Designed to be tough, durable and practical, the True North Little Tarp is a versatile 2 person shelter for outdoors men, whether they are canoeists, fellsmen, sea kayakers or wilderness travelers. It provides a snug bolthole in foul weather or a refuge from the blazing sun. In larger groups it can be teamed up with the Big Tarp for additional space, to close off an extra side or even as a groundsheet in soggy conditions.
The Little Tarp is also ideal as a swift group shelter for a lunch stop when the Big Tarp has been left in base camp. It is designed to be rigged from trees, with trekking poles or canoe paddles using the guy lines and mesh pockets. Supplied with a simple instruction sheet with a few ideas in sketched diagrams on how to rig the Little Tarp. Other innovative ways will be suggested by your imagination. In use, task, terrain and weather will dictate the shape you choose.
The Little Tarp can also be put to work in many other roles: perhaps as a spinnaker or gaff rig sail for an open canoe, as a kit store or when expertly folded as a watertight canoe pack to protect your equipment from rain and spray. In use with hammocks either strung diagonally or lengthways the tarp offers great protect, maximum flexibility and a long life.
