Did you know that bats are the only mammal capable of sustained flight? When you think about that, it is fascinating. That means a bats wing isn’t like a birds wing, but a mammals digits strung with a membrane in between. A wing, but just a little bit different.
In that sense, not dissimilar to the Mont Batwing Tarp: a tarp but just a little bit different.
The Mont Batwing is an ultralight tarp with multi-option pitching, tiny packed size and fast set-up.
Unique Mont designed Hold-Em-All support pockets securely grip the trekking pole handles while the pole tips are firmly in the ground. This reduces the chance of collapse and provides a more robust and safer support for the extended arrow-shaped ridgeline.
Combined with the Mont Batcave Mesh Tent, the Batwing is an ultralight 3-season shelter for one or two people.
Thank you to Greg from Paddy Pallin in Miranda for this photo of his campsite in the Royal National Park, NSW. Notice the clever use of fallen kangaroo tail grass trees collected not far from this spot.

Mammut is at Mont, joining over 20 of the best climbing brands available online and in-store.
In 1862, after completing a three-year rope-making apprenticeship and working as a journeyman, Kaspar Tanner started work as a rope-maker in the Swiss town of Dintikon. This heralded the birth of Mammut.
