Even if you’ve checked the forecast, and there’s no chance of rain at your camping spot, you may still need a tarp. Having a tarp will keep you dry if the forecast is wrong — hey, it can happen. It can also protect you from the sun and give you some privacy when you change your clothes.
While there are many tarps on the market and plenty of DIY tarp fabrics available to choose from if you’re going to make your own, you need to think about the type of coverage you want before you buy anything. If you want full coverage, you’ll probably want a winter or four-season tarp that provides the maximum protection from the weather.
When you’re choosing a tarp or DIY tarp fabric to craft our own, consider the material’s weight, versatility and durability. While you may like the coverage that a certain tarp provides, it won’t really matter if it’s too heavy to carry to your camping destination. Even if you like the way certain hammock tarp fabrics look, you won’t be so excited about their appearance if your handmade tarp starts to fray after just a few uses.
