RAB says:

The Silwing is a versatile, light-weight shelter with a catenary cut to provide maximum protection from the elements, designed for fast-and-light adventures.

The seven sided tarp provides 5m² of coverage underneath an ultralight Sil-Coat™ Cordura® fabric, which is fully waterproof and incredibly strong. The Silwing is extremely versatile and can be set up using anything from trekking poles to trees. Multiple light-weight webbing loops allow for a variety of setup options and a stuff sack is included for quick-and-easy transportation..

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.

Strong light weight waterproof

This is the first tarp I have ever bought after years of using tents. I wanted to see the sky at night for a change. I found it very easy to put up, being new to tarps. I use a walking pole on the front and a selfie stick on the back. I used it in fields on hills and in woodland. I had it in heavy rain and my sleeping bag remained dry. If you're new to tarps or want a good light weight tarp then this is for you.

Waterproof. Flexible. Robust.

This is a great tarp giving plenty of options in terms of how to pitch. I've used it in all seasons and weathers in the Scottish Highlands and it has never let me down. Super lightweight and packable with an almost silky feel. It's tough though and with the foot end pegged flush to the ground and directed into the wind, it will keep the weather out.

I use it with MSR mini groundhog pegs and get a good taut set up that feels solid even in strong winds. I'd recommend having two walking poles so if the weather is fair you can pitch it high at both ends to give a bit more room. I'd recommend the Leki poles with the swift and easy click lock.

Even with the foot end flush to the ground it will provide enough room for two people - you'll probably struggle a bit to get much kit under there so if you are cohabiting I'd take a poncho to wrap kit up in. Fjällräven's poncho is pricey but very reliable.

Highly recommended - it's been with me for a couple of years now and still feels brand new. One of my favourite pieces of kit, if not my favourite.
