Gear Guide 2009: MSR Zing Tent Review

This tarp is best for groups of campers.

Got a crowd to cover? With 200 square feet of silnylon, the Zing will shelter up to 12 snoozers. It’s not light, but has eight guyout points and comes with two poles, which provide A-frame support in tree-free areas. $350; 5 lbs, 10 oz. (2 lbs. 14 oz. without poles).
