If your camp set up could use a nice undercover area for relaxing under, then the Speedy Air Shelter is a quick pitch solution for your weather woes.
This inflatable shelter will add plenty of shelter to your camp set up, and inflates quickly with its one piece TPU beam. With plenty of head room for even the tallest of campers, you can walk in and out of the Speedy Air Shelter without bumping your head. And, it also comes with one zip wall included if you need a bit of wind protection or privacy.
If you’re the type that manages to get burnt even when you’re sitting under a tree wearing a hat, then the SPF50 rating on this shelter is going to be a godsend when you’re trying to protect yourself from that harsh summer sun. And, if the weather turns sour - this Air Shelter has a 2000mm waterhead rating which’ll give you some cover when it starts to rain.
Do the straps on the ground between bottom of the air poles remove after setup?
The straps need to remain in place on the Explore Planet Earth Speedy Air Shelter, as they provide structure and support. The straps prevent the legs from being pushed outwards. Not all air shelters are like this, however, this is the case with this particular design.
Hi, I'm trying to get an understanding of the structure. Could you tell me what the 'air' refers too, I'm assuming its inflatable channels, but that looks loke a pole in the picture. Perhaps it has a combination? Also what are those white ladder looking things around the bottom edge, pegging points? Is there a mesh wall available as well? Thanks :)
The 'air' in the Explore Planet Earth Speedy Air Shelter refers to the fact that all poles are filled with pressured air through the hand pump (included) to give the shelter its structure. There are no solid poles involved. The poles are made from a TPU Air Bladder and then supported by the guy ropes as seen in the image.
At this stage, there is no video or additional images available on this shelter, however, we can work on this with Explore Planet Earth.
You're correct that the white toggles at the base of the poles are the pegging points.
Unfortunately, at this stage, Explore Planet Earth aren't offering additional mesh or solid walls but hope to do so later this year (October 2017 is their current ETA).
...to release hot air....
We're actually not too sure about this, so we've called Explore Planet Earth about the vents. Good news is they are going to set one up for us and then let us know - so as soon as we hear from them we'll let you know what they say.
I've just heard back from the supplier, and they've confirmed that the Speedy Air Shelter does not have vents in the roof.
