SUPERIOR SIZE

& SHAPE

 

At 12x9 feet, our hexagonal

tarp fits over that park picnic

table or your largest ham-

mock. Catenary-cut edges

keep your tarp taut for

peace and quiet on those

windy nights.

INSTRUCTIONS WHEN YOU NEED THEM

 

Whether you're a seasoned

outdoor maven or a backyard

hammocker, everyone needs

guidance once in a while.

Illustrated instructions are

sewn right on the bag for

a pro setup every time.

HIGH PERFORMANCE FABRIC

  • 100% Waterproof

  • Polyurethane (PU) Coated

  • Watertight Sealed Seams

  • UV Protective


Our lightweight, 210T

ripstop polyester will

keep you totally dry,

protect you from

the sun, and won’t

stretch when wet.​

INTEGRATED
LineLoc TENSIONERS
& CARABINERS

 

Simple setup on the fly – no

knots needed. Be prepared

for that mid-afternoon

mountain deluge or that

cool tropical shower.

DURABLE CORNER

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

 

Triple reinforced corners stand up to high winds

and rough use. No more ripped tarps!

LINE STORAGE
DONE RIGHT

 

Reflective ridgeline and

guylines come preinstalled

and tucked away in the

handy, hook & loop stow

straps, bringing tidiness

to every corner. You'll

always be ready for

action right out

of the bag.

SOLID GROMMETS

AT EVERY CORNER

 

Break free from trekking in

the trees. With our no-rust

brass grommets, you can

set up a freestanding 

shelter with trekking or

tarp poles.

(poles not included)

SETUPS

STANDARD SETUP

The Standard Setup of the Gnarwhal Gear Tarp Shelter is perfect for providing sun, wind, and rain protection anytime there are trees around. Check out the video of the standard setup below!

Standard Tarp Setup Instructions are printed right on your stuff sack!

 

FREESTANDING SETUP

No Trees, no problem! Turn your tarp into a lightweight backpacking shelter or tarp-tent. Two extra stakes and an extra ridgeline rope are included in the accessory bag for a tarp pole setup (poles not included). Simply use tarp poles or trekking poles to prop up both ridgeline corners, and stake out the lines.

PRO TIPS

When packing up your tarp, wrap and stow your lines neatly in the hook & loop stow straps before stuffing, folding or rolling your tarp. Nothing is more frustrating than a knotted ball where your lines should be. You'll thank yourself next time.

MAXIMUM WEATHER PROTECTION

Close the sides down tight for optimal weather protection.

In high winds, tie a simple overhand loop in the loose end of your ropes near the tensioner. This will ensure your lines stay taught through the storm.

EASY BREEZY SUN SHADE

Open up the sides for maximum shade and optimal breeze.
