FS Very Good Tarp - Great Deal on 12/28/2011 08:09:37 MST Print View

This tarp is reinforced at its stress points and has grosgrain hanging loops along the ridgeline to help keep the netting of your bivy off of your face at night.

There is one loop directly overhead and one further down towards the footend.

Waterproof zippered entry. No slithering under the tarp beak!

Already seam sealed with shockcorded self tightening lines attached. See details in posts above.

All you need are your stakes. ;-)

FS SUL Silnylon Tarp with reflective guylines on 12/29/2011 07:32:04 MST Print View

Here is a picture of the tarp in a stuff sack next to a gatorade bottle and mesh bag of stakes for a size reference.

Packed tarp

This tarp has a 90" ridgeline inbetween the front and rear beaks. The side panels of the main tarp body are approximately 52" each or 104" total. Coverage is a little less than that due to the beaked configuration.

Tarp beak zipped open

Price for the tarp is $60.00, with the stuff sack in the picture included, shipped CONUS. PayPal preferred.

The included shipping cost at USPS is $4.95 for the flat rate mailer.

Consider that $4.95 of the total cost is shipping and your cost for a seam sealed silnylon tarp for $55.05 which is less than half the cost of similar silnylon tarps.

Happy New Year

Party On,

Newton

Waterproof zippered entry. No slithering under the tarp beak!

With the zippered beak modification the tarp weighs 13.05 ounces including seam sealing. If memory serves me correctly I believe that the lines and shockcord tensioners bring the total up to around 13.8 - 14 ounces.

This tarp has a 90" ridgeline inbetween the front and rear beaks. The side panels of the main tarp body are approximately 52" each or 104" total. Coverage is a little less than that due to the beaked configuration.

Already seam sealed with shockcorded self tightening lines attached. There is one tiny pinhole down close to the right front corner that has been sealed. See details in posts above. All you need are your stakes. ;-)

Thank you for your interest. ;-)
