    Great tarp for the money! Great tarp! Covered my hammock with extra room to put it up in porch mode on one side and down in the other. Lots of tie outs. First time out we had wind and rain. Stayed dry. Could even tie it semi closed.

    It will protect you from the rain and sun!! Amazing. Doesnt leak. Large. Sat in a rainstorm at Native Rhythms Festival in Melbourne in a good rain and stayed bone dry. Used three Kelty lightweight staff poles for the front, and tied it along a fence row on the back. Worked super. Unbelievably rainproof!!! I like the size too. We sat 6 people under it, with no problem.

    Quality to keep you dry I love this tarp. It has been with me on multiple back pack trips. It packs down into a bag about the size of two large fists which is amazing considering the actual size of the tarp. I use it as the primary shelter to my double parachute hammock and it works fantastically. The loops of the tarp are all in the right places for when it needs to be staked or tied down. Anytime I am under it I have never gotten wet. Not once. It has handle being tied to large dying trees, in strong winds, with thick sharp branches and has not been punctured at all. Since I purchased this tarp I have not, nor will I, go on any camping or back packing without it.

    My brother in law recommended this and has used his a lot I have not needed to use it yet. Light, compact. I have added some tent stakes. My brother in law recommended this and has used his a lot, he loves it! He lives in BC where it rains alot.

    Great and Durable Product, Worth the Money By far, the best tarp I have ever purchased for camping/working. During severe thunderstorms this tarp has not only kept me dry in my hammock but also a few ground sleepers who did not come prepared. Durable is the word I would use to explain this product. After it gets stuck on the huge thorns located in the swamps of Florida, I am able to untangle it and does not have holes or tears. Great product!!!

    Just buy it My only complaint is it doesn't come with a compression sack to really make it tiny. That being said, I used some webbing to cinch it down and it ends up being the size of a softball. For something that massive I can't tell you how big of a deal that is. Durable, 100% waterproof, ultralight, very well made, and definitely worth the money. Large enough to completely cover my hammock and gives me plenty of area to store all of my gear bone dry in Southeast Alaska rainforests. If you create an awning to one side and even gives you a large work or cooking area. Strongly recommend to anybody looking to get this over any other competitor.

    Very nice tarp ought this for my camping backpack. Wanted to be able to carry everything in bag. Use this as main shelter, configured as A-frame. Just perfect. Lightweight, waterproof, tough material and ties appear well sewn with cross stitching. I added two ties to the center of the10 foot side so I could make A frame work in either direction. So much better than tent. No poles. Not stuffy or claustrophobic. A little airish but thats what I like. Folds down to small size. Fits in my pack perfectly. Could not be happier with this tarp. By the way, the dimensions are a little smaller than advertised. I think the dimensions stated are before hems are sewn in. Tarps can be configure in several styles depending on weather and personal preference. Some really good videos on youtube about setting up tarp for shelter. Have taken up hammock camping and this tarp is exceptional for that. Large enough to cover ends of tarp in either direction with plenty of room to store pack and cook. Have been in some frog stranglers with the tarp and stayed bone dry. You can not go wrong with this tarp. Worth a little extra weight for the usefulness of having the extra room and protection from blowing rain. This is one of the best purchases i have made.

    Solid waterproof tarp with easy to use straps I did some test setups with this in my backyard and living room. I can't wait to actually run into a use for it in the wild. For some reason, now that I'm actually prepared for a rainy camping trip, its been all clear! Maybe I should have bought this a while ago. The straps are useful for attaching guy lines to stakes, and a solid ridgeline makes a nice roof. I got the large green to be able to serve 2 people in hammocks or 4 people at a picnic table.

    This tarp great for 11' and 12' hammocks. All the tie out points give you a great deal of flexibility in how you pitch the tarp. There are lighter options available but I believe that this tarp is the perfect median between light weight and durable. Many of the other popular silpoly or silnylon tarps on the market require that you seal your seams and tieout points prior to using it. This tarp is ready to go when you get it and never leaks. Lastly, I've called AquaQuest three times now and someone always answers the phone and addresses questions and concerns appropriately. Don't hesitate on their products. They are top notch!
