7'/5' x 9' Tapered Tarp - Silpoly

7'/5' x 9' Tapered Tarp - Silpoly

$105.00 Regular price $120.00

There's something special about sitting under your tarp as raindrops fall around you. This tarp tapers in width to provide more coverage where you need it and less where you don't. Catenary curves on the ridge and edges help produce a wind-shedding, taut pitch in the classic a-frame configuration. Tie-outs are located at the ends of the ridgeline, each of the four corners, and at the midpoints of the long edges. Interior hang loops are located at the ends of the ridgeline and center of the ridge.

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • SilPoly fabric won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • SilPoly fabric has lower water retention than SilNylon.
  • Catenary cuts for a taut pitch.
  • Great for partnering with your bivy.
  • Lineloc tensioners at tie-outs ease pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.

The ridgeline of this tarp needs to be seam sealed as per these instructions prior to use (or use our service). Learn more about material options and considerations on our Materials Page.

Proudly made in the USA from imported fabric.

For backpacks, shelters, tarps, and net-tents:

Notice: YAMA is moving to Montana! Unfortunately, this presents logistical challenges with several unknowns. Currently, I'm planning to pause manufacturing around 5/15 and aim to be back up and running in July. I'm providing my best estimate of expected lead times below, but please understand that these are not guaranteed timeframes.

In appreciation for your patience during this period, I'm discounting a few items. Browse the site to find them!

    • Current: For orders placed after 3/18 @ 430 PM EST: expect your order to ship in roughly 3.5 months. For orders placed earlier within this period, there's a chance that I will be able to ship by the end of May, but don't count on it.

    • For orders placed 3/14 - 3/18 @ 4:30PM EST: expect your order to ship within 8 weeks.
    • For orders placed 3/6 - 3/13: expect your order to ship within 7 weeks.

These lead times are our best estimates and we do our best to meet or exceed them. If you have a trip coming up and need your shelter by a certain date that is near the expected ship date, please let us know by leaving a comment during checkout. Or, if you will be away and do not want us to ship early, please also let us know.
