An oilcloth lean-to is quick & easy to construct, light to carry, versatile, cool in summer & reasonable warm in winter if you use a reflector fire. I do all my trekking in winter & only carry one wool blanket. Visibility is good in three directions, & you can feed the fire & cook your meals without having to leave this shelter.

Nice set up, I never thought to use oilskin before as I almost always have my old hootchie with me


Never underestimate the power of the tap, let it flow through you.

You could use a plain cotton or linen canvas as I have done in the past. I changed to the oilcloth because a close friend gave me one as a gift & it is lighter than my old canvas which one of my sons is using now.
