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.

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 poles or sticks and 11 x 1m long cords 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.
