    Stripped-down performance for ultra-minimalist backpackers.

    When the forecast calls for clear skies throughout your backpacking trip, go ultralight with the Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo II Tarp. Weighing in at well under a single pound, this tarp offers an ultra-minimalist shelter solution for those trying to keep weight to an absolute minimum. It sets up using your two trekking poles for support and structure, along with multiple guy line points for stability. Dyneema fabric is the lightest, strongest, and most waterproof fabric available in the outdoor industry. It weighs next to nothing and packs up incredibly strong, yet is tough enough to handle rugged adventures and weatherproof enough to shield you from unexpected showers.

    Hands-down the best quality around

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Its a tarp, but its probably the most well made tarp on the planet.



    The cuben fiber (named Dyneema now due to new owners of the company that produces it) material its made of was invented and used originally for racing boat sails. So its extremely durable and won't tear or even stretch under high winds or wet conditions. There have been cases of extreme hail storms making holes in the lighter material cuben tents but the actual chances of that are so slim that the weight savings wins out for me.



    I use my Echo II for tarp and bivy camping and its perfect for that, I don't have the beak or insert net-tent. There's ample room for a single person and could accommodate 2 comfortably. It has a couple d-rings on the underside for attaching a guyline to the bivy keeping the netting elevated off my face, a requirement for comfortable tarp/bivy use in my book.



    I've had it in several wet and stormy situations and with some experience in different tarp set-ups its possible to keep thoroughly dry, just takes some practice.



    Cuben is notorious for being susceptible to abrasion so I'd suggest being careful with setting it up and to use a nylon or silnylon stuff sack, re-purpose the included cuben sack for clothes or something.
