Good enough to be the difference between living or dying of exposure, after all they are supposed to be emergency shelters not the Hilton :)

Lets be fair. It costs £1, and it's an emergency tent. Not sure what you really expect. :thinking:

20ft of cord is though, one way to keep them quiet:whistling:

Wow - I wish I had one of these when I hitchhiked to Morocco with a mate - we only had an old bit of canvas and a bit of rope for shelter, and had some rough old nights sleeping under the stars. This would have been just the ticket!
#11
Every man should have one of these - great for when the wife locks you out for coming home late in the morning! :thumbsup:

Great find.Must have a lot of alternative uses.

Er, I'm no genius and enjoy a camping bargain like the rest of us and dont want to be a kill-joy but anyone spotted the obvious flaws in this?

First, if you know you're going to go running or hiking in the back woods of Alaska and you're the kind of prepared person who thinks ahead to take one of these, wouldn't you consider taking something a little more substantial and putting your life in the hands of something a little more researched & developed for the purpose. If you didn't know you were going to need the emergency shelter, you probably wouldn't have taken it.

Second, if you're in the wild at the mercy of Jack Frost, freezing your bits off, you have to make a choice (note: the shelter isn't fire retardant!) - light a nice warm fire and sit in front of it and keep it alight all night, or freeze to death in your nice shiny bacofoil wrapper with a great big hole in both ends so the wind can howl through it (note the cord goes through the tent and needs fixing at both ends looking at the picture - cue the need for something to attach it to) . Thats if the wind hasn't shredded it to bits because it only the thickness and strength of a gnats nadger.

Third, if you happen to find yourself just appearing out in the middle of nowhere (which we all do at some point I'm sure) and assuming you've taken your fancy shiny tent with you and therefore forgotten your nice fancy phone, cant walk to the nearest bright house lights, supermarket, B&B or habited place to get yourself back home again or some food or shelter - its not like we live in the back woods of Montana!

Fourth, you'd struggle to find a poundland in some big high streets, nevermind in an emergency (which means you'd need to buy one days, weeks, months, years etc in advance) and remember to keep it for an unknown (date, location) emergency. Best place would be kept the car as chances are you'd be nearer to that than your house. Chances are you'd break down in the car because of a mechanical failure or bad weather, i.e. snow. Can anyone see themselves sitting outside in the snow or rain waiting for the RAC bloke in this? Better getting yourself a decent warm blanket and keeping it in the car than one of these.

Great in theory, and not meaning to put a downer on any fun but I'd stick to back yard play and keep this one for the kids, or invest in a proper bit of kit.

I thought the funniest bit was the fact that her boobs are in direct proportion to his height.

Don't lose sight of the fact this is for emergencies. Because in a real emergency this is much better than nothing at all and you would be bothered.

i gotto answer this one. bear in mind its for a quid.
long story ( cut short ) my 9 year old got separated from us up a mountain the other day. we had to call out the mountain rescue. if he had this item it would have made his wait a bit more comfortable.
this was a skiing trip ( and yes the wifes got a black eye for losing him in the first place :) )

Third, if you happen to find yourself just appearing out in the middle of nowhere (which we all do at some point I'm sure) and assuming you've taken your fancy shiny tent with you and therefore forgotten your nice fancy phone, cant walk to the nearest bright house lights, supermarket, B&B or habited place to get yourself back home again or some food or shelter - its not like we live in the back woods of Montana!

well if you set this up so the wind can howl through it (unless the wind changes) , that would go some way to explaining how you got stuck in the first place, a basha / bivvy shelter is designed to keep the majority of your body covered, (boots usually wet, in a cold environment you are likely to pull up your legs & "ball" thus removing length.
An end (or both can be covered with whatevers available, snow wall, branches, twigs, moss backpack etc just to keep the very worst out & you more positive than without basic partial shelter.
the other use is of course as a small & light way of making more room in a 1, 2, 3, man lightweight tent as extra storage so you can sprawl a bit more.

lol - sorry, didnt mean to, just trying to show some common sense - didnt want our fellow HUKD'ers off on some mountain trip thinking they're sorted without putting a bit of realistic thought into this. Great for a laugh although I dont suspect if you really needed to use something like this you'd be quite so humourous after the experience. Been there, and dont want to go back. But, hey ho.

davej1710 - the strength you used to write such a long winded comment must be worth more than the tent.


Just a bit of friendly advice, no more. Some on here might think this may do some good, seems a shame to spoil the fun but someones got to do it at times. Some might only think about these sort of things after its a tad too late - besides life or death isn't exactly a joking matter. :thumbsup:

Besides, if you're desperate enough to be using one of these, I suspect it might have come to that.
