There are two sizes 400s (3.5m x4m)

and 500s (5mx5m)

they look pretty good black one side silver on the other, lightweight. I'm thinking of trying one.

Cheers

David

Interesting concept having the poles on the outside and having them shorter.

On my Black Cat I have two full length poles with pockets on the inside.

bit of a pain putting the fg poles through the sleeves,, also you need to use the guy lines if it is windy, also great at the beach or where ever you need shade.
The guys that pointed me to my set up had mentioned that they had once had one of these and the fiberglass poles broke rather easily.

Hey, Gezer....that campsite looks pretty " rooty". I would prolly drop my bike on that, my dirt skills are......wait....I don't have any dirt skills!
Hey, it was Alaska ! 12.8 miles into Denali National Park. And we only had one dropped bike the whole trip...a classic drop of a GSPD while dismounting !

7'X5' tarp in the sports section of Wallymart for under $10- has grommets in the corners and edges- folds into about a fist sized bag. Find some poles and line.

I think the nicer tarps have just a bit of elasticity in them that makes it easier to string them up. The cheap blue tarps don't stretch.
