DescriptionThe Tarp 5 was created with the minimalist solo backpacker in Mind. As with the other Hilleberg tarps, the goal was a very light shelter that also offered strength and reliability. The Tarp 5 – denoting that it is five square meters of fabric – is shaped specifically to cover a single person while also providing extra room for gear. Its design both makes it easy to get into and out of, and allows for adjustable levels of weather shielding: pitch it fairly high off the ground for the full, airy, tarp experience, or pitch it with its edges nearly on the ground to make a remarkably protective refuge from bad weather. To keep the weight low, Hilleberg makes the Tarp 5 from the Kerlon 1000, one of the dedicated 3-season fabrics, which has a substantial 8 kg/17.6 lb tear strength. The Tarp 5 comes equipped with attached guy lines – in this case the proprietary 2 mm Vectran and polyester line. It can be pitched using trekking poles, or by suspending either end of its ridge line, and it also has its own integrated stuff pocket, so that, when packed, the Tarp 5 is about the size of a one liter cooking pot.

The outer tent’s fabric is crucial to keeping the elements out. Perhaps the most obvious, specific difference lies in the tear strengths of the outer tents. Kerlon 1000 has a minimum tear strength of 10kg. And it has a high UV resistance. The abrasion resistance is high as well. Many of the tent fabrics on the market – including those labeled “expedition grade” – have tear strengths of 2 kg/4.4 lbs to 3 kg/6.6 lbs. Thus, Kerlon 1000 is three to five times stronger than most other tent materials and amazingly light in weight 40g/m².

Jo. Dieses Tarp ist auf jeden Fall ein Gewinn. Größer als gedacht, hat es uns schon vor Sonne, Regen, Wind und Mücken geschützt. Als Dach über einem dänischen Tisch, als "Anbau" für ein Hilleberg Unna und freistehend hat es jederzeit für drei gereicht. Schnell in die angebrachte Tasche verpackt und mit ins Una gesteckt. Super. Kann man wirklich nur empfehlen.Antwort von Unterwegs am 01.01.1970
