Comments about Equinox 10 ft. x 12 ft. Ultralight Backpacking Tarp:

This has a nice silky feel. It's not crinkley like the typical coated nylon tarp. It packs small, and is the lightest I have found. It did leak on my first outing at all three center ties though. A little silicone seal should fix it. I have used the smaller one for years with no issues.

Comments about Equinox 10 ft. x 12 ft. Ultralight Backpacking Tarp:

One of the grommets was missing from one end of the ridge-line and the three tie on along the ridge-line leaked through the stitching with a normal rainfall. The reinforcement of the other grommets was as little as they could do, and felt like a strong gust would rip them out. Returned it and went with the Aqua Quest "Guide" Tarp. Should get it in the mail today.

    Tarp is large and very light weight. I use it for a winter shelter. So far, very pleased. It replaced one I had for years that finally gave out. I expect this one to last a long time too.

      We bought two in 2004 for Philmont 11 day treks. Used them on 3 treks and over and over at home training crews to go. Still in original condition. Bought 6 more to train adult Scout leaders how to prepare for Philmont.
      Big enough to get 12 backpacker under during rain or hail.
      Weighs 2.2 lb with cords, stakes & stuff sacks.

          This is the 3rd Equinox tarp we have bought. We also have their ponchos. Equinox makes quality products. We bought this for tarp camping, but now use it as a cover for hammock camping while backpacking or camping in a campground. It's lightweight and strong for our purposes.

            I bought this ultralight for dual purposes, for hiking and kayaking. For hiking, this is a no-brainer. Its lightweight and strong. For touring kayaking, this is also the way to go since when you're on the river for multiple days / weeks, weight matters.

            I just finished 15 days on the Yukon River in northern canada, and used this twice.

                Although I have not yet used it, the tarp is lightweight enough for backpacking and appears tough enough for much repeated use for general camping. I also appreciate that it is US made.

                  This back packing tarp is exactly what I was looking for. It's light weigh and strong, made of nylon ripstop material, it's also waterproof due to silicone treatment. These tarps are excellent shelters for anyone who doesn't want to carry a tent. With a little para cord you can rig up shade from the sun and protection from the rain. Roll up in it for a quick shelter from a storm. Gather the opposite ends and with a few wraps of para cord, you can rig up a decent hammock or use it to collect rain water. It's one of the most useful pieces of equipment that I carry.

                      A:

                      The ultralight backpacking tarp would not be durable in harsh UV environments like the southwest it the tarp was setup and not taken down each day. Long term exposure to UV rays will degrade this tarp. As for wind- I would pitch in a wind break area. Direct heavy wind stress will not be the best for this tarp.
