|Description||The Gossamer Gear Twinn Tarp is a new version of our original SpinnTwinn ultralight tarp. For the backpacker with the requisite skills this tarp can replace a traditional tent to save weight and space. The Twinn employs our custom made 7 denier nylon making it exceptionally waterproof, very small when packed and of course lightweight. All of this means you can have confidence that your shelter will keep you dry, won’t break your back and won't take up much space in your pack. Sets up easily with our optional ultralight carbon trekking poles or our tarp pole set.
The Twinn shelter provides plenty of room for two, and offers an amazing amount of space for the solo hiker. Lineloc buckles at each corner and the middle of both sides for easy line tensioning.
Computer-designed catenary curves throughout 47 square feet (4 sq m) of protected area 12" (30 cm) front entrance overhang and 6" (15 cm) rear entrance overhang. Tapered front to back design saves weight and enhances wind deflection. Computer-designed tarp wall shape allows sufficient interior height and space to minimize contact with the interior. Three stakeout points per side extends pitching options and minimizes fabric stress. This tarp is factory seam taped for complete waterproofness.
