FAQ & Care

Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I buy the Swiftlet Shade Kit without the tarp?

If you already have one of our compatible Kuhli tarps (not including the Kuhli XL), then you might opt to use your Kuhli instead of the Swiftlet Shade Kit tarp.

Is the tarp included with the Swiftlet Shade Kit waterproof?

The tarp features a DWR coating that is waterproof, however the included tarp provides less coverage than a Kuhli and will not provide complete rain protection outside of a light rain.

What's the difference between the shade that’s included in the kit compared to a Kuhli weather shelter?

Kuhli weather shelters provide more coverage and rain protection than the included tarp. They also feature more connection points to keep your tarp secure in more extreme conditions.

Are Kuhli weather shelters compatible with the Swiftlet Shade Poles?

All Kuhli weather shelters, except for the Kuhli XL, are compatible with the Swiftlet Shade Poles.

What tarp should I buy for rain protection when camping in my Swiftlet?

For maximum protection from wind and rain, we recommend using a Kuhli tarp with your Swiftlet Shade Poles. Kuhli Pro also provides a heat-reflective interior that can be used to add insulation or reflect heat from the sun.

Will the Swiftlet Shade Kit work with my Dragonfly?

The Swiftlet Shade Poles feature caps that allow you to wrap your Dragonfly ridgeline and suspend your bug net for extra protection in your Swiftlet.

Can I use a non-Kammok tarp on the Swiftlet Poles?

The Swiftlet Shade Kit can be used with other non-Kammok tarps, but we cannot guarantee fit and performance.

Will it work in all Swiftlet modes: chair, lounge, and extension bar?

Swiftlet Shade Poles are full adjustable, allowing you to configure your tarp in any Swiftlet setup mode.

Can I use these poles on other non-Kammok products or hammock stands?

No: The Swiftlet Shade Poles are designed specifically to fit the tube profile of the Swiftlet.
