Bushmen HIDEOUT Warm / Olive is a multifunction insulated bivvy/sleeping bag that protects you against cold, wet, and insects. It is also an insulated rain poncho and a hammock underblanket.
The hood has a built-in mosquito net which will protect you from mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects.
The HIDEOUT has an upper width of 90cm therefore even a broad-shouldered person can get a comfortable sleep. This then gradually tapers to 45cm at the feet.
Featuring 120g/sqm synthetic filling and supported by a heat-reflective layer the HIDEOUT WARM is well-insulated. When used independently, it is a summer sleeping bag with a comfort temperature of +14°C/+12°C (♀♂).
Used as an external sleeping bag module, it allows you to use other sleeping bags as an inner liner. For example using WALKER 1 (available separately), as an inner sleeping bag, a comfortable temperature will be +5°C/+2°C.
HIDEOUT WARM is a sensational insulated rain poncho with unique features. In addition to the mosquito net protecting the head, it has sides closed with waterproof zippers. This construction protects against heavy rain, snow, and wind better than traditional ponchos fastened with snaps or Velcro. It features double-sided zippers that let you increase or decrease the breathability of the poncho at any time.
The flaps of the raincoat are extended compared to other models and reach below the knees. This length protects your trousers from getting wet when walking and sitting. The chest has a pocket with a waterproof zipper and a flap with a dedicated place for patches.
Expanders are important in this configuration too. You can gird yourself so that the whole poncho fits better (like a raincoat) and at the same time does not hinder movement.
Manufacturers Safety Note:
Elastic expanders provide safety of use and adjustment possibility when HIDEOUT is used as a blanket or poncho. They are designed to take over any stresses arising during use. When the stresses or forces acting on the HIDEOUT are greater than the expanding capacity, the expander elastic cord will slip out of the hook. This is the last signal and the intended protection against damage. In this way, the plastic hooks at the ends of the expanders act as fuses.
Inserting the end of the elastic cord back into the hook is very easy – lift the flap on the top side of the hook, insert the end of the expander into the gap between the flap and the main part of the hook, and close the flap. Do not allow the end of the expander to slip out of the hook – this means that the forces and stresses acting on the HIDEOUT are too big and may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Even if the fabric is waterproof and vapor permeable intense use of the HIDEOUT may occur moisture inside. It can come from both condensed water vapor (dew point) and after prolonged contact of the material with water.
These are natural phenomena.
Each HIDEOUT comes with a repair patch in case something breaks.
Just clean and dry the damaged area.
Gently remove the adhesive surface protection and apply the patch.
Press down and wait 20 minutes – ready.
