A large, lightweight tarp that allows you to use it in a variety of ways. The Onyx provides a range of shelter options to get you comfortable and protected from the elements with a number of useful extras that other tarps would not include.

Big Agnes says:

With more options than a Swiss Army knife, this is the go-to tarp for the thru-hiker, minimalist, or ultralight connoisseur. Barely weighing more than your key chain, this easy-to-use tarp can be set up in multiple configurations. The Onyx UL can be tied over a hammock, pitched over a sleeping bag, erected over a kitchen snow pit, or used as an emergency rain shelter over your raft and can be stowed away in the smallest of spaces.

Big Agnes' Onyx UL Tarp uses silicon treated rip-stop which is waterproof and durable. It comes with pegs, guylines, a stuff sack and pole. As with any tarp, once you have worked out how best to use it to suit your needs with numerous guy points, it becomes a vital peice of kit. Since to Onyx is so light and provides such good coverage it is a great shelter option no matter what you are doing.

The inclusion of the DAC Featherlite pole is great as it provides further versatility. Use it instead of a walking pole to support the edge of the tarp or use it in the specially designed tabs on the inside of the tarp to provide more headroom or leave it to save even more weight.

Super lightweight shelter

Bought this tarp last year, it's a cracking bit of kit, over a hammock, or as a tarp shelter. Plenty of configurations to be made. Packs up small, and very light. Once you buy this, you'll end up going ultralight on all your gear! Superb
