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 or branches, and can be suspended from trees, as well.
The Tarp 10, is designed specifically to cover 2 people while also providing extra room for gear. Its shape makes it easy to get into and out of, and it can be pitched fairly high off the ground for the full, airy, tarp experience, or with its edges nearly, or even fully, on the ground for a remarkably protective refuge from bad weather. Using a Bivy bag when sleeping under the Tarp 10 adds both sleeping bag protection and an extra defence against bad weather.
Designed for two-person use, the Tarp 10 pairs wonderfully with our Mesh Ridge, our Mesh Box 10, and our Mesh Inner Tents. Any of these combinations are a lightweight – and bug-free – choice for warmer weather trips.
Hilleberg Tarps are excellent 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.
