Description

Show Description

A favourite option for ultra-light hikers, the Scout tarp makes a fine shelter for two. The versatile design can be rigged as a roof, or pitched at an angle to create a comfortable shelter from the wind.

  • Multiple attachment points provide lots of rigging options.
  • Nickle-plated solid brass grommets are rugged and corrosion-resistant.
  • The stuff sack attaches to an attachment near the middle of the centre seam, so you can use a trekking pole, paddle, or length of wood as a centre pole.
  • Centre loop lets you suspend it pyramid-style.
