Terra Nova Bothy Bags are a lightweight and compact emergency shelter with excellent features. Every group, expedition and single outdoor user should have one, they create a 'microclimate' for escaping from the elements.
Terra Nova says:
Used by mountain leaders, rescue organisations, backcountry skiers and canoe guides all over the world, these indispensable lightweight emergency shelters allow the users to create a 'microclimate' that is warm and dry - perfect for map reading, group discussions or even as a morale-booster for wet lunch breaks. Bothy bags come in a range of sizes and feature clear windows made from low temperature PU, mesh vents and roof 'sockets' which can house walking poles for additional support.
An invaluable piece of emergency kit if the worst happens, the Bothy 2 opens up to shelter two people from the elements. They also provide a great shelter from the rain at lunch time! Do not leave home without one.
