The new Zpacks Altaplex Tarp is a more svelte version of their Altaplex Tent, shedding the built-in bathtub floor and bug protection for a minimalist shelter that weighs half as much of its fully featured sibling. The Altaplex Tarp sets up with a single pole and at least six stakes around the perimeter of the shelter. There are two doors that overlap and hook together when closed.
For an additional $109, Zpacks offers an optional bathtub ground sheet that clips inside to each corner, or the ultra-minimalists amongst us might just grab a piece of Tyvek for a super light setup. There are linloc adjusters sewn into all corners, and a 2mm bright yellow cord is pre-cut and attached right from Zpacks. The Zpacks Altaplex Tarp is made from a lightweight, waterproof Dyneema Composite fabric, has taped seams, and is offered in six different colors.
