Tried and Tested:
I spent the better part of five years in the cadet forces much of it camped out under one of these identical basha's. This is a truly versatile lightweight shelter. No Poles or No pegs necessary. The shelter can be suspended from bungees and Paracord alone, or rough shape some twigs into pegs and make a Lean-to shelter.
The whole Basha folds up small enough to fit into a water bottle pouch and weighs in at less than a kilo, even after you've added some bungees and lightweight pegs. The ultimate Bug-Out-Bag shelter or easy to carry car kit. I honestly can't recommend one of these Basha's enough.
