Rab Siltarp 2 Tarp


See available tarps and light shelters


Compact enough to fit into the corner of a daypack, this tarp can be set up as a lunchtime shelter or an overnight bivy. The fabric uses a silicone impregnation that causes water to bead and roll off. When this extraordinary water repellency is combined with taut, steep rigging, the tarp acts like it’s waterproof, just as an umbrella made of fabric that is technically not waterproof provides excellent rain protection.

  • Dimensions are 2.4 x 3m
  • Made of silicone-impregnated ripstop parachute nylon
  • Reinforced centre suspension loop plus lots of corner and side tie loops provide many set-up options, including a pyramid, an A-frame, or a lean-to
  • Stuff sack features a mesh bottom to allow drainage and drying
  • Packed size of 10 x 20cm (about the size of a water bottle)
