Last time out, we had the Cinch Pop-up Tent, now we bring you one of the Heimplanet Tents in FISTRAL — the smallest of the four inflatable geometric tents.
The FISTRAL is said to be good for 1-2 persons but it costs a hefty €411,76 Euros. Yep, pretty expensive where the only thing different is its pumping mechanism. Now, is it really worth it? Let’s see..
Well, the video maybe entitled a test and review, but it’s really more like a demo on how to set it up. No real test or at least questions on the tent’s specs or durability. So.. let’s do our thing.
Hmm… While those chambers looks stable, how much wind and rain could it actually handle before those straps and strings tear off?
And unless the tent has a built-in foam — then the comfort of your back largely depends on the surface you place your tent on. Right?!
Still, what’s nice with FISTRAL though is it’s lighter at 2.5 kilograms compared to other ‘high-end’ tents which is double its weight.
As for its 2 entrances and 2 vestibules — ‘maximum comfort’ isn’t the right adjective for this as comfort should include your ‘bedding’. So, in this case, it’s more of ventilation.
And speaking of ‘air’, why is the pump (€23,53) separately bought? Is it for those who lost their pump? Ah, there should then be a discount on those who purchases the tent with a pump.
Rain or shine, let’s go!
