Weighing just over 300g (less than a 330ml can of drink), the SplitWing UL Tarp gives you Slingfin's most minimal camping shelter for those wanting the lowest pack-weight without compromising on space and weather protection.
The SplitWing Tarp offers space for up to two-persons, though it is great for solo hikers looking for added living space and room for kit storage. The unique design pitches using trekking poles/tarp poles (not included) with the front 'wings' letting you set the head height anywhere between 105-120cm. A lower pitch angle lets you prioritise the floor area with a reduced profile for storm protection; a higher pitch angle offers increased headroom for added comfort. The enclosed foot area further increases weather protection and helps reduce drafts. Where terrain allows, the apex guy-point system lets you pitch between two trees instead of using poles.
Slingfin uses only the finest grade fabrics and materials in their designs with the SplitWing featuring an ultralight 10D nylon ripstop fly. Silicone treatment on both sides of the fabric creates a high level of waterproofing while strategically placed Expedition Series fabric (30D nylon ripstop) adds strength and durability. These superlight fabrics balance a hard-wearing design with a minimal pack weight and bulk for a thoroughly practical rainproof and UV resistant design.
This versatile hiking shelter can be accessorised to meet comfort, space and weather requirements. For campers seeking a minimalist design with the added comfort and security of a tent, an optional Vestibule can be fitted to cover the front opening to provide 360-degree coverage. And for those wanting increased weather and bug protection, the SplitWing Mesh Body can be installed to transform the SplitWing into a cosy double-wall tent with a sub 700g trail weight! An optional Footprint rounds out the design boosting ground protection.
In all, the SplitWing UL Tarp is the go-to tarp shelter for hikers and wild campers looking for a high-quality, versatile design with a minimum of weight. From long-distance summer hikes and ultra-marathons to fast-moving bike-packing and wild camping, the SplitWing gives you a tried and tested tarp tent fit for the trail.
