Tarp tent

A tarp tent is a tarpaulin, a plastic or nylon sheet, used in place of a tent. It is rigged with poles, tent pegs, guy lines. Ultralight backpackers use tarp tents because they are lightweight compared to other backpacking shelters. In its simplest form it is floorless with open ends, as a fly or with the sides attached to the ground, it can be set up as a loue with two adjacent sides by the ground and the opposite corner as highest point, giving more protection from wind and reflecting heat from an optional fire in front of the open side. A tarp tent is lighter and cheaper than a tent and easier to set up. However, because it is more open, it does not provide as much protection from rain, wind, or cold as a tent does, it provides no protection from insects. More sophisticated tarp tents are now manufactured or homemade with such things as bug screening and storm flaps on the ends and floors and vents. According to Harvey Manning in his book Backpacking One Step at a Time, "The term'tarp-tent' as used here denotes a broad category which at one boundary is nothing more than a shaped tarp and at the other end verges on a'true' tent.

The common characteristic is a single wall, in most cases, waterproof." In Mountaineering the Freedom of the Hills it says, "A tarp tent is both light in weight and low in cost, offers adequate shelter from all but extreme weather in lowland forests and among subalpine trees." Tarp tents are made of silnylon material because it is lightweight and waterproof. The basha is a tarp tent used by the British and Australian armies. Poncho tent Commercial manufacturer: Vihe Vaellus
