Please note that the slate color is slightly darker than that shown in the photos.

There's something special about sitting under your tarp as raindrops fall around you. This tarp tapers in width to provide more coverage where you need it and less where you don't. Catenary curves on the ridge and edges help produce a wind-shedding, taut pitch in the classic a-frame configuration.

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • SilPoly fabric won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • SilPoly fabric has lower water retention than SilNylon.
  • Catenary cuts for a taut pitch.
  • Great for partnering with your bivy or our 1P Bug Shelter.
  • Lineloc tensioners at tie-outs ease pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.
  • Made from recycled fabric.

Now available with storm doors! For extra protection, this tarp is now available with storm doors for the front, and/or rear. See the storm door tab for more info.

Perimeter tie-outs are located at each end of the ridge (2), the corners (4), and the midpoints of each side (2). There are hang loops located at each end of the ridge (2), the middle of the ridge (1), and about 14" in on the ridge from the head end (1). There is an additional tie-out on the ridge about 14" in from the narrow end to allow the option to pitch with an improvised beak.

You will need to seam seal the ridgeline of this tarp prior to use as per these instructions (or use our service).

Made in the USA from imported materials.

The doors are secured using shock cords with mitten clips to keep weight down, but if you expect stronger winds, using static lines is recommended (not included).
