Heron Rain Tarp

Ah, the sweet pitter-patter of rain on a 8.6 oz Silpoly rain tarp. This ultralight hexagonal rain tarp is the perfect companion for your next hammock camping adventure. While most ultralight tarps are made from 1.1 oz Silnylon that stretches when wet, ours is made from a newly developed 0.9 oz Silpoly to be able to deliver a crazy light, full coverage tarp that will not mist through or stretch. Sleep comfortably knowing you are high and dry while the sound of the rain puts you to sleep. Includes a tube of Sil-Net for sealing seams.

This tarp is sweeeeeet. Easy setup and takedown. Can be used on the ground if you'd like. Or if there are no trees around. Lots of room underneath. Buy this tarp.

Rain Tarp

I love the Heron rain tarp. I bought this one to replace the other one I got 3 years ago. The tarp is fantastic and extremely light. The reason I’m replacing my old one , is because the plastic ends that attach to the ridge line both broke this past September while I was on the AT in North Carolina. Bad thunderstorm and 30 mile an hour winds with gust of 45. The tarp held up fine and kept me dry, but eventually a gust hit the tarp so hard that it snapped both end pieces at the same time. I did manage to tie the ridge line to the loops on the ends and stayed dry. But I like the plastic tensioners way better. Easy quick to set up in minutes. I look forward to many more happy miles with your products.
