Setting up the Batwing Camping Tarp to show its features. This tarp is great for heading out into bad weather, because it covers a huge 16 x 16 foot area. It comes with stakes and all the reflective cordage. You can put 2 tents underneath or sleep 7 people. Perfect for minimalist overnight hikers looking to sleep a group or covering a whole campsite car camping.
Imagine yourself on a camping trip and you want to protect your tent from the rain. You have space underneath this giant tarp to pitch a tent and use the rest as a common area awning, covering a picnic table and camp chairs. Additionally, the UV coating on the fabric, acts as a sunshade if you reverse it. Amazing in the summer as well!
Go backpacking into the woods or mountains? Bring a lot the Batwing to provide a mutual cooking and gathering area, when you are in the backcountry with friends. It's a real morale booster, when you have a large shelter to get out of the weather.
Heading on a long hike with friends? Sleep up to 7 people under this tarp, just pair it with a groundsheet and now you have a killer lightweight group shelter, that everyone can share. Now that is a spacious idea!
A clever-hiker can pair this tarp, with a Luxe inner tent. This gives you a bathtub floor with bug protection, which you can use as your sleeping area. Then you have a huge area to hangout in out of the weather, to read a book or relax in your favorite camp chair.

Batwing Tarp Overview
Let's take a look the Batwing group tarp by Luxe. You could set it up by using tent poles, wood that you find in the forest or hang it from trees.
You can see the 16' x 16' tarp is huge!
Setting Up and Tarp Features
Here I've laid it out flat the direction I want to set it up.
The Batwing comes with these sewn in pockets to store the cord, which come with the tarp.
On the main ridgeline, you could find these aluminum grommets to hook the tarp poles.
Reflective Sun Tarp Cover
In the summer months, you can use the UV blocking coating, to provide shade in your campsite. This tarp is fully reversible.
Tips and Tricks for Set-up
A simple trick to setting up the tarp, is to stake it out a few inches away from the four corners first.
One at a time, add the tarp poles.
The Batwing has two main ridgelines to help with stability. It is important to have the main ridgeline very tight at this stage.
Then you add stakes to all four corners, with the cord at a 45 degree angle away from the tarp, and finally you add the last two stakes on the lateral walls.
