MSR E-Wing Shelter

The MSR E-Wing Ultralight Shelter is a more sophisticated version of an improvised poncho shelter. Small, lightweight and able to be configured in multiple ways and locations, the E-Wing could save your life some day. Because the E-Wing doubles as a poncho, it could be used for a lot more than just a shelter. See the US Army Survival Manual: FM 21-76 for more poncho uses and shelter types.

And I recommend any worst-case minds out there to get a copy of the survival manual - better to know it and not need it than to need it and not know it. As it is the Army's manual, it is all terrestrial information. If you end up lost at sea, you are out of luck.
