1P Cirriform Min Tarp - DCF

$395.00

Please note:
-The color of this tarp is 'white'. Some pictures show the tarp made from 'sage' colored DCF.

This "Minimal" version of the Cirriform takes a step back to YAMA's roots. It uses the original beak design to create a simpler, lighter tarp that provides superb wind shedding and reliable performance.

The Cirriform allows entry from the front or side. In rainy weather, however, please use only the front entry to prevent water from running into the sleeping area when you open the door. This tarp pairs perfectly with our Bug Bivy and 1P Bug Shelter.

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • Curvatures promote a taut, wind-shedding pitch.
  • Zippered front beak/door rolls completely out of the way.
  • Rear beak provides protection at the foot.
  • Durable, #5 waterproof zipper
  • Hang loops located along the ridge at the ends, center, and about 12" in from the foot.
  • Lineloc tensioners at tie-outs for easy pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.

Do I really need the longer length?

For the majority of people, we recommend the regular length option. The longer option adds 6" (~15cm) of length at the foot end of the tarp to better accommodate taller hikers and our longer inners. Please note that it will do nothing to increase headroom, and wind stability will be negatively impacted by a small amount. We usually only recommend the longer option for individuals over 6'-4", maybe 6'-3". When making a decision, please remember to factor in the loft of your sleeping bag/quilt and the length of the inner that you're using (eg. if you're using our reg. length bivy or Bug Shelter, there's no advantage gained with the longer Cirriform).


Notes:

  • We have discontinued the use of magnetic door ties on the Cirriform.
    There were some instances of the magnets picking up ferrous materials from the ground and causing premature wear on the fabric.
  • Some photos may show additional items that are not included. This product listing is for the tarp and items listed in the specifications only.
You are viewing the 'Min' version of the Cirriform. See the Standard version here.

Differences from standard version

Differences from standard version

  • No peak vent
  • No upper zipper pull or prop (for additional venting and easier pole access)
  • Single pointed front beak (rather than standard that splays out to two points)
  • Lacks underside hangloops at the corners (these have been added back as of Jan. 2022)
    (These loops are located several inches up the seams from the four main corners. They provide additional options for suspending items like bivy floors, especially when the tarp is pitched low.)

Key advantages of Min. version

  • Lower weight
  • Easier pitch
  • Requires fewer stakes
  • Greater variability in pitch widths
    (the simpler beaks allows for more flexibility in how wide or narrow you can pitch the tarp)
  • Overall simpler design

Advantages of the Standard version

  • Better/More venting options
  • Larger and more usable vestibule space

Tarp weight: ~8.8 oz | ~250g

Itemized weight:

  • Tarp (Reg. Length): 8.8 oz | 250g
  • Tarp (Long Length): 8.6 oz | 244g (see Note 2 below)

    (Average weight of waste from in-house manufacturing; mostly tape backing)
  • Total Packaged Weight: ~10.5 oz | ~298g
  • Note 1: Some rigging can be omitted or changed to reduce weight.
  • Note 2: The average weight for the longer Cirriforms is coming in about 0.2 oz LESS than the average weight for the regular length. We have not identified a reason for this. Our best guess is that it's due to fluctuations that sometimes happen between the different rolls of material/DCF.

Rigging Detail:

  • Reflective guyline: 0.9 oz | 25.6g
  • Fastline Clip (1): 0.13 oz | 3.6g
  • Tensionlock Tensioners (9): 0.36 oz | 10.2g

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: What is the "Inactive Product" Category?

A: Products in the "Inactive Product" category are not expected to be available any time soon. While I intend to offer them again, they are 'on-hold' indefinitely so that we can focus attention on other products.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: Our capacity is very limited, and we can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. We only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help us to grow and to serve you better in the long term. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and opens up hiring opportunities.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
