- Bothy bags/emergency survival shelters work well with multiple people as everyone can get into the same shelter, the more body heat the better! They work by everyone sitting inside them up against the side walls and sat on the edges to anchor the shelter down. Imagine them as a very basic tent but this time you and your group are acting as the tent poles!
- Survival bags are great for soloists and trail runners, they act as a heat retaining waterproof bag that you can get your whole body inside of to protect you against the elements. The inside is reflective thus containing as much heat as possible and the outside is bright orange making you easier to spot in an emergency. They are also incredibly lightweight and very cheap.
