Our ultralight Flat Tarps are a minimalist adventurers dream. This tarp has plenty of space for a single ultralight hiker and their gear. Whether you’re hiking to a remote destination or cross-country bikepacking over uneven terrain, this ultralight shelter will set up easily and keep you dry and protected.  This tarp can put you well on your way to that elusive sub-7 lb base weight.

Set the tarp up as an A-Frame and enjoy the views and ventilation provided by both ends of the tarp. If the weather becomes harsh, the tarp can be set up in a variety of configurations for maximum protection.

A small stuff sack, 50ft of 2.0mm Yellow Z-Line cord and 2 Mini-D Carabiners come standard with our flat tarps but are not included in the listed weight.
