Review of Poncho Tarp
Great piece of equipment for the weight and price. Always take with me for emergency shelter.

great tarp
this poncho/tarp is wonderful! Lite, comfortable, and should hold up well if I wander thru the stickerbushes. I wish the neck opening was a bit bigger, but I might easily fix that myself. My wife is jealous.

Great to carry
Such a small and compared to others inexpensive poncho, everyone should carry one. The poncho provides good coverage even with a pack, golite could make the hole a little larger which would make it perfect. And it makes a great one person shelter. My favorite set up is similar to the picture but adding an extra pole so its like a lean to with a beak. Then I use a bit of cord to stake out the back middle and the hood which increases living space and ventilation. Every time I hike or backpack, this goes with me.

Super light and sturdy
Pretty much the gold standard for weight, until you spend $$$ on cuben. Easy set up, especially if you add clips or line locs. Also can be a multiple use item. Great value.

Go Lite Poncho Tarp
Awesome awesome awesome tarp. I was nervous to say the least about switching from the traditional tent to lightweight shelters, but this made it very easy. It does double duty, as a poncho and a shelter, which for all those looking to go UL is a huge plus. I used this tarp several times where wind and rain were a factor, but I stayed dry. Lightweight and versitile, this will quickly become one of your favorites in your pack.
