A Summit Bothy Bag is an essential part of my equipment on the hills, both at home and abroad. I regularly use one of your shelters for rest stops,
clothing changes and sometimes to stabilise an injured climber out of the wind and rain. An excellent piece of kit for all mountain folk.

As a Lake District National Park Voluntary Warden, I make sure I always carry my Summit Bothy Bag (KISU) in my rucksack when on patrol

Have used Summit Bothy Bags for many years, they are a vital part of personal kit – providing protection against adverse conditions year round

Thankyou for sending us the new Supalite Bothy to trial. I am delighted to to say that we are very pleased with it, and will be purchasing some for our leaders and staff to carry. This version should also be popular with mountain bikers and fellrunners as its so compact

Hi Pete, great week in Scotland thanks. Storms Gertrude and Henry put the bothy bag through its paces. Very pleased with it thanks. very light and compact. Even though this is a 4 man bothy bag making in a new lighter material means i will also use it for our weekly mountain bike rides. I have attached some pictures during storm Gertrude where we used it to shelter from the wind and driving snow.

Thanks for the prompt attention, kind regards Mark

We were very pleased on Saturday to be trying out the Summit Gear Supalite 2 Person Bothy Bag. Lunchtime proved to be the perfect opportunity to do so because just as we started sandwich munching, Dartmoor decided to do hailing. We gave ours a good testing and were impressed. It is not the roomiest of shelters but, for the pack size the Supalite offered ample room for two Blondes and their lunch. It took a little bit of adjusting to arrange it to our liking with the fluorescent yellow roof correctly positioned but once were were comfortably seated, the temperature inside rose quickly.

If there are any issues with seams or repair needs, Summit Gear offer a lifetime guarantee and free repair service.

All in all, we Blondes are very pleased with our purchase and will walk safer on the hills (with warmer lunchtimes) knowing that it is with us.


I bought a 6-8 supalite bothy back in August and have finally managed to use it during a really awful D of E Silver with pouring rain and strong winds! Wanted to give you a bit of feedback about the product and service for you to use as you wish, in order to promote business. Happy for you to mention my name.

This item is fantastic! It is spacious enough to fit 8 people without bags, incredibly lightweight and small which meant a really accessible item to have in my rucksack whilst lugging around group kit. The girls from a D of E Silver were so grateful to have a break from 7 hours of horizontal rain, they were warm within minutes, comfortable and their morale went up 10 fold. I was thrilled to have this as some members of the group were displaying typical low morale, shivering and fatigue. This supalite bothy enabled them to carry on safely in the weather conditions. Although the bothy was soaking afterwards, it didn’t seem to seep through whilst inside and I could squeeze most of the water out before putting it back in my bag. The next day, it dried within 5 minutes, just great! I’m so pleased with this piece of kit and am very grateful to Peter who was really helpful on the phone, advising me as to what might be the best option for me, discussing the pros and cons of the different models. Thank you
