Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

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

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
