Oilskin Tarp

$238.00$668.00

This is it. The world-famous Tentsmith’s tarp. Shelter anywhere, everywhere under your own lovely oilskin tarp. 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.

SPECIAL SALE 2022. 10′ TARPS AND 12′ TARPS ARE ON SALE, BLACK FRIDAY THRU CYBER MONDAY.

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 reinforcement for those folks that might want to use the tarp as in the diamond set up.

We also have two larger tarps ( 12′ x 12′ & 15′ x 15′), which are finished with two seams and a center extra heavy duty loop.

And now we have oilskin bags, steel stakes and tarred bank line to go with your tarp! Scroll down to get the whole set.

For those who will be backpacking with their tarps, weights are listed below:

  • 7′ x 7′ – 3.2 pounds
  • 8′ X 8′ –  4.2 pounds
  • 9′ x 9′ –  5.2 pounds
  • 10′ x 9’4″ –  5.8 pounds
  • 12′ x 12′ – 9.8 pounds

As an aside, sometimes this website likes to list the tarps as “on Backorder”. Since we make these to order, they are not back ordered. Not matter how many times I tell the website that, I just can’t get it to understand. If you can not seem to order them, emails us, we’ll be happy to make you up a tarp.
