Spacious, quick-pitch tents take center stage


Makers are releasing models with larger floor areas. Pop-up and push-up variants are on the rise.



  • Larger floor space: Many suppliers are extending the floor area of their tents beyond the opening to provide additional space for more people or beach equipment. For the upscale segment, multiroom styles are developed.
  • Quick-pitch designs: The latest releases include several pop-up and push-up models that can be set up within a few minutes. Designs that need assembly and staking down often come with an illustrated manual.
  • Eco-friendly materials: Amid calls for “greener” products, some makers are using flysheets and floors made from recycled PET bottles. For surface treatments, they are opting for variants with no phthalates and heavy metal.
  • Bold colors: Bright colors such as green, yellow and orange dominate selections. Midrange and upscale designs usually combine two or three shades, and a number have reflective tape on the exterior for added visual appeal and visibility at night.
  • Price forecast: Quotes are expected to rise between 5 and 10 percent in 1H12 due to higher polyester costs.
