Specifications:

  • The original super-taut catenary-cut hexagonal tarps for hammocks and tarp camping.
  • Made out of super light, waterproof 20D Silnylon and SilPro silicone impregnated polyester.
  • Hexagonal shaped to provide efficient coverage of any commercial or home-made hammock.
  • Catenary-cut sides eliminate tarp sagging and wind flappin.
  • Provides cooking, changing, and gear storage space in even wind driven rain.
  • Triple stitched webbing reinforced perimeter with ABS plastic D-rings and nylon pull tabs at all tieouts - 9 years and never a reported failure.
  • All tarps come with a matching silnylon stuff sack.
  • Professional OES ProSeal experienced seam sealing available for only $6.00.
  • Current colors include Stealth-Gray, Forest Green and Coyote Brown. Color preference can be chosen during checkout.

Prices and weights include stuff sack and seam sealing (where appropriate). Compare that to other tarp manufacturers, who force you to seam seal your own tarp and make your own stuff sack, but don’t include these factors in their final weights. Want to save 0.4oz? Leave the stuff sack at home, or use it as a lightweight ditty bag, they’re perfect sized for a cook kit bag or for storing raingear!

New Gen4 features:

  • Same great selection of sizes.
  • 5%-10% weight reduction based on tarp size compared to Gen3.
  • Pack way smaller in stuff sack and in your pack - up to 50%!
  • New structural polyester ridgeline and exclusive 'Zero Force' engineered ridgeline tieouts ensure that the tarp sheds wind and rain without failure.
  • Less stretch due to new polyester webbing reinforcement. This also reduces water absorbtion when packing up a wet tarp.
  • Quieter fabric sheds wind with grace without waking you up at night.
  • Always proudly made in USA, never outsourced.

New SilPro fabric option:

New with our Gen4 redesign, OES now offers a SilPro version of all of our MacCats, available for the ultimate in performance. These versions of our tarps feature a 20D x 50D ripstop silicone impregnated polyester for a huge reduction in tarp stretch when exposed to rain. Strong, lightweight and super quiet. Leave the tarp tensioners at home, this tarp will stay taught. Cuben fiber performance for half the price and without the drawbacks. Seam sealing is included by default for these premium offerings.
