Big Agnes Onyx Carbon Tarp

Add Protect+ Powered by Extend™

Onyx Tarp Carbon

Out of the massive collection of ultralight backpacking tents, Onyx tarps, and minimalist shelters from Big Agnes, the Onyx Tarp Carbon is the lightest shelter available for backpacking. Its Dyneema fabric is surprisingly durable for the whole tarp only weighing ten ounces, and it's ruggedly rainproof for reliable protection in wet weather. The Onyx Tarp Carbon can easily be set up in a wide variety of configurations, making it a must-have for any thru-hiker, minimalist backpacker, or ultralight enthusiast. You can pitch it over your sleeping bag on the trail, tie it over a hammock, or create an emergency rain shelter for your raft, and it's ultra compact when packed away. The included Easton carbon strut can increase headroom at the ceiling, or you can replace one of the required trekking poles for less weight.

Carbon Tent Repair Tips

How to repair a Big Agnes Carbon Series tent with the included repair kit.


Big Agnes Onyx Carbon Tarp

If your goal for shelter is to have a high performance, ultra-technical, ghostly lightweight tarp, then the Onyx Carbon with Dyneema® is your best choice. With a 6oz trail weight made up of Dyneema® Composite Fabrics (an extremely strong and dynamic fiber)--that is also 100% rainproof and highly tear resistant--this tarp is the perfect shelter for bikepackers, packrafters, and ultralight backpackers needing overhead coverage to the lightest degree. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, this tarp is not indestructible and requires careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.
