Agree to a certain degree that it should be freely accessible. It
depends on the context if this is given for a field shelter. In my
experience in areas with low population density you might find shelter
in a place like this e.g. when caught by bad weather. As always, its
up to the mapper. I wouldn't use amenity when the field shelter is
locked up.
