Light and waterproof - but

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this tarp for a 9 -day ocean canoeing expedition in South East Alaska. It is certainly waterproof, rain beads up and runs off better than anything I've used. The attachment points on the corners and in the center are reinforced with hypalon, which make them very strong, but when I set this tarp up in a "floating a-frame" configuration, the attachment points at the center of the ridge-line (in the middle of the 8 ft sides) are not reinforced, and I am already seeing some small areas where the strong thread used to sew on the attachment points is pulling holes in the fabric. I will be embarking on a 48 day expedition soon, and am worried that this tarp may not withstand the forces that I need to use to guy it out in strong wind and weather. I'll need a more heavy-duty material for my purposes. I can absolutely recommend it in conditions where heavy wind and constant rain will not be a concern.

Light as a Feather

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love this tarp. It is light and versatile. The first time out with it one of the loops ripped out (it wasn't one of the reinforced corners or center loop; those are bomb proof), but ID replaced it really fast, just had to pay the shipping to get it there. The one they sent is doing just fine so I think it was probably an isolated incident. The only real complaint I have is that the tag on the product said that it includes seam sealer for it but the one I purchased here, nor the one they sent to replace it came with seam sealer...Otherwise a great tarp!

Awesome Tarp!

I bought this to use over my hammock and it worked great. Lightweight, strong. And Backcountry's price is great. If you've been considering a tarp, this would be a good one. The green color blends nicely with surroundings and doesn't yell "here I am!"

great light-weight shelter

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm super stoked on this tarp. It's incredibly light-weight and it packs down to nothing in you back-pack.

Despite the seemingly flimsy material, this tarp is stout. I've been caught in several torrential down-pours with this shelter, as well intense winds and below freezing temperatures and after two years there are still no signs of fraying and no leaks, not even in the seam at the ridge-line.

This shelter is plenty big. Even though it says it's a two-man you can easily fit three people with all their gear. It also makes for a perfect kitchen tarp. All in all, this is a key piece of gear.

Nice Light and Strong

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If I decided to not carry a tent, this is what I would bring. I use it for a place to get out of long rain events for lots of people. Can suspend easily with poles using the beefy webbing loops.

Awesome Siltarp

    I absolutely love this siltarp, its super lightweight, compact. Very easy setup however you would like to use it. this material practically has the rain jump right off of it. The one thing i would say it needs to happen to it is to seam seal the inner stitching across the middle.
