Shelter in seconds

Great addition to my low weight hunting pack, used it during a heavy squall the day after I received it! Set up in about 2 minutes….myself, brother and gear all stayed dry! Excellent product

Great tarp but could be a little bit longer

This tarp is great kept me dry during some light thunderstorms last night. I love that it came with preattached strings and 6 loose stakes for fastening it down. My only gripe is that I wish it was a bit longer( like2-3ft) as it is just long enough to cover my hammock and I'm positive that had it been windy in the
wrong direction the rain would've easily gotten me wet. Still really like this tarp overall though.

Great light weight tarp

I was pleasantly surprised to see the the seams were already sealed. Not true for most, much more expensive tarps
