    Best tarp ever!

    Posted by Paul on 25th May 2019

    It is incredible how light this tarp is! It’s like holding a feather when it is folded up! Set up is so simple and you don’t have to worry about sagging and stretch like a nylon tarp. I camped out in a heavy blowing big rain and my tarp did not budge all night... however the others in my group with silnylon tarps had some very saturated sagging tarps in the morning. It was so nice packing it back up— I just shook off the excess water and it was almost as light as when it was dry!
    I can’t say enough good things about the quality Hammock Gear puts into their products! I highly recommend them and this tarp!

    Awesome tarp

    Posted by Paul on 12th May 2019

    I was hesitant to spend so much money on a tarp, but I did and it is totally worth it! It’s so light you don’t know it’s in your pack! I took it on an overnight trip and rained hard. But this tarp does not absorb water at all so when I packed it up it was still just as light as before! It’s also great because it doesn’t stretch and sag like nylon tarps do. I have side pullouts but didn’t need them because even with some wind, the tarp didn’t cave in like some of my nylon tarps do. Another big plus, for me, is that you can see through the tarp and see the sky and moon on a clear night!

    I only cried once, and barely at that.

    Posted by Ron M on 22nd Jan 2019

    My grandpa told me, "If you buy quality, you only cry once." and he was right. When I felt how light this new tarp was, and how it does not gain weight or stretch when wet, I knew I made the right choice. Barely shed a tear at all, since I felt I got good value for my dollars.

    I am giving my old Sil-Poly tarp to a friend, and it will be an upgrade for him. My hammock/tarp set up just lost a half pound or more, and the quality of the sewing and seams tell me I will have years of good use from this tarp. Also included was a small patch kit for just in case. I like that.

    Also, the communications I had with HG were always answered promptly and I have been Most Pleased with my all my dealings and communications with this company.

    12' Dyneema Tarp

    Posted by Jay S on 21st Dec 2018

    Yeah, the price will scare some. But when the rain is driving into it like machine gun fire all night the price will seem trivial - I did not like the price either, but I paid it and left behind the sagging water saturated sil-nylon blues - could not recommend this tarp enough, snowed on and poured on, no sag, no leak, a lot of win on this one.

    Survived nasty hail storm

    Posted by Rabbit Hole on 5th Sep 2018

    My first night on the AT and 2-3rd time using the tarp a nasty hail storm with 75mph winds and quarter sized hail hit. It punched through a few tents, this bad boy held. I had it staked out into "Oh S^#*T mode" very low and it did great. I'll admit I had my sleeping pad over my head in-case it started punching through but it held like a champ with only a few light impact marks and the tarp got me through my entire 2,200 mile hike-of the AT. This thing will hold through any weather you'll encounter.

    Air feels heavier than this tarp.

    Posted by Ivo K on 28th Aug 2018

    I was amazed with how light this tarp was when it arrived.
    Tested it during a two days hammock camping trip in heavy rain and wind and it worked amazingly well.
    I recommend using it with Dutch stingerz instead of a continuous ridge line.
    And bring earplugs! (It can be a bit noisy when the water hits the tarp.

    Great product excellent customer service.

    Posted by Jordan on 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

    Posted by Joe on 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.
