Before camping went hi-tech, there were tarps. Tarps were the tool used for everything, especially shelter. Tarps are still a staple in any camping gear set up, but they’re often relegated to lesser tasks—ground cover or for covering equipment. But camping tarps have more potential than just that.
The Kuhli Pro is the latest product from camping gear company Kammok. Made of Amphibiskin X, a 15-nedier seam-taped ripstop nylon that is Silicone/PU/DWR coated, the Kuhli Pro boasts a reflective interior that returns heat to the space that it is covering. It is also fully waterproof, keeping the elements at bay. The Kuhli Pro also has 10 guy line attachment points that have convenient cord lock adjustments, making it more versatile and easier to tie down. Each guy line is reincorfed with Hypalon (a flexible and durable synthetic material that has earned a solid reputation for being resistant to temperature and UV). With six possible configurations, you can set up the Kuhli Pro to cover up to 108 square feet. And since it only weighs 26 ounces, adding it to your gear won’t be a huge burden. It comes with eight stakes and knotless cords and is carried in an included compact stuff sack. The Kuhli Pro retails for $199.
