Popular in the festival scenes of the UK, Cinch! has caught fire in Europe and is coming to the U.S. They got their start with crowdfunding on Kickstarter, and they’ve been evolving ever since. Beyond their 2-to-4 man tents, they’ve also delved into the need of solar power within their tents. What I found most interesting about their tents is the ability to create a working popup structure that requires little effort, that also is feature rich. The Cinch! 4-man tent comes equipped with two entrances and two windows on each side, canopies on each end, with an extended area that can be used for storage, or as a wet/mudroom, or to simply invite more friends to hang out. The fabric is highly waterproof at 4000HH, the ground floor is an extra-thick bathtub-style fabric, and there’s space dedicated for four people to lay down comfortably, pockets for storage, two torches that transform into lanterns, and LED tent pegs.
All in all, I found the Cinch! 4 Man Popup Tent to be a great social tent, more for get togethers and festivals than for extreme adventuring, which isn’t to say it would not last. It is indeed a very well-made tent with a lot of features to like, and it’s just so damn simple to put up. Upon initial testing, I found no glaring criticisms or drawbacks, but I will continue putting the Cinch! popup tent through the rigors of world travel.
