Sticky Note

Bear Bones guide to the Rig tarp

A lightweight tarp is a remarkably flexible shelter solution. It can be strung between two trees, propped up with a trekking pole, pulled out from a stone wall or even stretched over a bike. As a product things do not get much simpler, however the skills required to master this rectangular sheet of nylon are higher than you would need with a tent. Sometimes a little inginuity is called for but once mastered you will be rewarded with some amazing nights in the outdoors.

In this 2 part guide Stuart Wright of Bear Bones Bikepacking takes us through some classic tarp set ups.
