Going Light: MSR tarp tent review

Finding the right, lightweight shelter can be challenging. It should be light, easy to pitch, sturdy enough for some nasty conditions and ventilate well. It ought not to break the bank either.

Hikers increasingly are turning to tarps as a way to cut weight and bulk in the pack.  They are versatile and can be pitched in a number of ways.

Me? Well, I  like my side walls and a connected floor. I still remember waking up as a young camper with a blue racer snake slithering through the tent one night.

Still, there is a lot to be said for a shaving pounds. The MSR Fast Stash Tarp Shelter is one of the lightweight offerings on the market today. Phil Werner reviews it at his Section Hiker Blog. Check it out: Section Hiker
