Hmmm, this is different... http://www.tentsile.com/index.html

I guess it would be low impact, no flattening of the ground with with the tent!

Got to be a good tree climber to hang one of the big ones. Looks like a lot of fabric too.

They actually make this thing?!  The perfect solution for those fascinated with tree houses, complex shelters, and playing cat's cradle.  Yea, sure the ground can limit tent placement options, but I would muse finding an opening in a forest that is big enough to accommodate this thing with trees in the proper locations also presents a challenge.  Lastly the example of it deployed in a snow field is just silly!  Any experienced camper know the coldest sleep in cold weather is one that permits air to circulate under your bedding.

Sooo, how does this differ from a hammock or a portaledge (which have been around for centuries in the case of hammocks and decades in the case of portaledges)?
