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, mesh

    Posted by Gary on 23rd Jun 2019

    Ive had the sleeve for about a year and used it for around 2 months of camping. Very happy with it.
    On June 2nd we started a family camping trip that lasted 18 days. My tarp had the skin and my daughters tarp didn't. It quickly became obvious that the skin makes set up and pack up much easier, faster and cleaner. Im ordering a second skin for her tarp.

    Mesh sleeve

    Just what I was looking for. This one peace mesh sleeve works great and is long enough to cover my tarp completely. Very handy for deploying and and packing up. I was previously using a two peace method and It wasn't nearly as convenient.

    You don't need this until you own it!

    I really didn't think I needed this until I used it. Upon receiving my snakeskin I immediately took out my new, unopened tarp with doors, hooked up my guy lines and shock cord. Upon takedown, I did not have to remove my guy lines and shock cords or ridgeline. Just fold your cordage in and slide the snakeskin over! Basically that's it. When it comes to your ridgeline, just figure eight the lines, secure them and tuck them into the ends.

    By the way, the tapered end was sheer genius.

    Thanks Hammock Gear. You made my life much easier.

    This mesh sleeve makes take down and set up of my tarp so much easier. I have a large superfly tarp and it fits perfect in this sleeve. It’s much easier to use than the mesh sleeves with two separate sleeves that meet in the middle.

    Simple and effective product

    Posted by NJHeart2Heart on 23rd Apr 2019

    I've only had a chance to try the tarp mesh sleeve once so far. Although it was initially challenging to get on the ridgeline (because by design the one side hole is verrry small), once on it was a BREEZE to pack up my tarp! Can't wait to use it on a weekend event coming up! Would definitely recommend the product and the vendor :)

    You need this, but just dont know it

    Posted by James on 22nd Apr 2019

    This thing is great, and makes unpacking and packing up your tarp so much easier. This fits the Arrowhead Equipment Toxaway tarp perfectly, and there's plenty of room in the tarp stuff sack for the tarp, this sleeve, and guy lines. I'm sure HG tarps are fantastic, but just wanted to share with others that may not have HG gear. I already had my tarp when I found out about HG :-).

    Mesh Sleeve Awesomeness

    Posted by OutDoorPastor on 19th Apr 2019

    This sleeve is just what I needed for the rainfly I use with my hammock. It is light weight and does not take a lot of space in my pack. It helps with a quick and easy set up and breakdown of my system. Additionally, it facilitates the drying process when I have to pack up wet gear. the only thing I would change is I would make both ends of the sleeve wide open instead of tapering one end. I know it would add a little weight, but I think it would be worth it.

    Sweet Surprise!

    Posted by Mike on 18th Apr 2019

    Got this sleeve a month or so ago and just had the chance to test it out. I was concerned it might not fit my Amazon cheapie tarp very well and grew more concerned when I opened it from the packaging and saw how small in diameter it was. But it not only fits my thick, bulky tarp but it also packs down smaller when coiled up in the sleeve than my old-fashioned method - stuffing. I love how easy it deploys and packs back up. This is a game changer with respect to hammock setup efficiency!

    Easy peezy

    Posted by Michael on 17th Apr 2019

    I use this sleeve with my chill gorilla hex fly and it's very efficient. When I pack it, I kind of coil/stuff my fly loosely in its sack and it pulls out fast and easy to use.
