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.

The videos will show you how a tent can have only one pole and two stakes... It was an eye opener for me!

If you haven't been, I highly recommend checking out their website:

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.
