056 Tarptent Talk with Owner Henry Shires
Henry Shires created a tarp style tent for his Pacific Crest Trail thru hike in 1999 and this was the beginning of what would become his company Tarptent.
He mentions how his products have changed from single walled tarps to a multitude of double wall styles. Even the name Tarptent is not very accurate because of this transition.
When you find a style that you like, enter CASCADE HIKER PODCAST on the line for "how did you hear about us" at checkout and let Henry know that his time was well spent here.
