Avid camping enthusiasts will likely have a store room full of camping essentials like hammock, tent, sleeping bag and probably even air mattress, which means there’s a lot to bring for one simple camping outing. But, it need not be the case – if you have the Crua Hybrid by Crua Outdoors. So what the heck is a Crua Hybrid? Well, it is everything. Crua Hybrid is a one-man tent, a hammock, an air mattress and a sleeping bag, rolled into one. In short, it is kind of like a complete outdoor sleeping package, really. Or you could say it is an adaptive camping gear.
Adaptive because it can be a cosy sleeping area that suits the site. If the ground is too rocky or uneven, just look for trees and hammock up, or if there are no close trees on your desired ground, pitch up a tent. Easy. Basically, it also adapts to your desire at the point in time. Seriously, we couldn’t think of a more perfect pitch then this, more so for myself as I am a causal camper which means owning multiple camping gears make zero sense. Granted, the tent isn’t big, but it has everything you need for a good night rest when out in the wild.
Each Crua Hybrid features a waterproofed ripstop nylon construction that could stand up to even the heaviest downpour, bug proof mesh to keep uninvited tiny guests out while also maintaining breathability, an insulated air mattress and sleeping bag, aircraft-grade aluminum arch poles and pegs, shock chord system, and a pair of strategically placed ventilation outlets to prevent condensation within your cosy nest. Crua Hybrid is designed to allow more than one Hybrid to be connected together to create a larger tent, or if so choose to, you could even build a tent city out of many Hybrids. Also, it is a hammock that can be loaded up to 285 lbs.
Most importantly, it is easy to transport and store. Weighing a mere 6.95 lbs, Crua Hybrid rolls up to two compact, easy to lug along packages. The first, measures 20 by 9 inches in diameter, packs the tent, hammock and air mattress, and the second package is the sleeping bag and measures just 12 by 6 inches diameter. Once again, Crua has taken to Kickstarter where you can join nearly 700 backers in pre-ordering the Hybrid at a crowdfunding special sticker of $269. There’s no need worry about funding as the campaign, which has 17 more days to go, is already over 1,000 percent funded.
