“ray-way” tarptent – single person. Though in a storm pitched low, two could easily fit 2 people under it. Shortly after ray jardine published his designs for light weight packing, the company golite teamed with ray to make commercial versions of his designs. This sale is for the commercially made golite versions of both the tarp and the bug net with bathtub floor. Everything is seam sealed and in great shape. The pictures above are of the exact model, though i live in a condo with no place to set it up. So, i snagged some google search photos. Photo one has the bug net inside, photo two does not. If you want to see many photos of this, you can google ray-way tarptent. Ray sells kits to make your own and lot’s of folks love showing off pictures of their finished projects. This design is the actual ray design and made by golite. It has the overlapping horizontal flap on the front of the bug-net for sealing. Later models added a zipper to the front instead (my opinion, added weight with no real advantage). Search google for ray jardine tarptent to find it. Tarp with stuff sack – 15 oz stuffed size – 8″ x 6″! Bug net with bathtub floor – 11oz -stuff size – 10″x6″. – both could be compressed even smaller, but that is the size of the sacks. Standard setup is with two trekking poles. You will need six stakes. To use the side lifters, a couple more stakes could be used. However, i always use available rocks or other tie off points for those rare occasion when i used the lifters. For the weight, it covers more space than anything i have ever seen. If the weather gets bad, this can be setup low and wide like an airplane wing and it will ride out almost any wind with plenty of room for your gear to stay dry too. These are a bit of an art to setup, but with a few practice runs – it’s a breeze (and it impresses the heck out of other hikers). I highly recommend you learn to make a clove hitch knot to wrap around the stakes. It is secure and when you slide the stakes out, the knot just disappears – brilliant. I have two of these. I bought the golite version, and then for a hiking mate i made another one from scratch. I need to sell one. My sewing technique is functional however not always pretty. No rips, tears, or repairs. Happy hiking season folks! Enjoy the long trails.The item “Ray-Way Golite Tarptent with bugnet gray” is in sale since Tuesday, March 03, 2015.
