Recent Tarp/Shelter Reviews

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

Sea to Summit Escapist 15D Tarp

rated 4 of 5 stars A non-free standing shelter by design that works well with a variety of conditions and platforms. It can be pitched with a pair of trekking poles or in between two trees. It's a versatile shelter that can be used as a ground shelter or even as a hammock tarp. Since this is a modular system, the weight can be easily be distributed between two people. Best used for 3-season backpacking and can be used as a solo or 2-person shelter. Manufacturer Specs: http://www.seatosummit.com.au/products/bug-protection/escapist/… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters Housefly Rain Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars 4 words, Will keep you dry. The Eagles Nest HouseFly is probably one if the best investments I've made to date in my camping gear. I spent 14 days in the Daniel Boone National Forest and it really proved itself worthy of packing. The first night out it rained, not just your mother's everyday light shower, it poured buckets. I wasn't sure if the ENO HouseFly would be up for the job. But to my surprise, me and my gear stayed perfectly dry. I was truly amazed. It's much lighter than most of the… Full review

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
