Bushcraft is all about enjoying nature and having the skills and knowledge to thrive outdoors. There’s a number of exciting and exhilarating skills needed which include hunting/fishing/finding food stuff, building shelter, tracking and firecraft.
We’re keen on the sport of bushcrafting and know a thing or two about it as do many of our customers and fans, which is why we have specific page set up under ‘activities’ on the website http://www.snugpak.com/outdoor/expeditions/bushcraft is popular and made it our ‘activity of the month’ on the blog .
So if you’re setting off on a bushcraft adventure, getting a good night’s sleep is essential so that you enjoy it rather than feeling tired and irritable. And when it comes to outdoor sleeping equipment, we know what we’re talking about. Here’s what we suggest as a pretty good set up for a quality kip:
First of all you need a hammock that’s strong, quick and easy to set up, and will stay reliably in place all night.
The Snugpak Tropical Hammock is made from lightweight but extremely strong parachute material, with heavy duty carabineers and triple stitched seams for extra support. It comes with a Suspension Attachment System which makes setting up simple, and in the morning it simply folds away into its own stuff bag.
When you’re ready to go, it’s lightweight to carry around – just 590g including carabineers and guy ropes, and will hold up to 175kg. Simple and efficient!
We also have the jungle hammock which is designed to protect you from those nasty bites and annoying insects: http://www.snugpak.com/outdoor/expeditions/bushcraft/jungle-hammock
Here’s another demo video from Stg Fruitcake on the Snugpak Shelter test for further information.
