Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


A favourite option for fast-and-light hikers, the Silicone 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.

  • Silnylon fabric is super lightweight and tear-resistant
  • Multiple attachment points provide lots of rigging options
  • Nickel-plated solid brass grommets are rugged and corrosion-resistant
  • Stuff sack snaps onto 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
