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

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
