The Siltarp is an extremely versatile tarp made from ultralight waterproof nylon. This 30 denier parachute ripstop nylon with silicon impregnation weighs only 1.35 oz per sq yd. It is incredibly strong and resilient. The Siltarp is designed to be used in conjunction with a bivy as a cooking or gear storage shelter. The Siltarp sets up on hiking poles, can be slung from trees or attached as an awning to a tent or hooped bivy. It offers 40 sq.ft (3.7sq.m) of coverage.
The Siltarp has 16 lightweight webbing tie loops sewn on the corners and edges, and one reinforced loop in the center. The loops facilitate the number of different set ups. The Siltarp has no seams and therefore requires no seam sealing.
