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.
Can also be used asa ground sheet
The medium size Overhang is a good compromise for small groups of 2 to 3 use or a family of four. Pitch it low if it's windy. Fill in one end with your packs. Weight down one point to collect water. Use it as a big ground sheet for packing up on, organising gear and distributing food loads.
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.

My review of Wilderness Equipment Medium OverhangBy: Richard Wong on 26 August 2015Just tested out this tarp on the weekend, like always Wilderness Equipment does not disappoint. Packs small (and easily back into its cover) and the guy line pouches are very innovative. Guy line locks which aren't advertised make it very easy to adjust/lock lengths. Made of durable materials. Only complaint would be fluro/bright coloured guy-lines would have been better rather than black, however it is reflective.
