Rab Silwing Shelter
Ultra light Rab Silwing shelter is a great way for two to stay protected.
Model: Rab Silwing

“I raise the front end higher during the day, making it easy to get in and out of, arrange my sleeping gear, change clothes, cook, etc.,”. At night, I lower it for better weather protection.” says one tester
