Hexamid Pocket Tarp - $199


The Hexamid Pocket is our lightest tarp ever! It is identical to our popular Hexamid Solo tarp, except without storm doors, and made from even lighter weight .34 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric. It is meant to be used as an emergency shelter carried in your day pack. It would also be useful for sitting out rain on day hikes, or nighttime shelter on short ultralight trips.

Back in 2011 we made a handful of Hexamid Solo tarps in .34 oz/sqyd material by mistake, but customers bought them up. Here is some feedback on how they have held up!
Hexamid Pocket Discussion at BPL
Steve B. Discusses his Pocket tarp and other Zpacks Gear.
A quick note to say that I picked up my Hexamid Pocket Tarp order at the Hiker Hostel back in October, and was stirred to write. I hiked the AT this year, flip flop via Harpers Ferry, and used the Hexamid Solo-Plus Tent from three years ago for the northern half, (for insects) and then the Pocket Tarp for the south. Both were absolutely excellent, and Iíve no adverse comments at all. Excellent pieces of kit, and very lightweight yet tough enough to survive a through trip on the AT. At times I had some serious wind and rain Ė but no real issues, a bit of spay and that was about it. As a pack I used the Arc Blast Backpack (2013 model) and it also stood up very well, had to wash it but thats about it. Despite your predictions I reckon its up to another through hike, just as well, since Iím off to NZ with the pack and the tarp in a couple of days. Just as background, Iím 66, and have previously hiked the usual UK stuff, the TMB, Haute Route, GR20 and the Kungsleden, among other treks." -Bob C.
