Built with ultralight 7D sil/PU nylon, the Rival tarp offers full coverage in a tiny package. It’s factory seam-taped and fully waterproof to keep you nice and dry through the night. The Rival comes with 7 reinforced tie-out points so you can pitch the Rival using your trekking poles, sticks, nearby trees, or stakes. Ridgeline tie-outs and generous length allow you to pitch the foot end more vertically with full storm coverage. Designed to pair with the Recon bivy, the Rival includes interior loops at the head and foot end for easy attachment. Tie-out points include LineLocs for quick tension adjustments, and the LineLocs are girth-hitched in place so you can easily remove them. You can choose between three fabric colors.

This is the perfect addition to your pack to keep your sleep system simple, ultralight, and effective.

EE Rival Tarp - Two thumbs up!

My Rival tarp came yesterday.
It is very well constructed.
I liked:
Size and weight.
Little or no seam sealing. Out of the box, no leaks!
Tie outs / Pitching options.
Bug bivy loops to keep the mesh off your face and quilt.
Line locks work.
I prefer to cowboy camp while backpacking. I count the shooting stars, satellites, and oh ya the BP drones (it's Arizona right?)as I fall asleep. I only need a tarp or tent when I expect rain. The light weight of this tarp allows me to carry it full time.
Out on the lawn I quickly tried several pitches, imagining several environmental conditions. Your imagination is the only limit as to how you pitch it.
Then it started to rain! I left the tarp pitched high and wide. This morning there was beading water on the outside, and no moisture on the inside. I was surprised to find no sag in the pitch even though it rained all night.
Unexpected rain is no longer a worry.
Thanks to EE for prompt customer support.
