...and the tent bag is oversized

My youngest is in the Scouts. In a troop of almost 200 boys, they're constantly repairing those shock cords in the tent poles. Nemo Equipment has a nifty idea: replace the tent poles with air tubes. They call it airbeam construction; during inclement weather, the happy camper can climb into the tent and inflate it from inside. There is a foot pump for the breathless and replacement tubes for the extremely careless. The larger two-person model goes for $495 and sets up in 45 seconds.
