A Long Distance Hiker’s Best Friend.

With a closed rear foot triangle and overhanging beak at the head, the ultralight Patrol Tarp Shelter ™ is truly a long distance hiker’s best friend. 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 Serenity BugNet Shelter fits both the Solo and Duo Patrol Tarp Shelter’
s to form a two wall modular ultralight tent system with bug protection.
“A long distance hikers Best friend! I used my Patrol Shelter most nights on the A.T. There is absolutely no wear visible and it never leaked a drop. The interesting thing about DCF is that there is very little to no condensation. If anyone is asking themselves if DCF is worth it… IT TOTALLY IS! Advantages: no stretch, lightest weight, stronger than steel, absorbs no water, translucent (can actually see stars through it), and it’s quieter than SilNylon or spinnaker; though probably more due to the excellent design of the Patrol Shelter.”
– TRIPLE CROWNER, MATTHEW “ICE AX” EDWARDS
