Excellent Tarp Review by Feb5

I've owned an Equinox Ultralite 8 x 10 for about 10 years, with multiple uses, deployed in almost every possible configuration, while backpacking, car camping, and river camping. It has performed admirably in every situation. The grommets look a little lightweight to me, but they have held up very well time after time, even when subjected to high tension.
Before the first use, I sealed every seam a silicone seam sealer. I have never used this tarp as a ground cloth, which may partially explain its longevity. Overall, it is one of the best camping items I own.

Great Tarp Review by Texan

This tarp is a great shelter that can accommodate two people for less than a pound. After many uses, my tarp is still in great condition.

Used it once, Looking for a replacement Review by Longislander

Used this once and the grommets are already tearing through the fabric. If you want a tarp go the extra mile and get one with sewn tabs instead of grommets.
