What the manufacturer says:

When the British Polar Expedition arrived at the South Pole in 1911 it was Amundsen’s pyramid tent that they found. It’s endured because a pyramid shape is one of the most bombproof designs in horizontal wind and rain.

Tarpstar 2 is an ultralight, 2-person pyramid tarp tent that pitches using trekking poles. This is our modern take on a tent shape that’s been proven for over 100 years.

Tarpstar 2 packs small and light and crams into any corner of your pack. There’s plenty of space for 2 people or lots of kit on longer trips. It pitches quickly with a pole or with a trekking pole.

Pitch in different ways: go ultralight with just the 500g outer, on warm nights use the inner only. The optional footprint gives ultimate protection.

 

What we think:

We love the Tarpstar 2, it is one of our go to tents for several nights out when weight is a priority but style and room isn’t being forfeited. The tent is light and practical, providing lots of room for a single traveller or room for two with the gear for a weekend away. The tent is three season but will stand up to the elements well when pitched right, likewise it can be toned down to suit warmer climates and used as just the outer tarp or inner mesh.
