The Journey

Lightweight and durable with minimal stretch, our silicone impregnated polyester 1.1 oz / yd² (20D) fabric will keep you out of the elements.  This durable tarp system with doors is both water and windproof, and resists the retention of water much better than traditional nylon tarps.  Reinforced with a ripstop grid, all tie outs are built with grosgrain, and include 1/2" Beastee D-Rings on the 6 perimeter tie outs, 4 door tie outs, 4 panel pull outs, and 3/4" Beastee D-Rings on the ridgeline tie outs. We provide a seam sealing kit, standard with each order to waterproof the tarp. The four diamond panel pull outs require seam sealing. Many find that seam sealing the ridgeline of the tarp is not necessary, but it is recommended.  SilPoly Tarp orders placed on or after 6/13/2019 have a lead time of approximately 1 week to ship.  Lead time is subject to change.

Guylines do not come standard with our tarps. However, we do offer discounted hanks of our reflective guyline in combination with any tarp purchase! Simply select your desired hank length and color for instant savings.

    Was finally able to use this for the first time and I am so happy I bought this tarp. Love that it covers my hammock completely and it’s much lighter than my previous tarp.

    Journey 12' tarp (copper)

    Posted by brian on 2nd Aug 2019

    I purchased this for my girlfriend. She has a chameleon hammock and it fits well. I have a Warbonnet Superfly which is a comparable hammock. The main reason for choosing this hammock was the center tie out coming standard. We hike into high alpine lakes mostly and the wind can be intense to say the least. she has shock cord on all tie out points and we went through a hail, electric, rain storm one of the mornings and this tarp worked wonderfully.

    The biggest difference in the cut of this tarp vs the super fly is the bottom dimension. The Journey is more of a hex pattern than the superfly. That said they are both great tarps.

    First things that I noticed were the quality of the workmanship, the small size, and the light weight for a “Winter” tarp. Seam sealing was easy with the included sealant; just set up the tarp inside out and applied two coats. I’ve used the trap twice with my bridge hammock and really appreciate the coverage and space it provides, especially with the side pullouts. Hammock Gear folks are great to work with. Highly recommend their gear.

    This is a really nice piece of equipment. High quality and well made. Due to it's compactness and light weight, it will become my year-round tarp choice.

    Pack Size and Weight

    Posted by Kris on 24th Mar 2019

    I got the Journey for winter camping because of the doors. I was shocked that the pack size was noticeably smaller than another tarp I own that doesn't even have doors. I love the material and all the tie outs for options. The weight is less than I expected as well. I've used it over a Hennessy XL and a Warbonnet Blackbird XLC and there is plenty of coverage. Very happy with it and would highly recommend.

    I got the 12' Journey for my BB XLC hammock. I like the extra coverage it gives me and the built in doors can either be used or pulled up out of the way. Quality is great, no problems. I've used it a half dozen times and everything is as good as the day I got it.
