"This tarp is insane! It's lighter than a photo of a tarp. Must be made of woven unicorn mane. Thank you ZPacks." -Peter D.
"Got my tarp from you this week & had a chance to play with it this weekend. It's superb. I had a rather geeky and totally enjoyable afternoon pitching it a dozen different ways, going to be perfect for every use I had in mind & then some! Thanks so much for getting it here ahead of schedule & throwing in a tent peg bag." -Ray G.
"Your 8 1/2 x 11 tarp covers my hammock and kayak very nicely. Yours is the best and most innovative gear I've found in 81 years of back packing & boating. Thanks for your great service." -Terry H.

Additional tie out loops
We can sew on additional reinforced loops anywhere you want, however your customized tarp will be non-returnable. The reinforcements are bonded to the tarp, and the stitching is taped if applicable (no seam sealing needed).

The default number of perimeter loops are listed on each tarp size. Feel free to add extras.

You can also add loops on the ridgeline for hanging bug netting, or panel pull outs anywhere on the face of the tarp inside or outside. A common example would be one or two pull outs centered on each half of the tarp.

Draw us a picture if you want crazy tie outs!

Email us with where you want the extra tie outs after you order.
Price: $3.00 each  / .1 oz each
