Fully designed and assembled in Northern California, the freestanding Buffalo Tent provides instant shelter through high-tech rain resistant, heat resistant, and blackout camping comfort. The groundbreaking telescopic carbon fiber frame can create a center area greater than nine feet - without the need for a cumbersome center pole. Weighing just 44 pounds, it has an impressive three-minute strike time and is proven to support a robust internal hanging weight of 250 pounds.

“It is like having a portable living room in the size of a golf bag,” affirmed Barrett Lyon, Founder, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Alien Buffalo. “We have succeeded in creating something truly special that does not resemble or function like another regular tent. We started this brand because we felt there was a lack of options beyond just a standard tents and camping equipment.”

The brand considered every element of how a large camping structure should be designed from the thread to the carbon fiber and even the water resistant zippers. The brand new tent design has excelled in tests in all types of extreme weather conditions and temperatures compared to alternatives in the expedition and festival tent space. The reflective cover, AC ducting and superior airflow were able to withstand the searing temperatures in the Nevada Desert.

As its name suggests, Alien Buffalo is a twist on the future and the past where trusted tradition meets modern design and materials which all add up to a magical experience for users. The Buffalo Tent is currently available in two exciting styles and is the first in a collection of equipment to be released by the brand.
