Tentsmiths 8′ X 8′ Oilskin Tarp

This is it. The world-famous Tentsmith’s tarp, as seen used by Joshua in a couple of his new films. Shelter anywhere, everywhere under your own lovely oilskin tarp. Constructed of the same fabric as our Watchcoats, the oil/wax finished long staple cotton makes a wonderful tarp for a great early feel. Tarp weight is 4 lbs., 8.3 ounces. All tarps are finished with loops on all four sides and on the seam.

This Oilskin Tarp is 8’×8′, and has one seam and is finished with a center loop. All tarps have loops down the center seam, but some folks like to have a great big center loop with extra reinforcement. This Tarp does have the reinforced center loop. All the loops are heavy duty as they need to stand up to the constant tugging and pulling from the elements. We add the center extra heavy duty reinforcement for those folks that might want to use the tarp as in the diamond set up.

    I’ve had mine for over 3 years now, even left it up after filming the “Foresters Tent” series for YouTube, left it up ALL WINTER LONG in the Adirondacks and it got beat on and covered with snow. Retrieved it in the spring. Not a scratch on it, never even needed to retreat it. Cant recommend it enough so that is why I chose it to offer her on the website. Hands down best traditional tarp made.

    I got my order quickly. The Tentsmith tarp is very well made and durable; I suspect it will last a long time. It does what I need a tarp to do and it looks great!

    I was on the fence with this for years, maybe 5-7 before I bought it. My only complaint is now I have a dozen or more other tarps in every size, shape, and material you could imagine that I no longer want. I should have bought this from the start.
