    Default Tarp Recommendations

    Looking for recommendations for a fully waterproof, lightweight sil nylon tarp. It needs to have many grommet holes, not just four. 10x10 size. Will be used for search and rescue applications.

    Thanks

    I recently bought a sil-poly tarp from Borah Gear, and so far have been pretty happy with it. It's an 8x10, but they are really great about custom orders. I don't think they offer an 8x10 on their web site, but I emailed asking for one, with custom tie outs, and they responded right away saying they would be more than happy to accommodate me. Tho, t did take a few weeks to be made and shipped, but I expected that for the custom work I asked for.

    I did a lot of research and decided on sil-poly for its ability to not stretch when it gets wet. Sil-nylon tends to need to have the guylines adjusted more when the tarp gets wet, as the fabric stretches out.

    I think the tarp weighs about 12 oz and was in the range of $120.
