Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The 3-season, 3-person Origami 3 Tarp from Sierra Designs fills every niche, from a full-coverage backpacking shelter in the wilderness to an airy sunshade at the beach. Distinctive design joins 5 equilateral triangles to create a strong, versatile and reliable shelter. DAC Pressfit(R) telescoping pole lets you pitch the Origami taller for more headroom or lower for wider coverage. Each corner can be staked down for more coverage or tied up to allow easy access or more ventilation. Multiple guyout and stake-out points help the Origami tarp withstand gusty winds and adapt to changing weather conditions. Zippered door can be closed, rolled open or tied out as an awning. Nylon fabric offers waterproofness and excellent UV protection thanks to a dual coating: silicone on the outside, polyurethane on the inside. The Sierra Designs Origami 3 Tarp Comes with stakes, guylines, tighteners and stuff sacks.


For summer or winter minimalist backpacking adventures, the Sierra Designgs Origami 3 Tarp is the answer. With the floor sold separately, trekkers can choose to enjoy the feel of the earth beneath them on clear evenings or not. Floor or no floor, no matter which way you slice it, the Origami is more for those along the lines of the "naturalist" movement.

Set up the Sierra Designs Origami Tarp for use as your primary shelter in all types of terrain. The Origami can be used as a backcountry shelter when you're hiking or going after a major peak. A pyramid design sheds water and snow, and one center pole maintains structure in high winds so the Origami is versatile for backcountry travel all year long.
