You’ll love using this - so handy & not just for emergencies!
Something so simple as this can really transform your days out walking. Not only could it actually help save your life if you become injured, lost, or stuck somewhere by keeping you in a warm cocoon- dry and protected from the wind, but it’s actually brilliant to use for short cuppa / lunch /rest stops. I’ve been so impressed I’ve bought these for family and friends too.
I reckon the vango one is a good investment- it’s strong and robust (never underestimate the power of the wind on fabric on an exposed hill), it has taped seams (although you may still get condensation inside when you use it, it means it’s pretty waterproof against heavy rain and snow outside) and the size is decent for 2 adults (many other makes have narrower/lower dimensions- you don’t want it too big but you do want room to get you and your gear inside). The reflective tape on top may one day come in handy too if you are indeed in need of rescue - you’ve a better chance of being located.
Definitely worth carrying and using on remoter walks and/or wilder weather days to give you some respite from the elements. Yes, it’s a bit bulky, but it’s something you’ll find yourself using on most trips so it earns its place in your rucksack!
