Hyperlite Mountain Gear Flat Tarp


The ultimate minimalist, ultralight tarp shelter for backpacking, our Flat Tarp is engineered to be precisely what passionate adventurers need and nothing more. Available in two sizes: 8’6″ x 8’6″ square or rectangular for 8′ x 10′ tarp shelter configurations. Pitch according to weather conditions, terrain or need. Flat edges and square corners, non-catenary cut for maximum versatility. Every Hyperlite Mountain Gear Dyneema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber) tarp features fully bonded seams, adding near-total impermeability to a long list of attributes, including exceptional durability and UV resistance, that distinguish the Flat Tarp from other ultralight tarp options. Use adjustable trekking poles for set up. Available in Classic White or Spruce Green.
