  • Love this tarp

    by Collin H. – 16th Jan 2018

    Finally tested this tarp last weekend for a night out that got down to 0F. It stores great in the mesh sleeve, which is a separate purchase, and worth it, deploys easily from the sleeve and is easy to set up in several configurations. Crazy light, compact enough, it’s not cheap, but I feel you get what you are paying for. An added plus for me is the translucence, it’s not clearly see through, but I like the ambiance when nestled underneath.

  • lightweight and durable

    by Ed – 15th Dec 2017

    This is my first cuben tarp and I'm glad I spoiled myself with this one. The lightweight and durability was significantly more convenience for me than the one I got from Warbonnet (although that was great quality as well). I was able to modify the tarp with different add-ons and the doors work exactly the way I need them to now. I think the total height of this tarp is 8ft.. I think 10ft would've been absolutely perfect and would've been 5-stars for me.

  • UL Tarp Perfect For Long Distance Hikers

    by SlowBro – 28th Nov 2017

    Purchased the HG Dyneema Fiber Standard Tarp with Doors for my upcoming hike of the CDT. It replaces an old Cuben fiber tarp that finally wore out after PCT, CT, and AZT thru-hikes. So I know the dyneema fabric holds up well. I had them make it with Llineloc 3's instead of the D Rings at the pullouts. That change was no problem and no extra cost. Fabrication and delivery took exactly the time they said. And the final weight was in spec at 7.55 oz. the workmanship is first rate as you would expect. This tarp recently spent 14 hours keeping me and all my gear dry on a backpacking trip here in Oregon. HG has one of the best prices for one of the best tarps available. Buy it!

  • Dream Tarp

    by Unknown – 24th Oct 2017

    The Cuban fiber tart to me is the best all around tarp it's lightweight strong and dependable. For all four seasons I would recommend the twelve foot it's worth the few extra bucks. I've been backpacking for over fifty years finally a descent lightweight enjoyment of a tarp.

  • Unbelievably Light

    by Greg Eidam – 17th Oct 2017

    I got to try it out on a four-night trip and I love the tarp. The weather was perfect so I didn't get to push it at all, but I see no reason it won't get the job done in just about any condition. And, I can't believe how light it is. I really enjoy being able to see through it as well. Also, thanks to HG for expediting my order so I had it in time for my trip.

  • Great product

    by Unknown – 9th Oct 2017

    This tarp is great and well made

  • Great product, greater customer service

    by #2 – 25th Sep 2017

    I messed up and gave Harry Carlson an impossible delivery date. He did it. I don't recommend doing what I did.
    All my insulation and rain coverage is from this great company.

  • great tarp

    by Unknown – 8th Aug 2017

    great quality and craftsmanship. very light and tough. first night out with it and had some heavy thundetstorms and the tarp proformed great

  • Fantastic craftsmanship-Fast delivery

    by Unknown – 7th Jul 2017

    I can't believe I waited this long to upgrade to a Dyneema tarp. A foot longer than my silnylon (with doors) this tarp weighs-in at ~11 oz. after guylines, hardware, stakes, mesh gear sleeve, and stuff sack; more than a pound lighter than my silnylon.
    All the stitching is perfectly straight, and it was delivered well before the estimate.

    My only complaint is that HG didn't send me a free sticker so I can brag to the world. ;)

  • Happy Camper!!

    by Short Hang – 5th Jul 2017

    Outstanding workmanship, light as a feather, tough as nails. Just got back from a backcountry trip on the Cumberland trail where it got hammered by thunderstorms. Kept me and my gear perfectly dry and sheltered Packed it out still wet and couldn't feel any signicant weight change. Thanks HG!!! You guyz rawk!!

  • Saved a trip!

    by Jim – 1st Jul 2017

    Purchased this tarp before our camp in the Adirondaks of New York. It rained all week we were there .

    This tarp saved the day. We were able to cook eat and get dressed under the tarp while it was in the porch mode.

    Uber light and thought I was not going to like the somewhat opaque color but it was dynomite!

    Totally waterproof and was able to use some guy lines to pull it down tight at night.

    tie downs for doors not needed but some thin shock cord with mitten hooks on the ends will seal the doors up at night or during a storm.

    Not sure about durability but thats another review. Thanks for a great product!

  • Excellent service, fantastic product!

    by Susan – 1st Jul 2017

    I ordered this tarp thinking the lead time was still 1-2 weeks, but unfortunately it had changed to 2-3 weeks while I was saving my money to purchase. I contacted Hammock Gear explaining my dilemma and Harry Carlson responded quickly and took care of my order. I received my tarp in less than 2 weeks in time for my 2 week backpacking trip. On the trip it rained almost every night but I stayed dry, as well as my gear. I'm so glad I ordered the standard version with doors because when the wind was blowing they protected everything inside. The tarp was easy to shake off, absorbed no water and went right back into the stuff sack. I love it!

  • 2nd Review

    by Bob V – 16th Jun 2017

    Just wanted to do a quick update to my previous review titled
    I have a lot more trips on this tarp now and there isnt any sign of wear or damage and I have been through one very windy snow storm that lasted all night on top of a mountain winds between 35mph and 50mph
    I really expected to pack up a shredded rag after that night, I was completely shocked that it survived. I also had a pretty bad thunderstorm with blowing rain managed to stay dry including my under-quilt.
    I did make one modification to the doors, I purchased a set of loops and toggles from Z-Packs to help keep the middle of the doors closed in strong winds, they are self adhesive and seem to be holing up just fine.

    so in short this tarp has exceeded my expectations in some very brutal environments.

    Again I would like to thank Hammock Gear for an awesome product!!!!

  • great tarp

    by Jason – 8th Jun 2017

    Used the tarp a few times so far and it has plenty of coverage. The tarp kept me dry in a heavy thunderstorm with high winds, nice and light too.

  • Top notch quality

    by Dave – 9th May 2017

    After selling off a ton of gear I don't use anymore, I done broke down and got myself a Dyneema tarp. I won't talk to much on the quality because if you are ordering from Hammock Gear, you probably know what to except from them.

    The tarp is barely weighable, I really enjoy being able to look see through it on moon lit nights and the taught pitch is great in windy conditions. If you are looking for something really light with a lot of coverage, this is the tarp. No doubt it will last for many years with some care.

  • it works on the AT

    by Unknown – 3rd May 2017

    Three weeks on the AT it has kept me dry. One of the best features that no one talks about is that the tarp holds almost no water even when it is put away in the rain.

  • Best Tarp Ever!!!

    by Your Name – 12th Apr 2017

    Great service and top quality by HammockGear.com . This tarp is amazingly light and offers so much protection. Check out their underquilts and overquilts also!!!!

  • Take the Plunge!

    by TonyL – 28th Mar 2017

    You may be having some sticker shock, I know I did, but you will not regret taking the plunge if you have a passion for hammock backpacking. HG managed to make this incredibly light without sacrificing durability. I haven't had the chance to test it in a true storm yet, but it has withstood 30+ mph gusts without issue so I'm confident it'll keep me dry when the time comes. Setup is extremely quick once you figure out how you want to do it. After some testing and many, many knots, I now use a continuous Ridgeline with the DW dutch hook on one end and a DW stinger oppositley attached to the tarp itself, all wrapped up with the HG Cuben Sleeve.

  • tarp awesomeness

    by Travis Lane – 27th Mar 2017

    This is by far and away the best piece of kit one could ask for next to their hammock.Ultralight and tough,it has no weight but is tough as nails and zero stretch that I could notice.
    Extremely easy to pack in the snakeskins and simple to deploy once your guyouts are set up.

  • poor craftsmanship

    by Unknown – 23rd Mar 2017

    I bought my tarp with door ties, the door ties were booth on one side (insted of one on each side) making them worthless, cant use them to tie door back. And one of the d rings was melted. This damaged d ring was a manufacturer defect and hammock gear failed to inspect before instalation, and didnt catch it on final inspection. Im disapointed, 300$ and it has 2 major flaws. I will not be buying from this company again

  • Another Quality Product

    by Ed – 20th Mar 2017

    This tarp is our third product from Hammock Gear including top quilt and bottom quilt so I expected a quality item - and it delivers!! Only an initial setup so far to add hardware including the bungy and clip system for door control (great idea) and we are so impressed with this product. Materials and workmanship are outstanding. Can't wait to give it a try on our next camp. Customer service and responsiveness has always also been outstanding from new orders to questions and alterations of previous purchases.

  • Light and easy!

    by Big Al – 10th Feb 2017

    This tarp is crazy light, with no stretch like silnylon. I got the cuben snakeskin to go with it, and with all the suspension, lines, Dutchware flies, wasps, 4 stakes, etc, it weights about 10oz. I would highly recommend getting the snakeskin, as it makes storing and setting up easy. I set up the doors with side-release clips and shock cord so that I can either clip the doors closed, attached to each opposite tarp corner, or clip them on the inside walls to each other. Quick opening for more air or setting the doors in storm-mode, and I only need 4 stakes. In stormy, rainy weather I can get the tarp set up quick without even taking off my pack, as it lives in an outside mesh pocket, then I have a nice dry place to get my gear in order. I use down quilts, and this is an important thing. Great construction, nice the way the light filters through. I have set it up as a ground tarp, too, with my trekking poles. Expensive piece of gear, but well worth it. Good down quilts and good shelter are essential safety gear throughout most of the year at higher elevations, don't skimp on these items! And if you're trying to really lighten up your pack weight, this tarp will go a long way to helping achieve that. The Hammock Gear guys are great, and we really need to support smaller companies like this! They push the envelope on gear, and give us an alternative to the outdoor industry giants.

  • Winner Winner!

    by Zak – 3rd Feb 2017

    Hello Hammock Gear my name is Zak. I attended Hang Con 2017 at Doe Lake in Ocala Florida. Well I won this tarp in their raffle and would like to thank you very much for donating it. I'm kind kind of a beginner in the hammock game, this is my first piece of super lightweight gear and cant wait to use it on the trail. Again thank you very much for the donation!

  • Nothing comes close.

    by Unknown – 30th Jan 2017

    So light and efficient. Goodbye silnylon.

  • Like carrying air

    by Chuck – 23rd Jan 2017

    This tarp is well worth the money. At 6.5 oz without the suspension it is like carrying air. It is amazing that this tarp is so light even though it has doors. The tie outs are well made and it definitely is rain tight.

  • one word

    by Unknown – 12th Jan 2017


    As long as you understand Cuben Fiber then you will be satisfied with this product. If I had to complain about anything it would be price, but I fully expect Cuben Fiber to be in higher supply in the future which will drive down costs. May have to wait a bit or pay the price of having the latest and greatest.

  • WOW

    by Bob V – 28th Dec 2016

    What can I say except WOW!!!
    I can't get over how light this tarp is. I ordered mine in Camo didn't want it to bright inside but it still allows plenty of light in. The quality is spot on I've only used it a few times but so far its pretty awesome. If the cuben fiber material holds up I will be happy for many years to come. I ordered a 12' to cover my Warbonnet XLC and I have plenty of room the 11' would have fit as well. I also purchased my underquilt incubator 20* from HG also another great product.

    A BIG thanks to HG for their fast turnaround and Awesome products!!
    I look forward to ordering my Top quilt soon.

  • Luxury Item

    by David R – 14th Dec 2016

    It is clear with looking at the price that Cuben Fiber anything is expensive. I got this tarp for the weight and the strength of cuben fiber. However it was when I took it out in high winds I was able to accept the high price point. The tarp is a little more noisy than nylon and when the wind was blowing I was worried that the tarp would rip like wet tissue paper. The construction is well make, the tie outs are reinforced and withstood some pretty tough winds. This is currently my main tarp. I also run dutchgear(wasps-ridgeline, flyz-tie outs, and worms - doors) on my tarp and have not seen any degradation or wear. The cuben fiber holds up well. Once again, it is a well made luxury item if you can swallow the price.

  • Really Great Product!

    by Tim Czapranski – 21st Nov 2016

    Purchased this tarp hoping that it is everything I read about would come true.
    Did a solo through hike of the NPT (Northville Placid Trail) and ran into two really nasty storms. I could not believe how well this tarp worked, So quick and easy to set up and take down makes this a state of the art product. I like the single tapered snakeskin,
    Tough to figure out which is it's best feature - great protection, will not absorb ANY water or super light weight,,,,Thank you for a great product!

  • Amazing!

    by Brett – 5th Nov 2016

    So happy I bit the bullet on this thing. As others have said, if you're worried about price you're looking at the wrong thing. Until cuben fiber comes down in price, the price for this tarp is fair.

    I got the door tie backs, but if I could do it again I wouldn't. I wound up doing a door tie back mod with some shock cord, Google "adventure alan tarp doors" to find it.

    It adds some weight, but it saves weight on 4 extra stakes and guy lines to tie off the doors when in use, so probably a net negative.

    With my ridgeline, door tiebacks, the snake skin (which you really should order too - you're spending $300 on a tarp so just go the extra few bucks for easier setup and takedown), and dutch bling, the whole setup weighs just 11.3oz.

    Also, Hammock Gear got all of my stuff including two quilts to me extremely fast considering it's all custom made. Awesome!

  • exactly as promised

    by dweckster (Dan) – 5th Nov 2016

    Couldn't wait to try it, and it met and exceeded expectations. I purchased the 12 ft. camo version, I wanted the peaceful colors. I'm glad I went with 12 ft, as of course on my first trip with this tarp it rained. I went porch mode on one end (instead of a side) and have plenty of room so sit under the tarp and cook. What a great product. Thank you, Hammock Gear. I'll be back for other needs!

  • Quality and Craftsmanship Superb

    by Greg (Bushrod) – 31st Oct 2016

    I gave this a 5 star based solely on quality, craftsmanship and customer service as I have yet to use it. Upon receipt, I carefully examined the entire tarp for seam sealing, rips, attachments, etc. It was flawless. I set it up with a continuous ridge line and there were no problems noticed. I ordered the cuban fiber tarp with doors to help block the wind and it did a great job at that as it was a windy day. The tarp is also extremely light and compatible which is one of the primary reasons I ordered it. In my dealings with hammock gear they were always courteous and surpassed my expectations. Great product - Great company.

  • Excellent Quality and Super Light Weight

    by Gottabyke – 10th Oct 2016

    If you're worried about the price then you shouldn't be looking at Cuben Fiber. I thought about making my own tarp and discovered that, after purchasing my own Cuben Fiber, it would be almost a wash to just order one. Glad I did too. The quality is second to none. The price is very fair and turnaround was about 2 weeks. I ordered mine with door tiebacks but would probably forgo this option if I could do it over again. They just aren't as convenient as I thought they would be. Otherwise, this is an awesome tarp. Did I mention that it is SUPER light weight?

  • awesome

    by Zach – 26th Sep 2016

    I had a chance to try out the standard tarp the other week and its performance was awesome. We got heavy heavy rain on the last night of the trip but the tarp kept me nice and dry inside.

  • Excellent Craftsmanship

    by Your Name – 21st Sep 2016

    This thing is seriously well made. Ad expected is also very, very light. What wasn't expected, and this is no fault of the manufacturer, was that it sounds like you're sleeping in a snare drum when the rain is really coming down. Guess it's a small price to pay for such a huge weight savings. Took me back to rainy nights at our old tin roof camp. Extra cash for the camouflage print seems worth it to me.

  • Excellent tarp.

    by WrongWay – 30th Aug 2016

    Used it with my hammock as soon as I received it. Works great. I plan to carry it on my 2017 AT tru hike. Excellent tarp. Thanks

  • Excellent tarp.

  • Works with hiking poles in a ground set up!

    by Bobby D – 18th Jul 2016

    Despite spending several hundred dollars on "hammock gear" in the last few months, I still haven't made the transition to hammocking. Being a ground sleeper, I was a little worried that this tarp wouldn't completely meet my needs. No need to worry. I was able to get this tarp set up as tight as a drum using my hiking poles. One added benefit was that I was able to stake my ground sheet and tarp with the same stakes...as in, the grommets for my HG tarp lined up perfectly with my ground sheet.

  • Very light tarp

    by Leonard Mills Jr. – 13th Jul 2016

    This tarp is my first piece of cuben fiber gear and it is amazingly light. Hammock Gear did a great job getting the tarp to me by my deadline on my trip. I didn't get any rain on this trip but it was amazing to hang in my hammock and be able to watch fireworks bursting in the sky through the tarp. They are pricey but I think you get what you pay for. Will see how it holds up after several trips and follow up with another review. I did add some mods to the doors for clipping them out of the way with shock cord and side release buckles. This was posted on Hammock Forums. Looking forward to using the doors in the fall when temps start to plunge.

  • You get what you pay for!

    by Frodo Adventure – 7th Jul 2016

    This tarp, and this material is strong, lightweight and well made. A prime example of how you get what you pay for. My only critique is the cost; and much of that is due to material costs.

  • Really nice tarp

    by MarkB – 23rd May 2016

    Great design and workmanship - HG makes a fantastic tarp!

  • Hangout Palace

    by Greenlight – 20th May 2016

    This tarp is unreal, I've had it for the 10 days on the AT so far and have tested it in wind, rain, and even a bit of snow already. The doors are a total game changer (and I highly recommend the door ties), and even fully pinned down make for a spacious enclosure. Packs nicely, doors stash easily with the ties, I just can't say enough about this tarp.

  • lots of nothing!

    by Mr Smokey – 9th May 2016

    I absolutely love this rain tarp. i have the tarp with the doors and love it.

    i have set this up more then a few times and it is a breeze with the sleeve that you can get as well.

    it all packs up in the stuff sack that it comes with and weighs next to nothing and is easy to stuff in your pack anywhere.

    pair this with some Dutchware gear Stingerz with the line and some bungee cord and it works flawlessly.

    i got the soft shackles and love it's easy setup but very strong.

    very durable and strong material even when it's flapping around in the wind.

    thank you all for your great work!!!

  • Awesome tarp, Awesome Service

    by Matt – 11th Apr 2016

    I purchased this tarp for an upcoming trip in Red River Gorge, I put in a special request and received the tarp in very little time and they exceeded my expectations. I was a little nervous the first night out, we had sustained winds in the 20 mph and gusts in the 30-40 range, no issues with the tarp, held up great, excellent craftsmanship. We didn't get any rain during the trip so I can't comment on that, but nothing would lead me to believe that this wouldn't perform extremely well in a rainstorm. The tarp is extremely light and provides excellent coverage. Very happy with the purchase!

  • So light!

    by David – 17th Mar 2016

    When the package came I thought they must have accidentally shipped me an empty box. But the big tarp was in there, it just barely weighs anything! I wish I could get the rest of my gear made of this material.

  • exactly what I was hoping for

    by Unknown – 5th Mar 2016

    I read all the reviews, scoured youtube, and debated over purchasing this tarp. It arrived with a minor delay due to a cuben fiber wholesaler delay. But the quality of the product made the delay seem meaningless. A few minutes after recieving the tarp, I had it rigged with a continuous ridge line made out of zing it, and had it raised between two trees. One would expect it to be fragile after handling it as it seems weightless. But that s not the case. Initial findings seem to show great strength. I was planning n only setting up the tarp, but The urge to sit in my hammck took over, and before long, the hammock was up and i was guazing through the semi transparent tarp at the blue sky above. Cant wait to hit the trails.

  • Tarp Rocks

    by Bike-N-Hike – 4th Mar 2016

    I've had the chance to use this tarp a half a dozen times from summer to winter. Love It. The camo look is great in the woods, very natural and the light coming through is muted and pleasant. The door tie outs are worth it. I rolled the doors up until they reach the tie outs and the doors disappear into the tarp and stay there. Looks like a hex tarp until you need the doors. I bought the CF sleeve and although the sleeve was slightly shorter than then the tarp works great. The sleeve became more supple after multiple uses. If you can afford the price it would make a real nice addition to your gear.

  • Very Pleased

    by Frank – 15th Feb 2016

    I purchased the CF with doors. After receiving it timely, I headed to the hills. The tarp ran the gauntlet the first night. I had a squall come through with 50 mile per hour gusts. Rain was coming sideways. All the tie outs held. I loved the sound of the rain hitting the CF.
    All the sewing looked great and it came on on the specified weight.
    I am so happy with Hammock Gear that I just ordered a Phoenix 20 and CF Tarp Sleeves. I should have just order the sleeves with the tarp.
    Thanks HG!

  • Great Tarp

    by Unknown – 12th Feb 2016

    By far the best tarp money can buy. Worth every cent of the purchase price. Great service from Hammock Gear as well.

  • cuben tarp

    by David Baird (pumkinpete) – 14th Jan 2016

    Received this tarp and I very much please with may choose ,service is the best you could ever want. If you have a question they are fast in any responses, shipping very fast. If you are looking for top of the line cuben fiber tarp look no further the Hammock gear! THANK YOU GUYS ☺

  • Beautiful, Light Small

    by Marshall Righter – 21st Nov 2015

    This is the first piece of gear that I have not made myself, It is a thing of beauty. I ordered mine without bottom cat cuts to max out coverage on my underside. I have not used it yet in blowing rain but I fear I will need some sort of under quilt protection. My wheels are spinning on a Cuban fiber under quilt protector/pack cover.

  • Top notch quality. A bit undersized?

    by Marshal Kline – 13th Nov 2015

    First, I am very experienced with CF products, but new to hammock camping. Secondly, my rating is really something more like 4.8 stars.

    The day after receiving my tarp I began a four day "inaugural hammock camping" trip in what turned out to be nearly constant rain. For this trip I was using an 11' gathered end hammock made by Dutchware. The only reason for 4 stars (instead of 5) is that on the last night I apparently did not have the hammock perfectly centered under the tarp and ended up with dampness extending about 10" down the foot-end of the hammock. While I recognize this was primarily my fault, my "complaint" is that (with my set-up, at least) there is barely an inch of tolerance to get both the head and foot end connection points covered. For what it is worth, I've since replaced my 8" continuous loops wth 6.5" loops hoping this will give me a bit more wiggle room for the next trip.

    Otherwise, the design and build quality of this tarp is absolutely top-notch.

  • Worth the expense

    by Chad Von Dette – 27th Oct 2015

    I am very pleased with the quality of the tarp. I bought mine in camo and love the print. I also bought the sleeve to go with the tarp. I'm happy that I bought both. It is super easy to set up and take down once you have all of your lines pre-tied to the tie outs.

  • Dope!

    by Faison (Learning Curve) – 17th Oct 2015

    First time ever touching CF, i was shocked at how fragile it felt. After setting it up and breaking it down a few nights, i began to realize how strong it actually was. I love this tarp! But it will prob only be for longer distance trips when weight matters... about 2 weeks from order to delivered. great work HG!

  • Sheds Rain and Wind like a boss!

    by Kat – 12th Oct 2015

    Used this is a downpour with sideways rain and not a drop hit my hammock! it's awesome. The manufacturing is superb and I was impressed with the attention to detail. All around a great investment.

  • Greatest tarp ever

    by Mike in MI – 8th Oct 2015

    This is the greatest tarp ever, well constructed and just what I need for full coverage in any elements. Its Cuben and made by Hammock Gear, whats not to love?!

  • Awsome!!!

    by duane – 1st Oct 2015

    Can't say enough good things about this tarp. All pros, no cons, great tarp and worth the cost.

  • Great Tarp

    by John – 25th Sep 2015

    Standard tarp size is perfect for backpacking . Lite, water proof and wind proof. Love it on all my hiking trips.

  • Great product, incredible service

    by Mark A – 11th Sep 2015

    I bought this tarp when the lead time was projected to be 8-10 weeks. I sent an email before placing the order to see if there was any chance that I could get the tarp within 5 weeks for a trip I had coming up. I was told that that shouldn't be a problem. Then about a week after ordering it I had another trip opportunity come up so I emailed again to see if there was any chance I could get it about 10 days earlier than the 5 weeks I had asked for. The tarp shipped out that day and I was able to use it for a trip that happened only 3 weeks after I ordered it. Outstanding customer service- can't recommend the company highly enough.

    The tarp is great as well. Super light, great coverage and the attention to detail is amazing. I bought the tarp with the doors and I love the tie backs for when they aren't needed. I bought this for my own hammocking but also to act as a group tarp on trips when we have more people than can fit in a tent to play cards and hang out at the end of the day. This is light enough that it can be added to someone's pack without having a big impact on the total weight. My old ENO tarp weighs almost two pounds, and this one is a quarter of that. Very impressed

  • Top Notch Customer Service & Material Quality

    by Truong Nguyen – 11th Aug 2015

    I ordered a Phoenix 20°F under quilt and standard CF3 tarp with snake skin from HG knowing that I might have to wait for a long time to receive the tarp and the snake skin due to shortage of CF material. HG gear sent me the under quilt within a few days with a note indicating that the tarp will not arrive for a while. I had trip coming up soon and emailed Harry a few times asking for the status of the tarp. Within a week and a half, realizing that the stand CF material will not be in for a while, Harry did not hesitate to step up and offered me a free upgrade to the Camo CF. I got both the tarp and the snake skin in Camo, $50 or more free upgrade...I brought them out on a backpacking trip and everyone admired the quality of the under quilt as well as the tarp......top notch customer service and material quality....not disappointed to go with HG......thank you, Harry.....

  • So good

    Went from my Warbonnet Mambajamba to this - the drop is weight is amazing.

  • 4 Season CF Camo Tarp

    by Bike-N-Hike – 21st May 2015

    Finally tested the Tarp out in Kentucky's Red River Gorge. No complaints, Tarp looks great in Camo, I think the site needs a better picture for the 4 season camouflage tarp. Love the look, sort of like having a stain glass Tarp the way the light filtered through it. Sets up nice in porch mode with my hiking sticks. Job well done Hammock Gear. Would like to see the Assym camo tarp picture. Thinking of going with summer weight TQ/UG and assym camo tarp next summer.

  • The Best Damn Tarp Ever

    by TAGwinn – 30th Apr 2015

    I received my new tarp on Monday and by Thursday had two nights in the Cuben awesomeness.

    This tarp is everything that I hoped it would be. It has lived up to all of the great reviews and You Tube videos that I so diligently studied before making my purchase. I am looking forward to many good nights sleep under this tarp.

  • Disappointed in service

    by Ann – 26th Apr 2015

    I feel like I've been robbed. I ordered the tarp on Feb. 15, 2015. I had to call and email several times urging them to please send my tarp by a trip on April 7th. The tarp never came. I sent an email again when I returned home to find it still hadn't arrived. It finally arrived on April 19th. It came with no note, no apologies for it taking more than 2 months and then I found that it came with no straps and no tie out lines. I can make these myself, but for $300 for the tarp plus the $250 I spent on an incubator 20 underquilt in the same month, I was expecting more from a small company. Now, I read on here that other's were able to get their tarp in less than 2 weeks, during the same time frame. What's up with that?! Disappointed.

  • great product/great customer care

    by Paul Schonbrun – 17th Apr 2015

    Awesome tarp/well done tie backs

  • Great tarp in the rain

    by Greasedoc – 12th Apr 2015

    I recently spent a night under this tarp during a 5 hour steady rain. I bought it to take weight off my pack.I got more than that. There was no misting like sil. And it dries faster and easier than any piece of gear I own.

  • Perect tarp, amazing customer service

    by Linck – 23rd Mar 2015

    First, I had a few questions about the tarp. I got timely, and thorough replies (including pictures!). I also had a trip coming up and asked if it would be possible to have the tarp by a particular day. They beat my best expectations, and I got the tarp a week before my trip.

    As far as the tarp goes... it is simply the standard by which others should be measured. Wonderful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

  • Lighten your load.

    by Hiker63@facebook – 23rd Mar 2015

    I wanted to switch to a lighter Tarp and decided to go with the Standard in Camo. Cuben Fiber is a big investment. Other companies sell Cuben Fiber Tarps but my decision to purchase from Hammock Gear was based on prior products purchased, the quality, craftsmanship and their service. If you want to drop your base weight without sacrificing quality, then go for it. You're back, legs and feet will thank you.

  • Best tarp and service

    by Glenn – 16th Mar 2015

    I ordered this hammock tarp at the last minute. I talked to Adam. Adam was a big help. I went with the 11 foot tarp with doors. They were out of of the listed color of cuben fiber. Adam said they had gray, which was good. From the time of our phone call to receiving the tarp was about a week. They jumped through hoops for me. I was leaving for the mountains in two weeks. I got the tarp in plenty of time for me to set it up a few times prior to departure. This is a great company to do business with. Can't beat the service. Thanks .

  • Awesome tarp, awesome service!!!

    by Matthew Stenger – 10th Mar 2015

    I bought this tarp for my hammock on my AT thru hike. After finishing, it still looks brand new.

    I am now planning on the CDT next year, and I plan to use it as a ground tarp for that as well.

    I've also had the pleasure on interacting with Adam a couple times and he has always given great customer service, above and beyond my expectations.

    Hammock Gear is a great company and this is a great product!

  • WOW. A Great tarp

    by Roger (NC Patches) – 28th Feb 2015

    Was waiting to get my new hammock to try all out together.
    Last night in NC, got down to 30 degrees, and the tarp was Great. I looked up and was able to see the moon as it went across the sky. That was wonderful.
    Good costruction, tie outs where you need them. Blocked the wind. I had a good night. Thank you for, in my opinion, for a Great product.

  • I wish I had it the entire trail [Appalachian]

    by Train – 8th Jan 2015

    When I set out on the AT I started as a ground dweller and switched to my hammock in Damacus VA. I brought along a hex tarp from another company until MA. In MA I had my 10 point waiting for me. I wish I had it all along. This tarp can go to the ground when needed for complete protection and with the wrap around doors I never worried about wet gear as I had to with the hex. The delicacy of the material is what prevented me from carrying before. Now I am planning to use it for other long distance trails and with out worry.

  • low weight and great coverage

    by coley epperson ( hombre) – 1st Dec 2014

    I have stayed under this tarp 4 nites . I like the space and options on setup. It snowed on me 2nites which has a cool sound. But the coolest thing is being able to see thru it

  • best tarp

    by Whistler – 2nd Nov 2014

    Had to try it , standard tarp did great in 40 mile an hour wind and 35 degree temps. It is my first cuben fiber , looking forward to a lot of use. Covers my Hennesy hammock with room to spare,used six stakes and lite duty twine to hang it .
    Make sure you secure all the tie-outs ,it is loud flapping.

  • Excellent tarp

    by Jeff (Bobwhite) – 28th Oct 2014

    I ordered this tarp with doors and tiebacks. I am amazed at how light it is. It offers great coverage, is versatile, and back down nicely. At this time I am still using my Hennessy snake skins on it, Once rolled up the tarp can me squeezed to a very compact shape. This tarp fits in these skins far easier than the sil-nylon tarp did. Customer service was great. Jenny put forth an extra effort to ensure I had this in time for an upcoming backpacking trip, even though they were short handed. This was a big investment, but you get what you pay for,

  • best tarp i have bought

    by JP – 8th Sep 2014

    Used this tarp for a week in the Smokies. It rained on us every other night, and not once did it let me down. Everything stayed dry and the tarp itself dried quickly. I'll be buying more cuben fiber in the future.

  • AAA+++

  • The best, hands down

    by CTinAZ – 27th Aug 2014

    I'll start off by saying I'm a first time Cuben user.
    I did two weeks on the VT Long Trail this past July with this tarp. (And a custom made HG quilt)
    At first I battled with the idea of Cuben over silnylon, but I'm now a believer. This tarp kicked butt!!
    It stood up to torrential rains and storms, it pitched tight, and the camo worked great for those nights in between shelters where I wanted to be discreet.
    The extra coverage from the doors allowed me to hang things at either end and not get soaked.
    The weight advantage speaks for itself.
    The Cuben sleeves worked great as well, I could have my tarp deployed in 2-3 minutes and be dry underneath when the weather closed in quickly.
    So if you're torn between Cuben and silnylon and you can make the stretch, go for it, you won't look back.
    One last thing, Adam was always a pleasure to deal with,
    I'll be acquiring many more products from HG

    by Mark – 16th Jul 2014

    Awesome tarp, so light but yet so durable. I know I will get plenty of use out of it WOOHOOO!!!. And the Hammock Gear folks really went out of thier way to deliver an awesome product.

  • Best Tarp Ive Ever Owned

    by Squawk – 12th Jul 2014

    Best tarp ive ever owned. took it up to the green mountain state for a week backpacking trip and was hit with the aftermath of hurricane alberts fury while on top of bald mountain. needless to saw i was extremely grateful to have this tarp with me. it withstood heavy rains and very high winds all through the night. easily my favorite piece of gear!

  • Just buy one!

    by idc1970 - Australia – 27th Jun 2014

    I hesitated due to the cost of cuben fibre tarps, in the end I decided I'd rather save on weight in the pack, bought one (along with a few other goodies from HG) and man, am I impressed. I got the standard with doors, CF snake skins, set it up with Kelty Striptease and Dutch's Stingerz and it's a breeze to set up. Love this tarp.

  • for starters...

    by MyD0j0 – 15th Jun 2014

    This Hammock Gear tarp is so light and packs so small it made the stock tarp that came with my Hennessey Expedition hammock a joke. Coverage and protection is excellent--on my second use of the tarp, I was hit with an inch of rain in one day and all my gear was rain and mud free while still allowing porch mode to enjoy the storm and movement underneath... I like it so much I've begun to use this as my all around go to tarp for things like my minimalist bivy as well (for those trips with my girlfriend).

  • Superlative. No better tarp around.

    by River (Loki) – 13th Jun 2014

    This tarp packs down to the size of a paperback book, and is astonishingly light. 6.5 ounces is one thing when you're reading it, and entirely another when you're holding it in your hand. Unfolding this thing is like reaching into Mary Poppins bag – it just keeps getting bigger. The 11' ridgeline alone makes this a bomber shelter. To be honest, even if I wasn't using a hammock, I would bring this as my tarp shelter for ground camping. It's amazing.

  • Very nice tarp!

    by Unknown – 14th May 2014

    I had heard good things about the quality of the HG tarps, and I have to say I wholeheartedly agree! I received my camo version tarp with doors, and a 12' ridgeline, and immediately set it up. I am very pleased with the quality of the material, and the workmanship that went into designing and building this tarp. I am very pleased with my purchase. I wanted a versatile tarp that had the option to close up the ends for inclement weather and privacy (should it be needed), but I didn't want to carry around a really heavy tarp. This fit the bill perfectly.

  • Fantastic Cuban Fiber Tarp

    by Robin in Charlotte – 14th May 2014

    When I first discovered this tarp, I thought there was no way I could justify paying so much for a tarp. I was in the process of converting from an ultra light tent to a hammock setup and was trying to make the conversion as inexpensive as possible. I debated for days between this tarp and other alternatives and eventually decided to make the investment solely based on the weight savings. I have now used the tarp on several backpacking trips and I have to say that I love the tarp and am so glad that I made the investment. Setup is so simple and there is just enough transparency to lay in the hammock and enjoy the moon and stars. Please don't let the light weight fool you. The tarp is very sturdy. On my last backpacking trip, I used it in very windy weather and had no issues. You can't go wrong with this tarp!

  • Blown away.

    by Rob in Green Bay – 13th May 2014

    This is the best piece of gear I have ever bought. Period. There is nothing that could make me more pleased with this tarp. Lightweight. Durable. Doors. Beautifully constructed. Fantastic attention to detail. Translucent. Love, love, love this tarp. This is the last tarp you'll ever own, its just that good.

  • Best Purchase Ever!!

    by Nathan Klairmont – 7th May 2014

    This tarp is truly amazing! I took this gem out on a 2 night adventure a few weeks ago in the White Mountains and it exceeded all my expectations! Weighing in at only 6.5 ounces and taking up minimal pack space it provides you with complete protection from the elements. If you are on the fence about buying, hesitate no more!! This was THE BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER MADE and was worth every penny!! Im about to order a 30 degree under quilt and if the craftsmanship is anything like the tarp I will love it!! Keep up the good work Adam and team!! Happy hanging.

  • Do yourself a favor and just buy one!

    by Chris L – 5th May 2014

    Don't know what to say that hasn't already been said. Adam and staff have done an excellent job with the design and construction of this tarp. Quality and craftsmanship are second to none on all Hammock Gear products that I own. Love the interior room that this tarp provides and the doors are an awesome addition for increased weather protection and privacy. I love lying in the hammock on a clear night and being able to see the moon through the Cuben material. Be the envy of all your hiking friends and buy the best hammock tarp on the market!

  • Ultra Light, Ultra Dry

    by Douglas Meyer – 22nd Apr 2014

    This is my first experience with Cuban Fiber and I must say, it is worth the cost given its carry weight (8 oz with steaks and guy line), along with its waterproof protection. So far, I have little cons about this tarp, other than its a tad noisy, and has very little stretch. Neither cons really bother me much. I have used this tarp in rain, sleet, and high winds with no problems. I also recommend purchasing the tarp covers, also Cuban Fiber.


  • great tarp

    by Justin – 16th Apr 2014

    A bit pricey, but if you are serious about backpacking this is the tarp you should have. It's extremely light weight for the amount of coverage you get, and very well made. Set it up in a 24 hour rain storm when it first arrived and kept me completely dry and happy. Glad I spent the money on it. Here's a video.


  • This tarp is the bee's knees!

    by Chili – 11th Apr 2014

    El tarpo de Cubano es muy....ahem sorry. Given the name, I got a little carried away. The Cuben Fiber Hammock Tarp with Doors is amazing! I couldn't believe how light it is and at 6.5 oz (minus suspension), it is worth its weight in gold! Thanks Adam and Thorwren for making such awesome and high quality hammock gear!

  • Not only light weight, fool proof!

    by Chuck Burgess – 17th Mar 2014

    I bought this tarp because of how light weight it is. But when I got it into the mountains in March 2014, I realized that it's more than just the light weight that makes this a great tarp. I had it pitched the way I thought would work best. Little did I know what the wind would do to it when it started blowing. Because of my lousy setup, the tarp sagged when the tension on the lines let up. But even with a not so taught pitch, this tarp kept me seriously protected form the wind and freezing rain. It had icicles hanging off the bottom of the tarp in the morning. But I didn't feel one bit of wind or moisture... and the tarp touched my hammock most of the night! I love this tarp. I will never go back to anything else. Thanks for making a fool proof light weight product. I love it! - The Hammock Backpacker (https://www.facebook.com/hammockbackpacker)

  • Tarp, Customer service is absolutely the best!

    by JohnL – 15th Mar 2014

    I ordered my tarp and was instantly please with the weight and construction. The tarp pulls taught so that it shed the wind and rain. Somewhere along the line I managed to know a small hole in it. I talked to customer server, sent them the tarp and had it back in less than 5 business days! Absolutely the best!

  • Worth every penny

    by Greg Wheat gunner76 – 10th Mar 2014

    Got after a AT hike as a way to reduce weight. At 8 oz ( I got the 12 ft ridge line version) it is half the weight of my other tarp and this one comes with doors. Quality is excellent. This is my go to tarp now.

    Requested that the folks who worked on the tarp autograph their work and sure enough, they did in a corner so I have a true custom tarp,

  • fast turn around

    by treerock – 4th Mar 2014

    excellent tarp for the weary the legs to carry! incredibly light.

  • Best Shelter on the Market!

    by Garrett Jorewicz – 21st Feb 2014

    Make no mistake, Cuben Fiber is expensive... When I first stumbled across cuben fiber tarps, I thought to myself: "You'd have to be crazy to spend that kind of money on a stinking tarp!!!" Well, I must be crazy... But I couldn't be happier...

    I did a lot of research on different shelter materials, brands, sizes, etc... I didn't want to buy a small, ultralight, fair weather tarp, and then a second tarp for winter and inclement weather. I wanted one solution that would meet all of my needs... Adequate coverage, doors (with tie backs) for winter/wind protection, strong material, waterproof, and ultralight.

    I was turned off by the idea of Silnylon due to the fact that can bleed through in some cases, and they also absorb a little bit of water which means more weight... But when I found Cuben Fiber and did my homework, I quickly realized that it is the ultimate material for a backcountry shelter. It met all of my criteria at a fraction of the weight of other materials. SOLD!

    I have used my tarp shelter several times already and have no complaints what-so-ever. That said, I would encourage you to pick up some mesh tarp sleeves from MountainGoat Hats and Goods (http://www.outdoortrailgear.com/cottage-industries/mountaingoatgear/mesh-tarp-storage-sleeves/). The nice thing about these tarp sleeves is that they are super light and they really do a good job of protecting the cuben fiber material. From what I have read, cuben fiber is really strong, but it can puncture if you handle it incorrectly and drag it on the ground or knock it into a broken tree limb or whatever... By using the tarp sleeves, you really limit the potential for exposure and damage and it is way easier to setup and tear down as opposed to having to fold it over and over. The downfall however is that the tarp ends up being pretty bulky in your pack. Small price to pay in my opinion.

    Two things to consider... If you get this tarp, I would encourage you to reach out to Adam first and have him (for an extra fee) add door tie-backs for each of the doors. That is definitely a nice feature, especially for fair weather camping. Also, I paid the extra $ for the camp print and I couldn't be happier. Although the standard color looks to be a little more translucent (which is cool in my opinion), I just think a camp tarp looks better out in the woods than something that is a solid color. It just looks more natural out there...

    That said, don't hesitate to order this product from Hammock Gear. It is extremely high quality, and will meet your shelter needs without adding any noticeable weight to your pack. Go for it!!!

  • what a night

    by Walking stick – 30th Dec 2013

    I brought this trap because in November I was on Springer Mt when a storm came with my old cuben fiber flat trap.. The wind where I was set up usually come in from the west this storm came from the northwest. So i had a hole in my coverage. Luckily, it wasn't a very bad storm but it did make me decide to upgrade to a standard 4 door tarp. Last night, December 28, 2013 I was back up Springer Mt and it was a really strong gully washing type storm. it was easily the stormiest night that I had in a hammock. Once I set pitch right on the tarp. the only other thought I had was to wish that gotten the winter place with the extra 2 feet of coverage. That said I want to thank you for making this tarp because it really protected me. I was able to warm up and dry out and get 6 hours of sleep. Thank and best of everything in the coming New Year
