Tarp Tents for Backpacking ( 1 person)


Backpacking Tarp Tent 12 oz

Yes, it’s a tarp when you need it, and it’s a tent when you need it.  Its design allows it to fly over a hammock with the narrow end low over your feet and the wide end high over your head.  Or hang it as a dining fly.  Or stake it and tie it up as a tent shelter, with or without a pole.  That’s 14 ounces total. Then you have tent, stakes, and ropes with adjusting sliders and a coupe of rope hooks.  And when you need it you have a shelter from the wind, cold, rain, sleet or snow.
