Hyperlite Mountain Gear Flat tarp
The ultimate in versatility! Flat Tarps are exactly what passionate adventurers need and nothing more. HMG Flat Tarp allow for multiple set-up configurations based on weather conditions, terrain or need. Set up multiple configurations depending on weather conditions, terrain or need; it’s designed with flat edges and square corners rather than the typical catenary cut. These tarps allow for a pitch lower to the ground versus a typical catenary cut. Have fun experimenting using paddles, trekking poles, ski poles or even skis to create a pyramid, A-frame, modified A-frame or lean-to shape, among others.
Made with durable and 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabrics (formerly Cuben Fiber) and with fully bonded seals, these ultralight tarps are optimized for strength, weight, performance and versatility. Stake kits are sold separately, and we recommend you utilize adjustable trekking poles for set up. Available in Classic White or Spruce Green. Use with the Echo Inserts for protection from bugs and water.

Review from bikepacker.com
"The Hyperlite Mountain Gear flat tarp is not your beginner’s tarp. This is not a piece of nylon with grommets. Using thoughtful tie-outs on high end material, along with fine craftsmanship, this tarp is an extremely lightweight and capable option. While we only got hit with rain once, knowing the capabilities of this tarp in the wet I would not hesitate to suggest this tarp even in the expectation of inclement weather (but extra stakes and stiffer poles would be recommended)."
