Here are the key differences:
1. Many tents are treated with flame retardant chemicals and our pod is not.
2. Tents are made from waterproof materials that are not air permeable; our privacy pod is made from a premium, breathable fabric and has air vents you can open up as well.
3. Our structure is bottomless, allowing you to quickly and easily slip it over a playard.
4. A tent that would fit a playard inside would be giant (especially to fit the crib through the entryway); our pod is specially designed to be the same width and length as a playard, meaning it doesn't take up much room in a hotel room. (If you’ve set up a camping tent before, the way the poles work will feel familiar to you, which is a good thing!)
