Tentsmith’s Oilskin Tarp
The legendary Tentsmith’s Oilskin Tarp, as seen used by Joshua in several of his films and at most of his courses. Constructed of oil & wax finished, long-staple cotton makes a durable, waterproof tarp with a vintage feel.
This Tentsmith’s oilskin tarp is available in 8×8, or the smaller “scout” version in 7×7, has one seam and is finished with perimeter loops and a reinforced center loop which aids in creating head height in several configurations.
All the loops are heavy duty to stand up to the elements.
It’s recommended to seal all seams on a new tarp as the stitching normally stretches a bit during the first few uses.
This is one of the GB2 Cadre’s favorite picks!
7×7 – 3 lbs, 3.2 ounces
8×8 – 4 lbs., 8.3 ounces
Size: 7ft x 7ft or 8ft x 8ft
Is this waterproof?
Yes, but seal sealing is recommended as the seams stretch initially.
Is this fireproof?
No. The material can smolder. Set a safe distance from any fire.
Will this fit me and my gear?
8x8 will usually fit one person with gear or two people without gear. 7x7 is slightly smaller.
