Tarp 5

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 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. In keeping with its minimalist mission, the Tarp 5 is made from our very light yet strong Kerlon 1000, used in 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 2500, our strongest fabric. 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.

Two Tarp 10s used together provide an impressive amount of coverage – perfect for group outings.

Tarp Pole

Tarp Pole 186 - 214 cm x 19.5 mm

$65

The 19.5 mm Tarp Pole is a simple, lightweight, standing-height pole designed for use with Tarps and other simple shelters (it works superbly with our Altai). It folds down to approximately 52.5 cm (20.7"), and, thanks to a two-part bottom section with spring-loaded buttons, the Tarp Pole can extend from 186 cm (73.2") to 214 cm (84.3") in 7 cm (2.8") increments. It also boasts a reversible, screw-in tip that can be used with fabric pockets (such as on the Altai), or with rings or loops (as on the Tarps).

Y-Pegs

Y-Peg

Y-Peg

$45

Our Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal. • 18 cm/7.1" • 16 g/0.6 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

V-Pegs

V-Peg

V-Peg

$30

Very light yet very strong, our V-Peg is made from hardened aluminum, and it has specifically engineered thick yet light spine and sides to prevent bending. Its "V" cross section provides a fine balance of penetration in hard ground and holding capability in looser soil. Anodized a highly visible gold, the V-peg also has an integrated string loop for easy removal from the ground. • 16 cm/6.3" • 11 g/0.4 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Y-Peg ULs

Y-Peg UL

Y-Peg UL

$40

Our lightest peg, the new, hardened aluminum Y-Peg UL has a “Y” cross-section similar to our Y-Peg, but in a smaller (and lighter) package. While not quite as robust as the larger Y-Peg, it offers a great balance of hard ground penetration and soft ground holding power. Its gold anodizing makes it highly visible, and the attached string loop makes it easier to pull it from the ground. • 15 cm/5.9" • 9.6 g/0.34 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow and Sand Pegs

$85

Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft – they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow – we developed our own. Made from hardened aluminum, our Snow Pegs are built to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion. • 31 cm x 3 cm/12.2" x 1.2" • 50 g/1.8 oz • Set of 6 pegs and XP carrying bag •
