And if it rains?
If you are bivouacking in an uncovered area or there is a risk of rain, use a tarp in addition to this shelter.

What are the small walls for?
The tent is mainly composed of a mosquito net on its main walls.
We decided to add small removable walls (you can use them or not) to protect yourself if you ever touch the wall during the night.
Mosquito risk area
If you are visiting an area with a high level of mosquitoes, we recommend you also use anti-mosquito spray, essential oil-based with lemon eucalyptus or even icaridin.
Indeed, in some countries mosquitoes can be carriers of serious diseases such as chikungunya, dengue fever or even malaria.
How to protect yourself from mosquitoes during the day?
Our design teams have developed a complete range to reduce mosquito bites.
Wearing a hat with a built-in mosquito net, and a mosquito repellent jacket and trousers, you won't be bothered by any more insects when hiking in forests, bivouacking or exploring tropical countries.

We chose to use a bulk-dyed mesh.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we opted for a bulk dyeing process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is being produced.
