A throwback to an early Mountainsmith design, the lightweight Mountain Shelter LT tarp tent provides effective weather-protection for up to two backpackers.


A throwback to an early Mountainsmith design, the lightweight Mountain Shelter LT tarp tent provides effective weather-protection for up to two backpackers. Focused on weight-saving packability, the Mountain Shelter LT pitches easily with the use of two trekking poles (not included). With a packed weight of just 1 pound, 15.5 ounces, it can also serve as a spacious solo tent.

The Mountain Shelter LT provides 54 square feet of protected interior space. A rear vent allows air to circulate and combats condensation build-up. The lightweight, waterproof Si-Nylon Ripstop fabric boasts an impressive tear-strength ratio while keeping packed weight to a minimum. A zippered front door grants easy access and ensures enclosed protection. NOTE: A minimalist shelter, the Mountain Shelter LT does not include a floor.

A dual-peak design allows the Mountain Shelter LT to be erected with two adjustable trekking poles (not included). The steep pitch of the shelter effectively sheds both rain and snow, making the Mountain Shelter LT surprisingly weather-resistant. Multiple stake out loops and included V-stakes let you pitch the shelter securely.

The Mountainsmith Mountain Shelter LT tarp tent is available in your choice of color options.

  • Rear panel ventilation window
  • Sets up with 2 standard trekking poles: 53H at front and 40H at back
  • Two person layout
  • Three season tarp
  • Zippered single door entry
  • Reflective guylines with tensionlock cord adjustment
  • Reflective highlights for all stake out points
  • Reinforced V-stakes

This is probably one of the best lightweight tarps I have found yet. Comparable products for coverage and weight would be hundreds more.


Price is excellent. Plenty of room, we actually fit three on a few nights. Sets up like a tent. Guy lines can use stakes or any available trees. Ease to set up. Lightweight. Not many shelters can be found at this weight.


bugs get in. Woke up with feet out side but thats because I move alot.

Tarp and food


All.... Tarp set up fast....all the food tasted very good...





Love it


Light weight, simple, effective


None so far. Not having a floor takes a little getting used to.
