The Hoopla™ from Mountain Hardwear is a simple air-light floorless shelter designed for the minimalist. One Trussring™, one hiking staff, and a single layer of thin structural fabric separates the thru-hiker and his or her gear from the elements. Compact and light enough to serve as a day-hiker’s “11th essential” emergency refuge, yet large enough to serve as a backpacking group shelter—seats 4. Traditional round shape deflects wind; modern structure and reinforced stretchless seams keep it light and add stability.
