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 hex tarp system is both water and windproof, and resists the retention of water much better than traditional nylon tarps. Reinforced with 210D Polyester, all tie outs are built with grosgrain, and come standard featuring 1/2" Beastee D-Rings on the 4 perimeter tie 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. 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 desired hank length and color for instant savings.

    Quest Tarp

    Posted by Lighter, Smaller, and Bigger.. . on 31st Mar 2021

    Weighs less, packs down smaller than my old tarp but far larger. Got 12 ft with linelocs, with clips for the ridgeline tie-outs. Huge coverage, particularly if you set up one side higher, could shelter a small group in light rain. And speaking of rain, held up 100% on the first trip out in 4+ hours of driving rain, did not bleed through even where the hammock was touching the fabric. Great stuff - BTW, 75 ft of cord is plenty. . .

    Perfect Entry-Level Tarp

    Posted by Jeff T.P. on 11th Oct 2020

    I ordered the 12-foot version of the Quest, because I wanted the extra coverage on either end. An 11-foot will fit the Hammock Gear hammocks without issue. So if you want to trim some bulk and weight, 11 foot is fine.

    I strongly recommend you get a snake skin to help wrap up this tarp. Sil-poly is super slippery. I found it very difficult to fold up neatly.

    Also the reflective guy lines are a must. Its amazing how easy it is to see the reflective guy lines with my headlamp on lowest-power red light. It looks like laser lassos are holding down the tarp. But it also means I am not tripping over a guy line when trying to make it back from the fire ring or the cat hole in the dark.

    Great tarp for a great price

    Posted by James Plyler on 30th Jun 2020

    This tarp is absolutely amazing in comparison to what I had been using before. This was an investment to lighten up my hammock tarp system as well as reducing my volume, I was able to do that, and then some, without spending a crazy amount of money. I seam sealed the ridge-line as instructed even though it says you do not have too. I got the 12 foot in the Copper color with the Beastee D rings, which is unique and looks great! It is light and compacts down quite well. I haven't had it in a rainstorm yet, but the hose in the backyard indicates that it is indeed very waterproof. In the sunlight it dried off quickly, and seemed that you could shake off quite a bit of excess water before you packed it up. I love the fact that with a continuous ridge-line, guy-lines, tarp, and the mesh Hammock Gear snakeskin, will EASILY fit back into the provided stuff sack, a feat that I would never have accomplished with my first hammock tarp. The stitching is a work of art, everything about this tarp is perfect in my book, and is going to be a great addition to my pack.

    Great tarp. I needed a tarp with good coverage for my 11 ft hammock that was lightweight and within a seniors budget. This fits the bill 100%. I’ve only used it once so far but I am thrilled with it.

    The item arrived prior to the estimated date, in perfect condition. Stitching and otherwise construction appeared flawless. I opted for the D rings and cord without line locs, I used small bowlines to attach the cord as well. The cord is of high quality and very reflective with any light source. I used this as a tarp for my warbonnet blackbird. I believe I opted for the longer ridge line and was grateful for the extra coverage. I used this on a 4 day backpacking trip with two nights of car camping in the black hills of SD in mid may. It rained the first three days and was windy. This tarp performed flawlessly. It is sturdy and very lightweight. I was able to secure stake and tension quickly and had no problems with leaking or displacement from the wind. I could not ask more if this tarp and would highly recommend it.

    Great tarp at a great price

    Posted by Benny on 28th Apr 2020

    This is my first tarp. I went with silpoly and it’s still light as heck! It was a bit of a pain to seal in my 1br apt (quarantine feels bro) but worth it. It’s lovely!

    The Quest

    Posted by Dave K on 16th Jan 2020

    This is an amazing tarp! Very light weight and strong. Packs up small, was easy to seam seal and is a joy to use in the field. I ordered the copper color and have had several comments on how cool it looks. Very happy with this purchase.

    The Quest Tarp

    Love the tarp! It is larger than the tarp that it is replacing, same fabric, similar construction, but it weighs less. This tarp is very well made.

    Excellent Tarp

    Posted by S H on 27th Apr 2019

    This tarp was just used for a backpacking fishing trip. It rained hard 1 day and 2 nights. The performance was excellent. Lightweight and highly packable but worked well to protect my down quilt. Thank you hammockgear for the great gear and excellent customer service.

    Lightweight and solid coverage. I haven't had an opportunity to test it in the rain yet as rain is easy to avoid in AZ. My hiking buddy liked this tarp so much, she ordered one for herself
