Our Emergency Storm Shelter is used to provide protection from the wind and rain when you are in the outdoors, without a tent, and have to take shelter that you might not have planned to.
It’s lightweight, easy to carry and can be pulled over 2-3 people to help keep the elements off them in an emergency.
The shelter is made from high-viz orange, PU-coated polyester and has two large retro reflective patches on the front to help reflect the torch light from a search party or helicopter searchlight.
A viewing window is also included to let the occupants see out whilst keeping sheltered and two air-vent snorkels aid ventilation. These can be adjusted or closed in heavy winds and rain.
Two people can sit inside the shelter and have enough room to face each other and still have an area in the middle to eat. Three people in the shelter is a bit more crowded.
This type of emergency shelter, sometimes referred to as a ‘bothy bag’.
An essential item of safety equipment for any outdoor activity, storm shelters are now increasingly used by mountain rescue teams, outdoor centres, mountain bikers, back country skiers and hill walkers. They are designed as a lightweight storm shelter, they create a surprisingly warm and sheltered internal microclimate.
The shelter comes in a handy pouch.
