New Emergency Shelters have Arrived!

I know it's been a long hot summer but winter is right around the corner and now is the time to start thinking about your winter paddling gear. Sea Kayak Carolina is ready to assist you with all your winter paddling needs.

Speaking of winter paddling, I wanted to let you all know about an awesome new piece of gear we just got in. The Tera Nova Bothy. It is an extremely lightweight and packable emergency shelter.

They are indispensable if you participate in any outdoor activity. Originally designed in response to the need for an inexpensive, lightweight shelter, Bothy bags are increasingly used by mountain rescue teams, outdoor centres and youth groups as emergency shelters. They can be a lifesaver if you have a cold wet hypothermic paddler that you need to warm up in a hurry.

They also can also provide a simple shelter for lunch stops.

Bothy bags are made from ripstop nylon and are windproof, highly water resistant and very strong.

- Creates a warm internal microclimate
- Durable waterproof seats
- 'UV - clear' windows to view the weather outside!
- Roof attachment for walking pole
- Two, four, eight and twelve person models available
