New type of personal tent on horizon
It is a sleeping bag, mat, and bivouac in one. The sleeper heated by his or her own body heat at temps down to thirty below.
It is a spacious inner room--not just a sleeping bag. And it's lightweight.
They call it Magic Tent.
They faced many challenges--for one thing, the insulated material does not touch the body to hold in the heat. This means humidity from the body gets in the air. This gets trapped in a liner. What's left gets taken up by the warmed air in the sleeping "cell," even if the outdoor temp varies.
I am not very versed in tents--does this sound new, different, and promising?
It may hit the market in March of 2016.
