My new Highlander Emergency Survival Shelter ‘Bothy bag’ has arrived from the UK. I purchased a 2-3 person version via e-bay for about $50.00 including postage.
After getting caught out in the drizzle a few times over on the Eyre Peninsula back in June, I decided to buy one to try to keep myself and the radio dry.
It is made of 3000 mm HH waterproof and windproof AB-TEX fabric. It is high visibility orange and measures 142 cm (length) X 47 cm (width) X 92 cm (height). Its weight is just 340 grams. It has some PVC clear windows and a breathing hole with an integrated draw cord. It is really compact and lightweight, and folds away into a small bag 10 X 22 cm.
