Description

The Lanshan 1 allows more traditional camping and isn't heavier or much more expensive than the Oex Salamanda. The bivi bag is compatible with the OEX Expedition Tarp and the Bush Tarp Pro, allowing you to expand your shelter if needed. is completely overkill for a pack, a 40l pack should be fine but would still be pushing it for hand luggage. Currently averaging two bivis a week and, once you stop thinking of bivi bags as a lightweight alternative to a tent, but rather as being something different, allowing you to utilise often poor ground in a more discrete way than a tent, then hooped bivis start making sense.

In fact, a quick Google suggests that the advice in the uncommon event of a Brown Bear attack is to lie down and play dead so that they stop perceiving you as a threat. The only thing i’d wish it did was to be able to open up the front completely so that you could lie on your front and look out. 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. However, the Oex Bush Pro might help me to use a smaller rucksack (which might ideally fit in hand luggage on the plane - otherwise I have an 80-litre Karrimor rucksack). In that case I think having my head peeping out of the Oex Bush Pro would give me better situational awareness/readiness to use the pepper spray, and in this regard I suppose the Oex Bush Pro would be safer.

When there's a breeze, you can set it up so there's plenty of venting, or leave the porch side wide open. Combined with a 50 quid decathlon ultralight air mat and a cheap no name pertex / primaloft summer bag (i dont do cheap down) it makes a very versatile system for anything from bikepacking to sleeping in mates gardens to the odd trespass in a private wood!

Turkey is huge and has innumerable sights worth visiting so it depends on your interests, the Lycian Way is a popular trail. However, some users have noted that it can be quite heavy for a ‘lightweight’ shelter, and there can be issues with condensation. It features a 5000mm hydrostatic head flysheet and a 7000mm hydrostatic head groundsheet, providing excellent protection from rain and damp ground. His love for the great outdoors began at a young age, and over the years, he's traversed some of the most challenging terrains and scenic trails around the world.

With the front rain cover open and the mozzy net zipper down, there was a nice breeze flowing through.

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. If the hostel is in an urban centre, it may not have a garden to air the bivvi or small tent outdoors.I haven't used the Polestar either, my experience with that style of tent is condensation can be an issue but YMMV. Perfect for fast packers and wild campers, the waterproof bag protects you from the elements and comes with aluminium pegs and guylines to help secure your pitch. 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.
