Snugpak Winter Camping Essentials

November 16, 2018

With the cold weather rolling in, it’s time to gear up again.

Since establishment in the 1970’s, Snugpak have ran their operations from England, in a listed mill at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. With ever changing conditions and terrain, it makes sense for Snugpak’s expert team to remain manufacturing specialist products; for a specialist environment. 

Whatever your mission, overnight protection from the elements is essential. If sleeping outdoors in the Winter, you’ll be thankful for a four season tent. The Snugpak Ionosphere is low profile, in a covert colour way for tactical missions this one-person tent is loaded with features to ensure your stay in the outdoors reaches its full potential. Measuring only 2.4m long and 0.9m wide, the Ionosphere packs down compact and weighs only 1.2kg in total. The Ionosphere consists of a 210t Ripstop Flysheet and 190t Nylon Groundsheet, both of which are equipped with 5000mm Waterproof PU coating, and inside is a 190t Polyester Mesh Inner with mosquito net. The whole tent features waterproof taped seams, is fire retardant, and is built up of alloy cross stakes with two anodised aluminium poles.


As the perfect companion to your Ionosphere, the Softie Elite 2 will keep your temperature up through the night, and is lightweight and compact; weighing only 1300g. Snugpak’s Softie insulation paired with the exceptional wicking system means the Elite 2 is not only perfect for Winter camping, but versatile enough for Summer too; with a built in Expanda Panel, which makes the bag wider and more breathable.
