SheltaPod is unique as it can be configured as a

in three stages so the user can decide on how much cover they want. It only
takes a moment to roll up the fabric and fix in place with hooks. There are
extra guy lines to hold it in place.

Sleeping in a SheltaPod
The inner tent has an integrated bath-tub style groundsheet, two doors, one mesh and the other fabric. Both have central zips and tiebacks. It also has two mesh window panels with curtains, one on the top for a view of the stars and the other at the back. This can provide better ventilation in hot climates. It also gives campers a view out when the rainfly is rolled up - the perfect place to sit if there are lots of insects around!
