Terra Nova Bothy 4

3 reviews   |  

The Terra Nova Bothy 4 is a superbly versatile outdoor group shelter, suitable for housing 4 people in both emergency and non emergency situations. 

Not only making your time out on the hills more comfortable (they're the best place to eat your sandwiches), but the Terra Nova Bothy 4 might also save your life. Creating a micro-climate away from the elements and 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 space 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, mesh vents and roof 'sockets' which can house walking poles for additional support. The bothy's also have a low temperature PU window allowing it to function in even lower temperatures. 

Here's what Andy Kirkpatrick has to say:
"A Bothy Shelter/ Bothy Bag is the Number 1 Survival Tool. If you think a bivy bag alone will save your skin I'm afraid you may be sorely disappointed.... A bothy bag is cheaper, lighter and provides far more protection, both physically and psychologically and should be in the rucksack of every climber or walker in the UK (or stowed in a bum bag for rucksack-less multi pitch climbers). By grouping together you can share body heat, food, water and more importantly moral. Also a bothy bag is a very mobile shelter, and you may find that when the shit hits the fan, stopping for half an hour in the bag will allow you to sort yourself out enough to carry on (eat some food, double check the map, ring for a forecast)." *

      Good finish and robust materials

      Bothy 4 is not the lightest smaller bothy but the material es very robust and ideal for rocky aggressive environments where can be easily damaged. It does the job perfectly and Bothy 4 has enough space for a casualty and 2 assistants or 4 people needing shelter. If you do not mind about weight and volume or working in environments where the fabric can be easily ripped, I will recommend it.

      Terra Nova Bothy 4

      A great piece of equipment, light and durable exactly what I was after for both personal use on the mountains and for family days out with the kids as somewhere to stay warm and dry for lunch or to plan an escape if the weather suddenly turns bad.


      Trekking poles are some of the lightest available, engineered using the world's best alloy for pole sections!
