    Kelty Noah Tarp

    I looking to buy this and I can't seem to find a picture of the tarp in actual use with trees. All of the pictures I've seen just show the tarp set up with poles at ends holding it up.

    I would just like to see what an actual camping picture of this tarp would look like. If there is one out there that exists.

    I haven't seen a pic of one in action. Could be here somewhere.
    Look at Neo's SG 12x12 and that is what it would look like. Think lite grey.

    Dang, looks like I need to use some extra D-rings and rope just to stretch the tarp out. All that little stuff adds up.

    Not d-rings ah ha ha, I was thinking of something else.

    I'll just need a bunch of little pieces of rope to make it tight.

    Thanks for finding the photos :-)

    Yeah, it looks simple enough now. Four pieces of rope altogether. Two for the side tiedowns and one for each end of the tarp to tie to the tree. I think...

    Its's a good tarp and 3oz. lighter than the Sportsman Guide tarp. The 9x9 gives plenty of coverage .
