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.

    Tarp Sleeve

    Posted by Joe on 27th May 2020

    Great sleeve. I plan on buying them for all of my tarps. I like mesh so much more then sleeves made from nylon because it takes less room to pack the tarp with sleeve on. Very good quality and value. I usually sew up my own gear but this saves you a lot of time. I love how it makes tarp setup so much faster. During the day when I want to talk to my mates I can wrap my tarp up. I have put short tethers with small hooks on all my stakes. This allows me to quickly unhook all my guy lines without having to pull out stakes or lose them. Bank line works the best. Hooks from dutchware. Another trick i use on my guylines is a metal rectangle with two holes to tighten and loosen the guyline with a flip of the wrist from Lawson supply. Sorry can’t think of name of doohickey but go to Lawson equipment outdoor gear. They have a small product offering but shipping is free and quick and reliable like hammock gear. i am a knot guy but being able to be a “tarp” guy takes many outings. Always thinking up new ways to make it expedient and fun. The sleeve is just one more example. Thank you Hammock Gear and other suppliers too.

    Normally I prefer two piece snake slimes but really like this one. Wrangles the tarp a little easier than the two piece skins. Well made, fast shipping, great company to do business with.

    Mesh Sleeve

    The sleeve is awesome. Super light and does the job. Nothing fancy but makes setup and tear down simple. Easy install. I used it with my UGQ SilPoly HANGER12 CATCUT HEX. Maxed out the stuff sack but not bad. Totally recommend this.

    Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    Great customer service. I ordered it Tuesday and it arrived Friday. 1st order from HG but won't be the last. I had been using a solid sleeve but I got tired of the moisture that got trapped inside and having to spend time using a hair drier, when I got back from camping, to make sure no mold had a chance to grow inside. Havn't got a chance to use it yet besides installing it on my tarp but hopefully all I have to do now is hang up my tarp to air dry and be done with it. It seems to be great quality but being mesh it will be more susceptible to snags so a little more care is needed but no big deal.

    Mesh Tarp Sleeve

    Posted by Jeremiah G on 18th Mar 2020

    Great quality from HG, as usual. I'm used to using a 2-piece tarp sleeve setup so I wasn't sure how I'd like the single tube, but it was surprisingly easy, and did a great job of gathering everything up, sliding from one end. Stitching is great, and delivery was fast.

    My only suggestion would be to perhaps add a couple inches to the overall length. It says it's good for tarps up to 12', and I'm using it on a 12' tarp - when you get to the end, you have to kind of tuck the end of the tarp in to get it cinched up, and that ends up pulling the opposite end a little exposing a few inches of the other side of the tarp. You can then work it back and get it to fit reasonably well, but adding an additional 2-3 inches would make this near perfect.

    Thanks, HG!

    Tarp Sleeve

    This mesh tarp sleeve is an excellent addition to my hammock/tarp system. It makes setting up and breaking down my tarp a cinch. Simply attach the ridge line to 2 trees then slide the mesh back to stake out the tarp. Break down is as simple as pulling up the stakes and sliding the mesh over the tarp to contain everything. Doesn't get much easier.
