What is Tarp?

Category : Information
Tarps, from the word tarpaulin,is a large sheet with strong, flexible, water-resistant material such as canvas or polyester with urethane, or plastics such as polyethylene. Usualy traps is used to make a tent, or temporary shelter from wind, rain or sunlight. They are often used when inexpensive water resistant material is needed, such as to cover a pool or hot tub. In military slang, tarps are sometimes known as "hootchies." This term derived from the Japanese word "uchi," meaning house.


In general tarpaulin can be categorized into 2 types : 

  1. Polypropylene
    A polypropylene tarp ("poly tarp") is not a traditional fabric, but rather a laminate of woven and sheet material. These type of tarpaulins can last for years exposed to the elements, but non-UV treated material will quickly become brittle and lose strength and water resistance if exposed to sunlight.
  2. Perforated tarpaulin
    These kind of tarp typically used for large medium advertising, or for protection on scaffoldings, the aim of the perforations (from 20% to 70%) is to reduce wind vulnerability.

A tarp is one of the best pieces of survival gear you can carry out into the field when you go for camp. It can be used for a variety of shelters and packs easily. Be it a simple blue tarp, or an expensive light weight nylon model, you can't go wrong with considering including one in your survival gear.
