Picking this tarp up while on the PCT, I have been nothing but pleased with it. I use it in combination with a water-resistant bivy and quilt. It has endured rain and snow while leaving plenty of room under cover out of the elements. The design, materials, and craftsmanship are top-notch, and I certainly look forward to updating my gear with Gossamer Gear products in the future.
If you're looking for the lightest two person tarp on the market, your search is over! Building off the successful introduction of the Spinnshelter in 2004, the Gossamer Gear design team went to work developing a thru-hike worthy two person shelter that would be strong, storm-proof, versatile and most importantly ULTRALIGHT.
At a scant 8 oz (227 g), the SpinnTwinn offers all the benefits of a conventional 8' x 10' (244 x 305 cm) silnylon tarp with some very desirable added benefits. Use for three-season backpacking, either for one person who is sloppy or likes to spread out, or for two.
