Uncomplicated all-rounder for every occasion

When on a tour where every gram of weight counts, a tarp – depending on the planned goal – can be a smart alternative to a tent: It provides protection against rain, wind and sun as well as having many other uses. The tarpaulins are available from TATONKA in two different materials and in three or four different sizes.
TATONKA Tarps score points for their low weight and can, for example, be a practical addition to your equipment on longer tours with several people. When climate and weather conditions allow it, they can also be used in place of a trekking tent.

Tarps in polyester fabric are extremely lightweight and are therefore ideal for tours lasting several days where light and uncomplicated gear is required.

Tarps in cotton blend fabrics are heavier than polyester tarps and are therefore not suitable as touring gear. On the other hand, on a camping holiday, when you stay in one place for a longer time and would like to enjoy the comfort of a sun awning, these TC-Tarps are your first choice: Thanks to their high UV resistance they can also be used in areas of strong sunshine. They are also absolutely ideal for use in the garden to provide shade.

If nature has not provided any possibilities such as strong branches or trees for anchoring your tarp in place, then the tarp rods from TATONKA provide the answer. They can be taken apart into individual pieces and are available in different lengths. The tarp rod Teleskop can be extended from 98 cm to a total length of 239 cm.
