Live on Kickstarter now, and yes this is an idea we know will come to market and be successful, the Original TripTarp for Backpacking is what we believe to be the first multi-purpose tarp designed for gear organization and trip planning in this space. And by multi-purpose we mean you actually bring it with you on your backpacking trip, and it doubles as a tarp and emergency bivy.
The creators of TripTarp, themselves commercial backpacking guides, say it’s about bettering the wilderness experience; it’s a fresh take on a gear organization method already used by backpackers worldwide, and it has multiple uses in the field.
-Exhaustive, categorized master gear list
-Gear organization Flex-Zones for sorting
-Bold iconography for fast gear placement
-Backpacking best practices tips and reminders
-10 Essentials list sorted by category
-Emergency notification reminders, tips and best practices
-Made from 70-denier silnylon fabric with DWR coating
-Sewn corner loops and edge grommets
-8.6 ounce total weight, 5×7 feet
Gear nerds and backpacking wonks now have one master list, permanently inked, and it just takes all of the guesswork and remembering out of packing for those very important backcountry trips where you don’t want to forget anything, and can’t afford to carry anything you don’t need.
TripTarp combines actual physical organization in any location with list-based planning, for what they call an “experiential” packing process. And we like it.
