“A long distance hikers Best friend! I used my Patrol Shelter most nights on the A.T. There is absolutely no wear visible and it never leaked a drop. The interesting thing about Cuben is that there is very little to no condensation. If anyone is asking themselves if Cuben is worth it… IT TOTALLY IS! Advantages: no stretch, lightest weight, stronger than steel, absorbs no water, translucent (can actually see stars through it), and it’s quieter than SilNylon or spinnaker; though probably more due to the excellent design of the Patrol Shelter.”

The Patrol Tarp is available in two sizes – solo and duo – as well as in a range of fabrics, weights, and colors to meet your outdoor (and fashion) needs.

The SilNylon version of this tarp requires seam sealing, which is why we include seam sealer with all our SilNylon shelters. You can seam seal this tarp yourself in about 30 minutes with the supplied seam sealer OR as an extra service we can do it for you!

We use a diluted 100% Silicone Sealer on the exterior stitching above the lower hem. Factory seam sealing can add about 1 week to the order process. Seam sealing adds about 1 oz | 30 gm +/- depending on the shelter size.

Factory sealed shelters are returnable under the regular return policy, where as DYI seam sealing is not.

NOTE: Cuben Fiber shelters do not need seam sealing.


COST: $50 – $60

Optionally, you can order a set of the very best Carbon Fiber tarp poles available! These poles are not just a simple pultruded, or wrapped in one direction tube, like cheaper CF poles – they are 0.355 outside diameter multi-ply, multi-direction carbon fiber construction. Tall enough for a 6+ footer to sit up under a tarp, but short enough to avoid an unstable tall wind profile.

The regular CF Tarp Poles do not fit the DUO size tarp, the DUO poles are a separate product, custom for this sized tarp. They are available as a set of 1 front and 1 rear, or individually.

This set includes:

1 x 28 in | 71 cm Carbon Fiber Rear Pole (0.95 oz | 27 gm)
1 x 42 in | 106 cm Carbon Fiber Front Pole (1.65 oz | 47 gm)


• Grommet locking tips- Easy to girth hitch guyline
• 15.5 in | 39 cm folded lengths for compactness
• Long and Strong aluminum internal ferrules with fast connect rounded end guides and tube spacer bumpers to prevent CF to CF abrasion

This product includes 40′ of our regular, non-reflective Pro Guyline in your choice of Yellow or OD Green. You can upgrade this to 50′ of 2.7 MM Reflecto Pro Guyline which has properly spaced reflective markers that are bright enough to see, without making your shelter look like that obnoxious house on your block with the out-of-control Christmas lights.

Each of our SilNylon shelters comes with one tube of McNett Sil-Net Seam Sealer. It is STRONGLY recommended you use this supplied seam sealer to seal and strengthen the seams of your shelter.**Cuben Fiber Shelters do not need seam sealed.**


1. Pitch and inspect your shelter for any issues. Once it is seam sealed, it is non-returnable except for significant defects.
2. Use the supplied SilNet Sealer and ONLY the SilNet Sealer. (If you want to dilute it or use some other silicone sealant it should work OK and is common (research this yourself online) but, you are on your own- results may vary and are not covered by warranty! If you go this route, it is assumed you know 100% what you are doing and have done it before!!!)
3. Pitch the shelter tightly. Temperatures should be above 60 F and humidity below 80%. You may do this indoors. You may also do one seam at a time indoors if the seam is stretched slightly. Pinning one seam from each end on the floor between two heavy objects works OK.
4. We use the SilNet straight from the tube. Do not make a big hole in the sealer tube – start small so that you can control flow. Multiple small application is a lot better than one big smear.
5. Main Seams: Place a small bead on the seam along the stitching. Work on a 3’- 4’ section at a time. Use a finger to press the sealer into the stitching and the small valley at the edge of the seam where it is rolled under.


NOTE: You only need to seal the OUTSIDE of the shelter. You do not need to seal the bottom perimeter roller edge stitching. It is OK to add a small bead on the leading edge of the triangle tie-outs reinforcement stitching, but it is not required.

SPECIAL AREAS: Add a little sealer to any tie-out stitching on the middle of a panel (Mids, Cricket, and SuperTarps). Seal the zipper storm flap stitching and tie-outs on the Mids. Seal the stitching and apex tie-outs areas on the Mids, Crickets, and TrailStars.

IMPORTANT: Do no go back and forth over the wet seam too much – after a minute or three it will get gummy and look bad; it is better to wait for 8 hrs and then add some over any area you missed.

    I love this tarp! It protects a lot more than you’d anticipate. I’ve stayed perfectly dry under pouring rain. You have to pitch the tarp a little bit lower which makes getting in and out a slightly more difficult, but it’s not an RV you’re going in and out of all day, it’s shelter for the night. Plus, with that low weight, it’s hard to beat.
