    Works Great, makes set up and tear down so easy , great product

  • Simple

    by CampsWithHorses – 25th Jul 2018

    I prefer this single sleeve over the double sleeve snake skins. Keeps things simple.

  • Love it

    by Ringtail2 – 22nd Jul 2018

    well made. Light weight. Easy to use. Plenty of room if and when I get a bigger tarp. (with doors.) What's not to love?

  • Quality - Get one!

    by Woods and Hills – 22nd Jul 2018

    Sure you could make one and yes there are cheaper versions like the shower scrunchie; but they’ll never compare to the quality, strength and reliability of Hammock Gear. Add this to your kit, you will be pleased for years.

  • Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    by asphaltcowboy – 19th Jul 2018

    Like everybody says, I does let your tarp dry out alittle quicker. It also doesn’t hold water inside of it when your done and back home. That alone is the main reason you should buy this product. It slides very easy over the tarp and is one piece which to ME is more convenient ! I threw out my other sleeves because of wetness inside the sleeve. Thanks Hammock Gear !!

  • Loveing this thing

    by HazyDecisions – 12th Jul 2018

    I love this thing! I have made my own in the past and they work, but the workmanship on theirs is head and shoulders above mine :) My 12' tarp tucks in nice and I have plenty of room to spare. Makes setup and teardown a breeze. I will be buying another when I get a new tarp.

  • Great product

    by brian – 11th Jul 2018

    It’s a great product and it’s very user-friendly
    Keeps your rain fly Neat and organized and keep the strings from getting all tangled up .

  • Perfect snakeskin for my tarp

    by Trudger – 11th Jul 2018

    This is the perfect snakeskin for my 11 foot cuben fiber tarp. I love that it is one piece, not two like the last snakeskins I had. It is very easy to stow and unpack the tarp. Great job!

  • great product

    by Frank – 10th Jul 2018

    Installed on my tarp Ridgeline slid it over and it ate up my 12 by 12 tarp with ease excellent way to store your tarp

  • Fantastic skin

    by JGrove – 28th Jun 2018

    I have used this skin a couple of times and it works amazingly well. Easy to use and makes set up and take down a breeze. Thank you Hammockgear for another great product.

  • Best way to put away a tarp

    by Richard C – 28th Jun 2018

    Very good for whst it is and what it does. It would be nice if it was just a few inches longer. It just fits the 12' tarp, but it has to be stuffed back in. Especially when the small end slides onto the tarp. Maybe a way to close the smaller end, or add a few extra inches.

  • Simple to use

    by Brock Quesnel – 21st Jun 2018

    The mesh sleeve is very light and easy to use. Really makes putting my tarp away and setting it up quick and easy

  • Best Skin for your Hammock Gear Dyneema Tarp

    by Alex – 15th Jun 2018

    Great skin for packing away your Hammock Gear Dyneema tarp. I have the 12 ft ridgeline model and it fits perfectly in the skin. Easy to deploy and easy to pack away. The mesh is great for those days your tarps still wet when you pack up, gives it a chance to dry through out the day.

  • Life is so much easier and faster now

    by April Palmer – 8th Jun 2018

    So freaking easy and fast to set up & take down my tarp now. Thanks so much!

  • Sleeve a Must Pack

    by Slack Packhiker – 7th Jun 2018

    I’m currently section hiking the AT. This 3rd outing is my first with this, or any sleeves. I can’t over emphasis how wonderful it is to slide my hammock in this well made sleeve while packing up, or slide it off when setting up camp.

    I roll it up and stick the sleeved hammock in my pack, no stuff sack.
    Fabulous and lightweight utility item. Highly recommend!

  • Be Best!

    by r00t – 6th Jun 2018

    I debated about whether to get this but am so glad that I did! It saves so much time when setting up or tearing down camp. I also appreciate the option to store a damp tarp on the outside of my pack to dry.

  • Excellent skin

    by Ron M – 4th Jun 2018

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. The seams and stitching are done up right and the skin makes stowing and deploying the tarp amazingly swift and easy, and helps it pack down tight.

  • best way to store a tarp

    by Kap – 15th May 2018

    Got it fast. 20 bucks is a great price for an awesome product. I have to buy more for my other tarps now.

  • excellent!

    by Steve E. – 14th May 2018

    I actually purchased a couple of different tarp sleeves before I tried these. I prefer the mesh so they can dry out and not trap water and these fit perfectly. They are tapered and even the narrow end accommodates my larger size tarp (with doors) without a problem. I'm a "happy camper!"

  • Excellent!

    by Gary – 7th May 2018

    I am no stranger to skins and I really like this one. It does everything that I want it to in a lightweight and reasonably priced package. Excellent product!

  • Wet camping made easy

    by Dorkelji – 1st May 2018

    Allows me to quickly deal with a wet tarp on take down. Since the craftsmanship is outstanding I have less to worry about and can turn my focus back to putting miles on the trail.

  • great product

    by Unknown – 1st May 2018

    The mesh sleeves alleviates the hassles of setting up and breaking down your tarp!! With an appropriately rigged tarp it takes seconds to deploy and is just as quick to pack up!! The mesh allows the tarp to dry if it gets wet. It also takes away the task of folding and stuffing the tarp in a bag when camp is broke!! I would suggest this product to anyone that frequently uses a tarp!!

  • Game Changer

    by Theoryofahiker – 1st May 2018

    This sleeve will change your life. When you get caught in a storm you will really appreciate the sleeve. It provides a great way to keep your guy lines and suspension system organized for easy break down and deployment. The mesh allows you to breakdown your tarp and let it breath and dry out as well after being stuck in a rain storm.

  • mesh sleeve

    by Unknown – 30th Apr 2018

    I loved the first one that I purchased for my Chameleon hammock / Warbonnet superbly tarp so well I ordered another on for my son’s Chameleon Hammock and warbonnet super fly tarp. Great product

  • Super light and works like a champ

    by Ron M – 17th Apr 2018

    This is really slick for setting up and taking down my 12' Warbonnet tarp. The mesh allows the tarp to air out if still damp, and once it is all in the skin, it still fits inside the original stuffsack. Love it.

  • Fantastic!

    by dmcelvy – 16th Apr 2018

    Perfect! Love my Mesh sleeve and prefer it over traditional snake skins.

  • Fantastically Fantastic

    by Davey baby – 12th Apr 2018

    Great snake skins that fit over my large kelty Noah tarp 12. Would highly recommend these and I like the mesh so it let's my tarp breath a bit. Thanks!

  • Just about perfect

    by Richard Bryan – 5th Apr 2018

    I like the mesh better than the silnylon skins, although they have their use as well. Most definitely these mesh sleeves make setup much, much easier. One aspect I haven't learned to love yet is that one end has a very narrow opening: perhaps one inch in diameter. For me this has limited the direction in which I can slide the sleeve and unfurl the tarp. I'd like the ability to pull the skins off the tarp in whichever direction is needed for my particular circumstance.

  • Awesome!

    by Will – 29th Mar 2018

    This tarp sleeve is awesome and lightweight! The one piece design is much easier to use than 2 piece options and eliminates that weird bulge you get in the middle of your tarp.

  • love it !!!

    by Unknown – 22nd Mar 2018

    I got 2 one for my hammock and the other for my tarp. Super slick it just slides with no issues and makes packing and unpacking easy.

  • Awesome product , you gotta have one !

    by Doug Day – 2nd Mar 2018

    Wow , so much better than a 2 piece sleeve, light and fast to cover my warbonnet superfly, my original 2 piece sleeve takes 2× as long to cover my tarp and then usually have the "belly" band in the middle ! Excellent craftsmanship , well worth every penny !

  • Love it!

    by Dutch McElvy – 1st Mar 2018

    The mesh sleeve works great. I like this so much better than the standard snake skins and really prefer the once piece design.

  • Works great on my 12 foot ridgeline tarp

    by Manhattan – 27th Feb 2018

    This is a great addition to my dyneema tarp with 12 foot ridgeline. I just roll it up and can still store it in the cuben fiber bag it cam in.


    by David Y – 26th Feb 2018

    This was so much better than my two piece. I have a Warbonnet super fly and it if it’s great. This was much faster to put away the tarp. I’m to clumsy to work a two piece quickly. I definitely recommend this sleeve.

  • Perfect for my HG quest tarp

    by cquist – 26th Feb 2018

    Forget the snake skins with the tarp bunching in the middle. This one piece sleeve is PERFECT. i love packing up in the morning with one fluid motion. You'll have just a bit of guyline hanging out, just stuff that thing in there. I then fold mine up a few times and pack it up with my dutch ridgeline. I will never have a regular tarp stuffsack again.

  • Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    by Unknown – 26th Feb 2018

    Just picked up this sleeve to pair with my warbonnet edge tarp. Simple enough to get the sleeve on when your tarp is hanging. Looking forward to using this in the BWCA this summer!

  • nice sleeve

    by Unknown – 8th Feb 2018

    Works great for my Superfly.

  • works even for hSeavier tarps

    by cam – 26th Dec 2017

    After ordering a less expensive (translation heavier) tarp, I didn't think I'd be able to find a snake skin that would work . Shug brought me here. I'm happy to report the snakeskin has more than enough room for my larger tarp. I'm excited to use it in the field!

  • super light weight

    by Unknown – 20th Dec 2017

    Having this makes putting and taking down your tarp super fast!!

  • A wonderful piece of Gear

    by gbolt on the trail. – 3rd Dec 2017

    I originally purchased the CF Sleeve for my Palace Tarp; however, I wanted the Mesh Material for use in more wet conditions. The mesh is my choice for a 2018 AT Thru Hike Attempt. This sleeve is very well constructed with one end tapered and the other end a Cinch method. This creates a unique and easy method to slip on or off the sleeve. This end is the reason why I only use Hammock gear Sleeves versus other “skins”. I love the sleeves no matter which material I decide to take on a trip.

  • Great addition

    by Dean – 12th Nov 2017

    I added this to my gear to contain a silpoly tarp I had. It works easily and really makes a nice improvement to handling and deployment of my tarp. Highly recommend this product.

  • good fit for any tarp

    by donzo – 24th Oct 2017

    One piece sleeve with ampeal size for tarp and all your lines just slide to one side and stake out just as easy to stole away remove stakes slide to side easy breezy

  • best tarp sleeve I have used

    by Josh Herod – 23rd Oct 2017

    This is a great piece of gear. Makes setting up and tear down a breeze. I would highly recommend this sleeve. I have used other sleeves in the past and never really liked them. This one is done right with the one end being smaller.

  • AwesomeUpgrade

    by Mike – 23rd Oct 2017

    Just received my mesh sleeve and after checking it out it is very well made.
    My tarp I’m using is a warbonnet mamajamba which I haven’t actually set up yet in the field but viewed allot of blogs and read reviews on using snake skin or mesh and just wanted to get prepared for my AT trip next month.
    The mesh sleeve went over tarp very easily even with the guy lines attached and rolled up. It Stuffed nicely inside the gear bag that came with the tarp. Still very light weight.
    Set up will definitely be easier in this configuration especially in windy conditions.

    Also Kudos to HG’s customer service when I had questions about this product. Thanks for an awesome product, definitely a great choice.

  • Works great

    by Paw_Paw_Drew – 12th Oct 2017

    Just came in today. I was hoping it wouldn't be oversized fit like a silnylon snake skin I have on a House Fly tarp I own. Upon arrival today I had to go out and string up my 12' Winter Palace. It fits perfectly. My only problem is I can't fit it back into the CF bag I was storing it in but I will trade that for a quick take down

  • Shed the skin... Mesh is great

    by Dabrains – 12th Oct 2017

    I have been using a snake skins in pairs (L and R) for my tarp management. There's always that point in the middle when the tarp bunches and you find yourself tucking line and tarp in the skins. Well get ready for a better idea. With this product you simply pull one tapered mesh sleeve from one end to the other and presto, tarp and lines are sorted. The mesh also eliminates the air pockets that have to be burped or milked out of airtight skins. This is a great product that just saves a little time and aggravation on the trail. Thanks HG.
