Paul B. 09.01.22
When you think of tarps for camping, you may immediately think of oiled canvas, paracord guidelines to nearby trees, and ridge poles. Cinch is taking a modern approach with a quick setup, allowing you more time to enjoy the outdoors.
The Shelter by Cinch is a dedicated tarp shelter with two support poles, tent style collapsible pole to shape the entry door, stakes, and guidelines. Made from 3,000HH rip stop polyester, this tarp shelter is built to last.

Cinch is the creation of Jake Jackson, a lifelong camper whose quest to find the perfect tent for festivals and wilderness weekends led him to take matters into his own hands.
Jake’s vision was simple: camping should be fun, easy & affordable, not suck away your time, money, and sanity. The world’s first Cinch – a simple & reliable pop-up with a porch – was made in his mum’s garage, just for himself.
Fast-forward a decade and people across the globe are camping in Jake’s tents. Built on the shoulders of the amazing crowdfunding community, Cinch has developed into an international team of dedicated outdoor enthusiasts.
The vision remains the same, by collaborating closely with our backers we create special tents, full of bright ideas, that you can’t find anywhere else.
With a width of 150in, depth of 112in, and a center height of 78in – the Shelter by Cinch does offer a good amount of covered space. Packing into a 25 in by 8 in bag with a carry handle and a weight of 15.5 lbs., this would be a nice addition to car, truck, and van campers looking for a quality tarp shelter with quick setup. Included with your purchase is the shelter canvas, carry case, half-moon entrance pole, 2 center poles, 9 clip-on storm straps, 15 stakes, and a repair kit.
