Available in three models, UST’s versatile, ultra-lightweight Tarp Shelters can be used as a sleeping shelter, an all-weather tarp to protect gear, a ground cloth, and even as thermal protection in emergencies. Each flame-retardant tarp has an aluminized reverse side for wrapping around yourself for thermal insulation and reflectivity for emergency signaling. They set up in minutes with the included guy lines and steel stakes, and instructions are conveniently located on the exterior of the stuff sack. All models are backed by a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty.
A hidden zipper transforms the tarp into a tube-shaped, one-person sleeping tent, providing protection from the damp ground below and the elements above. The Tube Tarp measures 84 inches in length and weighs 1.75 pounds; when erected as a tent, it measures 39 x 84 x 35 inches (HxWxD). It packs down to 15 x 4 x 4 inches in the included stuff sack.
The six-sided Hex design provides excellent coverage in all weather conditions, and its single person size eliminates the need for a full size tarp. It’s great for using as a tent cover for camping hammocks, as well as using in combination with the UST Bug Tent (sold separately). The Hex Tarp measures 108 x 96 x 41 inches (LxWxD) and weighs 1.5 pounds. It packs down to 10 x 4 x 4 inches in the included stuff sack.
All Weather Tarp
The four-sided All Weather Tarp measures 8 x 6 feet and weighs 15 ounces. It packs down to 8.5 x 4 x 4 inches in the included stuff sack.
