The Gossamer Gear® Q-Twinn™ tarp is an even lighter spin on our SpinnTwinn, the original cat cut tarp for two. The QTwinn employs Cubic Tech's new CTK series of non woven laminates making it exceptionally waterproof, dimensionally stable, and of course gossamer light. All of this means you can have confidence that your shelter will keep you dry, won't need re-tensioning in the middle of the night and won't take up much space in your pack.

The CubicTwinn™ provides plenty of room for two, and offers an amazing amount of space for the solo hiker at NO REAL WEIGHT PENALTY! Imagine carrying a two person shelter that only weighs 7oz and having all that room to yourself? Utilize  the Q-Twinn™ as your  normal 3 season shelter or bring it along in your day pack as an emergency shelter that won't take up much space or weigh you down.

"I had this tarp set up for 3 days in driving rain; just as advertised, the non-stretchable cubic material stayed taut the entire time. At this weight why would you ever not include it in your pack?"  -Steve Burgess, GG Trail Ambassador and filmmaker.
