Normal camping tarps have some weaknesses; grommets may tear out in heavy wind, there are never enough points to tie onto and while most people use a center pole to hold the tarp up it typically falls down when the wind picks up.
Cooke Custom Sewing’s Tundra Tarps solve these problems and incorporate several other valuable improvements in coated 1.9 oz. nylon or 1.1 oz (a 10×14′ tarp weighs 24 ounces) silconized nylon-
- Nylon tape tie loops every two feet or so along the edges and center seams
- An ingenious method of securing the center pole.
- Pockets in each corner for tie down lines.
- Four or six (!) different colors of cloth so he tarps are visible from miles across a lake.
Cooke also makes canoe packs, canoe accessories and some traditional shelters from extraordinarily lightweight cloth.
