New for 2014! The versatile Kelty Upslope Tarp is a trekking pole pitch A-frame tarp tent ideal for backpackers. Also designed to work with Kelty’s TraiLogic gear collection, the Upslope Tarp attaches to the TN2 or TN3 tent to extend the vestibule. (Trekking poles and tents sold separately).
Providing minimalist weather protection for up to two backpackers, the advantage of the Upslope Tarp is its weight-saving packability and ease of setup, utilizing a pair of trekking poles for structure. With a packed weight of just 1 pound, 7 ounces, it can also serve as a spacious solo tent. Or combine the Upslope Tarp with a TN tent to create an awning above the front door.
The Upslope Tarp provides 37 square feet of protected interior space when pitched as a lean-to shelter. The lightweight, waterproof 40D Sil Nylon fabric sheds water easily. NOTE: As a minimalist shelter, the Upslope Tarp does not include a floor or doors.
Other features of the Kelty Upslope Tarp include guyline storage pockets and adjustable stake loops.
