Presenting the summit three and four-season hammock tarps.
This tarp is designed as a system that can take you anywhere from a weekend outing all the way to a rugged backcountry experience.
Why the Summit is probably the best hammock tarp out here?
What really sets the shelter apart from others is that our Summit hammock tarps are made from a 1.1-ounce silicone-coated polyester fabric with a flat failed Ridgeline instead of a taped or grow grain seam.
All of our tie-out points are reinforced with a 400 D diamond ripstop nylon Pat cloth. All of our tarps have a 12-foot Ridgeline. And when they’re set up properly at about six and a half feet wide, that gives you a 50-foot dry space underneath the tarp.
Including tie-outs, all of our tarps weigh a standard 23 ounces. These hammock tarps are made from Kelty Triptease, which has a reflective sheath and a Dyneema core, which resists stretching when it’s wet.
The summit hammock tarp will withstand more weather than most people are willing to stay out in.
I’ve tested it in thunderstorms all night in the rain at 9,800 feet in the snow 17 below temperatures and even clear blue skies on a sunny day.
Unlike other hammock tarps, our catenary cut on the side is much bigger. Where others have rolled their edges, we finish ours with synthetic edging.
Even with all this extra attention to detail, we’ve still maintained the 23-ounce standard weight with our tarps. The summit also comes with tie-outs already installed. Where other brands leave you to buy your own.
