The Hoopla™ 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 their gear from the elements. Compact and light enough to serve as a day-hiker’s “11th essential” emergency refuge, 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.
