  • Excellent tarp

    by Wayne C. – 6th Sep 2018

    I bought this to replace my worn out summer tarp. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I have used it 3 times since purchasing. 2 of the 3 were in major storms. It kept me completely dry and withstood a pretty good beating from the wind. Construction and materials are both top notch. The price point is excellent to boot. I cannot recommend this tarp enough.

  • Light weight and awseome

    by Robb C. – 7th Jul 2018

    Much lighter than my Winter tarp. I was worried that it would not keep me dry in a bad storm. I was worrying for nothing. This tarp kept me totally dry in a torrential rain storm. This is my new go to tarp! Love it!

  • High Value, High Quality, Low cost

    by Drew – 31st May 2018

    The Quest is my first "real" hammock designed tarp. I could not be happier. Got the 12 ft RL, so I have TONS of cover and room. When tied out (shock cord on the corners, hookworm, and zing-it to stake), it stays put. Wind and rain do not shake the edges and 100% (to the time of this review) waterproof. I got the wolf grey, and it looks awesome with my blue hammock.
    My only complaint and this is with me and not the tarp, is learning how to fold it up. The silnylon is slippery.

    Beautiful Tarp, very happy with it.

  • Great Tarp - great customer service.

    by Jespin - Greenville SC – 19th Apr 2018

    I’m giving it 5 stars based on weight, performance and cost. First time out it rained hard and I was perfectly dry. I think the Quest is hard to beat for the price point and weight.


    by J. Cullop – 16th Apr 2018

    This is a great tarp. I ordered this replace my Winter Dream 11' tarp. It is much lighter and packs a great deal more compact. I'm not sure it will replace my Winter Dream and I have come to rely on the doors in windy wintery conditions. BUT - as soon as the weather is consistently in the mid 40's or above (when I can deal with the wind) this WILL BE MY GOTO!!!

    If you buy this, you'll be glad you did!!

  • Amazing quality at an amazing price

    by Buddy – 27th Feb 2018

    I have only owned one previous tarp and it was a $40 10x8 from amazon. I liked my old tarp and it functioned great for my 9 foot eno hammock.

    However The Quest is in a league of its own compared to my old tarp. The Quest is half the weight and packs down super small. The material feels expensive and quality.

    Sure the Cuben Fiber tarps are going to lighter but they are literally 4x more expensive! I am sure some people are not bothered by the price but if I were to get Cuben Fiber I would be so scared of holes or rips that it would ruin some of the enjoyment for me.

    The fact that The Quest is a quality tarp under $100 is the reason I bought this tarp. It is stronger material than Cuben Fiber so I don't have to be so careful with it and in the event I do puncture or tear the tarp I can easily buy a new one because the price is so low!

  • Great tarp Awesome price!

    by Dave – 8th Feb 2018

    I ordered the Quest tarp in dark olive with an 11 foot ridgeline and lineloc 3 on the four corner tie outs. The stitching on the tarp is top notch. Hammock Gear has always provided me with a customization when ever I have asked. I can't thank Hammock Gear enough. Their equipment keeps me dry and warm.

  • Great first tarp!

    by Pinestraw – 30th Jan 2018

    For the price and build quality, you can't beat the Quest. I have the 11' Ridgeline model and it provides sufficient coverage for my gathered-end hammock. Would recommend to all beginners!

  • A good step up from a starter tarp

    by Brett – 1st Jan 2018

    This is my 2nd hammock tarp. The first was a urethane-coated polyester tarp that I bought when I was unsure about the whole "hammock thing", it did well for me and convinced me to stick with polyester material. What the Quest gives me is lighter weight and greater coverage, D-rings, and a beautiful color and fabric, at a very nice price. I was staying dry in a 10 ft hammock while using a shorter tarp, the additional coverage of the 11 ft Quest is good for more weather protection and peace-of-mind.

  • Exactly what I wanted

    by bradym77 – 19th Oct 2017

    I was looking for a good decent coverage tarp when I'm backpacking just by myself and don't need the extra coverage for myself and my fiance. This fits the bill, it's light, compacts small and I love it doesn't need to be seam sealed. Hammock Gear from Customer Service to the products are top notch!

  • Even smaller and lighter than I expected!

    by Jonathan – 17th Oct 2017

    I ordered this tarp to replace a much bulkier and heavier poly tarp. I spent a long time researching every option before settling on the Quest as the best value for money option, being only slightly more expensive than non-sil tarps. I expected something good but when it arrived I couldn't believe how small and compact this packed down to. Now I'm looking at downsizing my pack as well!

  • Awesome value

    by SuperDave – 5th Oct 2017

    This was my second order from HG where my trip was right around the corner and I wasn't sure if it would come in in time. Both times HG came through in time and with a great quality product!
    I got the 20d silpoly version and the first time out with it I got rained on. Not a drop of water made it through, it's light, packs down small and did I mention the quality? Really well made product, highly recommended.

  • Great tarp, reasonable weight, awesome price

    by Rick G – 25th Sep 2017

    I chose this tarp over another vendor's Xenon Hex Tarp because it is offered in a 12' ridge line (the other vendor only offers it in 11'). Also, the price was a lot cheaper (the 11' and 12') than the other vendor's tarp. So in that regard it has been a great value.
    The tarp is relatively lightweight. It weighs less than a pound with my lines and hardware in the stuff sack. My Quest tarp has also been through several rain storms and high winds and has held up very well. It has kept me safe and dry throughout the storms.
    My Quest Tarp is in the Coyote brown, it s a great non conspicuous color in the forests in New York.
    I would recommend the Quest Tarp for anyone who is looking for a tarp that is "light" but is not as expensive as Cuban Fiber.

  • High Quality Product

    by Tyler T – 21st Sep 2017

    New to hammock camping, new to tarping in general. After needing this item the first two trips out in a row, I was very pleased with how it performed. Set up well, kept out the water and the wind, stayed firmly intact. Thank you HammockGear, for providing high quality gear at a reasonable cost.

  • High quality tarp.

    by Mikey – 20th Sep 2017

    This tarp is made of very high quality material and the stitching looks great. Pitches taut. Haven't had it out in any kind of weather yet but will soon put it to the ultimate test on the Ozark Highlands Trail at the end of October. Didn't have any issues stuffing the tarp back into the provided stuff sack. Fits great.

  • High quality, no unpleasant surprises

    by Scott – 8th Aug 2017

    I got my Quest a few weeks and have only had it out twice, but I have no complaints. I went with the 11ft ridgeline and had some guy lines included. the craftsmanship on the tarp is perfect, I didn't see any sewing issues, and the tie-outs are as sturdy as I'd expect. The only issue I had was the yellow guy-lines (zing-it?) are a bit "waxy" which allow my taut-line hitches to slip a bit (yes, I had it tied correctly :) ). Hardly the end of the world, I just swapped the lines out. Great balance of weight/size/cost.

  • Great, Big, Lightweight Tarp

    by Marc – 4th Jul 2017

    Just finished building out my ultimate hammock setup which includes the 12' version of The Quest. I'm not willing to shell out the bucks for Cuben Fiber when I can have a great, lightweight tarp like this for so much less! I honestly can't believe how light this tarp is because it's huge. Set up with two trek poles, I can sit in my hammock and have an awesome front porch under which I can cook while keep out of the rain. Love it.

  • Very light, packs very small

    by John – 15th Jun 2017

    I ordered this tarp to replace another 12' x 10' hex tarp from Hennessy. The Quest is so much lighter and packs down so much smaller. Had it up in some pretty high winds, and it did great. Fantastic attention to the seams, D-rings, no seam sealing required. You will not be disappointed with this tarp.

  • Great Tarp

    by Kip Bissell – 6th Jun 2017

    Another excellent piece of gear from Hammock Gear! The tarp is well made and provides plenty of coverage for up to an 11ft hammock. Also, I had no problems swapppng out the D-rings for LineLoc 3s. My only issue is that the tarp is a bit tough to get back into its tiny stuff sack. You have to fold it which is a bit of a pain. However, the tarp fantastic and I highly recommend purchasing one!
