This my 2nd tarp from Aqua Quest.

This my 2nd tarp from Aqua Quest. The first trip that I brought my original Aqua Quest tarp on, we got hit by long, intense thunder storm with high wind (that shifted direction multiple times) driving steep-angle torrents of rain. The poor-quality (but still not inexpensive) tarp from REI that we also had setup literally shredded apart: failing at the grommets but also just splitting a few places in the middle as well. Even though we had the AQ setup in a much less sheltered spot, higher from the ground, and under quite a bit of tension, it came through that storm (and many others) with no sign of wear. Had it not been for the AQ tarp, much of our gear would have been soaked and we would have been confined to our individual tents. Instead we where able to enjoy the storm together dry and warm under the tarp and even had a hot meal.

I usually leave mine up in the sun, wind, rain for week-long trips (only taking it down to move sites). My older model from the same company (apparently of the same material) and the one that's seen a few seasons of the use described above and is indistinguishable from the new one in terms of wear.

This tarp is not inexpensive, but it's an excellent value. IMO even if this tarp makes the difference between 1 day being miserable or pleasant , it's already more than justified it's cost (how valuable is your limited vacation time to you?).... and it will continue to do so time and time again, year after year.
Plus, considering it's size and durability, it's shockingly light and pack-able. I think they only way to beat it in terms of performance-to-weight ratio is with cuben fiber (and you'll pay 5x the price to save those few ounces.) The plethora of tie-out loops not make both getting a good initial setup as well as quick changes (when the weather shifts direction) easy, so you can have good coverage, good internal space, eliminate pooling of water/ direct run-off and have minimal buffeting. The new tarp (the one for which this review is posted) has even more tie-outs the older one.

On my last trip this year we had 2 more rainy days in middle of the week (+about 2 hrs of hard storm). But we had both tarps setup: one lower to cover the sitting area and gear and one higher to give standing room for doing work like wood and food prep. We used the tie-outs to attach then to each other at the corners and then to also create a gap in the middle to let the smoke out. Again, these tarps turned days that would have been pretty miserable into ones that where fun and productive. It's like fort-building for big-kids, but the fun factor doesn't make them any less a seriously essential piece of gear.

Great camping tarp and easy to setup

Great camping tarp and easy to setup because of many attachment loops.

This tarp is amazing!!! By far the best

This tarp is amazing!!! By far the best tarp I have ever had! Light weight and actually waterproof. The tie outs are sturdy and in all the right places. I honestly wouldn't change a thing about this tarp. The pattern blends in great with the woods of New England and the 10x7 was sufficient on the diagonal to use over a hammock. I will buy the lighter version in 10x10 next.

Overall its a well made and fairly lightweight tarp.

Overall its a well made and fairly lightweight tarp. In the supplied sack, the total weight is only 1lb 2oz on my scale. The size is awesome for solo camping. The downsides are that the materirial seems to sag more than poly coated nylon and way more than polyester. The other downside is the lack of reenforcement on the long side tie outs (the corners, top and short sides are reenforced). Pitching the tarp as a mid really stresses the middle, long side loop, but that loop is just sewn into the hem.
Overall I am tickled with the tarp. I've already used it about five times and even sheltered through a thunderstorm up in the mountains with it. If it had at least two more reenforcement patches I'd give it five stars.
