People have come to us for the past few years requesting we make Oilskin Tarps for “Trekking”. Constructed of the same fabric as our Watchcoats, the oil/wax finished long staple cotton makes a wonderful tarp for a great early feel. The dark tan/brown fabric is 6.25 oz. per square yard. All tarps are finished with loops on all four sides and on the seam.
Tarps in the sizes of 7’×7′, 8’×8′, 9’×9′, & 10’x 9’ 4″ have one seam and are finished with a center loop. All the loops are heavy duty as they need to stand up to the constant tugging and pulling from the elements. We add the center extra heavy duty loop for those folks that might want to use the tarp similar to the diamond set up.
We also have two larger tarps ( 12′ x 12′ & 15′ x 15′), which are finished with three seams and an optional heavy duty center loop.
The side loops of the tarp are placed at the corners, then at the halfway point of the side, then half way between the halfway point and the corner loop. There are five loops in total on a side.
The 15′ x 15′ tarp has two extra loops per side due to the size of the tarp.
All PRODUCTS ARE “CANVAS ONLY”. YOU WILL NEED ROPES, AND STAKES TO SET UP YOUR TARP, WHICH CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY.
