Ultralight Versatility!
We use our tarp both for a fly on our smaller tent insert and as a cooking shelter with our Ultamid 4. A versatile piece of well made, ultralight gear, so quick to pitch in a hurry on trail to provide a quick rain shelter or windbreak for lunch. We love it!!

Everything I Hoped For
It's pricey, but this is an excellent shelter. Great construction - I cinched down a serious trucker's hitch and cheaper tarps would have torn on the tension. Exceptionally light and compact. My new favorite shelter!

Great Quality!
Durable, light, and effective; everything you come to expect from this outstanding company. As close to perfect as you can come. I purchased the 8' by 10'. The extra weight is negligible and the extra space is definitely worth it.

Lightening up.

Wanted to cut some weight in my pack by stop carrying a tent. But hiking in the PNW without one is a great way to spend a wet night.

Enter the Flat Tarp. Weighs a pound (2.5 lbs less than my tent), and keeps me dry in all but the worst storms.

Doesn’t take up much space in my pack either. Love it.

Bomber!

I spent 8 weeks bushwhacking and backpacking throughout Alaska. This thing held up valiantly and kept us dry throughout the entire process. The guy lines work fantastically, making it super easy to set up on the fly and within a matter of minutes. Considering the weight, I may replace my tent with a tarp system!
