Stockage Tips
Storage: after use or cleaning, do not store the tarp until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Maintenance Tips
1 CLEANING - if needed, the tarp can be cleaned using soapy water, then rinsed (with a hose if possible). Then leave to dry completely. 2 TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store the tarp until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Great Tarp. But not perfect.
Used for 1 week or less
The tarp itself is excellent. Looks great in white and all pole/rope mounting points are reinforced very well. However after just one night of use (albeit in heavy rain) one of the guylines have started fraying and bunching up making it tricky to slide the guylines runners /adjusters over them. Still recommended but some improvement needed. It recommend ordering some better quality 4mm guy line in a fluorescent colour as the grey ones included are hard to see when camped on grass.
Well made
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Have only used the poles at the moment, for holding the door of our family tent open. I'm sure that we will have plenty of use for it next summer.
Versatile useful tent addition
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Useful for csmping in Europe both with rain and sun. Could do with one additional pole if available
Versatile and Quality Tarp
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
An excellent quality tarp, including guy ropes, multiple attachment eyes and 2 x Aluminium poles and Aluminium tent pegs.

We used it to provide a shade and rain awning in front of the main tent, worked well, and versatile, as we also used it to provide a temporary sleeping shelter.
Good value!
Used for 1 week or less
Great value for money. Bought this in case we needed extra shade on a French campsite this week. Attached it to the camper van via the ropes (plus a couple of strong magnets). Did the job fine. Could maybe have done with a couple more poles, but we were happy enough with it.
Hot tub perfect
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought this, having looked at other more expensive options. Thrilled with this. Perfect size for over the hot tub. Used a ridge line without poles. Nice and light and bright neutral colour. Fabulous!
Bought for the beach
Used for 1 week or less
I hesitate to give five stars because we haven’t had chance to put it up yet - weird that we bought as a sun shade and it hasn’t stopped raining since it arrived!!
It arrived in good time and within timeframe.
Still good after 4 years
Used for More than 2 years
We are still using this tarp and still loving it. We've had almost unbearable heat here in the UK this past week and we were camping in a field with no shade. Friends with an Outwell shelter found it too hot to sit under but ours really made a cooler spot to sit with a breeze to help. I'd recommend this tarp to anyone - lightweight, cool, strong and easily adjusted to block out bright sun at different times of day.
Great shade
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
We are currently using this in our garden to provide some extra shade. We will soon use it up our campings in France. It’s certainly cooler than being in the direct sunlight. It’s tricky to put up alone
Fresh Tarp
Used for 1 week or less
Used over a very hot weekend, helped to keep sun off the back of my van by adding a second pair of poles so one in each corner to create more shade for the dogs! Improved it further by changing the grey guy ropes for bright orange ones - less of a trip hazard!!!
