Snugpak Stasha - Quite simply a modern Basha or Tarp
It is a new and improved concept of the original British Basha and the very popular Snugpak All Weather Shelter. But unlike the bulkier British Basha and All Weather Shelter the Stasha was made with newer lighter weight materials so as to achieve its impressive pack size. Because of its remarkable size it can be stashed away in a BDU cargo pants pocket, a backpack, a fanny pack, go bag and so on. It is, simply stated, an improved, simple, effective shelter that will aid in protection from the elements.
It has looped webbing and grommets in each corner so it can be staked out or attached with guy ropes, which are provided. It comes with 4 guy ropes to allow it to be configured a number of ways. Down two opposite sides are plastic snaps which can allow it to be folded and snapped together to make an improvised bivvi. It can also be used as an impromptu emergency shelter should the need arise. For the prepared person who doesn't want to get caught out in the elements.
It is generously sized at 160cm x 245cm (64" x 98") but will still fit in your pocket when packed away.

The Stasha is more compact and light than I expect. It comes with about 8 meters of paracord and can fit in a cargo pocket or opsvest pouch, or in my case in my 30l pack. The Stasha folded out is large enough to keep me, my husky and my pack dry. Even though it's thin it is a lot more waterproof than I expected. You can press two together to make a two person cover with your buddy. For the price a very good emergency shelter option if you're concerned about size and weight.
