Nothing kills a great outdoor camping experience quicker than tedious equipment assembly. Enter Cinch!, the brainchild of Lancashire, U.K.-based Jack Jackson, a life-long camper who wanted an affordable tent that sets up quickly and incorporates today’s best technology.

Described as the ultimate pop-up, Cinch! incorporates high-quality superflex fiberglass poles that go up in seconds and can be packed away in under a minute into a disc-shaped rucksack. Just take it out of its bag and shake it out.

The outer layer of the Cinch! is made from 4000HH fabric, three times the industry standard for waterproofing. It’s double-skinned to prevent condensation, and all seams are double-taped to prevent dampness. Two entrances provide instant ventilation if the tent gets too hot, and there’s an optional, attachable radiant barrier that reflects heat to keep it cool inside.

Another unique option is the solar power pack, which is attached to the roof to capture solar energy and provide electricity for mobcinch_highres-61ile phones and USB appliances. The tent also comes with LED lanterns, LED tent pegs and light-reflective guylines as standard, to make navigation easier in the dark.

Cinch! comes in two-, three- and four-person sizes and has additional features like large storage areas and extendable canopies to increase living space.
