Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT Tarp
Mountainsmith makes a number of multi-person tents, but the Mountain Shelter LT Tarp is by far its lightest two-person shelter. Spartan by almost all standards, this tent is comprised of only a single door, it utilizes a single-wall design, and there's no floor. At just two pounds, the Mountain Shelter is three pounds lighter than its big brother the Morrison, and this tarp pitches without poles. Just slide a pair of trekking poles in under the tarp, pitch the corners, tension the guylines, and you're good to go (or use the two top points to connect to tree branches). This is an excellent minimalist option for backpackers looking to save weight and pack space without giving up vital protection from the weather.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought:
- 5' 11"
Only first impression but the tent / tarp seems to be well made from good materials. Sewing & craftsmanship are very good. Instructions on storage bag is thoughtful. Liked the color, although there is no floor or netting, it?s much cheaper to purchase than many Sil or PU tarps on the market & it has both. Stakes are a bit flimsy but a set of high quality pegs is only 40 bucks or so, putting the whole deal under $200 for a 2-person shelter that weighs 2lbs. For that price, I?m not gonna worry about the tent stakes.
