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

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

$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.

Product Availability & Lead time

You may notice that most products are currently marked as "sold-out." With my recent relocation to Montana, I'm taking this opportunity to transition to a model where I don't take backorders and only sell what is in-stock. I realize that this is frustrating, but I believe that it will provide a better experience in the long-term. In the coming weeks, while I get moved in to my new workshop and catch up on existing backorders, I'll make available a rough production calendar so that you can check expected availability dates for products that you may be interested in. Thank you for your patience while I make the transition and get back up and running!

If an item is not marked as sold-out, then that means it should be in stock and available to ship in 1 - 2 business days.

If you have an existing order, please see below for lead-time information. As mentioned when you ordered, these times are estimates and not guaranteed due to the unknowns associated with moving the business across the country.

For orders placed from 5/7 to 6/29, expect your order to ship in about 11 - 12 weeks (current best estimate). Orders for accessories should ship earlier (early July at the soonest), but no promises.

Scratch & Dent items are expected to ship in early July.

For earlier orders, please see the info below for a rough estimate of your ship date.
