The Quest

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 hex tarp system 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 4 perimeter tie outs and 3/4" Beastee D-Rings on the ridgeline tie outs. 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.

    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.

    I got the 12 foot tarp . Have only used it one time so far but I liked enough to lend out my Super Fly tarp.

    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

    Excellent tarp

    Posted by Wayne C. on 6th Sep 2018

    I bought this to replace my worn out summer tarp. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I have used it 3 times since purchasing. 2 of the 3 were in major storms. It kept me completely dry and withstood a pretty good beating from the wind. Construction and materials are both top notch. The price point is excellent to boot. I cannot recommend this tarp enough.

    Light weight and awseome

    Posted by Robb C. on 7th Jul 2018

    Much lighter than my Winter tarp. I was worried that it would not keep me dry in a bad storm. I was worrying for nothing. This tarp kept me totally dry in a torrential rain storm. This is my new go to tarp! Love it!

    High Value, High Quality, Low cost

    Posted by Drew on 31st May 2018

    The Quest is my first "real" hammock designed tarp. I could not be happier. Got the 12 ft RL, so I have TONS of cover and room. When tied out (shock cord on the corners, hookworm, and zing-it to stake), it stays put. Wind and rain do not shake the edges and 100% (to the time of this review) waterproof. I got the wolf grey, and it looks awesome with my blue hammock.
    My only complaint and this is with me and not the tarp, is learning how to fold it up. The silnylon is slippery.

    Beautiful Tarp, very happy with it.

    Great Tarp - great customer service.

    Posted by Jespin - Greenville SC on 19th Apr 2018

    I’m giving it 5 stars based on weight, performance and cost. First time out it rained hard and I was perfectly dry. I think the Quest is hard to beat for the price point and weight.

    This is a great tarp. I ordered this replace my Winter Dream 11' tarp. It is much lighter and packs a great deal more compact. I'm not sure it will replace my Winter Dream and I have come to rely on the doors in windy wintery conditions. BUT - as soon as the weather is consistently in the mid 40's or above (when I can deal with the wind) this WILL BE MY GOTO!!!

    If you buy this, you'll be glad you did!!
