This is a no-frills sil-nylon tarp. It has a nice asymmetrical shape, and super easy to set-up. I have slept thru some harsh weather (wind, snow & rain) with out any problems.

The one big plus with this design is the triangle panel at the foot area. This adds a lot of protection in the wind, and makes for easier set-up and getting a nice shape.

The one negative is the length. I am tall (6' 1") and I wish there was a little more in length. I feel like my head is too close to the open area in a storm. THis is the one thing that kept me from giving this product a 5. If you are a tiny bit shorter, it'll be a perfect shelter for you.

Highly recommended.

I just recieved a GoLite Lair 2 tarp tent. The literature says you can set up w/ 1 pole, you can adjust high or low, you can adjust from inside the tent.

Contrary to what the literature says:
1. Unless you want the tent fabric to flap in the wind and sag, two poles are needed!
2. Unless you add some extensions to the stake tie outs, they are way to short to pitch it high or low.
3. Unless you have really long arms, there is no way you will adjust the tension from inside the tent like the literature says.
