Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

Appy Trails Mark V

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight and a lot of room. I got this as a way of reducing my load on summer-friendly climate trips.. Well, I bought too much tent. This thing is big, and not just big but with an extraordinarily high peak, something like 5' high at the door. The tent is essentially a lightweight version of a tent once used by the Boy Scouts for events like Piedmont. It requires either the lightweight pole that is supplied or a trekking pole. The foot end requires a 12" aluminum rod that keeps that end of the… Full review

YAMA Mountain Gear Cirriform Tarp 1P - 0.8 oz Dyneema

rated 5 of 5 stars Versatile quality, handmade, full weather protection in a sleek design. I purchased the DW Cirriform in .8 cuben but use the tarp alone during the shoulder season and have grown to love the versatility of the entire kit. I was hesitant to switch to cuben/dynemma after only using sil shelters for so long, but the weight savings in this piece while still having full weather protection from anything that nature throws your way is exhilarating!  Gen at Yama is great to work with and understanding of… Full review

Bushcraft Outfitters 10' x 10' Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars A "bomb-proof" tarp best used as a hammock or ground shelter. Not UL, but what you give up in weight, you gain in versatility and durability. I recommend it as a high-quality, Made in the USA product offered at a reasonable cost. I've owned the coyote version of this tarp for the past several years, and I've used it for overnight ground shelters and hammock cover in the Eastern U.S. Hammock Shelter Included Stuff Sack Tautly-pitched in A-frame Corner tab tie-out The difficulty of setup depends on… Full review

DD Hammocks Tarp 3x3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very versatile!! I've had my tarp set up in a number of places—windy mountain tops, forest and woodland, lakesides, and even in the urban city sprawl. The DD 3x3 tarp is bigger enough and has enough guides to fit anywhere. Great product. Great price. The DD 3x3 tarp is a very strong but lightweight tarp that can be set up in any environment to keep you out of the weather. It's worthwhile playing around with it before you head out and practice makes perfect with this tarp and you will soon find… Full review

Paria Sanctuary SilTarp

rated 4 of 5 stars Very light, strong, and compact tarp. I bought this tarp kit because it was the same price ($79.99) as other tarps I'd seen, and this kit comes with guy lines and stakes, all in a sil nylon bag. The guy lines are 9 feet long (there are 6 of them) so you can adjust the hanging of the tarp in a variety of ways.  After I learned how to properly hang the tarp over a hammock, this one hangs quickly and easily. The only thing I would like to have is a tab on the side, right in the middle. There are four… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Flat Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an ultralight, absolutely waterproof tarp for multiple day hikes. It is of very good quality and it fits into the storage bag it comes with. I replaced the guy lines, and the 8'x10' flat tarp now weighs 320g including the stuff sack without stakes. I have used this tarp on four multi-day hiking trips in the Dolomites/Italy and it shows no wear. I use it with the Katabatic Gear Bristlecone Bivy, and there has never been any condensation on the bivy. It is easy to set up. I always use my trekking… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear UltaMid 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Ultra light, roomy, sturdy shelter for bug-free trips. I won't post a bunch of pictures because the other review of this shelter has a bunch of great pics. The Ultamid 2 is a two-person shelter, and although there is a good amount of room for two, I have used it only as a solo shelter for me and sometimes with my dog. There is a huge amount of room for one person for the weight of less than almost all solo tents. You have the pole in the middle to contend with (unless you suspend it from a tree),… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters HouseFly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars The ENO Housefly Rain Tarp is a large hammock shelter designed to provide full coverage with the added benefit of overlapping doors that provide full wind and weather protection with the added convenience of buckles to stow the doors out of the way when not needed. I was looking to assemble my first hammock system and decided that the ENO HouseFly offered the most ready to go, factory provided, features that would expedite my entry into the world of hammock camping. The HouseFly is 10' 6" X 10'… Full review

Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

rated 4 of 5 stars The Kelty Noah 12 is a great tarp for two hammocks or a lot of room for one. It's roomy and can hold its own in a downpour and keeps you dry when the rain sets in. I would recommend this to everyone. The Kelty Noah's Tarp 12 is a great tarp for two hammocks or a lot of room for one hammock. The tarp has plenty of tie-down points for any configuration that you want. I have used this in a straight downpour rainstorm and it kept me and a friend dry the whole time. One thing that I would change on it… Full review
