Three eastern Germans give a nice lavvu too, based on a triangular base.
And it's a nice spark resistant bivvy bag or hot weather sleeping bag.

I used it a lot in southern France.

Arg! Don't do this to me. I like the idea of the lavu but already have my pocket money budget spent for the coming month.
Out of interest, how much does the lavu weigh?

1200g

;0)

3 Ă— 1200g = 3600g

I looked it up in the internet.
I'm not sure about the weight !!!

I can't reach it in the moment.

Usually I took only that, rucksack, wash kit , knife , matches, toilet paper, some cordage, and water bottles from the supermarket with me, when we went to France in summer times with the boy scout patrol.
And swimming breefs, not more! We went there with really empty rucksacks.

So the weight didn't interest me. I forgot it, because I didn't use it for trekking for long times.
I have a lot of similar stuff.

They cost unused in Germany currently 20€. (3×20=60€)

I think the pyramide is lower than the polish tent.

And I think the polish tent is better for our civil use. !!!!.

The NVA tent sheed was perfect for 6 boy scouts, who usually used it as summer sleeping bag, or large sun protection with 6 connected sheeds, or coat, rain coat, or tent. Perfect for France during the summer with such a group!

If you need a tent only I think the polish is better.

I was also matey. Stayed up until 2am watching Netflix and we've had our granddaughter since 10am (until 6pm)
Bit of a sore heed and knackered.
Been down the glen for a wee fire with her today. I'll stick the vid up later.
