    Default FieldCandy Tents

    FieldCandy tents do not give you camouflage protection in the natural setting, nor do they help you blend in with the rest of the crowd at the campsite. FieldCandy tents are designed to stand out.
    When we saw the first images of these limited-edition designer tents with their cool flysheets, we had to really stop and think. Is it true that no-one else has manufactured these types of tents for sale before? We have seen individual pieces displayed as art, but we had not seen anything quite like this.
    It was one of those moments when you think: Why have all tents always looked pretty much the same? We customise everything else, why not tents? And even more remarkably: Why have we been satisfied with those boring, standard tent colours for so long?
    So, through a two-year development process, Jersey, UK-based FieldCandy has created what we did not know we needed. Until now. They selected a group of 20 or so artists and designers – photographers, graphic designers, illustrators, branding and advertising designers – to create designs that were then transferred to the ultra-light, waterproof flysheet that covers the two-person tent.
    They now offer more than 40 different designs by 18 artists. The designs are grouped in several collections. In The Legend Collection, for example, includes Terry Pastor’s black design with psychedelic guns and Philip Gatward’s blue and yellow parrots on a grey hued background.
    On the FieldCandy website, a counter next to each design indicates how many of that design are still left. Each tent comes with a label that shows the edition number and the design name. Prices range from $430 for the black FieldCandy signature tent to over $1,000. FieldCandy ships around the world The tents are available exclusively through the website. - Tuija Seipell

    no.
    i like my tents utilitarian. and i'd rather shell out more money for a tent that's super lightweight or designed for the cold than for looks.

    They look like the tents we would build as children. Take two blankets, pin them to the clothesline and weight the bottoms down with rocks. Ta-da.

    (I kind of like the sandwich one actually.)

    I like the sky one and the sheep. They're fun but when I camp, I need a little bit more room in the tent.

    Does the circus tent come with the creepy clown behind the tree?

    I love the watermelon and the sandwich. I would have killed for those as a kid.

    I live in bear country, so I don't think anything that looks like a food item would be something I want to sleep in.

    Bears will be after you for your smell anyway. They don't care about the tent.

    I love them. No idea how practical they are for actual use but they look like fun.

    Edit: looked them up. There's a real tent under the colourful fly. I'm in! (apart from the price which is outrageous)

    So the bears are reading the outside of tents?

    They're cool, they're just not $900 worth of cool.

    That's the first thing that I noticed! HATE him.
