Summer or winter; what can be more exhilarating than an outdoor wilderness adventure? Understanding and being prepared for the unexpected is the key to a great backcountry hiking or camping trip. Food, safe drinking water, clothing, and safety gear are essential for any such outing. The biggest concern when packing for such an adventure is that all items are lightweight enough to be carried for traveling in conditions where the terrain can sometimes present a challenge.
Even the most experienced of campers can temporarily lose their direction, especially when unexpected adverse weather conditions hit. Staying warm and dry in such situations can be difficult, if not impossible, with ‘run-of-the-mill’ tents and sleeping bags. HeatStore Survival Shelters are designed to conserver your body heat and their outer orange layer makes the tent visible among the snow and trees and can be spotted from long distances.
