Tents: Lightweight Tarps

UL OVERHANG Tarps

Engineered tarps for the fast and light. This ultra-light range of Overhangs uses 30 denier high-tenacity nylon 66 fabric with a silicone elastomer coating on BOTH sides. The high relative strength and natural elasticity of this fabric make it an ideal choice for these tensile canopies. The silicone takes care of the UV exposure. Don't be fooled, these simple looking products incorporate an uncommon level of sophisticated design and construction detail to make them the best pitching and strongest available. Our trade-mark tear-drop guy attachment is now years old. We devised it, not as a universal guy cord pouch but because simple triangular reinforcing patches build-in new weaknesses. There is hardly a trip that we don't take an Overhang along - when we didn't, we usually wished we had! They are so useful during stops en route and on wet lay days. Looking at the medium size, at roughly 3 metres square and just 700 grams you can easily see why.

Standard OVERHANG Tarps

Engineered tarps for shelter in every season. This economy range of Overhangs uses our regular 75 denier, waterproof, polyester tent fabric. The tensile design engineering and construction quality incorporated in all our Overhangs are world leading. Carefully cut panels, non-stretch, reinforced ridges and perimeters and our original design tear-drop guycord pockets combine with construction details to deliver the best-pitching and strongest tarps available. If you need group shelter or sun shade, enjoy the airy openness of fly camping or simply do stuff outdoors in all weathers, one of these Overhangs is for you.

i-OVERHANG Tarps

Our large, economical 'Institutional' Overhangs for outdoor ed and group use are available in Large and Extra-Large size (XL is a huge 4.5m x 4.5m). These i-Overhangs are designed and built to the same standard as all our other models but with this product you get to supply your own guy cords, tailored to you use and budget. The fourteen guy attachment points follow our original design tear-drop shape providing considerably better strength than common triangular reinforcement patches. For this product the guy attachments are single-layer Hypalon fabric (so no pouches) and they are fitted with Acetal rings to dissipate the stress at the guy cord loop. Because of its large area the XL size is provided with doubled shock cord loops on all these Acetal rings.
