Imprägniertes Moskitonetz zum Reisen

Travel mosquito net with impregnation

A quality travel mosquito net is an indispensable companion in tropical countries. Unfortunately, the most popular vacation destinations in South East Asia are often known for mosquitoes and other midges. It is therefore particularly important to protect yourself against dangerous diseases such as malaria or dengue fever.
An impregnated net offers additional protection and is therefore a must. Our Blue Edition mosquito nets are ideal for destinations with malaria and offer double protection thanks to the impregnation.

Tesa adhesive hooks

Not all accommodation is equipped with mounting options in the room. If there is no hook on the ceiling, it is always a good idea to have a few adhesive hooks from Tesa with you. These can be quickly attached above the bed and can be removed again without leaving any residue.

Packliste Backpacking Hüttenschlafsack

Hut sleeping bag

Depending on the nature of your trip, a hut sleeping bag can be useful in some accommodations. Especially if you are traveling on a low budget as a backpacker in Southeast Asia, it can often come in handy. The vast majority of accommodations offer a certain level of cleanliness, but sometimes you feel more comfortable in your own sleeping bag.

A cabin sleeping bag can give you extra protection from bed bugs or unsanitary conditions that can occur in some hostels. With the hut sleeping bag, you don't lie directly on the sheets, but in your own clean sleeping bag. The large pocket at the head end can also be used to cover your pillow.

A hut sleeping bag is light and compact and is ideal for travellers, especially backpackers, who have little space in their luggage.
