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.

Key features
  • Plenty of reinforced attachment points: 8 lifters; 16 edge tie downs
  • Stuff sack included

    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

    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.
