Back-to-basics camping is a great way to get in touch with nature and find yourself or to just enjoy some time away from the strains and stresses of modern life. It is also a great way for you to flex your muscles and prove just how manly you really are.

That being said, the weather can turn at the drop of a hat when you are out in the middle of nowhere. This is when it pays to be prepared. No-one is saying you are scared of a little rain or a gust of wind, we’re just saying it makes sense to have a contingency plan is all. Advanced Shelter Systems has designed and produced a number of different pop-up shelters that can be deployed in an instant when you really need it.

One of the most recent is the Shiftpod 2. This shelter consists of a composite super-fabric and manmade microfiber down that is reflective and retains heat while reducing outside noise. The fabric is coated with a patented composite that helps reflect the heat, so you are comfortable and warm if camping during winter.

The company put the Shiftpod 2 through rigorous tests such as 100mph winds and it lived to provide shelter again so you will be safe inside one of these beauties. With a pop-up time of 22 seconds and the few minutes it takes to set the lines and stakes, you can be safe and sound in no time at all.
