8'/6' Tapered Tarp - DCF8

$295.00

Not too big, not too small.
This newly sized tapered tarp might just be the sweet spot for many solo tarpers. Offered in two lengths to better fit your needs, this tarp tapers in width from 8' at the front to 6' at the foot to provide more space up front where you need it and create a wind-shedding profile.

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • Catenary cut for a taut pitch.
  • Taped seams do not require sealing.
  • DCF won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • DCF fabric has very low stretch for great wind shedding.
  • Great for partnering with your Bug Bivy or one of our floors.
  • 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" (18" on 10' tarp) in on the ridge from the head end (1).
