Looking for ultra light, plain and simple coverage for two? The Upslope A-frame Tarp sets up super fast and offers multiple trekking pole pitch options with guyline storage pockets. It’s great at the end of a tiring day on the trail and super versatile. You can use the tarp solo as a lean-to shelter or add it to one of our other tents for an extended awning when the rain hits. Flexibility is your friend when it comes to having something overhead.

If you are looking for a lightweight all season alternatives to a tent, one that works in most all environments, this should be among your top considerations. The ability to pitch this tarp is limited only by imagination. I love the protection it provides while offering intimate exposure to the elements.
I replace the guy lines with longer lengths (20ft) of heavier duty parachute cord and buy high quality stakes, though the ones included are serviceable. Best for use in the non-bug season and below timberline. Fantastic for winter camping. Low weight and prices should make this an essential part of your kit. Eugene M Geddes on Aug 8th 2017
This is a perfect set up with my trail bivy. The corners have strong guy lines that even tuck into their own built in pockets. Using our Kelty trekking poles, a friend and I were able to combine two upslope tarps to create a large covered area, one for each of us as a sleeping area, and between them was used for cooking/eating. As a warning, make sure your stakes are secured as we were in a windy area that kicked up one of the corners and was causing it to flap around. The stake was still tied in and it whipped back into the tarp puncturing it several times. Overall I'm impressed with the tarps, easy to use and pack away. Tyson on Nov 2nd 2014
