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.
