BOULDER, Colo. (Sept. 16, 2021) – Tiny Tents, creators of scale-model tents with all the features and functionality of regular-sized tents, today introduced the Basecamp Dome Tent, a 15”-tall geodesic-dome-shaped mountaineering tent designed to withstand the toughest of elements. The Basecamp Dome Tent joins the original Tiny Tent, one of the hottest-selling tents since 2019, offering quirky home décor for lovers of the outdoors and providing camp-themed shelter for adventure-seeking pets.
“While the original Tiny Tent began as a novelty item, it absolutely exploded, and became perhaps the fastest-selling tent in America,” said Chris Clearman, Founder and CEO of Tiny Tents. “Tiny Tents is now back and more ridiculous than ever with the Basecamp Dome Tent, designed to offer miniature, unmatched protection from harsh conditions. It’s one of the most hilarious concepts we’ve ever envisioned – and we’re confident that it’s the lightest four-season tent to ever hit the market.”
Tiny Tents, a sister brand of Matador Travel Equipment, was sparked from a childhood dream of the Matador founders – to own one of the scale-model tents that outdoor retailers use to display tent features. When Tiny Tents was launched in 2019, it was instantly lauded by the public, receiving multitudes of five-star reviews and selling-out REI’s inventory in a matter of weeks.
The new Tiny Tents Basecamp Dome Tent elevates the amusement to a new level, with a design based on mountaineering tents used on rugged alpine expeditions. The geodesic dome shape provides high ceilings for maximized comfort, and two mesh windows offer cross-ventilation. Additional features include ultralight poles with elastic connections, a durable tarpaulin floor, and a double-layered door with a mesh screen.
“It’s absurd, but it might also be the best gift of 2021 – for cat parents, for outdoorsy friends, or for any white elephant exchange,” continued Clearman. “It’s guaranteed to bring laughter – something we all need more of these days.”
The Tiny Tents Basecamp Dome Tent (MSRP: $39.99) and the original Tiny Tent are currently available online at www.TinyTents.com. Both models will be available at REI (in-store and online at REI.com) in October 2021.
