The Vihe Loue 2 is a light-weight shelter which works extremely well with a camp fire in front of it. Loue 2 is similar in design and function to Vihe Loue I with an extra 40 cm high upright wall added to the base, making the available internal space significantly larger. It forms a spacious semicircle when set up and gives excellent protection against wind and rain.
Basically an open-sided shelter similar to half a tipi or kota. For a basic setup, pitch the apex at around 180 – 200 cm using a tree or other available pole, and fasten the base to the ground while using 40cm long sticks to support the side wall. Place the Loue so that the prevailing winds blow across the opening of the loue – rather than from behind or infront – so that smoke from your fire is taken away rather than creating any eddies or blowing directly into the shelter.
