  • Great product excellent customer service.

    by Jordan – 16th Aug 2018

    I am always looking for ways to cut down my pack weight but was hesisitant to upgrade my tarp to cuben fiber because of the cost of the material. My only regret at this point is not doing it sooner. Hammock Gears craftsmanship is top notch. The cuben fiber hex tarp allowed me to cut my tarp weight more than in half. The durability of the tarp is great and after five days of rain and hail on a recent trip without getting wet I’m really impressed. This is one piece of gear that will never leave my pack. That’s not even the best part, the thing that impressed me the most was the customer service I received. I received several personal emails from a real person to update me on my order and helped me with some custom requests and questions I had, usually the same day I contacted them.

  • pure quality

    by Joe – 24th Jul 2018

    What can I say, this tarp is amazing! It only weighs a little over 5oz. Packs down pretty small. Exceeded expectations. I took this tarp out on a 2night backpacking trip. I expected rain on one of the nights, ended up getting poured on both nights and stayed completely dry the whole time. Can not thank the team at hammock gear enough.

  • favorite tarp

    by Unknown – 29th May 2018

    What can I say, this thing is super lightweight, easy to use ( only 6 main connection points) and 100% waterproof. Currently my go to favorite tarp. If you are cutting weight for an UL hike this deffinitly one way to save a bunch of oz. 12' ridge with zingit crl, ti stakes, zingit tie outs and mesh snake skin and I'm still under 12 oz.

  • Can I give it a sixth star?!

    by lord Hartman – 16th Apr 2018

    As always their products are always Amazing!! This is the second tarp I have bought from them. I would never dream of buying a tarp from anywhere else. The quality and value is out of this world! There customer service is also constantly one of the beat in the business! My only complaint is how addictive ordering from them has been; 5 quilts, two tarps, and a larg assortment of other odds and ends.

  • Quality product

    by Unknown – 26th Feb 2018

    High quality product. Tested during heavy rain and felt extremely comfortable under the 12foot model. Camo print is perfect to allow some star gazing at night but protect from sun during the day.

  • UL hammocker's best friend!!

    by Bob Moulder – 29th Nov 2017

    Coming from a UL background I thought I would have to forget about achieving the very low base weights I was accustomed to with tarp-and-bivy setups, but this tarp combined with other UL hammock choices will allow me to go just as light while hanging. I've used this tarp a couple of times and have been very happy with its coverage —it's so light there's no need to compromise with an asymmetrical tarp.

  • Fantastic Weight Saver

    by Unknown – 26th Oct 2017

    I have a big winter tarp, but wanted something smaller and lighterfor backpacking. I got exactly that, as I went from 22 ounces to 5 ounces. I loved this tarp from the minute I got. It is crazy just how light it is. It fits perfectly inthe snakeskin sleeve as well. With a CRL and tarpworms from Dutch, setup is a breeze. Since Cuben is opaque, I opted for the cammo color. This tarp provided enough coverage during rainstorms. I haven't been able to test it yet in a driving rain. This did exactly what I needed and allowed me to backpack 72 miles in 5 days on the AT.

  • cuben fiber tarp

    by Geoffrey A Brindle – 3rd Oct 2017

    Once again another great product from hammock gear. Super light great coverage with the 11 foot. Took it out last weekend. It was super light and had a lot of wind and rain. Not noisy like I thought.

  • all around awesome

    by Joe [dirtbaghiker] – 16th Sep 2017

    Great lightweight, packable tarp that will definitely give you protection from any rain and snow. I was impressed with how fast i recieved it, then i was blown away when i set it up over my hammock! I only pitch my tarps when the weather calls for it [rain/snow]. I pack my asym smaller tarp on my trips in NY, NJ and PA when the weather predictions are not calling for heavy and/or steady constant rain/snow. I wanted more protection and dry space if the weather will be nasty, and i believe this tarp will be perfect for that. You will NOT be disappointed if you buy this tarp..wheather you carry it on all your trips and use it as your primary tarp, or if you switch tarps depending on the forecast. It will have you covered!!

  • Really light

    by John – 12th Sep 2017

    I have several tarps, many of them silnylon. A few of them mist slightly in heavy rain. All of them weigh significantly more when wet. I thought I would give Cuben a try and ordered one with Linelocs installed instead of 'D' rings. The first time I tried it was on a peak with no rain forecasted but I took it just in case. Well... the forecast was wrong and there was a thunderstorm out of nowhere. I barely got it staked out before the storm hit. Needless to say, there was a lot of wind but the tarp did fine. Once the storm passed, the tarp dried quickly of course there was no misting. This thing is lighter than my smallest silnylon tarp but covers nearly four times the area. Thanks Hammock Gear.

  • no more sagging tarps

    by Lisa Ray – 11th Aug 2017

    After watching youtubers Shug and Syntax 77 I was convinced this was a must have. Glad I pulled the trigger. I am a 55 year old woman that loves to backpack, but I really resent my nylon tarp when it gets wet...feels twice as heavy even after a thorough wipe down. This thing is uber light even when it is slightly damp. Easy to deploy as well. It saved our lunch break in Dolly Sods from being a wet, uncomfortable mess. Three of us comfortably sat out a deluge with no sagging. Wish my skin was dyneema, LOL

  • Perfection

    by Scooter – 5th Jul 2017

    I've used this tarp for about 200 nights on the AT. It is absolutely perfect. I would not change a thing. I think the cat cut and no sewing in the apex is what makes this tarp so special. I ordered without pullouts and cut off the D-rings. It weighed 148 grams - about 30 grams lighter than my other CF tarp and it performs better. I used it one night in a very poor location with high winds. I was absolutely sure it wouldn't survive the night, but when I got up it was undamaged. My only suggestion is to get a double sided stuff sack for easier deployment.

  • Perfect tarp for me!

    by Benjamin Hayes – 31st May 2017

    Used this recently on a 5 day backpacking adventure along the AT. This performed amazingly. It not only covered me well, but all the rain it kept out, and it packed light and small! I couldn't think of a better tarp to use.

  • excellent decision

    by Unknown – 30th Apr 2017

    I did a lot of internet research and finally decided on this and am really happy I did. Lightweight, easy to hang, no sealing needed and great coverage for my eno double nest. I just need to be careful to take it down during the day to avoid prolonged sun exposure for when I do Day hiking from a base camp. It has held up to significant winds so far!

  • Best customer service ever !

    by tracey - maine hiker – 25th Apr 2017

    I'm in new hammocker, when I ordered my tarp it came quickly but when I measured it and it was 2 inches shorter than it should've been , didn't think it would provide enough coverage for a beginner over my Hammock. I spoke to Adam and he offered to send me a new one a foot longer just to make sure. Worth every penny to trust and respect who you're buying your gear from! Awesome tarp and company!

  • crazy light, great coverage

    by Unknown – 24th Apr 2017

    I took my new hex tarp on the Black Forest trail in PA for three nights. Super easy to set up with some Dutch bling and being able to see through the Cuban fiber is pretty cool. Dropped a whole pound of weight with this tarp. A big shout out to Mr Carlson in customer service for being awesome. I couldn't be more pleased, thank you HG!!!

  • Awesome

    by L – 6th Apr 2017

    Awesome way to lighten up pack, so so so light, especially for the size its awesome. Paired with some Lawson cord from Dutch i got a solid, light set-up. the main "Con" review i read spoke of how loud the tarp can be under steady rain. i was pleasantly surprised. didnt bother me at all.

  • Amazing Tarp! Stunning Weight Savings!

    by William Hodge – 8th Mar 2017

    I have been eyeing this tarp for a while now. When I was finally able to get it I was ecstatic! When I received it I was in heaven. Took it out immediately and just wow. Super strong, very very light weight, the color blends in while most environments, setup is a breeze and its overall build quality is amazing. I am 110% happy with my purchase! Highly highly recommend this to anyone wishing to cut their base weight or even for a quality tarp that cant be match!

  • love at first nap.

    by Tony – 2nd Mar 2017

    My tarp came in the mail one day into a local cold weather camping gear check. That night, heavy gusts and wind with rain. Dry and comfortable under my tarp, I enjoyed a great night sleep. It's light weight and simple design are perfect.

  • Fantastic product and company

    by YoRubes – 23rd Jan 2017

    I'm so pleased with my whole experience with Hammock Gear! Ordered a couple of these tarps in standard 11' as Christmas presents and they delivered on time. When I received them I realized that they were a bit too long for my particular hammock setup, and I called to see if I could get the 10' tarps instead. They had me send them back, put together two 10's also got the shorter sleeves and refunded me the difference from the black friday deal I bought the originals under. (Minus the reshipping cost) I decided to just take the price difference and add a couple Dutch Bling hardware pieces I needed. They had the new order out to me within a few workdays. Couldn't be happier with the product or the service! Haven't had a chance to go out on a trip this winter yet, but in the next month or so I will certainly be enjoying this light weight beauty out on the trail.

  • Wow!

    by Sam Cronk – 31st Oct 2016

    I need to admit that my rationale for purchasing this product was based strictly upon its light weight only. However on my first trip we had some simply crazy winds for 4 days and this tarp was like a tank! Definitely my best gear purchase to date. I also want to thank the team, I ordered the tarp at the last minute and they still were able to get it to me before my trip. Thanks for the great product and equally great service!

  • Perfect tarp

    by Daniel Farrell – 2nd Sep 2016

    I'm pretty sure this is the best hammock tarp in the world. Had it custom made with DutchWare Titanium D-Rings, which was an easy/pleasant experience. Dutch now has these tarps + his D-rings for sale on his site, FYI.

  • Replacement HH tarp

    by Dropbear AT – 30th Aug 2016

    Fantastic piece of kit! I have purchased from Hammock Gear before and continue to be impressed by the quality and ingenuity of their products.

    I had a minor problem clipping the tarp on my HH XL Jungle hammock because the HH clips were too large to clip on to the fastening point on the Hammock gear tarp - however I just changed the HH clips for carbiner type clips which should do the job. Thanks again!

  • Best Tarp Ever!

    by Mike – 21st Aug 2016

    Ok, I've been "tarp camping" for 40 years...sometimes because it was all I could afford and others because it's light and simple. I've used cheap blue tarps, ponchos, you name it. Over the last 10 years I've had a good silnylon tarp that I've used exclusively for all my trips. It has had problems; soaks water up, stretches, light but not light enough, etc. I really liked it, but I had a trip last week for 7 days on Isle Royale and they were saying it was going to rain and be stormy. I've been looking at cuben fiber for awhile and decided this was the time. Boy, was I glad I did it. It did rain, and it was windy, and it was hot and I had to sleep on the ground as well as in my hammock. The tarp performed flawlessly. I've heard fears of it being fragile and easy to puncture....well, the same can be said for little thin nylon tarps too. The trick is to pay attention where you hang it. The benefits however out weigh that little bit of attention by a mile. I shaved 12 ounces off my shelter/sleep system, it was huge and the whole party of four could sit under it for lunch during a bad rain spell, and did I mention it was light. Also, the camo cuben tarp was great for off trail because we just disappeared into the background. I've also heard concerns about the noise the tarp makes when moving it around or when raining. Interestingly enough, I never noticed much difference when it was raining from the other sil taps. The sound was different, but they both sounded like a drum. Unfortunately for the sil users, they had to go out and tighten their setups as the sil collected water (sil tends to stretch). Also, when they packed, they packed all that water along with them. Not so the cuben. It was wet, no doubt, but didn't retain water and didn't stretch. I loved this tarp and it was totally worth it. More importantly though, is who you buy it from. I've bought gear from lots of places, but when I decided at last minute to try this, Hammock Gear came through for me. Their customer service is top notch and I got the tarp on time even though it was a late purchase. They did exactly what they said they would do. I already knew they were good, because I've bought a whole range of quilts from them, but this was a special circumstance and they came through brilliantly.

  • Great weight savings!

    by Dadburnet – 5th Aug 2016

    Really nice cuben tarp. I got the 12 foot length. The build quality is very good and the side tie-outs create quite a bit of extra room, something that normally costs more It is the best value out there!

  • so far so good

    by Unknown – 15th Jul 2016

    I have only had it up once it was easy with Dutch gear looks great the camouflage does not stand out so bad in the woods plenty of cover on my 11 foot hammock lightweight that's the best part.
    I am good with it if there's something different I'll let you know.

    I almost forgot the snake skin one covers the whole trap works great !

  • One Light Weight Tarp

    by Chuck – 12th May 2016

    The 11 x1 11 is one compact and light tarp , less then 6 oz according to my scales.
    The Tarp , Stuff sack , repair tape , Snake skins , 40 feet of line and two ( not so light ) carabiners comes to a total weight of 10,3 oz.
    It replaces the tarps for the Warbonnet Black Bird , Clark Tropical , Hennessy and even the ENO Hammocks for a considerable weight savings when backpacking.

  • Easy way to lighten your pack

    by Romer – 4th May 2016

    I had the tarp that came with my Hennessy Hammock and thought that was good enough.

    Throw in a few stormy nights, and realize that those tarps don't dry quickly, and I noticed how much extra weight I was carrying.

    My first trip with the cuben fiber tarp was awesome. Super light, easy to handle, and strong. I added on a few Dutchware Stingerz and was ready to rock. Super easy and still half the weight of my old tarp.

    Plus, having a little moonlight filter through the tarp is a nice feature — unless of course you're a light-sensitive sleeper.

  • So far so good

    by Adam (TheWeekendHiker) – 13th Apr 2016

    Tested out the hex tarp this weekend. I am pleased with the light weight and craftsmanship. Only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars instead of 5 is due to the fact that for the price I paid for the tarp I really wish they included cordage with the tarp. Thanks for a well made product that I feel I will get years of great use from. -ATB Adam (TheWeekendHiker)

  • Worth Every Penny

    by Matjbrown – 7th Mar 2016

    i wanted to lighten my pack, and so glad I pulled the trigger on this tarp. Plenty of coverage, and as usual excellent craftsmanship.

  • worth every penny

    by Blackbeard – 5th Feb 2016

    Excellent product. Very lightweight and durable. Excellent customer service. My tarp was ordered and delivered in two weeks, almost two weeks earlier than expected.
    I'll certainly be a return customer.

  • Top Notch

    by Unknown – 16th Jan 2016

    As with all my previous purchases from Hammock Gear (2 top quilts, 2 bottom quilts and 1 previous Cuban tarp) this is of the utmost top quality. I like the new tie out attachment points. First camo print I own now. Love the pattern! You won't be disappointed!

  • Best tarp I own

    by Unknown – 14th Jan 2016

    This is the lightest and highest quality tarp, period.

  • Cuben Fibre Tarp - Top of the line.

    by sidvicious – 13th Jan 2016

    Great quality in a great product. Very light and strong. Would recommend to anyone. This should be the part of any camping kit.

  • Amazing ultralight hammock tarp

    by Clockw3rk of Portland – 9th Jan 2016

    Thank you HG for making such an outstanding product! The cut is perfect and the quality of the camo print is outstanding. Buy this tarp!
    It should work great for everything but the heaviest weather, so I will just go to my cf tarp with doors! Keep up the good work!

  • lite and strong

    by Binerbabe – 1st Jan 2016

    I cook a pound and a half off my pack weight and it does not absorb water like a conventional nylon part does.

  • freakin awesome!

    by Wildcat – 10th Dec 2015

    One of my favorite things to do with my tarp (besides laying under it) is tossing it to a fellow backpacker in its stuff sack an saying "check this out". The shocked look is priceless :)

    Sets up very easy and I love the tie out points with the D rings. Very easy to move guy lines around. The interior glow on brighter nights is very nice.

    I highly recommend the cuben sleeve (snake skin) I used the tarp twice with great success before coming back and buying the sleeve. I'm glad I did

    Thanks to Harry for his prompt responses to my my emails. Top notch customer service

  • Elements... BRING IT!

    by Eric J Owens – 28th Nov 2015

    What do you get when you combine CF with Hammock Gear quality? An unbeatable tarp, that's what! Incredibly light weight with great coverage means extreme packability, quick setup/tear down, and exceptional protection from the elements. This is my second Hammock Gear tarp (the other is the Standard w/ Doors) and is everything that I have come to expect from their products.

  • Love it

    by Unknown – 28th Nov 2015

    We've used it in high winds and heavy rains so far so good, love it.

  • Best solution yet!

    by Don Nelson – 23rd Jun 2015

    I have had a couple other tarps that were a little heavier....a little bulkier....and not as large a surface area. I have been backpacking for about 50 years and the only way I can still get out there (without hurting myself ;-) ) is by embracing an Ultra Light kit and this tarp was the next 'must have' thing to make my light weight adventures a reality. Love it! Like that it is a little translucent and covers me up so well.. Price is as much as a decent tent, but the weight and how it compresses takes ups so much less room that this and my hammock are the only way to go out in the woods now! I also got the Cuben Sleeve so I can quickly deploy my tarp and get under it when it is raining and then set up out of the weather...a real win-win situation for me....Thanks Hammock Gear!!

  • Alien tissue paper of steel?

    by Stephen Escallier – 9th Apr 2015

    Great tarp! Incredibility light and strong, the tie out points are perfect for trekking pole tips to fit in. I knocked a pound off my pack weight!



    by Clinton – 22nd Jan 2015

    Both the tarp and the customer service level I recieve every time I work with Adam and Jenny are amazing. My wife bought me this tarp for Christmas and they bumped my order up so I could have the tarp in time for a recent trip. This is my second piece of gear I have from them and once again I am nothing but impressed. This is a high quality tarp that is super lightweight! In fact I recommend the cuben sleeve to go with it to make setup and take down a little easier. It is so light it will blow away if you are not careful! On the aforementioned trip the tarp held up in some pretty windy and rainy conditions! It is definitely investment but one you will not regret.

  • Perfect for my Ridgerunner

    by Bionic Man – 7th Oct 2014

    I ordered the12'. Quality is excellent. The sales departments communication was excellent. Shipping was quick with solid packaging. You can't go wrong.

  • Love it!

    by Unknown – 6th Oct 2014

    I love this tarp. I love this company. When I ordered it last minute, not only did they get it to me in time, they offered to send a tarp for me to borrow until the color I ordered came in! Seriously?! Who does that?!! Hammock gear has the best customer service. I actually just choose a different color which I like better and had it right on time for my trip. This tarp isn't noisy (I was slightly worried about that) and with a 10 foot length, it's the perfect size for my warbonnet blackbird. It's incredibly small and light. Worth every penny. Thanks for bother great product, Hammock Gear!

  • Light weight quality

    by Don – 13th Jul 2014

    My first Cuban. The lack of mass is impressive. Hammock Gear's quality is top notch, I will invest again.

  • Outstanding Tarp

    by Unknown – 16th May 2014

    I wanted a cuben tarp that would blend into the trees and other plants in my back yard. I have two other cuben tarps but the standard color is bright and sticks out. I saw a picture of the Hammock Gear camo tarp and immediately ordered the hex camo. It is perfect. I really like the pattern. This is by far my favorite tarp. Excellent quality, excellent service. Excellent company.

  • BAT (bad ass tarp)

    by Arkansas Pitbull – 29th Apr 2014

    This is an incredibly light weight yet strong tarp. It is very easy to hang. I rode out 30-40 mph sustained winds with 50-60 mph gusts in this last night on the Buffalo River Trail in Arkansas. Props to Adam at Hammock Gear for a very well made CF tarp. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quality, durability, and lightweight.

  • Like a feather

    by Jackpine German – 19th Apr 2014

    Very light, very strong and good coverage on my traveler using the standard size tarp. Can't ask for any thing more.
    I'm really going to enjoy this during my summertime treks.
    Its very translucent, last night I could see the moon and stars thru it, as there are no leaves on the trees yet.
