This shelter is designed to be used with trekking poles, two at the sides and two at the ends. An 8 oz / 227 g alternate pole set for the sides and a 2 oz / 60g pole set for the ends is also available for non-trekking pole users. It is also possible to suspend the structure from trees or other overhead supports.

Yes, the fabric is waterproof, however the seams of the shelter need to be seam-sealed.
Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet. We sell optional Tyvek groundsheets which are very tough and great for sleeping out or taking a break, but generally heavier than you need for floor protection on longer hikes, in most conditions. For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
