Could save your life
on 23 June 2014
Purchased this to take on a walk from Ullapool to Ardgay. It was a 4 day walk so to save weight i ditched the tent and slept under the stars in this and a sleeping bag.
Its basically a heavy duty plastic bag. As long as you don't get a hole in it its impermeable to water so kept me dry when it rained at night. Only down side is that with it being plastic you will get a build up of condensation after a while.
It is also an excellent wind break, and was used a few times to sit in and have lunch. Getting out the cold wind is such a morale booster.
I now carry it my rucksack every time I'm in the mountains. Luckily i have never had to use it in a survival situation but its reassuring to know its there incase i need it or incase any fellow walkers required it.
I would recommend anyone going into the mountains carry one of these. If you had to spend the night on the mountain then this will save your life, keeping you dry and out the wind, delaying the onset of hypothermia long enough for you to walk off in the morning or until mountain rescue located you.
It doesn't take up much space and is cheap as chips.
