Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Tarp I bought this to use as a single person shelter while backpacking. I love to test my gear and recently we had a snow/ice storm which allowed me to set up the tarp and sleep outside while still in controlled conditions (access to house). We got over 6 inches of snow and 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice overnight and I slept fine. No tearing or challenges with the weight of the snow/ice on the tarp. I did have to hit the sides several times during the night to try to keep the buildup to a minimum. I think that would be reasonable for any tarp in a snow/ice storm. It held up really well. This isn't the lightest tarp out there, but for the price it's great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It ACTUALLY DOES fold back up into the pouch! I bought this tarp at the last minute on my way to an outdoor movie. It had just rained and I wanted something that would keep my blanket dry and me warm. This tarp was heavy duty enough, and the corners have eyelets in them to assist in securing them, but the thing that impressed me the most? The thing fits BACK INTO the storage pouch! Maybe I am in the minority, but I have had plenty of problems getting things back into their storage containers after I use them. This tarp comes with a breathable section so that it can dry better if packed damp. I would buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Serious Quality Issues We needed a tarp to provide some sun & rain protection for our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, but after being used for 30 minutes in a very light breeze, the grommets began ripping out of the corners. This product is completely useless if there is any wind. We saw several Kelty rainflies being used without problems under the same conditions, so it was clear that the conditions were not to blame for the failures. This product will be returned for something of better quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Scout Tarp Bought four of these tarps for my son's scout troop. They are light enough for a scout patrol to carry (one scout with the tarp, a second with two aluminum poles, a third with stakes + 550 cord) on a backpacking trip and provide sun/rain cover while cooking, etc. Buying so many at one time stung the wallet a little, but I haven't found any tarps this quality at this price point (most are over $100).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blocks the rain and wind Have used 5x7 as shelter over hammock a few diffrent times. It has kept me dry and happy so I ordered the bigger one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grommets ripped This tarp is not waterproof! You MUST seal the seams yourself. The first time we used this tarp, two grommets ripped due to high wind. We were able to duck tape the damage to last through our trip and fortunately REI took the tarp back as a return. Love REI, but not this product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tearing after the first weekend of use After the first use it started to tear at a grommet. I will think twice before dropping this amount on a tarp/fly again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For motorcycle touring I needed something heftier than a sylnylon tarp for motorcycle touring, but not as bulky as your typical hardware store blue tarp. This tarp has worked perfectly as a drop cloth for an occasional, road side quick fix/repair, as well as an emergency shelter. This past summer, my friend's bike blew a head gasket on a long, desert road in New Mexico. He was just recovering from an illness, and I was worried about his health as we waited for the tow truck. With no shade in sight, we pitched the tarp between the two bikes, and in spite of some wind gusts, it held up nicely. With a couple bottles of water and our tarp shade, we did just fine. The tarp got a little oily, but washed off well when we got home. This is one of my essentials, that I take with me, to bolster my confidence on any trip.

What is the difference between water resistant and waterproof? Why is this tarp listed as water resistant?

Asked by: pdx-anc
The Outdoor Products Coated Tarp is considered water-resistant due to the fact that it is simply nylon with a water resistant coating. The pores in the nylon are not small enough to block the passage of water and the coating will eventually wear away. Waterproofness comes from applied fabrics and materials which have such small pores as to block the passage of water. The presence of these materials as laminated layers, or used to seal or tape seams on the item is what provides the classifiction of 'waterproof'.
