The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Tarp 5 – denoting that it is five square meters of fabric – is shaped specifically to cover a single person while also providing extra room for gear. Its design both makes it easy to get into and out of, and allows for adjustable levels of weather shielding: pitch it fairly high off the ground for the full, airy, tarp experience, or pitch it with its edges nearly on the ground to make a remarkably protective refuge from bad weather. To keep the weight low, we make the Tarp 5 from our Kerlon 1000, one of our dedicated 3-season fabrics, which has a substantial 8 kg/17.6 lb tear
strength. Like our other Tarps, the Tarp 5 comes equipped with attached guy lines – in this case the proprietary 2 mm Vectran and polyester line found in our Yellow Label tents. It can be pitched using trekking poles, or by suspending either end of its ridge line, and it also has its own integrated stuff pocket, so that, when packed, the Tarp 5 is about the size of a one liter cooking pot.
