Our Mesh Tarp Sleeve is 12 feet long, features a one piece design, and will cover your entire tarp up to 12 ft in length, including the guyline.  Whether it be Dyneema® Fiber or Sil-Poly tarps, this sleeve will fit them all.

If you are looking for a quick, sleek way to deploy and store your tarp, this is it!  Made from super strong dense mesh, this sleeve offers a great way to help ventilate your damp tarp while out on the trail.  It also allows your tarp to be both readily available and consolidated above your hammock on those beautiful clear nights.  Should you feel a sprinkle or two, simply slide the sleeve off and deploy your tarp quickly before a potential downpour.

Once installed, the sleeve can easily live on your ridgeline or be removed based on your preference. We also recommend stowing your tarp in this sleeve before placing your shelter in it's stuff sack. This makes packing, unpacking, and orienting your tarp before setup very quick and easy. No more fumbling with large swaths of fabric or air trapped in the tarp when stuffing away for storage. 


*Please note that if you are using this sleeve with a Dyneema tarp, you must roll the panels from the bottom towards the ridgeline before stowing inside the sleeve. Once rolled into the sleeve, continue to roll into a tight ball before stowing in stuff sack. This method prevents damaging the unique material, adding longevity to your Dyneema® Tarp.

    Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    Posted by LB on 11th Sep 2020

    I had zero experience with tarp sleeves/snake skins. This has made putting up and taking down my Superfly tarp a breeze. I should have gotten one years ago. I highly recommend this sleeve.

    Easy pack up

    Wow. The snake skin worked flawlessly on the Foothills Trail. Made our morning pack up easy with more trail time

    lightest version of this I could find!

    Posted by Dan Watts on 28th Aug 2020

    I was drawn to this particular snakeskin after watching a video where it was compared to a DCF version and was found to actually be lighter! I can say after buying it that my findings are the same. This snakeskin does the job at 22g, and allows for the tarp to breath a bit for condensation to evaporate (not inside the rolls, but better than a non breathable skin would). Very happy with my purchase.

    Mesh tarp sleeve

    Posted by Jim on 24th Aug 2020

    Very lightweight, works great. It's so thin and light that it can be hard to take off or put on. Overall I'm very happy with it.

    Cool but Smallish for a Kelty 12'

    Posted by Repeter on 12th Aug 2020

    it was rather difficult to get it situated with a Kelty 12' tarp. I suspect that it'll work better with a different fabric tarp. I'm fairly new to hammock camping so it may just be me.

    Response from Hammock Gear:
    Thanks for the feedback! That tarp is pretty large. If you feel the need to return the sleeve, please contact us at

    used on 5 day Isle Royale hike

    Posted by Jeff on 27th Jul 2020

    I used this product for the first time on a 5 day hike at Isle Royale national park. I absolutely loved it. It literally saved 20 minute each morning packing my rain fly. My only complaint would be that when it came the cinch cord was missing. I just made by own with a piece of paracord, So it wasn't a big deal.

    Light and perfect for my Quest

    Posted by James Plyler on 30th Jun 2020

    This one piece mesh tarp sleeve is perfect for the 12 foot Quest tarp, it holds the tarp up and out of the way when setting up in nice conditions and the tarp goes back in nice and slick. I used sil nylon snake skins in the past but I think this will help to shed some water off of the tarp better and it is way lighter.

    Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    Posted by Bob B on 16th Jun 2020

    I really like this sleeve. I use it with a WB Superfly and it slides right in. I have a two piece sil-nylon sleeve that I'm happy with, but when I need another, I'll get this. Lightweight, no snagging, and good closures

    Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    Posted by Sean Emmerich on 6th Jun 2020

    I am so happy with these sleeves. I have used others but these are the best by far. Fits the Dyneema Palace Tarp wonderfully, and that is a large tarp. Highly recommend this product.
