If you’re a fan of the great outdoors and have been looking for a way to lighten your load when going for your next camping or hiking trip, then the Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp might be just what you need. This tarp not only provides you with the protection that a tent affords you, but comes with the unique benefit of being ultralight, versatile, and compact, all in one. Better still, this tarp has been designed to be able to withstand the harshest of weather conditions so you’re guaranteed to remain dry. Designed as a hybrid tarp, this product combines the best of both worlds – the toughness and resilience of a heavy duty tarp and the lightweight and compactness of a sil nylon tarp.
Perhaps the most significant feature of the tarp is the fact that it is fully waterproof. It has a hydrostatic resistance of 20,000mm, which is synonymous with the best waterproof fabrics in the world. The tarp can also be easily folded and fitted into a compact sack which makes it wonderfully portable.
The versatility of this tarp is another of its strong selling points. It comes with 19 reinforced webbing loops which give you numerous options for pegging it down. You can hook it onto a fence or a tree, name it, the options are virtually unlimited. Because of the toughness of its fabric, this tarp will also be sure to keep you warm.
This tarp comes in large (13 x 10ft), medium (10 x 7ft) or square (10 x 10ft) sizes and weighs about 1.9 pounds. When packed it measures only 30 x 14 x 6 cm making it easy to carry along. The product comes with a 2-year guarantee and a 60-day money back guarantee. With regard to colors, the Aqua Quest Safari Sil Tarp is available in olive drab or camo which are colors that complement the outdoor surroundings.
It’s almost incredible to see the number of positive reviews that this ultralight silnylon tarp has received. About 95% of all users have remarked on the durability of the tarp, specifically because of its incredibly waterproof fabric. One customer mentioned that he had had his tarp up for 2 months straight and he had barely seen any signs of wear and tear. Another customer joked that the best thing about the tarp was that he didn’t feel as though he was carrying another person; a true testament of the product’s low weight. Still, a number of customers lauded the manufacturer for producing such a high-quality product. They described the overall product as being ‘very well made’ and the workmanship as ‘high-quality construction’. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this product a rating of 5 as it lives up to the expectations set by the manufacturer.
The strongest plus point for this lightweight silnylon tarp is the fact that it is truly 100% waterproof. You and your gear are guaranteed to stay dry no matter how heavy the downpour. The downside is that it may be slightly more expensive than the other sil nylon tarp options available in the market, but that is a small price to pay for the quality you would be getting.
