    Heavy duty waterproof tarp shelter Finally got the tarp out into the woods of the Mt. Hood national forest down to the Jefferson wilderness area. Strung up two hammocks under the Aqua Quest Defender tarp without issue in a modified A frame setup over a ridge line, rained all day and night and day and night and thankfully this tarp performed exactly as I would expect. Completely dry underneath. At 3.5lbs this will be my primary ground dwelling shelter during the summer and fall months unless the bugs are out of control. Love the lightweight storage bag as it includes space for paracord and dyneema line. The water beaded off the tarp nicely when folding and allowed for quick storage in the pouch to move along the trail in the AM. Lastly, once home I opened it up and it only took a couple hours for the water to dry with no residual musty smell I get from some of the silnylon tarps. Thanks for making such a bomber tarp

    Defender Camo 3x3m tarp Used for setting up a shelter by the fire both as a wind break and to protect from snow falling from tree limbs above. Despite the minus 10 degree weather, the tarp performed admirably. Get some msr groundhog stakes as the supplied stakes, while possibly adequate in soft to medium soils, are worthless in frozen ground. Did not deduct any stars for the stakes as the review is really about the tarp which is great and well worth the money.

    used bungee cords to secure it to tent stakes and hiking poles to make a tent like shelter. I am satisfied with it I bought this in place of an army poncho which apparently you cannot get anymore. I assume it is waterproof although I was not rained on during my campout with it. I used bungee cords to secure it to tent stakes and hiking poles to make a tent like shelter. I am satisfied with it. The 10ft by 10ft size makes it a bit heavier than the army poncho. There was easily room for 2 people and their packs under this when set up. I especially liked the loops around the perimeter. The main back of this shelter has a piece of webbing sewn into it for added strength. Overall I would recommend it for backpacking.

    5.0 out of 5 starsbut for my use it is perfect! Loops are well sewn and all stitching looks ... Tarp is well made and appears it will be durable for the long haul. Not an ultra light tarp for backpacking or a minimalist , but for my use it is perfect! Loops are well sewn and all stitching looks great, it goes up quick and will keep you very dry and protected if you know how to construct a decent shelter. Enjoy the outdoors!!

    Excellent Tarp A perfect sized tarp for so many configurations. This is a very good tarp for those looking for something heavy duty with lots of flexibility. It's not an ultralight tarp by any means but for those who may canoe camp or car camp it's just perfect. Not to say it can't be packed it's considerably heavier than a syl nylon tarp. Plenty of tie outs and a beefy ridge line seam make this tarp a joy to set up. Definitely an alternative to all the other tarps out there.

    As waterproof as they come! Top quality and they don't come any more waterproof than this. Multiple, reinforced tie down points along the edges and center seam allowing many configurations when putting this tarp up. My first experience with it was an overnight solo camping trip in the Cascade mountains in November. Rained off and on all night and into the next morning. Tarp performed beautifully and I stayed comfortably dry underneath in my hammock. It's not the lightest tarp but I didn't buy it for it's weight.

    He was very satisfied with it Gave as gift to my husband. He immediately took it on a week long hunting trip for his only shelter. He was very satisfied with it. It should be noted that there is an ultra light version of this type for those who count ounces. This is our second Aqua quest product. Great quality
