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

Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a well made, durable and easy to pack tarp made of tightly woven silicone impregnated nylon. It is best used as hammock cover, yet can be pitched in many configurations. I've not used it with an interior support, but only pitched with its built in loops. Because of its size, it can be a complete shelter solution for yourself, your gear, and your pet. I would recommend this to any but an ultralight hiker. I've used this tarp in three configurations, tailored for the environment... hammock… Full review

Kelty Noah's Tarp 9

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An inexpensive ripstop nylon tarp appropriate for shade for three to four people or as a shelter for one or two people. I went on a camping trip with a friend and he pulled out his Kelty Noah Tarp 16 (16 x 16). It worked out so well for our group, that when I got home I went online and bought the Kelty Noah Tarp 9 (9 x 9) for myself. This tarp has quality construction, is relatively inexpensive and versatile. I've only used my tarp twice, but both times I put the tarp to the test. It does not… Full review

Terra Nova Adventure Tarp 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Definitely a quality product with great stitching and fine materials. Sized just right for my needs. I really appreciate the size of this tarp, sufficient to set up in a number of configurations. If they only put more grommets it would make it the best tarp ever. Packed mine with 50ft of guy line and 6 stakes to do just about anything I want to with it. Used mine as a lean-to using motorcycle as high point. Works just great.  Full review

Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Gatewood Cape is a versatile and clever piece of gear that serves multiple functions so saves a lot of weight and packing volume both by using ultralight materials and by reducing your overall gear item count. It takes the place of some of the larger and heavier items in your pack—your shelter, your rainwear, and your pack cover. This is a review of the Gatewood Cape from Six Moon Designs. SMD is a cottage gear company in Oregon that makes ultralight, high quality shelters and backpacks. I… Full review

MSR E-Wing

rated 5 of 5 stars Small and light emergency tarp. Have a previous generation of e-wing, the one without rand and smaller. I use it as emergency shelter in my kayak. I had to seal the seams, but after that it is waterproof and incredibly small. Packs in own supplied stuff bag, not in the portion it was originally packed (that would be impossible to fit after unpacking) but into bigger portion that is attached to it. I can fit four Mountain Hardwear sand anchors, 6 V stakes, some rope with Nite Ize figure 9, and after… Full review

Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

rated 4 of 5 stars I got this tarp as a rain fly for my hammock, but found many other uses as well. I got this tarp as rain fly for my hammock. Our Boy Scout Troop went to bike ride the Va. Creeper Trail. It rained on our last night and all day Sunday. All the gear I had on the ground and my boots stayed dry. My son's gear got soaked as well as all the other Scouts who had smaller rain fly. The 12x12 was big enough that eight of us used my tarp to stay dry and cook at the edges of the tarp. The lunch style bag it… Full review

UnderGround Quilts Winter Dream

rated 5 of 5 stars The Winter Dream offers superior protection from the elements for hammock campers. Closing the doors cuts the wind and creates a cozy, dry, happy space from which one may enjoy sitting out the storm. UnderGround Quilts Outdoor Equipment is one of my favorite cottage industry suppliers. I have two hammock under quilts, one Renegade top quilt, and five different tarps from UGQ. All feature top notch quality in every stitch. This review is intended to be about the Winter Dream tarp.  It should be… Full review

Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mountain Shelter LT is simple, pretty easy to set up, and great for non-winter backpacking. It is a single-walled, floorless shelter, so it is prone to condensation. It has been very durable and dependable for me in wind and rain in the Colorado Rockies. It isn't the lightest option, but it is an amazing value. Setup: Like most floorless shelters, this one takes some practice to get where it looks nice and taut. Trekking poles are required for setup. I really like that the shelter has a label… Full review
