coming from a normal bivi bag it’s a gamechanger, the extra space for you head and ability to sleep sideways and not get all twisted up in a cocoon certainly helps with a better night’s sleep. Borrowing more than you can afford or paying late may negatively impact your financial status and ability to obtain credit. In the Caucasus I walked across Armenia following the Transcaucasian Trail ( https://transcaucasiantrail. Nothing better for stealth camping and can be set up in the dark, in close cover and also usefully when blind drunk!

I wish you success in your walk but I think being discovered by a bear at night is likely to more than stressful, potentially closer to terminal. I will be accepting lifts every now and then though if offered, which will make the journey a little shorter. Today, we’re going to delve into the world of solo camping and review a product that promises to make your solo adventures more comfortable and convenient: the OEX Salamanda Bivi Bag. If a bear did happen to encounter a sleeping person, I'd wager the most likely outcome is that the bear notices the person and goes elsewhere long before the person has much chance of even being woken by the bear, let alone attacked. With a 5000mm HH flysheet and a 7000mm HH groundsheet, the bivi bag offers excellent protection from rain and damp ground.I am actually not that experienced with how to approach airing a tent in a cramped urban hostel, maybe there is some practical advice you can give. This will not need a tarp to keep it dry, unlike gortex which will soak through during long periods of rain.

It was cosy without feeling claustrophobic, and the zip opening with midge mesh was a nice touch, keeping insects at bay while allowing for ventilation. Cooking in the vestibule is possible in dry weather with door tied back and sleeping with mesh zipped round was great overnight (no rain) plenty length ,rucksack went at feet with no problem ,I’m 5 ft 9.

Its a very spacious little thing, and well ventilated to minimise condensation, but you will get some. What is the deal with very small tents (or bivvy bags with supporting poles) vs more basic bivvi bags in regards to safety from bears and dogs, including from a situational awareness perspective? Also if you know any good summary of the best cheap ultralight tents or tarps/bivvis available in the UK (eg if a magazine which reviews them produces an annual roundup of the best ones, or if there is a particularly good reddit thread on the subject) I would be keen to check it out.

Google Earth is the best tool for planning IMO, you can draw on routes to export to a mapping app on your phone (I use OSMand with downloaded contours for hiking and MAPS.

It packs down to a compact size of 43 x 11 x 11 cm, making it easy to carry in your backpack without taking up too much space. It’s also a great choice for wild campers, people bikepacking and fast packers who need a lightweight, easy-to-pitch shelter that doesn’t compromise on protection from the elements. I haven't used the Polestar either, my experience with that style of tent is condensation can be an issue but YMMV. The Salamanda is very quick to pitch, more room than most, with an excellent bug net doorway giving great viability. However, if you’re looking for a truly lightweight shelter, there are other options on the market that may better suit your needs.

This is a great product and I have been using this for a number of years on multiday hikes in the wild. It offers good protection from the elements, although it may be a bit heavy for those looking for a truly lightweight shelter. If you're running a script or application, please register or sign in with your developer credentials here. The larger the surface area of the tent or bivvi, the more inconsiderate this might be to air and dry it in a cramped hostel bunk room, which will in a few cases be packed full of migrant workers. It’s a balance between allowing enough air in to reduce condensation, but not so much that it lets in drafts or insects.

You might use it more than you expect, hostels can be few and far between in some areas when on foot. As with any outdoor gear, it’s important to consider your specific needs and preferences before making a purchase. Set up for the first time in the dark on a stealth camp and recommended be a fine gent, the English Woodsman. However I don't anticipate that there will be a lot of trees in some parts of southeastern Georgia or parts of Azerbaijan (see en. Thing is, shelters like the Jupiter Lite and OR Helium are a different fish to the Elan and Stratosphere – more difficult to get in and out of, for one thing, due to the lack of side zip.Please note that the ratings and reviews are based on user experiences and may not reflect your own experience with the product. I cycled across the Balkans and Turkey and hiked across the Caucasus using a silnylon MLD Duomid (~500g), which offers far more protection and comfort than any bivvy bag I have used, for the same or less weight. I've got extended guy lines on mine, which allows me to use my second trekking pole to change the direction of pull of one end, slightly increasing headroom over one end. It was OK on its own but when I added a sleeping mat and sleeping bag there was hardly any space left. I plan to stay in hostels most of the way, however I want a backup bivvy bag which I can use if I whenever I don't complete a segment by nightfall.
