Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

Hyperlite Mountain Gear UltaMid 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralite secure shelter. I've long been a fan of floorless single wall shelters. To me the advantages of space per weight, dry pitch, flexibility of just how much to bring along, tracking dirt in onto...the ground, more than offset the disadvantages of fussier pitch, condensation control, and BYO bug protection. I've been a fan of pyramid tents since I first got a Chouinard MegaMid. The Ultamids from HMG are what the MegaMid wanted to be. The UM 2 is a pretty easy pitch since it has a rectangular… Full review

Appy Trails Mark III

rated 4 of 5 stars Cost-effective lightweight shelter for 1+ The AT MKIII could conceivably shelter three people, but not any of their gear. It is even a bit cozy for two, but is spacious bordering on luxurious for one. Light weight (21.25 oz / 602 g + 4.65 oz / 132 g for the included pole set) makes this a viable solo option. I have a deep-seated distrust of grommets, especially if it's possible that tension could be pulled in any direction other than exactly parallel to the fabric. I would never put a tent stake… Full review

UGQ SilPoly Rectangular Cat Cut Tarp (10x12)

rated 5 of 5 stars Light silicone coated polyester panels held together with sewn tape edges and ridge line make this tarp an easy to carry, yet sturdy shelter. Well designed and constructed by a self described cottage company located in Michigan well known in the hammock community for their quilts.   Drying out after a storm at the 13 Falls camp in the Pemi with some laundry on the line. Underground Quilt (UGQ going forward) is a small cottage maker of quilts and other hammock centric gear based in Jackson, Mississippi. Full review

Cooke Custom Sewing 1.9oz Silicone Tundra Tarp

rated 4 of 5 stars Sturdy materials well put together make the Tundra Tarp perfect for applications where lighter materials might be a liability. Custom made in two weights (1.1 oz and 1.9 oz) and a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors Cooke gives you a lot of options to fit your needs. The numerous tie out loops and flat shape let you get really creative in your setup with lots of options at your disposal. Cooke Custom Sewing is a small family business well known in the paddling community for their shelters, packbags,… Full review

Gossamer Gear SpinnShelter

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight and very weatherproof tarp. Late to the dance with my Spinnshelter. Got it used on eBay. Weight is 8 ounces on my scale. Can use trekking poles to pitch, sticks, or aftermarket poles. I bought two used for around 20 bucks. The tarp is made of spinnaker cloth—light and strong. I pitch with Groundhogs—use Groundhogs for everything!!!! I bought a Dimma Bivy from Borah to hang under it, but one night just slept in my sleeping bag on a ground cloth. The tarp bivy combo was under 20 ounces. Full review

Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp Square

rated 5 of 5 stars This tarp is fantastic. This tarp is fantastic. Very well made and has a ton of tie outs, a lightweight tarp. Stitching is top notch. Rained for four days and never saw a drop. Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ProFly Rain Tarp

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Too small to be effective and convenient. I received an ENO ProFly as a gift. Fortunately, the giver purchased it from a source with a generous return policy, as it is the only item I have ever returned after use because I found it unsatisfactory. The ProFly comes in its own stuff sack, and is very easy to set up neatly and tightly. All the lines are pre-attached with tensioning devices on the guy lines, and the cut of the tarp makes it easy to get it smooth and tight. The material and workmanship… Full review

Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp Square

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good value, excellent quality 10x10 ft/ 3x3 m square sil tarp. Ideal for car campers, backpackers who don’t mind trading a little more weight for greater coverage and durability, hammockers who want lots of coverage, or anyone else in need of a highly configurable, durable tarp with lots of webbing loop tie-outs (19 of them!). Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp--Square Aqua Quest is a company that has been making waterproof gear since 1994. The company bills itself as “The World Leader in Waterproof.”… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Cot Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars Great idea for a lightweight shelter for cot sleepers. This is a very well designed and constructed piece of gear. It is simple to set up and very compact when packed. It is light enough to pack in with you if you are so inclined. The inner screen tent can be set up without the fly for protection from bugs with great ventilation. The mesh screen continues around the bottom of the tent to rest on the surface of the cot and provide a fully enclosed space. The fly is designed to work only with the… Full review
