A lightweight shelter for 1-2 people. The versatile shape, included pole and peg/guy points make this tarp easy to use almost anywhere.
The Wing is a universal shelter with a catenary cut. It can be combined with most tents to provide an entrance area protected from the elements. It can also be set up on its own as ultra light weather protection. Reinforced tie-out loops and cords with the tension locks make the wing very stable. The wing is offered in two different materials. The wing comes with one 150cm pole and a set of stakes. We offer poles of various lengths in our accessories.

Wechsel's Wing UL Tarp is impressively lightweight for a shelter with this much versatility. As with all Wechsel products it is top quality so you can be confident with its ability to cope in different conditions and on its durability. The shape of the tarp means that you can easily adjust it to suit the conditions and reinforced loops give you confidence it will work once you have it sorted.
The tarp comes with a 150cm pole that can be used to give a solid point to shape the shelter but if you're staying somewhere, with trees for example, where you don't need it you can save yourself over 200g in weight. There are also pegs supplied but you really need to use a good amount of guylines to make the most of this tarp. It works well as a sun shade and as a shelter from wind and rain. You just need to practice setting it up in different configurations to be able to set it up quickly and easily in whatever conditions you are faced with.
