Terra Nova Bothy 8

  |  

The Terra Nova Bothy 8 is a superbly versatile outdoor group shelter, suitable for housing 8 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 8 might also save your life too. 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)." *
