8.5' x 8.5' Flat Tarp - Silpoly

$140.00

A great option for tinkerers who like to experiment with different pitches. Gridded tie-outs provide many pitching configurations for maximum adaptability. There are 16 tie-outs along the perimeter, and 9 within the panels and on the ridgeline. The interior tie-outs each include hangloops for draping a bug bivy or other items. To prevent wicking of water through from the outer to inner ties, part of the sealing process is performed during construction, and there is no direct thread connection between the ties.

  • SilPoly fabric won't sag when the temperature drops.
  • SilPoly fabric has lower water retention than SilNylon.
  • Lineloc tensioners at perimeter tie-outs ease pitch adjustment (removable).
  • UHMWPE Core guyline with reflective tracer included.

This tarp is made from SilPoly to avoid sag and minimize water retention. For higher tear strength, we can also make this tarp from SilNylon by request. The ridgeline of this tarp and panel tie-outs need to be seam sealed as per these instructions prior to use (or use our service).

Due to the increased versatility of this tarp we do not supply installed guylines and tensioners so as not to steer you towards any particular pitch. We recommend using our Fastline Clips with varying lengths of line so that you can easily relocate guylines on the tarp as needed.

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.
