Factors To Consider Before Buying Best Tarps For Camping

Camping is a popular activity for many people. Camping can be done in many different ways, but the most common are backpacking and car camping. The best tarps for camping depends on how you camp. For backpackers, it should be lightweight, durable, easy to assemble or disassemble quickly with only one person required, versatile enough to serve multiple purposes. It is hard to choose the best tarps for camping. But if you follow these tips, it will be much easier.

Purpose

The first consideration for a tarp is the purpose behind buying it. There are different tarps for different purposes. Camping tarps need to be lightweight, compact and durable. You want a tarp that is going to provide a comfortable shelter from the elements while still being waterproof and having an easy set up since you can’t count on other people to set up your tent for you.

Size

You need to know how big your tent is before purchasing a tarp. A 10×10 foot tarp will cover most tents with ease and provide ample protection from the elements while also providing shade on hot days. You should also consider weight when choosing your size; lighter tarps are more versatile and can cover larger areas or serve as an emergency shelter in extreme weather conditions. Remember that this type of shelter will require additional guy lines or stakes to secure it in place during bad weather or high winds so make sure you have enough guy lines and stakes to secure the tarp with, this will allow you to really utilize its full capacity.

Material

There are five main types of material that tarps can be made out of: canvas, tyvek, vinyl, polyethylene and nylon. Each one has its pros and cons. Canvas is heavier, water-resistant and can last forever if cared for properly. Vinyl is lighter, easier to clean but will not last long if it gets wet over time. Polyethylene is the lightest material on the market, but it cannot hold up well in extreme weather conditions without breaking down after a couple seasons of heavy use. Nylon is lighter and easier to care for but not as water-resistant. Tyvek is the lightest material on the market and offers both wind and waterproof protection, but it is very expensive and does not last long.

Thickness

The thickness of your tarp will depend on the weight. Thinner tarps are meant for light duty with thinner material, lighter stakes and smaller guy lines. Thicker tarps are meant for heavy duty use in tough weather with thicker material, heavyweight stakes and larger guy lines.

Colors

The color of the tarp should depend on where you are planning on using it. For example, if you are planning on camping during the summer, lighter colors will be helpful so that the tarp doesn’t create additional heat underneath. If you are camping in colder weather conditions, dark colors will help to retain heat more efficiently.

The durability of a tarp- Tents are more durable than tarps, but tarps offer a lot of benefits which tents don’t provide. Tarps are less expensive and easier on your back when carrying them around, but they also tend to collect rainwater on top of them from rainstorms or from condensation from the ground sweating at temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Weather Conditions

You want to consider the weather conditions when you select your tarp. If you are camping in an area with windy weather, then you will want a tarp that is specifically designed for windy conditions. Regular tarps can be used in some cases, but they aren’t as sturdy against the wind and they may not be waterproof which defeats the purpose of using a tarp in the first place.

Manufacturer

Who makes your tarp will make a difference when you are looking for one to buy. There are companies that specialize in producing tarps, so you want to go with one of these. They have made it their goal to produce durable tarps that are meant to withstand the elements.

Weight

The weight is an important factor when considering whether or not to buy a best hammock for camping. If the best camping hammock is too heavy, it will be difficult to carry with you on your trip. Look at the weight of the hammock before making a purchase so that you know what you’re getting into.

Price

As a general rule, the lighter and smaller a tarp is, the pricier it is going to be. If you are planning no more than three or four adventures in one year with your tarp, spending too much money on a high-quality product won’t make much sense because you’ll only use it a few times. Instead, opt for something more economical that will still provide you with the benefits of your tarp.

FAQs about Best Tarps For Camping

What is the best size for camping?

The best size for camping depends on what you will need the tarp to do. If you are backpacking, then a small 2×3 tarp might be all that is needed. If you are camping with family, then a larger 10×12 tarp might be required.

What are the different types of tarps for camping purposes?

Different types of tarps have different benefits. A basic tarp is just a nylon piece of fabric that doesn’t have any additional features. It can be used for backpacking if it’s lightweight and folds up to fit in a backpack. A parachute tarp is made with tough material so that it can withstand strong winds or worse conditions. It’s also waterproof which makes it perfect for camping in the rain.

There are also tarp tents which are great if you are looking for easy set up, but they aren’t durable or waterproof like standard tarps.

How does the tarp attach to the camping mattress?

There are a couple different ways that the tarp can attach to a camping mattress, but they all have one thing in common. They use tent poles to attach the corners of the tarp to opposite sides of an air mattress or bed frame. This provides a firm base for any type of makeshift shelter from the elements and prevents it from blowing away in windy conditions.

What are some ways I can protect my tarp from UV rays?

One way to protect a tarp from the UV rays of the sun is by using a wrapper. A wrapper is a piece of fabric that goes around your tarp and protects it from UV rays when it’s in storage or if you use it for many years. Tarps also last longer if they are cared for properly. You should brush off dirt, keep it dry and away from sharp objects such as tree branches.

Can a family of four sleep under this tarp as well as two single people sleeping on both ends?

In most cases, yes, a family of four can sleep under a 10×12 tarp. It’s best if there is a little extra space around the edges to avoid drafts and cold air from seeping underneath. In this instance, it would be best for the people on either side to have their own sleeping bags rather than sharing one sleeping bag or blanket.

Conclusion

The best tarps for camping are the ones that meet your needs. That’s why it’s important to do some research before you buy one so you don’t get stuck with something that doesn’t work well in the environment where you’ll be using it most often. We hope that after reading this article, you will successfully choose the best tarps for camping.
