We do love something a bit different when it comes to “camo solutions”, and Snugpak, the UK’s leading sleeping bag and insulated clothing manufacturer has a whole collection of products featuring the brand’s best-selling “Terrain Pattern”. Users will now be able to mix and match products to complete their collections!
A number of their most popular sleeping bag models are now available in Terrain Pattern. The Snugpak Explorer Kids sleeping bag for the “littlest ones” is ideal for sleepovers or camping trips and as it can be opened fully to add versatility it can be used as quilt or blanket as well. In addition, the Sleeper Lite, Sleeper Extreme and Sleeper Expedition are ideal camping sleeping bags and an introduction to Snugpak’s performance range. They all are mummy-shaped and have different warmth ratios depending on your needs. All the sleeping bags in the Sleeper collection are robust and durable with a soft touch feel and a manageable pack size.
When it comes to shelter from the elements the compact Ionosphere (a firm AA favourite!) is a two-pole, one door, easy to pitch (inner first) tent for overnight stays, wild camping and adventure racing. The inner tent is made of a No-See-Um Mesh Mosquito Net which not only keeps out bugs and snakes but it can also be used without the fly as a stand-alone mosquito shelter/barrier in the summer months and in warmer climates. When weight is a consideration, the Ionosphere packs down small with a light trail weight of only 1.2kg / 2.65lbs (fly, poles and inner tent) and doesn’t take up valuable space, making it suitable when weight and pack size are vitally important. A Terrain flysheet is also available for anyone who already owns an Ionosphere.
Snugpak’s popular bushcraft range has a capsule of sleeping solutions which are available in Terrain Pattern, including the Tropical Hammock which is strong, lightweight and easy to set up, thanks to the Suspension Attachment System. Made out of “550” paracord with spaced out knots, it allows for various attachment points and distances from the tree. No more fumbling and tying knots, simply wrap the Suspension Attachment System around the desired tree then run the knotted end through the loop end and attach the carabiner on the hammock to the knotted section to achieve the desired length and height when setting up. The Hammock comes in a stuff-sack with the suspension system guy ropes, carabiners and tree protectors.
Snugpak‘s Jungle Hammock has all the features and benefits of the Tropical Hammock but with an added mosquito net. It offers the perfect solution when you are out in the wild and protection is needed from mosquitos or midges. The Polyester net features 1000 mesh per sq. inch which will ensure that no insects disturb your sleep.
The All Weather Shelter G2 is a rhombus shaped 3x x 3m tarp shelter that offers versatile protection from the elements thanks to its taped seams and waterproof polyester rip-stop. The shelter can be configured as a traditional diamond-shaped tarp, Fly, Lean-to Shelter, as well as other free-standing shelter designs. It comes with four extendable guy lines and eight alloy tent pegs making it ideal as an emergency shelter for group activities and wild camping. A smaller tarp, the Stasha G2 is also available, and we’ll be using this model in our “Basha Tutorial” for TOD later this month in Issue 140.
