With a massive 16m² of tarp to play with (or play under), the 4 Square provides a rain-free group shelter for campsites, bushcraft base camps and expeditions.

  • 16 attachment points allow multiple pitching options
  • Can be used as a porch extension for large tents/campervans
  • A-frame pitch provides shelter for 4-8 campers when bivvying

With 16 attachment points around the edge, the 4 Square can be set up in a traditional A-frame to cover 4-8 bivviers (a bevy of bivviers?!) or with one side closed off to provide a more complete shelter. The simple design allows plenty of pitching options including as a porch extension to your tent or campervan.

Covering such a large surface area in 1.3kg and a 25cm x 31cm pack-size makes the 4 Square a useful additional extra shelter to pack for group expeditions. 16m² provides plenty of coverage when you need a temporary sheltered workspace.

The tarp is made from waterproof (5,000HH) and durable (190T) polyester, providing a reliable shelter in unreliable weather. Polyester has a lower stretch than most fabrics, allowing a taught and secure pitch. All attachment points are reinforced with bar-tack stitching to be extra hardwearing.

Product Care Information

To extend your tarp’s life (and stop it smelling like a damp Scout hut) make sure that it’s fully dry before packing away and store it in a cool, dry place.
