What is a tarp?

A tarp, short for tarpaulin, is a waterproof sheet with hooks and eyelets. This shelter can be set up in various configurations. With a rectangular shape, a tarp can be easily erected using adjustable poles or hiking poles during bivouacs. Simply stake a few pegs and use guy lines, and you have a basic shelter to sleep dry.

While camping, a tarp can serve as an additional protection against rain and sun above the tent. When combined with a tent, it can also act as an awning to expand the living space. For added comfort, you can also set up a footprint underneath.

How can a tarp be used?

Whether for bivouacking or camping, how can a tarp be utilized?

A shelter for bivouacking

A tarp offers a lightweight solution for bivouacking as you only need to bring the sheet and a few pegs to set up your shelter. It's a basic shelter that allows you to sleep protected from the rain. If you don't want to carry poles, two hiking poles can work perfectly for this purpose. A few pegs and cords are sufficient for guy lines. The tarp can be combined with a mosquito net tent to stay dry and protected from insects.

As a shelter for camping

A tarp can also be used for longer camping trips as an additional protection against inclement weather. When installed above the tent, it provides protection from both rain and sun. When attached to the tent, it can act as an awning and provide a sheltered space for dining at the entrance of your tent. The tarp can also be set up above a hammock for your outdoor activities.

How to set up a tarp for bivouacking?

In addition to being lightweight, a tarp can be set up in different ways for your bivouac. Multiple configurations are possible to adjust the tarp setup according to your needs and preferences. The easiest configuration is to stake two hiking poles or set up two poles at the same height and tension the tarp to give it a roof-like shape. However, it's also possible to create a tunnel-shaped shelter using a single pole or by using two poles at different heights. If the conditions allow, a tarp can also be suspended between multiple trees.
