The panels of this tarp were flipped during construction; the edges became the ridge and the ridge became the edges. The result is that the ridge is slightly longer while the edges are slightly shorter than stock. This isn't a bad thing, just different. The actual tarp is shown in the first photo.

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.

Made from ultralight, 0.8 oz DCF, this tarp measures 9' long and tapers in width from 8'-8" ft at the front to 7' at the foot. 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 under the ridge about 14" in from each end, and at the center (you can also clip items to the tie-outs at the ends of the ridge).

  • Tapered shape uses space efficiently.
  • Catenary cut for a taut pitch.
  • Taped seams do not require sealing
  • Dyneema fabric won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • Dyneema fabric has very low stretch for great wind shedding.
  • Great for partnering with your bivy or our 1P Bug Shelter.
  • Lineloc tensioners at tie-outs ease pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.

Made in the USA.

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: As a solo-operation, my capacity is very limited, and I can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. I only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help me to serve you better. See the last question for more info about this. (UPDATE: I've hired some help which should help improve product availability, but I still expect many items to often be sold out)


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and makes hiring help much more feasible. I'm currently in the process of hiring, and hopefully you'll start seeing more products stay in stock a little bit longer soon.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
