Super Lightweight Emergency Shelter, 374g

LESS Weight, LESS Bulk, LESS Cash. 

The L.E.S.S is a very lightweight emergency shelter. Using a 10 Denier rip-stop, yet totally windproof fabric. This simple, no frills shelter design will protect your team from the wind, and preserve precious body heat. There when you really need it, hardly there when you don't. 

For faster moving and highly experienced teams that will only ever use a shelter in a real emergency the LESS is a Lightweight and cost effective safety solution. It is not recommended for frequent use. 

This 1.3m cubed shelter is large enough for 4 people to stay in quite comfortably, and up to 6 people in a huddle. 

In July 2015 we updated the design to include a simple roll away pocket for fast packing. The slightly harder wearing fabric of the pocket will also protect the shelter fabric from abrasion while stowed in your backpack.  Printed with casualty care notes and first aid reminders, this cover will protect your shelter when packed away, and can be written on and utilised in a real emergency.
