Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp Square

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good value, excellent quality 10x10 ft/ 3x3 m square sil tarp. Ideal for car campers, backpackers who don’t mind trading a little more weight for greater coverage and durability, hammockers who want lots of coverage, or anyone else in need of a highly configurable, durable tarp with lots of webbing loop tie-outs (19 of them!). Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp--Square Aqua Quest is a company that has been making waterproof gear since 1994. The company bills itself as “The World Leader in Waterproof.”… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Cot Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars Great idea for a lightweight shelter for cot sleepers. This is a very well designed and constructed piece of gear. It is simple to set up and very compact when packed. It is light enough to pack in with you if you are so inclined. The inner screen tent can be set up without the fly for protection from bugs with great ventilation. The mesh screen continues around the bottom of the tent to rest on the surface of the cot and provide a fully enclosed space. The fly is designed to work only with the… Full review

Kelty Noah's Tarp 9

rated 5 of 5 stars She's an amazing beast. I've had mine for a couple years now, and regularly use it in wind, rain, and snow. The best thing I can probably say about this product is the time that it saved my hammock, down sleeping bag, and down underquilt from a flash flood. When the flowing water and debris pulled out my tent stakes, the tarp wrapped around everything and kept it all literally bone dry in the flowing creek water throughout the remainder of the storm. It was truly incredible. The adventure gods,… Full review

Appy Trails Mark V

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight and a lot of room. I got this as a way of reducing my load on summer-friendly climate trips.. Well, I bought too much tent. This thing is big, and not just big but with an extraordinarily high peak, something like 5' high at the door. The tent is essentially a lightweight version of a tent once used by the Boy Scouts for events like Piedmont. It requires either the lightweight pole that is supplied or a trekking pole. The foot end requires a 12" aluminum rod that keeps that end of the… Full review

YAMA Mountain Gear Cirriform Tarp 1P - 0.8 oz Dyneema

rated 5 of 5 stars Versatile quality, handmade, full weather protection in a sleek design. I purchased the DW Cirriform in .8 cuben but use the tarp alone during the shoulder season and have grown to love the versatility of the entire kit. I was hesitant to switch to cuben/dynemma after only using sil shelters for so long, but the weight savings in this piece while still having full weather protection from anything that nature throws your way is exhilarating!  Gen at Yama is great to work with and understanding of… Full review

Bushcraft Outfitters 10' x 10' Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars A "bomb-proof" tarp best used as a hammock or ground shelter. Not UL, but what you give up in weight, you gain in versatility and durability. I recommend it as a high-quality, Made in the USA product offered at a reasonable cost. I've owned the coyote version of this tarp for the past several years, and I've used it for overnight ground shelters and hammock cover in the Eastern U.S. Hammock Shelter Included Stuff Sack Tautly-pitched in A-frame Corner tab tie-out The difficulty of setup depends on… Full review

DD Hammocks Tarp 3x3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very versatile!! I've had my tarp set up in a number of places—windy mountain tops, forest and woodland, lakesides, and even in the urban city sprawl. The DD 3x3 tarp is bigger enough and has enough guides to fit anywhere. Great product. Great price. The DD 3x3 tarp is a very strong but lightweight tarp that can be set up in any environment to keep you out of the weather. It's worthwhile playing around with it before you head out and practice makes perfect with this tarp and you will soon find… Full review

Paria Sanctuary SilTarp

rated 4 of 5 stars Very light, strong, and compact tarp. I bought this tarp kit because it was the same price ($79.99) as other tarps I'd seen, and this kit comes with guy lines and stakes, all in a sil nylon bag. The guy lines are 9 feet long (there are 6 of them) so you can adjust the hanging of the tarp in a variety of ways.  After I learned how to properly hang the tarp over a hammock, this one hangs quickly and easily. The only thing I would like to have is a tab on the side, right in the middle. There are four… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Flat Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an ultralight, absolutely waterproof tarp for multiple day hikes. It is of very good quality and it fits into the storage bag it comes with. I replaced the guy lines, and the 8'x10' flat tarp now weighs 320g including the stuff sack without stakes. I have used this tarp on four multi-day hiking trips in the Dolomites/Italy and it shows no wear. I use it with the Katabatic Gear Bristlecone Bivy, and there has never been any condensation on the bivy. It is easy to set up. I always use my trekking… Full review
