Wilderness Equipment Overhang Ultra-light Tarp
Engineered tarps for the fast and light. This ultra-light range of Overhangs uses 30 denier high-tenacity nylon 66 fabric with a silicone elastomer coating on BOTH sides. The high relative strength and natural elasticity of this fabric make it an ideal choice for these tensile canopies. The silicone takes care of the UV exposure. Don’t be fooled, these simple looking products incorporate an uncommon level of sophisticated design and construction detail to make them the best pitching and strongest available. Our trade-mark tear-drop guy attachment is now years old. We devised it, not as a universal guy cord pouch but because simple triangular reinforcing patches build-in new weaknesses. There is hardly a trip that we don’t take an Overhang along - when we didn’t, we usually wished we had! They are so useful during stops en route and on wet lay days. Looking at the medium size, at roughly 3 metres square and just 700 grams you can easily see why.
Overhang Large (4.5m Long x 2.95m Wide)
This is the Overhang for Outdoor Education groups and commercial operators. It's also the one if you going lightweight with all the family or a group of friends. The large Overhang makes an ideal cooking or field meeting shelter. It's big enough to work effectively pitched up a little higher. A favorite in Tasmania.
Overhang Medium (3m Long x 2.95m Wide)
The medium size Overhang is a good compromise for small groups use or a family of four. Pitch it low if it's windy. Fill in one end with your packs. Weight down one point to collect water. Use it as a big ground sheet for packing up on, organising gear and distributing food loads. (We used one as a ground sheet for 12 nights sleeping out during an end-to-end trip on the Larapinta Trail in central Australia. With a little ground preparation and being careful when moving on the tarp it suffered no damage at all).
Overhang Small (2m Long x 2.95m Wide)
A nice size for solo trips with your bivibag. Put it up when the rain sets in and you need to cook, use it across the face of a rock shelter for extra protection or use it as a ground sheet whenever the need arises.
