User Review: Kelty Noah's Tarp 12
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
A must have for group outings — will keep you dry and give you a great common area to hang out under on wet and/or windy days.
- Keeps You Dry
I've had a few tents in my day that I've woken up to water dripping on my face, but I tell you I've never got wet under my Noah's Tarp. This thing is so versatile too.
I was hiking last fall on the Manistee River Trail an awful day in late October — with rain, 30 mile/hour wind gusts, and bitingly bone cold. I hung this up and it held strong all night long and kept rain off my face.
It's kind of a luxury item for a campsite but I brought it up to Hoist Lakes Foot Travel Area in Northern Michigan this past September for a weekend where it rained more than it didn't and this thing was great for keeping our common area dry. We cooked and ate breakfast under it, hung out, kept the wood dry and our gear.
I recommend purchasing and using some reflective cordage with it because it comes with black cordage that is easy to trip over.
