And I can now also attest to its ability to be used as an emergency blanket. We had torrential rain mid-day this weekend with a temp drop on an exposed mountainside. When i was soaked to the bone i used it to warm myself up, and then get changed under to get out of wet clothes. Then I set it up and was able to stay dry and warm for the night.
hammock campers: The tarp is split into thirds along its longest edge. I used it so that the length of my hammock was going with the shortest edge so i had a little cooking area to the right of my hammock. Not a bad configuration I stayed dry with a good raining even though the very tips of my hammock were sticking out and got a little wet (see the photo). In a really heavy rain I would split the tarp in half along the longest edge to fully cover my hammock, like another reviewer did. It doesnt have loops for this, but you can buy tarp clamps to do it. Other than that, just get a seam sealer, and this is a flawless tarp.
Tips from experience:
Seal it before use.
test configurations before you use it on the trail
Having read all the review here, I felt this would be a good piece of equipment to bring along. Once the tarp was delivered, I sealed all the seams as there had been some reports of leakage. Out on the river, there were heat indices of 110 during our trip, but when we stopped, we didn't have to hide from the sun. Everything went well until our last night when an unexpected severe thunderstorm swept over our camp with just a minute's warning.
We were all barefoot, in shorts and no shirts as it had been hot and humid all day. And when the storm hit we dived into the tents. Winds later reported to be 60 mph battered us, bending my friend's aluminum dome tent rods. Meanwhile, my son and I kept our hands outside holding on to the flapping rain fly on our tent so it wouldn't blow away.
Needless to say, we and everything in the tent were soaked. When a brief respite came from the lightening, torrential rain and wind, I scampered outside to secure the rain fly and then tossed on the BASE Tube Tarp over it and tied it down, with the silver side facing down. The next wave of downpours failed to pass through the tarp.
More importantly, once the storm had passed, the heat reflecting side of the tarp did reflect our body heat. We had no sleeping bags or blankets, yet managed to stay warm while my friend and his son in their tent endured a night of sleepless shivering.
This will be the first piece of equipment I pack each time I go camping.
I have used this in the rain and wind and I have had zero leaks so far. It has held up when ever I have used it. The ropes attached to the tarp are fairly long and can reach many distances. I used this to hang over my hammock when I want some shade from the sun and it was a great thing to add onto my hammock setup. You can configure this in many ways to how you like it and adjust many different tensions and lengths on the rope.
I would highly recommend this for a hammock setup and for this price it's hard to beat
