I've had my Kelty Noah's Tarp for while now, and it's become an essential part of my gear list for almost any trip, especially as I tend to hammock camp more frequently. It pairs perfectly with a hammock, because it has significant overlap to protect from windy rain, and comfortably allows room for protecting gear hanging from hammock straps.

With plenty of metal grommets and straps across the whole tarp, their are many shelter variations - I keep 4 quality cords with the tarp at all times, and can have a shelter hanging in almost any environment in a matter of minutes. This was crucial for a couple rainy nights on the road, and will continue to be a 'top-5' gear item for my trips.
