"The Zeltbahn is one half of a small tent, consisting of a square-shaped piece of canvas with 32 opposing pairs of buttons. The Zeltbahn also had small cord loops sewn onto it, through which the tent ropes were threaded so that they could tie around the neck and waist when using the Zeltbahn as a rain cape. Zelts can be assembled in combinations of 2 or more to make huge “Boar’s Nests.” The Boar's Nest is an oversized covering composed of multiple Zelts."

Berg Heil!
