The flat tarp is the quintessential multi-purpose shelter, prized for its versatility, simplicity, and roominess. A flat tarp can be adapted to just about any set of conditions by changing the pitch, and is equally at home as an emergency shelter on a day-long ski tour or as a group hangout for cooking on a rainy backpacking trip.

Our NFT is a 9.5' x 10' flat tarp that addresses several qualms we had with most flat tarps by adding subtle catenary curves around the long edges, which make for a gorgeous, taut pitch in the A-frame configuration, unlike straight-edged tarps, which tend to flap due to bias stretch in the large side panels. However, we didn't add a caternary cut to the ridgeline seam so your pitching configurations wouldn't be limited to an A-frame. We also added cord tensioners at both ends of the guylines to make trekking pole positioning straightforward and quick.

Our 10D NY66 ripstop sil/sil fabric is perfect for the NFT. It has already been field-proven in our Portal, SplitWing, and 2Lite. It's ludicrously packable, has a terrific strength-to-weight ratio, absorbs less water (and sags less) than PU-coated fabrics, and has astounding UV resistance.

The NFT comes loaded with 6 pre-attached 1.5mm reflective Dyneema guylines, 4 accessory guylines, and 12 of the larger 8" long DAC J-stakes so you can pitch the NFT anywhere, any way.

With its packability, light weight, and practically unlimited pitch configurations, we'll think you'll agree... this is a Nice Flat Tarp.
