Show Description

Bug-, rain- and sun-proof your camping area. The Bugout shelter lives up to its name, with no-see-um mesh walls that you can roll down to keep even the smallest biting insects out. Since it's floorless, you can string it up with a hammock or hang it over your camp chairs and table.

  • Made of no-see-um mesh and polyester fabric.
  • 2 zippered corners allow easy entry and exit.
  • Multiple stake-out points provide a variety of set-up options.
  • Set up with trekking poles, paddles, trees or adjustable tarp poles (sold separately).
  • Includes stakes, guylines, repair kit and stuff sack.
