The MSR Zing Shelter is a big ol' tarp which is great for protecting large areas from sun and rain. The two included poles allow you to set it up over picnic tables or a big pile of packs and gear. It packs down to a small size and is great to take along on any trip where you know there's a good chance of precipitation and you want a big, protected hangout spot. My buddies and I had a Zing on a late fall camping trip (in addition to an MSR Backcountry Barn), and despite the constant rain and slush, we had a great time.
