Today we take a look at the tarp i’ve been field testing for the past year, the Snugpak All Weather Shelter. It’s a 10×10 ultra lightweight tarp designed to be deployed in virtually any weather condition. I wouldn’t ascend everest with it, but for most conditions you will ever be in this will do the job.
The best part of the Snugpak All Weather Shelter is the price. Quality tarps with a lot of configurability don’t often come cheap. If they do i’d be uneasy about the quality. I was hesitant to purchase this thing, i’ll be honest.
It’s made of a tent like nylon material. I figured with the abuse of the field that it wouldn’t hold up well since it’s pretty thin, but it’s held up great so far.
Don’t just take my word for it here though. Be sure to scroll back up top and watch the video if you haven’t already^
In the photo above here you can see me tightening a line with the Taut Line Hitch. Be sure to watch our tutorial on how it’s done. This is a crucial knot to know if you use tarps.
The Snugpak All Weather Shelter comes with 8 aluminum stakes, and 4 guy lines with an extender/tension piece. All the seams are taped, and the stitching is solid. It also has 4 reinforced grommets, lashing loops down all 4 sides, and 3 down the ridgeline for fly configurations over a hammock.
24 cm long by 12 cm thick in its compressed state, it weighs in at 2.2lbs. Making it an awesome option for lightweight travel. Which is my next key point…Operating in collapse based scenarios when your environment is hostile calls for gear that can help you stay alive. In these situations shelter is a component of your survival strategy that you need to learn how to minimize in both structure size and carry weight.
