Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Flat Tarp

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a phenomenal product. Light, exactly what one would expect, and very strong. This is a great product. It does exactly what one would expect a flat tarp to do. Multiple tie outs for guylines. Extremely lightweight cuben fiber. Extremely strong. I've used this on multiple trips, for sun shade and rain protection. It pitches as one would expect — in any fashion you can imagine. If you make the pitch taut, it stays that way through wind, rain, etc.   I wish it were available in more sizes,… Full review

Warbonnet Superfly

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Umm it leaks?? Really? I see the price has gone up since 2011. I paid $140 from their webby. It's a good tarp except for one thing.  Umm it leaked first time I used it in ADK (that's kinda the point of it is to stay dry) from the stitching for the pullouts just below the ridgeline. So I emailed. Brandon responded right away. A for customer service. He told me to put some sylicone on the stitching. (WHAT? Not a mistake which would have been acceptable...but they know?) Again...Umm  at $140 I assume… Full review

Black Diamond Megamid

rated 5 of 5 stars Simply an outstanding shelter. Perfection. First purchased around 1986. Never owned a "tent" until going well above tree-line in snow for mountaineering. First Megamid lasted about 10-15-years. The zipper failed. My second Megamid was only recently replaced (only months ago). The inside waterproof lining began to fail allowing more water to breach the nylon skin. Still never a problem. Condensation and any similar water simply drains down the sides of the tent and seeps into the ground. This is… Full review

Wilderness Logics Tad Pole

rated 5 of 5 stars The Tad Pole is amazingly easy to use, very light, and most importantly waterproof. It covered my 9' hammock and kept me bone dry on a recent trip when the skies opened above me. This is an American made product from a small company, which I try to support whenever feasible. There are options (poles, additional pulls,etcetera) which I didn't use, but it's good to know they are available. UL backpackers will like the near weightlessness, and kayakers will like how it takes up virtually no space in… Full review

Six Moon Designs Haven Tarp & NetTent

rated 4 of 5 stars Two separate products that can work together or separately, this is a lightweight 2-person shelter system with full coverage and adequate space. The SMD Haven tarp and net tent are sold separately and can be used separately or together to create a lightweight 2-person shelter system that offers full coverage from the elements and adequate space. It is only available direct from the manufacturer, Six Moon Designs, a "cottage shop" that makes a variety of tarps, tents, packs, and raingear. I am not… Full review

Kelty Cabana

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great roomy shelter that will fit a family of 4. Perfect for the beach. Gets a little stuffy inside if oriented away from air flow. I purchased this model sun shelter to use at the beach. It is a very good shelter. It requires 3 tent poles to put up and can be assembled by one person in about 5 minutes. It can be more challenging on a windy day. The shelter is very roomy. Two adults and two small children and one small dog fit inside comfortably. It provides good shade. On days with little wind,… Full review

MSR E-Wing

rated 5 of 5 stars As a reverse (camping) snob, I had to break down and buy the E-Wing and now I take it to most outdoor events. If you're like me, you try to keep camping fun. An important ingredient in that equation is to keep costs down. I am very sensitive to those "gucci" campers who buy everything from REI or similar Cadillac outfitters. On a recent camping / kayaking trip, however, a fellow camper who shares my penchant for frugality surprised me by pulling from a tiny nylon bag, what I thought was a poncho… Full review

Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The tent was tested for size and space for two people, one being 5'10" the other 5'1", prior to outdoor setup. I have hammock camped in storms and used double wall tents in the past.  Expectations for the weekend of testing included showers and possible thunderstorms. Ease of setup even in the dark was relatively easy for one person. Used the provided v-stakes and a nearby handy boot for placement in the ground. The first night it rained and awoke to 2-3 inches of snow. The ground stakes in some… Full review

BearPaw Wilderness Designs Minimalist 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A good little net tent, but roomy enough for 1+gear or for two shoulder to shoulder. Needs external support—hiking poles or trees at the least, and must be staked out for proper pitching. Net tent only; does not include tarp/rain fly. My main reasons for getting this tent was that I wanted to have a shelter that would allow me to set up the tarp first if it were raining. I have a hammock system that works the same way, and it's come in handy before. I already owned a hammocking tarp (Warbonnet… Full review
