How about a $6.00 blue tarp and a couple of sticks.

Does Kelty know you guys are selling his tarp?

Shhhh. Don’t tell him.

Would be nice to know what material the tarp is made of. If it’s silnylon it would be a steal at this price.

Yes, it would. No, it’s not.

Check the Amazon page - polyester with nylon pullouts and grommets.

Kelty Noah’s is a fine tarp, just ask anyone that has posted a review. Larger by nearly 2’ along the side than the more-commonly-offered-here Yukon tarp. I own several of the Yukon tarps, and have been waiting for the Noah’s to be offered here again. In for one - excellent for hammock camping (the 9’ that is).

The stakes being included with this makes it an even better deal - these are excellent stakes and you get 6 of them.

So, ummm…how can this be called a tarp " shelter " if there are no poles included? Wouldn’t it just be a tarp?

(Minus the sticks)

I purchased a 12’ from woot some time ago. We used it as a shelter over the campfire area during our spring trip to the BWCA. The tarp held up well. I did have a Yukon that I used the year before that did not hold up so well. I don’t think I’d use one to replace a hammock fly with 6 tie down points, but for a base camp shelter it can’t be beat for this price.

A poncho hooch is much more effective. stake the 4 sides and a rifle height stick in the middle (or, best practice) under a tree, suspending the center of poncho with 550 cord.

What color tarps are available? the video shows red, a color that I don’t like to use in the woods, visual pollution you know. It would be nice if a green, olive, gray was offered.

Looks like it’s ready to go airborne on a slight breeze.

What good is this thing without the poles?

Please provide links for the 12’ to a side ponchos.


Just the greyish brownish color pictured.

Poles aren’t included with these, they have always been an add-on, even if you buy direct from Kelty. I use my trekking poles instead of separate poles to save weight/space.

These tarps are pretty decent, and because they are polyester, they actually hold up better than some of the more expensive ultralight tarps.

These certainly aren’t as light as some others, but if you are just getting into UL backpacking/thru-hiking, these are a great place to start.

I have to give props to the blue tarp comments though too… I have spent many a night on multi-state bicycle rides rolled up in one of those like a burrito. They definitely have their place in my gear closet.

After tax and shipping, groupon has it cheaper. $33 total out the door for 9’. $52 for the 16’


I use the 9’ model strung like in the picture staked out at just 2 points (tied to the hammock trees instead of poles). Works perfectly, been doing that for 15 years. The other tie points aren’t used, and the catenary cut makes it hang taut.
