  1. Noahs Tarp and Adj Poles

    Have only had opportunity to set up in back yard.
    So far pleased with ease of setup. Setup free standing with poles and also with a fixed ridgeline between trees. Both setups stable even with a 5 to 7 MPH breeze.
    Added mini biners to most of the tiedown points (for future simplicity in the field). Also added 4 additional tie downs to supplement the existing 4 that are provided.
    Have the 16 and it will provide adequate shade and or rain shelter for cooking and eating.
    The 20 might be a bit cumbersome setup unless you had a big area.

  2. Just add some seam sealer or silicone spray and its worth the money and time

    I bought this tarp and like all rain fly and tarps I purchase I anticipate the possible need to add water protection.
    Reviews I found online showed that under heavy HEAVY rain this tarp will leak. So I strung in up and added a coat of silicone spray treatment to the entire tarp.

    I set it up draped off the side of my truck and down over my tent while it was pouring rain. The tarp kept me and my tent dry all weekend.

    Buy this tarp but it is not light for back packing and it is not 100% water proof unless silicone treatment is added.

  3. Nice tarps.

    I purchased the 9 and 12 for both 1-2 person outings and small group use.

    The 12 just spent a week in storms and held up nicely. The stakes are high quality, I was expecting to replace them, I don't need to.

  4. It is a good replacement for my older tarp.

    It worked well, I also like the pockets for the rope that are used to tie down the tarp. The Noah 16 works great on Jul 5th 2017

  5. Versatile, high quality product.

    I use the tarp mainly as a sun / wind shade while boating. Added some stakes that hold in sand and it stays put in 25+ mph winds. Excellent quality. on Jun 9th 2017

  6. Well Designed Noah's Tarp Hangs Above the Rest

    As a Scoutmaster with a Boy Scout troop from Woodinville, near Seattle, we see our share of rain. We bought one of these tarps for each of our patrols. These tarps are so easy to hang, with the flylines already attached and stored in four sewn-in corner pockets - this one feature probably saves you an extra 5 to 10 minutes of line wrangling every time you put it up. The 9 footer is perfect for a hammock and with the loops and grommets, you are sure to find a setup that both fits in between the two trees you are using, AND is tight like a guitar string. It is out of the box much more versatile than my Eno, and it costs less too. on May 22nd 2017

  7. Canyoneering, not

    Although the noah works well in treed and soft ground areas, it is a challenge to errect in canyon country. I have tried rocks, 7 gallon tanks and climbing chocks and always in combination without success. Free standing shelters are the way to go in southern Utah canyon country.1 on May 17th 2017

  8. Why is this called a three-season tarp?

    When they say a sleeping bag is three-season, that means it won't keep you warm enough in winter. But a tarp is not supposed to keep you warm, so what can't it handle in what season? Does it get brittle and crack in winter? Does it get soft and stretchy in the heat of summer? on Dec 29th 2016

  9. Larger than you might imagine (hammock user)

    Quality, sturdy (if a little heavy) construction. Nice product for hammock users, if you buy the smallest size. I ordered the Noah's Tarp 12 first, and it is much bigger than I imagined for some reason (my perception problem). Like large enough to cover a very large picnic area comfortably. Way too big to protect a hammock. They are a little diamond shaped, so not exactly square, but if you assume squareness and use Pythagoras, the Noah 9 is about 13' along the spine and the Noah 12 is about 17' along the spine. Hope this helps! on Dec 19th 2016

  10. 4 months of camping and I'll never trust another tarp.

    Used the Noah's 9 for 4 months of camping in snow and rain. Held up amazing. Pitching between two conifers about chest high and stake down the two remaining corners and you've got a simple, effective, lightning-fast shelter. I'm eager to try out some more Kelly products. I'll never need another tarp. on Dec 18th 2016
