Here's what other sites are saying:
Your ultralight shelter setup is pretty much useless when it's blackfly season, or at least it was until the Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo II Insert came along. This ultralight, fully-enclosed insert features no-see-um mesh canopy and a bathtub floor to protect against biting insects, crawling bugs, and soggy ground. Crafted from Dyneema fabric, the bathtub floor is tough and waterproof, yet incredibly lightweight and highly packable. This insert really shines when paired with Hyperlite's Echo II or Flat tarps, creating a fully-enclosed and waterproof shelter that weighs in at less than two pounds for the entire package.
Designed for passionate, goal-oriented thru hikers and backpackers, the Echo II Tarp provides the ultimate in lightweight shelter versatility. With its tight catenary cut, sealed ridgeline and double reinforced tie-outs, this ultralight tarp tent is perfect for skilled adventurers accustomed to sleeping directly on the ground. It provides almost 70 square feet of coverage, but weighs less than a glass of water. Pitch it at varying heights and angles using hiking or tent poles or even tie it out to trees. Set up takes two to five minutes. Available in Classic White or Spruce Green. Stakes sold separately.
