They are a brilliant piece of kit, had many a cosy lunch in mine while the elements are doing their worst. I have a 2 man which is fine for 2 and I went for the ultralight Terra Nova version. Not cheap, but it is so light and small I don't have to think twice about putting it in my rucksack.

I carry a Lifesystems survival bivvy bag, which I've never used but I was tempted on Sunday. If I'd known Kate had her shelter with her I'd have raided her rucksack! I haven't got one but I have enjoyed hospitality in one when I was on a nav course and they are definitely a good idea when you are likely to be hanging around on a mountain in poor conditions.

I carry a 4 person Terra Nova ( Autumn /Winter only ).
I had never used it until Sunday .
It kept the wind and rain off Me and the %uD83D%uDC08 while we were hanging around by
the stretcher box waiting to ascend Great Gable.
Ideal for what I want , could be invaluable in a real emergency situation so
I think it%u2019s a wise investment.

The weather is going to glorious next year but we could still give it a go.

Superb things. Essential in winter and I have used mine in earnest when a Scout was suffering hypothermia. My kids loved it, when the whinging started the bothy came out along with the biscuits - a real giggle.
