Lightweight and durable with minimal stretch, our silicone impregnated ripstop polyester fabric 1.1 oz / yd² (20D) 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 and tents.  Reinforced with 210D Polyester, all tie outs are built with grosgrain, and come standard featuring 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 also offer the option to upgrade all of the tie outs with LineLoc3 tension hardware to create a knot free set up! If you choose to upgrade to LineLoc3 hardware, we highly suggest adding two of our Titanium Clips to the ridgeline to completely eliminating the need for knots. We provide a free 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 color and desired hank length for instant savings.

    The Journey

    Just completed an October weekend at the Pine River in Michigan. Paddling the Pine was great. However, I endured strong wind and rain coming down two of the four nights I spent in my hammock. This was the first time I used the Journey. I stayed warm and dry by pegging the end panels closed. Tarp performed great. I have over 10 years hammock experience; this is a top notch piece of gear.

    Excellent construction quality and very light considering the coverage it gives.

    The first time I used this tarp was in a thunder storm, it was pouring down rain and the wind was blowing it sideways. I was very glad that I had decided to go with a tarp that had doors. i stayed totally dry that night. The Journey worked great, I thought for sure I was going to get wet. This tarp is well constructed and folds up into a very small stuff sack. I would recommend this tarp to anyone needing a hammock tarp, you might not always need the doors but when you do you will definitely be glad you have them. Awesome tarp and Great customer service. A+++++++

    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.
