Oilskin Tarp

This is it. The world-famous Tentsmith’s tarp. Shelter anywhere, everywhere under your own lovely oilskin tarp. Constructed of the same fabric as our Watchcoats, the oil/wax-finished long-staple cotton makes a wonderful tarp for a great early feel. The dark tan/brown fabric is 6.25 oz. per square yard. All tarps are finished with loops on all four sides and on the seam.

Tarps are available in a 8’×8′ or 10′ x 9’4″. They have one seam and are finished with a center loop. All the loops are heavy duty as they need to stand up to the constant tugging and pulling from the elements.

Note: The center extra heavy-duty reinforcement is added to all tarp purchased through Self Reliance Outfitters for those folks that might want to use the tarp as in the diamond set up.

For those who will be backpacking with their tarps, weights are listed below:

  • 8' x 8' - 4.2 pounds
  • 10′ x 9’4″ - 5.8 pounds

      Great Tarp!

      I do a lot of backpacking and am looking to get into more traditional gear, while also maintaining a low packed weight. This tarp balances that like perfectly and is also has superb craftsmanship.

      Tentsmith tentage best in the business

      Over the decades, I have used many Tentsmith ( over 38 years) tents, and tarps. This firms tentage is far an away the best made and strongest in the business. Recently the original owner retired and sold the firm to a new owner and I am glad to say that the quality has remained top shelf.
      I am a living history reenactor and use and appreciate a quality product and my new oil skin tarp (although not used as yet) appears to be made just as well as my last purchased tent and fly.
      I am looking forward to using this tarp as part of rendezvous impression camp this January 2023 at the Alifia River Rendezvous down in Florida as a Florida Frontiersmen sponsored and run event . I have a member of said club for 38 years and always recommended Tentsmirhs made product to any members or fellow reenactors.
