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.


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.

    Journey Tarp kept my Feet Dry

    Posted by Jeff C on 1st Mar 2021

    I have used this tarp in the 3rd and 4the season where keeping the wind out was essential to a good nights sleep. The end flaps work great and providing more protection when you cant find a good tree hang going cross-wind. plenty of tie outs to keep it from flapping. The only negative was the d-rings are very small, so if your using your treking pole to create a front porch you have to make sure its seated in there good or it could come out. VERY Happy with this tarp. Packs down nice. fits into included bag even after you add guy ropes.

    I wish HG would seam seal!

    Posted by Kody on 7th Feb 2021

    This tarp is very high quality and well thought through. Should be a great companion for many miles to come. My only complaint is that HG does not seam seal it. I am inexperienced with the process and it makes me nervous. I would have paid extra for it if it was an option

    Great tarp

    Posted by Mirto Alanis,jr on 20th Nov 2020

    This tarp is just amazing! My only complaint is that I had to seam seal it myself. Other than that its great. I am just waiting on my snakeskin for it now.

    Great Tarp

    Posted by Todd K on 2nd Oct 2020

    I recently purchase this tarp, seam sealed it and then took it on a trip. I spent three nights on the AT in the Roan highlands (above 5K). For the first two nights, we were camped out in the remnants of tropical storm Beta...lots of wind and rain. It was a great test for this tarp and it passed with flying colors. I stayed dry and warm inside in my HG hammock and underquilt. I considered splurging and going for a DCF/Dynema/Cuben Fiber tarp, but I do not like the bulk...not to mention the price. This tarp packs down small and is still light enough for me.

    Super Water proof and Light

    Posted by Clark on 3rd Sep 2020

    At less than a pound covered two hammocks! Out in an all night downpour on the Foothills Trail. Stayed dry as a bone.

    Great tarp!

    Posted by Andrzej on 2nd Sep 2020

    I have bought 11" version for 11" hammock and I am happy. Doors perfectly protect from wind and rain. I used Zing-It for guy lines and some shock cord with mitten hooks for the doors.

    Journey tarp

    Posted by Brett Kretzer on 24th Aug 2020

    I was going to go with the smaller tarp, but decided last minute to switch to the journey and it was worth every penny! This tarp seriously rules. I had my hammock hung, and 3 people underneath it casually playing Uno during a thunderstorm and we all stayed completely dry. Super versatile and lightweight. My only complaint was that they did not seal the seams before shipping and provided a tube of silicone for the customer to apply instead. I am sure they could have done a much neater job than me.

    Durable, well built, light, packs down nicely. Worth every penny, and the lineloc’s are a huge time saver.

    Nice Tarp!

    Posted by kyle hurt on 18th Feb 2020

    Extremely light and well built. Waterproofing was easy; I diluted the enclosed silicon with white gas and it brushed on easily. I used baby powder to eliminated any tackiness after it dried in the sun a few hours. Once I got all the cordage cut and installed, this thing is trail ready!

    12' Journey - snow bomb survivor

    Posted by Blevins on 20th Jan 2020

    12' is the perfect size for my 11' hammock. PNW camps suffer a fair bit of precipitation. The 2020 9th Annual Yeti Hang was no different, with 6:"-10" new snow the first day loading the trees above for the just-over-freezing following days. Quite a few of us were "snow bombed" and the Journey came through with no issues, even after securing the Beastie-D's directly to the trees after the frozen prusiks slipped from the direct hits on the tarp.

    Any thoughts of making a slightly wider "winter" version?

    11 foot tarp Journey

    Posted by Greg on 15th Nov 2019

    Sweeeeet. Hung it close to ground and closed the ends on a windy 20 degree night and was surprisingly comfortable.
