A basha is a really simple but extremely effective shelter and can be put up practically anywhere. Lightweight and easy to pack and carry it is a really handy shelter. I’ve used one for years and it really does beat a stuffy tent and really will keep you dry in even the hardest of downpours (believe me!!).
