CRICKET PYRAMID TARP ™
A SoloMid XL with a Beak Instead of a Door!
WEIGHT: 7.5 – 11.5 oz | 210gm – 326 gm
The Cricket Pyramid Tarp ™ is the SoloMid XL with a beak instead of a door! The lightweight Cricket Pyramid is the perfect balance between simplicity, protection, and pitch options, without the hassle of a zipper!
5-panel design, with variable catenary curves at panel intersections, make for a very tight pitch and low wind buffeting, which equals less noise compared to a wrap around design with fewer panels. The front can be pitched low and wide, partially closing off the beak end for protection from high winds and other inclement weather, or pitched high during fair weather for maximum ventilation.
The SoloMid XL InnerNet fits the Cricket Tarp. By adding the InnerNet, it becomes the Cricket Tent!
