Camping Tarp System

Camping tarps are versitile camping shelters which are ideal for campouts. They're ultra-light weight, durable and meant for the outdoor elements. 

They can be configured in a number of ways to provide the perfect shelter. They're highly water-repellent and UV-resistant.

Trail Purpose

One of the primary outdoor priorities in an evacuation scenario is to keep out of extreme elements and keep your body at a healthy temperature. Of course you can build a wilderness shelter but having one handy saves a lot of energy and brings piece of mind. 

A camping tarp is a shelter system that serves as a great campout shelter. It is weather proof (wind, rain, sun) and a very light weight addition to a camping pack or bin. Compare it with the high end camping tarp system. If weight is a big issue, this could replace a tent and serve the same purpose.

Our camping tarp gets used for so many events. We use it under tents (folded), as a canopy, as a wind break, and more. When we get home we dry it out and store it with our tents and outdoor gear. 

What We Like

  • Durable - Waterproof and Tear-resistant: Made up of superior 210T ripstop polyester fabric with PU 3000mm coating
  • Light Weight - At just under 3 pounds the tarp, lines, and stakes makes a great addition to a backpack or bin. Instant shelter justifies the relatively light weight.
  • Minimalist - The tarp isn't complicated. Tie guy lines to the webbing loops to make it a synch to assemble in a hurry.
  • Designed for Mobility - Once stowed in its bag the tent fits snuggly in a pack for on-the-go mobility.
  • Weatherproof - The heat-taped seams and fabric holds out wind, rain, snow, and sun. We've experienced harsh elements when in the wilderness and a tarp of this quality repells it all.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Trial Run - Take it camping so you know how to set it up and stow it away after. 
  • Store It Dry - If you use it, put it away clean and dry so it doesn't mildew.
  • Put It Back - If you use it, put it back. Camping gear has a tendency to walk off when raided for common use.
  • Comfort Is Key - When you set it up you're goal is to make a great night's sleep. Find a place on the ground where you can put your pad and be the most comfortable.
