Our Guide To Inflatable Tents

Buying an inflatable tent is a whole other ball-game to buying a regular tent. You already know the benefits of an inflatable tent - they promise a faster and easier setup, greater strength, better wind resistance, and super easy repair thanks to the inflatable poles. 

Sure, they’re not cheap, but the innovation and cool features are worth the money! Now, how do you choose the right one for your camping adventures?


First, Let’s Look At The Inflatable Tents On The Market:

The range of Dometic Inflatable Tents includes roomy 8-person tents, to comfy, solo swags. All of them are packed full of features for everyone from beginner campers to camping enthusiasts. Dometic have been in the inflatable tent game for some time now and their range is nothing short of exceptional, making them well worth the money

Aside from the size, the biggest difference between the Dometic inflatable tents is which material they are made from:

  • Weathershield polyester material is durable, lightweight and weather-resistant with UV protection.

  • Weathershield polycotton fabric boasts a cotton content of 35% which creates a more breathable material to reduce condensation in the tent and regulate the interior temperature. This is the most durable material too. 

  • Weathershield REDUX polyester, woven from yarn made from recycled plastic bottles.


Which Tent?



Best for avid campers who will use it throughout the year. 

The Santorini Inflatable Tent is a bigger investment to start with. But what you get for your money is the stronger and more resilient Weathershield polycotton material for longer life and exceptional resistance against wear and tear. This Weathershield material also reduces condensation and regulates inside temperatures better, making it ideal for adverse climates.

This inlfatable tent comes with an intergrated inflatable front canopy, which is brilliant if you want to enjoy some fresh air while keeping your gear out of the rain. There’s also zipped, bug-proof mesh panels on all sides of the tent providing maximum airflow control.
