Out of the massive collection of ultralight backpacking tents, Onyx tarps, and minimalist shelters from Big Agnes, the Onyx Tarp Carbon is the lightest shelter available for backpacking. Its Dyneema fabric is surprisingly durable for the whole tarp only weighing ten ounces, and it's ruggedly rainproof for reliable protection in wet weather. The Onyx Tarp Carbon can easily be set up in a wide variety of configurations, making it a must-have for any thru-hiker, minimalist backpacker, or ultralight enthusiast. You can pitch it over your sleeping bag on the trail, tie it over a hammock, or create an emergency rain shelter for your raft, and it's ultra compact when packed away. The included Easton carbon strut can increase headroom at the ceiling, or you can replace one of the required trekking poles for less weight.
