We just spent nine days in the hot and coldextremely windy, dusty, inhospitable Black Rock Desert…and we loved every minute of it. Burning Man is sheer beauty, love, art, and magic read our travelogue on the experience, here but you need to be prepared to fully enjoy yourself. Wondering how we survived degree daily temperature swings, 40mph dust storms, and a nine-day cultural phenomenon?
So, we told them we would try out their tent, but only write a review if we truly loved it…and guess what? The thing was freaking amazing! Plus, they have a nice hole at the top for tying off guylines and easy removal with the back of your hammer. These were super comfy and nestled together nicely to make a double bed. We added a table and chair and still had plenty of room for our bags and storage shelves. Plus, the tent comes with a bunch of hanging pockets to help you organize your bits and bobs.
The Black Rock Desert can get extremely cold at night. Burning Man can be freaking windy. All doors, windows and the floor are equipped with water and dust-proof zippers.
The PROS & CONS about SHIFTPODS [Product Review]
The floor can also be unzipped from the structure which is great for cleaning. Plus, they have ventilation ports with dust filters so you can catch a bit of breeze without the grit.
Going to Burning Man with a crew? Want to make your own camp? There are two sealable power-cord holes, one on either side of the pod, to run electricity without creating gaps in the structure. Some reviews say the size and weight are cons, but when compared to a HexaYurt the most similar option the SHIFTPOD2 is smaller for transport and home storagemore durable, simpler to set up, lighter, and much easier to fit into your ride important if you are carpooling or driving a rental car with no roof-rack.
Heading into Burning Man we were pretty concerned about finding a shelter comfortable and tough enough for nine days in the extreme desert.
Gear Review: SHIFTPOD Insulated Tent
The Shiftpod looks great. I am not generally one for camping, but I like how modern and spacious the tent looks. Love that this tent can stand up in wind as well. Wow this takes camping to another level.
And it only takes 29 seconds to put up. This would be perfect for Burning Man. I like how roomy this tent is, and it sure would have come in handy the nights we camped at Zion National Park in November. It was beautiful during the day but got below freezing at night!
For all the features it offers, is it really considered more of a luxury tent? Looks so spacious and I like the fact you can stand up. So handy! I could definitely see this coming in handy when camping. And I think they price is definitely right for what you get, especially compared to other alternatives.
I watched the video and I thought the Shiftpod outside looks small but when you got inside wow it really is spacious!

Shiftpod: a futuristic, weather insulated pod-tent for extreme environments
Missions and Partners.Have you ever slept in a space ship? Now after four nights in Arizona I get to say that I have, or at least what I would imagine it to have been like. My first impression of the ShiftPod Mini was that it looked like a space ship, since it looked nothing like a conventional tent and must not be from this world. I received the Shift Pod, and the only preparations I did before my first trip was set it up in the garage and install the removable floor that easily zips in.
Setup was very simple and having the floor removable will make it easy to add larger objects that might not fit through the opening as well as clean up after any muddy or dusty trips. Once you get to where ever you are planning on camping, the deployment time is quick. There are instructions in the bag, along with a few goodies like ear plugs and some eye masks, additionally you will find the tent stakes and extra material used for patching any holes in case you encounter a jealous bear that forgets to be courteous and does not use the door when trying to get inside to sleep with you.
There is also a rain fly, and small carry back pack for the items. All you have to do for setup is remove it from the bag that has backpack style carry straps, zipper and a buckle clasp then generally place it in the location that you are looking to camp and start pulling out the sides.
There are loops in the middle of each side panel that are also used to stake down in windy conditions. In the case of the mini there are 4 sides, while the full size one has 6. Once those are pulled out, you go inside and push the roof up. With that, your set up is complete. Add stakes to hold down the sides, place the fly if conditions require and set any guy wires as needed. With how easy it is, this really has been my favorite tent to set up.
After you are all set up and get inside there is surprisingly more headroom and space then the outside leads to believe. I was quite shocked how roomy it felt despite it only being approximately six foot by six foot. The nice thing with the walls that bow outward is that it makes it even more roomy. There are two personal item bags that clip onto the interior poles to store any phones, tablets, books or keys. There is also a loop at the peak of the roof so that you can hang a small lantern.
There are also four port holes that when unzipped create more then enough airflow and ventilation. There are also two additional vents built in on opposite sides that are intended to aid with ventilation that differ from the port holes. The vents have an additional layer of mesh with a Velcro boarder that is intended to hold a small filter, to keep dust down from the inside.
Very creative solution while continuing to provide ventilation. Additionally, there is a small three inch opening with a cinch closing that is there to allow for any cable to pass through if needed.
This brought about many funny conversations but as the inside of the tent can look the same, and it is nice that the door had a label in the event of needing to egress rather quickly. The door also have nicely labeled screen and door tags to make it even easier when closing up. Our first night in the tent, we were amazed with how much warmer it was on the inside then when we were out by the fire. The insulated walls had proven worth it at first glance.Skip to main content Pod Tents.

I spent a long time looking at tents before settling on this one. Like everyone else, I read the negative reviews to get an idea of what some of the problems might be. I really think that most of these complaints arise from We purchased this to use as a porta-potty tent. We did experience some wind during the trip so we collapsed it a couple times to protect it when the wind got a little gusty or stronger.
As stated in other's reviews, it has no vents or windows other than leaving the door flap wide open. You can enjoy the scenery while you do your business hopefully nobody has to see you! It can get pretty hot and humid when zipped. The stakes that come with it are a joke, worthless. Either take your own quality stakes and maybe additional guy lines or know you'll Have been looking for a product like this for my grandkids, who have been asking for a tree fort for quite some time now!
The MINI has one door with bug screen, four windows with bug screens, and two vents with screens. Remember to keep your windows and vents open for air.
For best airflow line up the vents with the prevailing winds. This will push air in one vent and out the other.
Always maintain good airflow so you don't suffocate. The MINI also comes with our heavy stainless steel pins. You may choose to purchase a lighter aluminum or plastic stake if you will be traveling or backpacking for a distance.SHIFTPOD MIR Setup/Break Down & Review
