Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

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

GoLite Hex 3 Shelter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hex (no longer available) and update ShangriLa (can still find it) is a great adaptable shelter to accommodate multiple living things (people, dogs, cats ...). Nice lightweight, adaptable shelter. Gap between silylon fly and sturdy (but not overdesigned) floor  can be adjusted to admit or reject air flow at bottom, to accommodate a variety of weather. It's durable enough to shed many weather conditions (wind to a point, rain, light snow). The floor is either a plain floor or a "bug nest," which… Full review

Quest (Dick's) 10x10 Sun Shelter

rated 0.5 of 5 stars We had are Quest sun shelter for two months. Most of the seam ripped. We paid $179. Waste of money. Don't buy this product. This shelter is junk. Don't buy it. Full review

ZPacks Triplex

rated 5 of 5 stars The ZPacks Triplex tent combines wonderfully lightweight and compact packing with roominess for two (and adequate for three). It would work very well for a solo hiker as well given its light weight. It appears to be plenty durable for extended hikes such as the long thru-hiking trails. While during sunny days, the inside of the tent got somewhat warm, the thorough ventilation kept this tolerable (you should be on the trail hiking then, anyway), and provided plenty of dry shelter during the huge… Full review

NEMO Hunker 2P

rated 3 of 5 stars Well built, but incredibly small. This shelter seems to be well built and of good quality. I purchased this with the expectation that I would use it in the event of an unplanned overnight stay or getting caught in a bad storm for a few hours. While I believe you could easily ride out a short storm with this shelter, which is apparently one of its main purposes, It would not work well for emergency overnight stays. The dimensions, even though they may be accurate, are very deceiving. You will not… Full review

Kelty Noah's Tarp 12

rated 4 of 5 stars The Kelty Noah 12 is a huge tarp perfect for year round use, if you are not worried about weight. It can be set up in many different configurations and has plenty of tie-out points. I bought this Kelty Noah 12 used for use over my hammock when backpacking. It provides more than enough cover for my hammock and gear to be kept out of the elements. I've even used it to cover my hammock and daughters 1-person tent while out camping and it provided plenty of coverage. I mostly use this on a diagonal… Full review

Wiggy's Freedom Shelter

rated 4 of 5 stars I own two Wiggy's bags, a bivy sack, a rain jacket, and six ecotats made by Wiggy's. All are over built and what I would call BET YOUR LIFE GEAR. The temp ratings tend to be very conservative. The #10 YKK zippers are bulky but built to last. I would not hesitate to buy Wiggy's products or give them to loved ones; they are that good. The Freedom shelter (ecotat) is a very versatile item in that it is a 4-season, 1-person tent, poncho, bivy sack, sit shelter, great coat, tarp etc. Item is very well… Full review

DD Hammocks Tarp 3x3

rated 5 of 5 stars One of the best tarps on the market. Check out the review on Youtube. Have fun. Here you can watch the review. Have fun. Full review

HammockGear Standard Cuben Fiber Tarp with Doors

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultra light, ultra coverage that even wind driven sideways rain can't penetrate! I've been camping all my life, so I know what it is like to sleep in a tent...on the ground, on a cot, on a ground pad. Then I discovered that hammocks weren't just for the backyard. Then I discovered they're lighter than most backpacking tents.  And that they don't offer much protection from the elements by themselves. Step in the myriad tarps used with hammocks. Sure, you could use a typical fiberglass tarp from… Full review
