smithfly's shoal kit is the world's first inflatable floating raft tent

the world is your waterbed — fly fishing aficionado and founder of smithfly designs ethan smith presents the shoal tent: a first of it’s kind inflatable floating raft with a tent topper that allows adventurers and campers to sleep out on bodies of water. unlike the traft watercraft tent which uses poles to carry the structure, the shoal tent is completely inflatable requiring no poles by using its air pressure to stand up to high winds without a problem.

the shoal tent packs down into a burrito roll style carry and storage bag approximately 60″x24″x18″

 

 

the shoal tent raft body has three air chambers: two in the lower tube, one in the structure. the floor is a 6 inch thick drop stitched high pressure floor that doubles as an air mattress. moreover, the tent fabric is waterproof and sealed with strong #8 zippers. the topper sides all attach and detach using heavy duty hooks and loops, for the ability to get in and out easily through the sides if the need suddenly arises.
