Ever wanted to pack a small tent for hiking? Ever wanted to have an accessory that would shelter you without having to carry extra weight?
Lightweight Tarp for Hiking/Camping
The Rolling Fox Tarp may be the answer. When I go out on an adventure, I don’t always want or need to carry a tent. Rolling Fox sent me their Tarp Shelter to evaluate and review. Rolling Fox’s Tarp Shelter allows me to have the benefits of a tent cover, without the restrictions pre-determined tent design. Let me share my thoughts on this great camping tarp and then at the end, you can enter to win your every own Rolling Fox Tarp for hiking or camping.
The design of the tarp is simple: a skewed diamond shape with reinforced tabs along the edges. Each corner tab uses a reinforced D-Ring. Three additional tabs have been sewn into each side. That’s 12 additional attach points! Each tab is reinforced with a triangular sewn patch to strengthen each point. The key feature of these tabs is the fact that they extend past the edges, increasing your options for tie points. When first looking at the Rolling Fox Tarp Shelter, the points of attachment enticed me. But at first, I couldn’t understand why the tarp was not square. After trying it out, I immediately appreciated the engineering design of the tarp. Since it is not square, your options for coverage are drastically increased. Whether you are short or tall, the Rolling Fox Tarp can accommodate! Simply attach the included cords to the tab and extend the tarp to a tie point.
Rolling Fox includes four tie cords and four ground pegs with the tarp. Each cord includes an adjustment slider that allows the user to reduce the length of the cord. The included pegs allow the user to have increased options for attaching the tarp to the ground. The tie cords and the ground pegs are packaged in a separate pouch to keep them together. The best part, the Rolling Fox Tarp weighs only 1.5 lbs! Rolling Fox posts on their website that the Tarp weighs 600 grams and rolls up to a 30cm x 14 cm stuff sack. Be sure to take a look at Rolling Fox’s website for detailed configurations to setup the tarp shelter. For $35.97, the Rolling Fox Tarp is a must have in your camping box or pack. It makes creating a shelter easy and customized to your site.
