Rig 7 lightweight nylon tarp

The Rig 7 has received glowing reviews from both printed and online magazines due to its built-in versatility, low weight and durability.

The 8 lift points across the face of the tarp and the 16 edge tie-downs allow the Rig 7 to be pitched in an almost limitless number of configurations. All these points have been reinforced with Hypalon rubber to ensure they don’t let you down when the weather turns.

The 30 den 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. At 2.4 m long and 2.8 m wide the Rig 7 is comfortably large enough to sleep up to 4 people underneath it.

It's also a lot of fun to use, even play with, and that kind of user involvement is part of what using a tarp is all about, and so the Rig 7 is a worthy winner

Steve tramped across the cloud covered moors. Although it wasn't raining as such, everything was dripping. He longed for the day to be over and to be snuggled inside his nice dry down bag.
