Jero, a Flat-pack Yurt-inspired Shelter

_MG_0334_3
The folks over at Trakke call the Jero a “shelter,” rather than a tent, which seems a good way to go – it’s made out of wood after all. The flat-pack structure features marine-grade plywood walls, wooden rafters, and a canvas roof – total weight 110 kg.

With a few pairs of hands, the Jero should be easy enough to build, but the 4-meter diameter footprint means that you need a fairly substantial flat area at your disposal. Obviously, this would be too much work for a quick weekend trip to the mountains – but if you like going camping for extended periods of time, then the Jero could be the ticket.

Price: ~$7400 [via Uncrate]
