At this point we all know that if I have the opportunity to circumvent or finagle my way out of manual labor, everyone better settle in for a sweeping display of circumventing and finagling. So the news that setup of Kelty's AirPitch Mach 6 tent will demand less than 1 minute of my time, and a proportionately minimal amount of effort, sits very well with me. Not well enough to walk in the woods or up a mountain to go camping or anything, but I'd be down with pitching it in my backyard so my grandma has somewhere to sleep when she comes to visit.
The AirPitch Mach 6 is a 2+-room tent outfitted with Kelty's inflatable AirPoles, which reach full expansion and structural stability in under a minute with the package's included pump. In contrast to traditional tent poles, the air-filled versions can also bend and flex without breaking. Kind of like this girl I once knew from Nantucket....
The Mach 6 also has an integrated, fully-vented rainfly that needs no further assembly post-inflation, and the tent's interior features a zippered vestibule for safe, weather-proof storage. Two separate sleep rooms establish privacy for parents from children, couples from couples, and me from Cornelius after he scarfs down a vat of baked beans and Lit'l Smokies and starts stinking shit up.
