If you’ve ever war-gamed some of your survival strategies in the wilderness, there’s a good chance that you’ve run into several challenges with your gear, especially in regards to space and weight. There’s only so much you can carry on your back, and if you take too much you’ll be completely exhausted in no time. So it’s important to cut down the size and weight of your gear in any way you can, while still maintaining a diverse selection of survival tools.
However, if there’s on thing that tends to dominate both the space and the weight of your camping/bug out bag, it’s probably your shelter. Between the tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad, you might have anywhere between 25-50% of your carry weight dedicated to sheltering. Fortunately there are certain technologies on horizon that may be poised to replace the traditional tent/sleeping bag combo with something significantly lighter.
