Engineered tarps for shelter in every season. This economy range of Overhangs uses our regular 75 denier, waterproof, polyester tent fabric. The tensile design engineering and construction quality incorporated in all our Overhangs are world leading.
Carefully cut panels, non-stretch, reinforced ridges and perimeters and our original design tear-drop guycord pockets combine with construction details to deliver the best-pitching and strongest tarps available.
If you need group shelter or sun shade, enjoy the airy openness of fly camping or simply do stuff outdoors in all weathers, one of these Overhangs is for you.

This is the Overhang for Outdoor Education groups and commercial operators. It's also the one if you going lightweight with all the family or a group of friends. The large Overhang makes an ideal cooking or field meeting shelter. It's big enough to work effectively pitched up a little higher. A favorite in Tasmania
All sizes in the Overhang range feature a reinforced ridge seam and simple, fully-catenary-cut fabric panels either side of this main seam. The guys attach to the tarp fabric body via our unique design, tear-drop shaped, reinforced, double-layer patches that incorporate pockets into which guy cords can be stashed. These patches that distributes stress into the fabric panels better than any other simple reinforcement system. You can have confidence that your Overhang will resist high winds and, thanks to the guy cord pocket feature, it won't come out of its stuff sac a hopeless tangle of cords!
The standard 75d polyester tent fabric is the economical fabric choice for a shelter expected to perform in a wide range of conditions but where weight is not so critical and the added advantages of a silicone coating (UV protection to fine denier yarns and slipperiness to snow) are not important requirements. A well cared for and maintained standard 75d Overhang will give many years of reliable service.
The ridge seam and mid-panel guy points on the standard Overhangs are factory seam sealed.

Excellent shelterBy: Susan on 21 August 2014We have only used this tarp once but it was great. We did a road trip in NSW and finished at the St Albans Folk Festival where we had a small, busy communal area for our camp set up. We set the tarp up over the entry of our tent (Mont Moondance) which gave us a great area to cook, store our chairs (small helinox chairs) and other items including firewood and a guitar. We did not need to use any extra rope as the tie downs that came with the tarp were great, really strong. The only let down is that we did have trouble getting the tarp back in the bag (extrememy tight fit) so I bought a little dry sack to replace the bag. This is no big deal for me as I am very happy with the tarp.
