A TARP PROVIDES ESSENTIAL weather protection but still allows you to feel fully “outdoors.” In addition, a tarp can be used to create a breezy patio over your tent’s entrance, or as a kitchen away from your campsite for greater safety in bear country. Tarp use is nearly limitless, and they can be pitched with trekking poles, paddles or branches, and can be suspended from trees, as well.
The Tarp 20 has a traditional rectangular shape. The lighter UL version is made from our Kerlon 1200 fabric, used in our Red Label tents. It comes with attached 3 mm guy lines.
The Tarp 20 pairs with the Mesh Box 20, and is ideal for larger group use.
Any of our Tarps are excellent things to have with you on any hike: use one during a break as an out of the weather gathering spot, or as a “dining hall” at lunch or dinner. The Tarp 20 will easily cover larger groups.

A TARP PROVIDES essential weather protection but still allows you to feel fully "outdoors." Indeed, there are those who prefer tarp camping, in all weather conditions, precisely because of that feeling. And how much of that "feeling" you indulge in is up to you, since our tarp's "shape" is limited only by imagination and pitching materials. A tarp can also add a new dimension to tent camping: Pitch a tarp over the tent's entrance, and you have a breezy patio, or build a tarp kitchen away from your campsite for greater safety in bear country. Hilleberg tarps come in two sizes, Tarp 10 and 20, designed for solo or two person, and group use, respectively. Each is available in both a super light UL and a heavy duty XP version. The former is made from our Kerlon 1200, and the latter from Kerlon SP. Both are tremendously strong yet lightweight, silicone-coated fabrics, but where the Kerlon 1200 is nylon, the SP is polyester. On all models, the attachment rings have long guy lines with line runners on them. In addition, the stuff bag is cleverly integrated into the Tarp itself, both saving weight and allowing quicker deployment and repacking.
