The SplitWing is our most minimal shelter for people whose top priority is achieving the lowest weight possible without compromising weather coverage. Designed with thru-hikes and FKTs in mind, the SplitWing and its modular accessories are adaptable to the wide range of conditions that are likely to be encountered on a 4-month-plus adventure.

When used on its own, the SplitWing is palatial for one and cozy for two. A pair of hardcore UL hikers (or very close friends) will appreciate sharing a shelter that packs down to the size of a grapefruit and weighs less than two packs of ramen per person. 

At 7.9oz without the 6 included DAC j-stakes (10.3oz all-in), the SplitWing is damn light. Strategically-placed reinforcements made of our Expedition Series fly fabric keep the SplitWing in one piece when conditions get gnarly. 

Unlike most shaped tarps, the SplitWing can be pitched with the front trekking pole anywhere between 105cm-120cm thanks to its front "wings", allowing you to prioritize floor area and storm protection with a low pitch, or provide generous headroom when pitched high. It's closed at the foot end to reduce drafts and increase weather protection.

The optional vestibule covers the front opening of the tarp, providing 360-degree coverage, perfect for those who are looking for the light weight of a minimal tarp shelter but would rather not give up the comfort and security of a tent. Add the SplitWing Mesh Body and the full system offers all the protection, versatility, and coziness of a double-wall tent but at a scant 21oz trail weight!

Check out the SplitWing Bundle to get the SplitWing, the Mesh Body, and Vestibule together at a discount!

Ultralight and rarely had condensation
Hey Cabbage! Glad the SplitWing worked for you! Do you have any photos of the seams leaking? This is the first we've ever heard of this issue. We'd like to get a look at your tarp to see if this is just an isolated incident or something we need to address on a larger scale. If you could send me an email at tim@slingfin.com that would be great!
