Like all great camping stories, Cinch! began in a field full of people and mud.
My name is Jake Jackson and I love camping and music festivals. Born and brought up in Lancaster, UK, I’ve been lucky to be surrounded with stunning scenery – from the fells of the Lake District to the estuaries of Morecambe Bay. I love being immersed in it, whether on a bike or on foot – or caked in mud, jumping around to live music at a festival like Kendal Calling. If you’ve got the right equipment, there’s nothing better.
But getting the right equipment is the tricky part. I spent years trying and failing to find a tent that was suitable – working my way through the big brands and their various approaches – but huge flaws were always too apparent. Too heavy; too complicated; too small; no consideration for the smaller touches that can make or break a weekend camping.
So I decided to create a tent myself that would fulfil my own specifications, and those of my friends across the camping community. And so the Cinch! was born. Four years ago I built my first prototype and I’ve produced (and fully sold out of) small runs since then – refining the design each year, with the help of my customers.
This season’s tent is bigger and better than ever with the cool addition of a unique solar power pack, perfect for weekends outdoors and camping at festivals and we can’t wait to get the 2015 model to you.
Due to unprecedented demand, the only way to guarantee a Cinch! tent for delivery in mid July 2015 is to pre-order.
We expect this production run to sell out fast so please get on board ASAP!
All the best features of a tent rolled into one ultimate pop-up.
Made by campers for campers, the Cinch! packs all the features of an advanced tent into a quick and easy pop-up that can be put up and taken down in seconds. Size, endurance, your own power supply - it’s all yours, plus loads more, without compromise.
