Traditional Finnish design, the Loue shelter is light weight, forms a spacious semicircle when set up, and functions extremely well with a camp fire in front of it.

Vihe Loue 1 represents the traditional Finnish design, is light in weight and forms a spacious semicircle when set up. Loue 1 is at its best with a camp fire set in front of it, heating the shelter and as the material reflects the light and heat, the circulating warmth makes the shelter even comfier.

The darts attached to the rear seams help keep the shelter taut to provide extra internal space and excellent protection against wind and rain. As a handy feature, two or three Vihe Loue 1′s can be combined to form a larger, enclosed tipi or Finnish kota-type of shelter.

Basically an open-sided shelter similar to half a tipi or kota. For a basic setup, pitch the apex at around 150 – 180 cm using a tree or other available pole, and fasten the base to the ground. 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.

    Absolutely fantastic! Kept me protected from the wind and warm from my small fire. I will definitely consider buying a second to use them together.
