#3 Not so costly, as I expected, to be honest:
A bag weighing 230 kilograms (approximately 500 pounds) inflates into a shelter with 16 square meters (172 square feet) of floor space. Cost is estimated at £1,100 ($2,100)

Great but it lacks windows. I think it should be customized with windows before being solidified.

U.N., rescues teams all around the word should buy some of these in advance!

It last ten years, protects against fire and gunfire... Good ideas.

One entrance... All one needs for destruction is a smoke grenade and a piece of pipe.

#11 Actually it has locking security doors at each end and it really is designed to be earth or sand covered for better thermal protection. This seems to be a great product for miltary and civilian use.

Wow, I work for the Australian defence force and this seems like a really good idea. Wondering how hard it would be to remove it when you are finished with it?

My friend just come back from the 'Sandpit' and they were camping in swags in a captured taliban bunker and three months later they realised there were a hundred tonnes of munitions hidden underneath the ground where they were camping. There must be explosives buried everywhere over there.

These shelters would beat the hell out of swags, the freezing conditions at night and the enemy fire over the walls.

#7 Check your facts.

You can't check the price unless you make an official inquiry.

Also, there are 3 different versions, each weighing differently - the lightest one being some 1500 kilograms. It indeed can be supplied as batched roles, each weighing less but the total product is much more then 230 kilograms.
