OookWorks Whisper – Ultralight Micro Tarp


The OookWorks Whisper, ultralight micro tarp is one of the lightest shelters you could buy. It’s ideal for bivvying when you need ‘a little shelter’.

I’ve been testing the Whisper Micro Tarp now for about two years. I tried umpteen different corner constructions, testing them all on camps.

The Whisper is now my go-to super ultralight tarp for simple ultralight wild camping when there’s no rain forecast.

The OookWorks Whisper Micro-Tarp

A groundsheet is recommended with a mattress and bivvy if there’s any chance of a shower.

The Whisper will keep the wind from you and give you shelter.

Pitching the Whisper in Snowdonia

There are tabs on each corner and in the middle along each edge so it can be used as a hammock tarp or a lean-to. It’ll be interesting to see what configurations you come up with. It is a simple square tarp after all.

  • Silnylon micro tarp
  • 1500 x 1500mm
  • Tabs on four corners, four midpoints and centre
  • Micro tab on the inside centre for a light
  • Weighs 175 grams (183g in supplied 1-litre silnylon stuff sack)
  • Made with ♥ by hand in England


  • Comes with 10m of black paracord for you to configure it your way – if you would like me to loop each corner and the front and back guys (no cost) please just let me know in the ‘notes’ when you pay.

Seam Sealing

Our tarps do not come seam sealed. This can be a messy business so it’s up to you. It is strongly recommended that sewn seams are sealed so they don’t let water through. Either take a look on YouTube to mix your own sealer or use McNett SilNet.

Erecting the micro tarp is very easy and fast.

Pin down the back corner and stand your trekking pole next to the stake. Pull the front corner taut and guy to a tree or your other pole (about three feet away). Peg the wing corners down, night and taut. Run a four-metre line from the front pole, clip to the middle tab of the tarp, wrap around the back pole and peg the line. That’s it.
