I have been an outdoors enthusiast for several decades now enjoying so many activities from Mountaineering, Hill Walking, Mountain Biking, Bushcraft, Camping, Motorcycle Touring to Hiking Adventures further afield. I have come to realise regardless of the environment and elements having at hand a good shelter is essential, whether using the diversity of a tarp on its own or simply as an addition to any tent to improve living space especially for a group or during cooking. I have owned various Tarps but, by far the best in both the quality of the materials used and design The Terra Nova Competition Tarp 2 is second to none. It is the perfect size, weighs a mere actual 337g / 32oz, packs down to 12x22cm without any compression and as has a formidable HH rating of 5000mm. I cannot recommend this Tarp enough and how essential it is to add to any outdoor gear.
