Bothy Shelters

Bothys are a simple shelter that can be set up in a matter of seconds using the occupants as the structure. They are great for uncomfortable situations where you might want to do a navigation check out of the weather all the way to extreme Search and Rescue situations where a shelter is needed immediately.   These bothys have been used all over the world including Antarctica, Canada and Australia and are part of Ambulance and Search and Rescue  kits. These bothys can be modified to suit teams and other needs of the intended users.
