Existing modelThe Bugout series is a new category of shelters. These simple shelters consist of a well designed tarp with mesh walls that can either be stowed or easily dropped to offer instant no-see-um protection. String the tarp between two trees or trekking poles, or use NEMO's adjustable height poles to create an escape from rain, bugs, or sun. The Bugout Elite shelter adds only a few ounces to your pack but provides the same luxury of space and standing height to your backcountry site that would take pounds in a tent. It provides a haven from the elements without cumbersome poles or tricky setup. A specially developed mesh with high water repellency protects against side blown rain and effortlessly sheds moisture when it's timeto pack up. Adjustable height, multiple configurations, and Footprint option make this unique shelter a multifunctional tool for your quiver.
