8'/6' Tapered Tarp - Silpoly

$125.00

Not too big, not too small. This new size of this tapered tarp might just be the sweet spot for the solo tarper. Offered in two lengths to better fit your needs, this tarp tapers in width from about 8' at the front to 6' at the foot to provide more space up front where you need it.

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • Catenary cut for a taut pitch.
  • Silpoly won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • Less water retention than silnylon.
  • Great for partnering with your Bug Bivy or our 1P Bug Shelter.
  • Lineloc tensioners at tie-outs ease pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.

Perimeter tie-outs are located at each end of the ridge (2), the corners (4), and the midpoints of each side (2). There are hang loops located at each end of the ridge (2), the middle of the ridge (1), and about 14" in on the ridge from the head end (18" on the 10' tarp). There is an additional tie-out on the ridge about 14" in from the narrow end (18" on the 10' tarp) to allow the option to pitch with an improvised beak.

You will need to seam seal the ridgeline of this tarp prior to use as per these instructions (or use our service).
