a burrito roll style carry and storage bag approx. 60″x24″x18″.
The kit comes with Storage bag, patch kit, and manual foot pump.
Weight of tent is approx. 50 pounds.”
