Chub provides this Chub Outkast Shelter Overwrap to turn your summer refuge into an all-year, all-weather shelter. The overwrap not only closed off the open front section but it also traps a thin layer of air between it and the shelter that works to insulate the inside. It has the same very high waterproof rating of 10,000mm so you’ll have double the waterproofing protection, which was already much more than is needed, even in the UK. The wrap also gives you a door, which has lots of useful touches such as the ability to open it from either the top or the bottom, and a choice between fabric, transparent, or mosquito mesh panel inserts.
Chub shelters, bivvies, and brollies come with a special Back Draft Ventilation panel in the back, which helps promote good air flow in hot or damp conditions. This overwrap has its own panel too so this feature will continue to do its job. It also replicates the shelter’s rod support strap on the outside so your helping hand with fixing terminal tackle onto your rod is not lost.
It’s a snug fit onto the shelter, with dimensions of 2.6m x 2.25m x 1.38 (W x D x H) and it weighs just 3.4kg. The olive-green Chub Outkast Shelter Overwrap comes with hard-wearing T-pegs and an oversized carry bag and, in combination with the separately-sold shelter, represents year-round protection from the weather for carp or coarse angling.
