    Awesome Tarp

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 16’

    Was pleasantly surprised to see integrated guy wires with pockets in the corners (at least on the 16’).

    Used twice and set up easy. Seems strong. Haven’t been through a wind storm yet.

    Bomb Shelter

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This tarp is a nimble beast! I've owned a Noah 9' for several years and love it. I added the 12' to my gear locker for my first backcountry trip with a hammock setup. It's plenty big for storm/winter mode. In porch mode there's room for a dance party. Tie-out points are beefy and construction is solid enough to cruise through the worst weather.

    It's not the lightest tarp out there, but I can sleep like a rock with peace of mind and that's well worth the weight equivalent of carrying an extra can of soda.

    Flexible and Fantastic

      So many configuration options. Swapped out some MSR Ground Hog stakes and use it with my trekking poles. Easy and quick to set up. Small and lightweight. Great for an UL shelter or an extra cover for cooking, etc.

      Nice ligthweight tarp

        I purchased this tarp with the intention to only use it as an emergency shelter, and it does just that flawlessly. Ive actually had bad weather only once since I bought it, so only used it once.I originally wanted to get the 16x16 tarp but when i got a chance to see one, the 16x16 packed up to be too large for my liking and I purchased the 12x12 version instead.The 12x12 tarp packs up to be about 2.5" in diameter and about 12" long and ways almost nothing.This size tarp is perfect for my needs. I didnt want something that was too big, even though at first i wanted to cover a full picnic table. The 12x12 covers a picnic table no problems with a slight sacrifice in head room. Im now left wondering if i should have got the 9x9... I guess im turing into a true mininalist... haha

        Versatile Piece of Gear

          I have had this tarp for a year now. I have the Noah 9. I got it for lightweight backpacking and as a separate shelter for cooking and hanging out during rainy and snowy weather. The tarp comes with a sack to store the tarp in, but i purchased a smaller granite gear ditty bag and stuff it into a XS bag so it comes out slightly smaller than a Nalgene. Way more easier to pack than the longer stock bag that it comes with. I use the longer stock bag as a storage sack because its a lot looser.

          I havent used this product in the rain yet. But it perform very well in the sun providing lots of shade. From what others have said it should work very well in the rain. Look forward to trying it out in wet condition.

              Here is the tarp. It had plenty of room and held up tp some pretty brutal winds (25-40).


              Worth it's weight in gold!

                I got this for the sole reason to bring to the beach for shade for my dogs. It was amazing. I have the 12 footer. Tons of shade, lots of room. I was able to fit 4 adults sitting in beach chairs and 2 dogs with plenty of room left over! It held up great to 20-30mph gusts of wind, I had to add a few extra sand stakes and guy lines to help out. Set up took about 15-20 (including sand stakes) minutes with 2 people. Without the stakes I am sure it would only take about 8-10 minutes. Overall I recomend this for a large, sturdy beach shade!!! The one down side is that my dogs's rope kept getting tangled up with the guy lines.

                Nice Tarp

                  I have enjoyed this tarp very much. It is light and easy to set up. It does exactly what its supposed to do, protect you from the elements, and does it well. Kelty makes a pretty good product. If fast, easy shade and shelter from the weather is what you're looking for, buy the Kelty Noah's Tarp.

                  easy to use

                    its great light wieght easy setup great for dining fly and to go over hamocks! A++++
