The Exped Arc Tarp provides full weather protection for up to 6 adults with gear. It attaches quickly to most tents and creates added covered space.
The tent veranda! It offers a protected area during rain and a shady spot for gear, bikes and visitors on a sunny day. Attaches to the tent with karabiners and adjustable guyline web. Fits Exped tents like Aries, Sirius II, Andromeda II and Venus II. Works as a stand alone tarp when both poles are deployed. Height and width are variable. The ideal add-on to 2 person tents.
Besides being a tent extension or tarp with poles, Exped's Arc Tarp functions well as a lightweight traditional tarp, when the poles are left at home.
Arc Tarp is the ideal family tent solution: instead of a big family tent, just connect 2 smaller tents with 1 or even 2 Arc Tarps. And when the kids grow older and want their own tent, let them have one of the small tents on their own.
