Rig 3.5 is a shaved down version of our popular and much adulated Rig 7.

The 2.4 m x 1.4  m size is ideal for 1 person (or 2 people at a bit of a squish) to use as extra shelter for bivvying and lightweight enough to use for fast and light travel. 

Packing down to the size of your hand, Rig 3.5 is a great option for lightweight travel such as bikepacking, microadventures and overland travel.

The 16 hypalon re-inforced attachment points allows Rig 3.5 to be pitched in an almost limitless number of configurations.

The 30d PU coated silicon Cordura fabric is fully taped on the underside to stop any water coming through, and the siliconised coating on the top side reduces water build up.

Key features
  • Ideal for a solo mission whether in a tarp or bivvy bag.
  • Stuff sack included
  • 16 Re-inforced hypalon attachment points - 4 lifters, 12 edge tie downs
  • Walking poles (pictured) are not included.

Great solo backpacking shelter!

I've used this little fella a couple of times now and I'm very happy with it. I've pitched it with both walking poles and 29er+ bike wheels, it's works a treat in both set ups. If you want to keep all of your items under cover, then you may want something slightly bigger, but if you are looking for lightweight, keeps you dry, this is your fella. Always super impressed with the quality of the Alpkit range.

Excellent value for money!

Had this tarp for about 3 months and used in various weather. The tarp is perfect for solo trips with my bivi. The quality is excellent and the 16 tie out points make the tarp very versatile and the number of configurations are endless. The 2.4m x 1.4m is plenty big enough for me and my gear but if you need to shelter 2 people I'd go for the larger model. I've made a video review should you require more detail.....Great product!

Amazing quality and function at an excellent price

Excellent quality tarp, durable, lightweight and very good design.

It is fairly small (as the dimensions specify in the description).
Check the size before you buy, don't give poor ratings because it is smaller than you wanted when the dimensions are very clearly stated!

Go for the next size up

I am an Alpkit fan but as a six footer I found this item to be too small to be of any practical use as a solo tarp

Wilderness Skills Rig 3.5

Joe's Rig set up

My minimalist tarp set up using the Alpkit rig 3.5. Absolutely crazily small pack size but full coverage. This set up was similar in size to a typical hooped bivi tent so only really suitable for overnight.
