Rab Siltarp 3 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 for 3 to 5 people. 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.

  • Made of silicone-impregnated 30-denier ripstop Cordura 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
  • Includes a stuff sack
