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.
Now I’m finally satisfied that we’ve got the ultimate pop-up tent on our hands, and I really need your help to get it into production. I know I can deliver you excellent value and exceptional quality.
Thank you for your interest and support so far. I hope you can join me on the next step of this adventure – and together we’ll give people the standard of camping they deserve.
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.
