The White Lightnin' Tarp by Granite Gear. More and more hikers are going ultralight. That's why we chose now to introduce an ultralight tarp that we've been brewing for quite some time. This simple shelter is engineered to perform. The edges have a slight catenary cut that helps keep the whole thing taut. The edges and center seam are bound with Tension Tape which allows the ultralight 30-D Sil Cordura Ripstop fabric to be stretched tight as a drum from eight points along the edge and one in the center. After setup, the corners can be tightened without re-tying. Comes with micro cordage and stuffs into it's own attached stuff sack.Weights include self storing stuff sack and guy lines (no stakes). Tension Tape and quick adjustment make the White Lightnin' an ultralight tarp that's easy to pitch.

FEATURES of the Granite Gear White Lightnin Tarp

  • Catenary cut helps keep tarp taut

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear to have along I took this to Philmont Scout Ranch where we backpacked for 11 days in the mountains. On the first day this tarp sheltered us from marble sized hail. It preformed great in the storms that would pop up day to day. It packs up smaller than a nalgene and is pretty light. Trekking poles are used to hold it up and this is great since we had them anyway instead of carrying separate poles. The contoured corners allow the tarp to be stretched very tight. We used straps from black diamond that allow you to strap together two poles and make it tall enough to use as a dining fly,,.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why by a little tarp when you can pack a carport? C'on! 190 smacks for a tarp! Who are you kidding! But I love this thing. I wanted 10 x12 to use as a kitchen tarp on Boy Scout backpacking trips. I couldn't find another ultralight that big. We carry it for group shelter during meals it'll cover 10 squirmy scouts and then a couple of us sleep under it. It is next to weightless and easy to set up. GG uses bomber construction. You can stretch it tight as a drum without a worry. It even comes with ultra light cord. The strap harness for trekking poles is goofy I always work around it. I just bought another one for a second crew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just spent 3 weeks on an expedition leadership course with this bad boy & i couldn't have been more super lightweight, stuffs into the dead space of your pack like a pro. no stakes and/or poles = even lighter = happy backpacker. there are always things in your environment that will suffice & trekking poles are a must.,,,,definitely experienced strong bursts of wind rather frequently in the desert portion of utah. just make sure the rocks you use to tie off the ends are sturdy enough for raging gusts. i learned that via user error.,,,,i would recommend this gem 2 anyone striving 2 keep it simple, light, durable, versatile & quick reliability.,,,,thumbs up for sure

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, but I'm not sure it's really worth the hefty price tag. I've been looking for an awesome tarp for a little while now and decided to splurge on these (that sounds kind of dirty). I've found this tarp to be a reasonably solid silnylon tarp, but for the price I kind of expected something a little better.,,,,I wish Moosejaw could consider carrying more tarps like the MacCat tarp or the Warbonnet Superfly. I don't think I'll be sticking with this tarp, but it is a pretty decent tarp.,,,,I should also point out that when I got them the tarps were half blue and half white, not all blue like they are depicted in the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tightest and toughest tarp out there! I used this tarp for a thru hike of the AT and loved it. Although mine has about fifty patched holes in it from campfire sparks I think it will last another 2,000 miles. My previos tarp failed and I bought this one because it was the only tarp I could find near the trail on a resuply. I hated how much money it cost, but The catenary side and roof cuts make it worth the money. the curved cuts alow it to stay flap free in storms, and keep it tight in the wind. Also the reinforced outer edge make this tarp tough as mother nature. just keep it away from fire!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome lightweight tarp I love this tarp and recently took it to the high peaks region and it worked amazingly well. its easy to pitch in tons of positions, super light and stuffs extremely small and easily. I could use a compression sack to get it smaller, but theres no need. It also looks really cool. Ive started using my Hubba HP less and less for backpacking trips after getting this, its nice to shed the weight of poles, footprints, etc it also makes a sick chill area for you and your friends to get nice and toasty in and do some cookin

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tarping ... like a boss Compact, light, bombproof. Catenary cut means it's not flapping in the breeze like plain, square tarps are prone to do if you don't get every last tie-out just right. Different sizes fit different needs. It *is* just a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. ,,,,One oddity: Granite Gear seems schizophrenic about the color -- the image is all blue, but the tarp (in some cases, at least) is half blue, half white. Huh? How about another color, GG? Green? Gray?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing...... is............. I love sil-nylon. This tarp would make a great shelter for me, but I usually hike with a lady, so it has to suffice as a front porch for our 20-room tent. This thing keeps gear dry, keeps people dry, keeps that bear that's going through all your gear dry. Packs up nice and small, has plenty of tie-out straps - which are adjustable to really tighten everything up. Buy it. Don't think about it, just buy it.
