Elegant and airy, Tarptents set up virtually anywhere. Designed by and for the outdoor enthusiast, Tarptents keep you dry and sane no matter the elements. Constructed of the lightest and highest quality materials available, Tarptents let you focus on the joy of the journey, not on the pain of getting there. The first Tarptent was born in the spring of 1999. Since then, Tarptents have successfully traversed all 3 ultra-long distance U.S. trails—the Pacific Crest, Appalachian, and Continental Divide Trails. We now serve thruhikers, backpackers, bikepackers, hunters and more!
