Bothy bags use ripstop nylon to create a windproof, highly water resistant and very strong shelter.
Bothy bags are increasingly used by mountain rescue teams, outdoor centres and youth groups as emergency shelters and should be always be in the bottom of your rucksack. They create a surprisingly warm and sheltered environment in use and are ideal for lunch stops or accidents. Terra Nova Bothies have allowed their occupants to wait out storms from an hour to a week long in hostile conditions.
Clear windows reduce the feeling of claustrophobia and durable waterproof seats stop your bum getting wet. A roof attachment allows a walking pole to act as a support to help keep the fabric away from your head.
By using Superlite fabrics, and removing any unnecessary extras like windows and pole 'sockets' Terra Nova have reduced both the weight and pack size. Whats more these Superlite models will compress even smaller, giving extra pack space for you other kit.
This product is guaranteed to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 1 year.

I bought this bothy bag for use as shelter in the mountains during support of a 24-hr challenge. I knew I would have opportunities to rest, but due to the exertion knew I would be at risk of getting cold. I also knew I might be using the bothy bag solo. With the caveat that the winds were pretty light, the bag did exactly what I wanted - it cut wind chill, seemed to warm up a little, and was ok for use by just me, by pulling the bag smaller and using packs as the other 'pole'. Lightweight too.
