QUEST OUTFITTERS catenary TARP

wpe65.jpg (10699 bytes)

Features
30 denier silnylon 2 person tarp design weighs only 12.65 oz. Front and rear are tapered to minimize
weight but still provide an overhang area. Custom catenary cut along the ridgeline makes the tarp
pitch taunt. Five reinforced tie outs per side for the most flexible set up options. Grommeted front
and rear webbing for tieouts at each peak are different colors to make set up easier. Tarp can be
set up with optional lightweight aircraft aluminum tent poles or with hiking sticks. Tent hooks along
ridgeline offer a place to hang a clothesline or light. Stuff sack instructions provided.
  • Ridgeline length 117" and 101" along bottom edge
  • Front 43" High
    110" Width (55" ea. side)
  • Rear 35" High
    86" Width (43" ea. side)
  • Overhang 10 1/2" at Front, 7 1/2" at Rear
  • Width when staked out = Front 79", Rear = 66"
  • Weight (w/o stakes, stuff sack or seam sealer) = 12.65 oz. (360 grams)

Weight stuff sack = .35 oz. (10 grams)

Suggested fabrics
:
  Silnylon, Cuben. coated 2.2 oz ripstop (fabric must be 56" wide)

Depending on fabric selection the completed project weights approximately 12.65 oz. (using
Silnylon fabric)

Due to each designs size, exact measurements and
instructions for layout are given rather than a pattern.

 

KITS INCLUDE ALL OF THE SUPPLIES NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE TARP (IE:  FABRIC (SILNYLON),
THREAD, GROSGRAIN, CORD,   EVERYTHING LISTED IN THE SUPPLY LIST EXCEPT THE OPTIONAL
ITEMS.  ITEM# 9121 & 9123 INCLUDES PATTERN AND INSTRUCTIONS). 


DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1STS AND 2NDS ON SILNYLON:  We sell a hundred yards of 2nds to every
1 yard of 1sts.   Every now and then it may be slightly dirty or there may be a mark in the fabric or
there may be an extra amount of silicone in the form of a narrow, whitish streak.  In other words
there may be minor cosmetic imperfections but we won't sell any silnylon that we feel is structurally
compromised unless you know about it ahead of time

wpe55.jpg (6812 bytes) wpe6.jpg (41796 bytes)
   
This ultra-lightweight system helps to eliminate heat loss and keeps your sleeping bag insulation dry adding extra warmth and comfort during cold or damp nights. It also
protects your bag from the elements and exterior wear and tear providing you many extra years of use from your bag. Two bivy sack designs to choose from. [View 2 using
a waterproof breathable top and coated taffeta tub including noseeum, thread, hook & loop, zippers & pattern costs approx. $59 to make].

Design #1: Basic design that minimizes weight and assembly time. Hook and loop closure and rainflaps along the top of the hood opening keeps the elements out. Simply
pulling back the hood accesses optional built-in no-see-um netting.

Design #2: Uniquely designed hood has 2 reversible pull zippers along each side so the hood can be pulled back when it is not needed. Rainflaps and hook and loop hood
closure keeps the elements out. Simply pulling back the hood accesses optional built-in no-see-um netting

Suggested fabrics:  Top and Hood- waterproof/breathable (Stormshield, Gore-Tex,  Weathertek). Bottom Tub- lightweight, waterproof (coated taffeta, ripstop, oxford).
Nettting- No-see-um

Depending on fabric selection the completed project weights approximately 16 oz.
Approximate finished size is 88" long x 33" (at head) x 19" (at foot).

Due to each designs size, exact measurements and
instructions for layout are given rather than a pattern.

BILGY TARP TENT

 

 

Roomy, sturdy, and totally protective against bugs and blowing rain.
 

 

Tarp Shelter has a large silnylon Tarp attached to a no-see-um Shelter with silnylon bathtub floor and
end flaps to completely cover and protect both ends of the Shelter from wind and rain. The
no-see-um door and the silnylon door flap can be rolled up and secured (velcroed) to the floor. One or
both sides can be lowered to the ground to shed wind. Inside pocket, clothesline & light hanger.
  • Large Tarp with sit-up height, and awning for cooking and wet gear storage. One-piece
    design keeps Shelter dry during setup and takedown in the rain. 
  • Mosquito Shelter with bathtub floor and large, zippered door. Flaps at both door and foot
    stop wind and rain. Tub floor rejects flowing groundwater.
  • Excellent, adjustable ventilation; no sidewall or end condensation, ever.
  • Preset-adjustable lines, easy setup and fast takedown.
