Part of the new DD Superlight Range (range includes hammock and mosquito net).

Pack size:   19cm x 11cm x 8cm

The DD Superlight Tarp has 19 attachment points like their other tarps which allows it to be set-up in literally hundreds of different ways!

It can be used as a hammock tarp, set-up on the ground as a 'tent', group shelter and many more uses!

Weighing only 460g and packing up very small it is ideal for anyone looking to cut their pack weight down to an absolute minimum. Made from strong ripstop nylon with PU 3,000mm coating (completely waterproof even in the heaviest storms).

Like all of their tarps it is fully waterproof and taped along the central seam.

The Superlight Range is more expensive than their other products due to the higher cost of using the lightest materials.

I have a MSR 100 Wing as well, and I payed 150 for 2 pegs. Obviously!!
Sunday, 22 January 2017  | 

They're very much alike, size & weight,

but the DDH SLT has more guying points.

So far I've only tested the SLT today, but since it's sold by BPL I rest assured concerning the quality and I'm very confident after today's testing that it will do a nice job.

I usually sleep inside a mosquito A-frame mesh tent under a Tarp, but after having received the BEAUTIFUL Tarp DVD as courtesy from the good folks at BPL and some Skittles (always Skittles, I now must up my Tarp game!

So today was a big day,

I only used line and knots l learned from Bob on the DVD, no "line-loks". Good for me I also picked up some nice Luxe Outdoor Tyvek ground sheet, because I got so inspired that I have to practice, practice, practice.

Is there a downside side with this Tarp?
Well, it only comes with 4 lines (bad quality) and 4 pegs, so can't really use "right out of the box". You'll need at least another ridge line or 2 pieces to make an A-frame.

Sure, you could make a "Lean to", but this big Tarp and only 4 small pegs...

I recommend ordering some Dyneema line (30 m) and a set of additional pegs, but keep the pegs outside, because the stuff sack is a very tight fit when you have lines attached.

A great tent for a tarp
Thursday, 5 January 2017  | 

Used under rain for 2 nights, with the tent setup, and it worked perfectly well. Plenty space in it, to store stuff, to cook, to sleep, to change clothes.

With a net tent which runs around 85g, this is almost a real tent, (around 800g all included), you can close the door quite narrow, so you have a cheap and huge tent...and a tarp of course

The main point is that the fabric retain water, so the nylon relaxes too much, and it's difficult to dry it specially when it's raining few days, so I guess it's a bit heavier, but for a versatile tarp its worth it.

Special thanks to BPL for their unic services and kindness : the dvd is really usefull, and I learned the main knots, merci beaucoup.

Quality you'd expect from DD
Thursday, 6 October 2016  | 

it's so darn light!! However, I'm giving it a 4 star because I wish they had used the ridgeline webbing on the guy tabs around the tarp. The webbing used on the guy tabs feels awfully dainty, but I suppose only time will tell how well they hold up.

Great Tarp and Excellent Customer Service
Thursday, 15 September 2016  | 

Ordered Tarp for Next Day delivery, received regular text messages of order status, delivered as promised next day within one hour time slot again texted via DPD courier service. Parcel on opening contained order , personally signed thank you card and of course a bag of skittles which were very yummy. Why cant all companies treat their customers like this? Will definitely use backpackinglight again in the future. As for the DD Tarp well it done its job on Kinder Scout (Peak District) during a enormous thunder/hail/rain storm in September 2016. Set up in tent style it withstood everything thrown at it and ket me and my two dogs dry. Thank you so much. By the way i never leave feedback so that should say it all.

Good product, great service
Tuesday, 22 September 2015  | 

As always excellent service from backpackinglight and the sweets are s much appreciated bonus (I usually save them for when I'm footsore and thirsty midway through a long walk).

The tarp is great - plenty big enough for the hammock and with lots of attachment points but it packs down to the tiniest stuff sack.

I really enjoyed the DVD too... Some good tips for knots and a great blooper reel

Many thanks I'll be back for more!

A SuperbTarp
Friday, 18 September 2015  | 

I used this on a 6 night Snowdonia backpack immediately after purchase. It is extremely light at 395 grams and much roomier than my 2.5 metre square tarp. It kept the wind and rain out, especially when closed down on three sides and at only 55 is very good value. The dark green light weight nylon is tape seemed and blends in well with the land. It is certainly superior to my original DD tarp, which weighs over 650 grams.
