Water. The one thing that can completely destroy your camping time. From wet clothing in the corner of the tent to water actually leaking in through the top of the tent, water can offer a great experience while camping but it can also dampen it. So how do you protect your gear even more so than just the regular tents? With tarps. Tarps come in all shapes and sizes, can be used for just about anything and these tarps are perfect for blocking out the wind and the rain.
While most tents are great for blocking out moisture, the base of the tent is usually where the least amount of protection is. If the ground becomes wet the bottom of the tent can absorb this moisture and make you completely miserable. That is why a tarp placed under the tent as an added protective layer is a plus.
Tarps can also be used as canopies over the top of a tent, it can help protect against the wind or be used in a pinch for shelter. It really is an item that needs to be utilized whenever possible, and best of all there are all shapes and sizes of tarps for your outdoor needs.
