Standard Square/Rectangular tarp for maximum protection from the elements short of having tarp doors

If you choose a U-Pick color(which only applies to the solid colors and not any specialty printed fabrics), these are ordered as needed from either Dutchware(Xenon Sil lines) or Ripstopbytheroll (Silpoly lines), so please verify colors and availability at their respective sites.


    • Seam Sealing Included
    • 4 Optional Side Panel Pulls (2 per side - for reference, these are centered in each quarter of the tarp panels unless you specify otherwise)
    • Can easily double as a hammock tarp if you are a hanger
    • Tarp comes standard with 8 tie outs (each corner and one in the middle of each side)
    • On the Straight Edge version you can opt for an additional 8 tie outs that are located halfway between existing tie outs
    • Cat Cut version has 2 curves on each side
    • Optional Bivy attachment points are set in @ 12" from each end (please note that bivy loops are not intended to hang heavier items like water bottles, heavy lanterns, etc.)
    • NEW (1/4/24) - Tie Outs for the top of the Ridgeline Seam are now available on my backpacking tarps.  A small loop is barracked in place at the selected locations.  
      You can choose between:
           - One that is centered
           - Two, with one at 1/3 length and the second at 2/3 length of tarp
           - Three, with a tie out at 1/4, 1/2 & 3/4 along the seam

Great tarp and a great company to shop from.


Good quality product, I’m very satisfied!

Cameron Downey

I ordered 7x9 and it somehow came out to 9.3 oz - I believe around an ounce less than expected! I don't know what happened but I'm happy as heck.

But even aside from that, this is a fantastic tarp - perfect size, high quality, and it arrived so quickly.

Jared is responsive, works fast, and makes great products. Definitely plan on purchasing from SLD again in the future.

Everything I Wanted

I ordered a 9x9 silpoly version and finally got to use it in some inclement weather (steady, soaking rain and moderate wind). It performed excellently. The specs were exactly what I ordered, the craftsmanship was flawless, and it arrived shockingly fast. I can't recommend SLD enough!
