A tarp provides essential weather protection but still allows you to feel fully “outdoors.” In addition, a tarp can be used to create a breezy patio over your tent’s entrance, or as a kitchen away from your campsite for greater safety in bear country. Tarp use is nearly limitless, and they can be pitched with trekking poles, paddles, branches, or they can be suspended from trees as well.
Hilleberg's smallest model, the new Tarp 5 UL Shelter, is designed specifically to cover a single person while also providing extra room for gear. Its shape makes it easy to get in and out of, and it can be pitched fairly high off the ground for the full, airy, tarp experience. With its edges nearly or fully on the ground it gives a remarkably protective refuge from bad weather. Using a Bivanorak when sleeping under the Tarp 5 – or any of the Tarp models – adds both sleeping bag protection and an extra defense against bad weather. In keeping with its minimalist mission, the Tarp 5 is made from their very light yet strong Kerlon 1000, used in some of their 3-season, Yellow Label tents, and comes with attached 2 mm guy lines.
Any of their Tarps are excellent things to have with you on any hike: use one during a break as an out of the weather gathering spot, or as a “dining hall” at lunch or dinner. The Tarp 5 will provide shelter for one to two people, the Tarp 10 is a good choice for two to four hikers, and the Tarp 20 will easily cover larger groups.
