Although primarily designed to provide loads of additional space for front opening tents the Diamond Tarp provides enough versatility to use as a stand alone shelter. This SI version is lightweight, strong and ideal for regular use.
Tailored protection against dew, rain and sun. Voss Diamond SI is a diamond shaped tarp tailored to fit tents with a front opening like Halland 2 SI, Oppland 2 and 3 SI – but it can also be attached tents like Finnmark 2 SI, Faxe 2 and 4 SI. Voss Diamond offers extra space and protection to the tent without adding extra weight or stuffing to your backpack. Use the extra space for extra storage, or simply for liing, by creating a msall porch just outside of the tent. Voss Diamond is made of highly durable and stretchable nylon with a three layer silicone coating on each side. Reflective guy ropes are included, but poles and pegs must be bought separately.
Nordisk's Voss Diamond SI Tarp is designed to work with a tent to provide a large, additional vestibule style space or as a more traditional tarp shelter. With the diamond shape you get 6 reinforced points with guy lines attached and an additional 8 points that can also be pegged or guyed out to provide plenty of different options depending on what you need. This shape allows you to use it with a front opening tent and although it is tricky at first it is well worth it for the extra space you get from it. Alternately, you can fashion a shelter from the elements to cook or camp under in a more basic tarp style. The number of points you can use to get the best shape and protection is the best feature of this tarp.
This is the SI version which means that it is nylon treated with silicone on both sides. This means that it is much lighter and stronger but it is a lot more expensive than the PU treated version.
