Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

Brooks-Range Ultralite Solo Tarp

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This tarp does not hold up, and does not keep a single word promised in the information from Brooks-Range. I have had this tarp for two years. I've only used it twice. Once on one winter hike to cover up the lean-to, and once on a hike in the Whites in the month of August. I was using it in combination with my Rab eVent bivy that I normally only use during the winter. The tarp is very small for 1 person and it can only just be done under perfect conditions. I was setting camp at the Liberty Springs… Full review

MSR OutfitterWing

rated 4.5 of 5 stars MSR recently made this product much better by adding the 8 foot poles to their inventory. By adding these poles to the wing you have a virtual palace of a work area to cover a picnic table or camp kitchen. I use the 12" type stakes that Cabela's sells for its outfitter series tents and it makes for a very solid shelter. It is great for group outtings for shade and rain protection. I have used this car camping several times and it works very well. The other uses also apply. It is definitely either… Full review

Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT

rated 4 of 5 stars Basic shelter at a basic price. The Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT sets up with trekking poles, which means it is light, about 2 pounds, and packs into a small, compressible bag. There is plenty of room inside for two hikers and their gear. At just over a hundred dollars it costs much less than most options on the market. The I set the the shelter up it took for ever and was frustrating. This is what you get from reading the instructions on the side of the stuff bag. I watched Mountainsmith's… Full review

Hennessy Hammock Expedition Asym Zip

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent all-in-one hammock system that won't break the bank. A little on the heavy side, and improved with some slight modifications. Overall a great introduction into the world of hanging. Protects from the elements, and is ideal for camping, hiking in most of the Northern hemisphere. I recommend the Hennessy hammock system to anyone looking for a full on 3-4 season hammock/shelter system and that spends a good amount of time in areas with trees. Ahhh Hammocks! Providing me with the best nights'… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters Fast Fly Rain Tarp

rated 3 of 5 stars A tarp that is quick to deploy and offers an inventive tightening system. However, it is poorly cut and does not stretch flat at the ridge/crown due to the unusual tie out points. I don't recommend it, unless you can find a deal. Testing Parameters: The ENO Fast Fly was tested for a full week in Shawnee National Forest in April 2014. Heavy rains and thunderstorms were present on two nights of the trip. It has since been used by my kids on a few weekend camping trips. [When God sees me grab camping… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ProFly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars This tarp provides great coverage. It kept me dry on one of the most rainy weekends. Solid investment for anyone using the ENO hammock system. Has an excellent balance between footprint and coverage, better than that of ENO's other rain flies (Dry Fly and Fast Fly). I like how it is a completely separate unit as well; this allows for it to be more than just a rain fly for your tent. I have used it several times for a sheltered work station and it is much better than hanging around in a tent for… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ProFly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars Quick coverage when you need it. Packs small and lightweight. Can be set up for many situations. The ENO ProFly is a lightweight solution for keeping dry and out of the rain and sun when backpacking. Setup is a breeze and can be done with tent stakes or tied off on surrounding trees for a quick place to get out of the sun or staked in an inverted V to get you out of whatever mother nature can throw at you. Rain, snow, doesn't matter. The trap is made to withstand just about anything and with proper… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ProFly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars Compact and lightweight. Keeps water off and away from you extremely well. Most tarps will leak a little on the inside if you run your hand across it due to condensation, but as much as I have used this with my hammock backpacking, I've never once had an issue with seeping thru. Doesn't take up hardly any room in my pack and folds up easily in the bag to pack away when you're finished using it. Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ProFly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars Well constructed and fairly lightweight. Stay dry with this ProFly. This tarp is well constructed and fairly lightweight. I especially appreciate the line locks, which make is easy to tighten up the tarp and secure it easily without extra needless tie downs to carry. The size of this tarp will create ample coverage for ENO hammocks and most others. Cover while hammock camping is really where it shines, but it can serve many uses with a little creativity. Stay dry and in the shade with this ProFly. Full review
