All product features and measurement values, including tent weight and pole length, may vary somewhat from what is shown in our catalog, other printed items, and on our web site. Such differences can occur because of alterations in the design and production process and/or natural variations in the materials. Fabric dyes have natural variations, so the actual tent color may look slightly different from what is pictured here or on our website.

A tarp provides essential weather protection but still allows you to feel fully “outdoors.” In addition, a tarp can be used to create a breezy patio over your tent’s entrance, or as a kitchen away from your campsite for greater safety in bear country. Tarp use is nearly limitless, and they can be pitched with trekking poles, paddles or branches, and can be suspended from trees, as well.

Our smallest model, the new Tarp 5, is designed specifically to cover a single person while also providing extra room for gear. Its shape makes it easy to get into and out of, and it can be pitched fairly high off the ground for the full, airy, tarp experience, or with its edges nearly, or even fully, on the ground for a remarkably protective refuge from bad weather. Using a Bivanorak when sleeping under the Tarp 5 – or any of the Tarp models – adds both sleeping bag protection and an extra defense against bad weather (see page 78). In keeping with its minimalist mission, the Tarp 5 is made from our very light yet strong Kerlon 1000, used in some of our 3-season, Yellow Label tents, and comes with attached 2 mm guy lines.

The larger Tarp 10 and Tarp 20 have a more traditional rectangular shape. Both are available in a lighter UL version, made from our Kerlon 1200 fabric, used in our Red Label tents, and a heavier duty XP version, made from Kerlon SP, a very strong, silicone-coated polyester. Both come with attached 3 mm guy lines.

Designed for two person use, the Tarp 10 pairs wonderfully with our Mesh Ridge, our Mesh Box 10, and our Mesh Inner Tents. Any of these combinations are a lightweight – and bug free – choice for warmer weather trips. The Tarp 20 pairs with the Mesh Box 20, and is ideal for larger group use.

Any of our Tarps are excellent things to have with you on any hike: use one during a break as an out of the weather gathering spot, or as a “dining hall” at lunch or dinner. The Tarp 5 will provide shelter for one to two people, the Tarp 10 is a good choice for two to four hikers, and the Tarp 20 will easily cover larger groups.

A Tarp 10 over a tent provides extra sun protection and creates a great backcountry porch. The Tarp 20 is ideal on canoe trips, where it can be set up in a variety of ways to serve as the group gathering spot. As a shelter for one or two people a Tarp 10 can be configured in a my­riad of ways, and can be used in all seasons. As a shelter for one or two people a Tarp 10 can be configured in a my­riad of ways, and can be used in all seasons. Two Tarp 10s used together provide an impressive amount of coverage – perfect for group outings.
