RAB's Silwing Tarp Shelter is a shaped tarp which allows for a more taught pitch than simple rectangular models.
At 8ft long by 7ft wide the Silwing provides approximately 56 sq ft (5.2 sq m) of coverage which is sufficient for up to 2 people. The seam line is catenary cut - its shaped to follow the natural curve between two suspended ends. The outside edges have dual curves so the roof rigs effortlessly into a taut smooth shape. Its very stable in wind and doesn't collect rain in pools at the edges.
With 8 reinforced light webbing tie-out points the SilWing can be set up on trekking poles or between trees in a versatile array of configurations. The edges are bound and reinforced with coated nylon to increase the seam strength and the tie out points durability. The SilWing is supplied with 30ft (9m) of 2.2mm ParaLine.

Rab's Silwing is a superbly designed tarp! Catenary cut tarps allow you to get a tighter pitch although they also allow more of the weather under the sides.
