Pro Level Flat Tarp | 26 Total Tie-outs!
WEIGHT: 11 – 19 oz | 340 – 570 gm | DCF – SilPoly

The SuperTarp Flat Tarp is a extra-large, full-sized, Pro Level tarp with 26 total tie-outs!! This “flat cut” tarp is available in a SilPoly classic-styled 10 x 10 square, or as an 8.5 x 10 DCF (Dyneema® Composite Fabric A.K.A. Cuben Fiber) rectangle. Custom 8X10 SilPoly also available.

Many tarp users prefer a flat, non-shaped tarp with no curves in the ridge-line. Where a shaped tarp, like our Grace Tarp, is primarily used in an A-Frame pitch, a flat tarp can be pitched in many variations. An “A Frame” pitch, can also be accomplished with a flat tarp, using more guy lines and stakes to achieve a tight pitch. Pictures show various methods of pitching the 10′ X 10′ SuperTarp.

The SuperTarp Flat Tarp, makes a great Group/ Scout cook tarp for canoeing, backpacking, and camping trips or a group day hike backup plan for inclement weather.

“Saskatchewan – three days of rain (out of 6…) The tarp was a real life saver – and all the guys on the trip commented on it. It allowed us to have a decent and dry break over lunch times, irrespective of the weather.” – COENRAAD P

The SilPoly version of this tarp requires seam sealing, which is why we include seam sealer with all our SilPoly and 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.

We STRONGLY suggest you pitch the shelter and test before a trip. Set up before a good rain or spray with a garden hose nozzle arching up in the air and down on the shelter simulating rain for at least 15min. Touch up or resealing may be needed eventually.

NOTE: DCF shelters do not need seam sealing.


COST: $60

This product includes 50′ of our regular, non-reflective Pro Guyline in your choice of Yellow or OD Green. You can upgrade this to 40′ 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 SilPoly and 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.**DCF (Dyneema® Composite Fabric A.K.A. 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.

    Used this tarp for the first time in May on the 2018 TGO Challenge. It was superb, although the weather was pretty good for that time of year. The quality of the materials and workmanship are the usual top notch standard. MLD customer service is great. I always recommend MLD to backpacking friends when looking for lightweight, well made kit that is upto the job.

    MLD Super tarp in DCF Camo finally arrived after a long, long wait. As my mother use to say if it’s worth having it’s worth waiting for. And what
    a quality product, just one niggle white tie outs on a camo tarp ? (MLD Note: They are now matching Camo!) Performance on its first night out proved this as it stood up to high winds and icy rain. Pitched low into the wind it did flap a little with sides rigged elastic guide lines.
    Weighing in at 11.35oz less than half the weight of my old 10ft x 10ft PU tarp. All snuggled up with one end wide open star gazing I soon dropped off to sleep. My pack cooking system out front I soon dozed off. Cold, cold the North wind did blow from the North. It lived up to its name and is a SuperTarp.

    A great tarp, but I’ve dropped a star because some of the tie outs are in strange positions. It’s a square tarp, but if you pitch on the diagonal (needed to pitch over an 11ft hammock), the side tie outs don’t line up and can’t be used. You can only use the centre tie out in this configuration. Not sure why, it would have been straightforward to make them line up in the diagonal. A bit of wonky stitching on mine also, hence I dropped another star. To be balanced, I’ve not seen this on my other MLD tarps although Ron confirmed if there ever were an issue it would be resolved so I sealed it and indeed no issues so far. All in all, a good tarp but not perfection.

    Pitch and Picture Perfect
    I have been using the Supertarp Duo in DCF Camo since November 2018. I has proved a great performer on the hill and in the woods. The configurations you use it in and only limited to you imagination. For wildlife photography I can set it up as my all night hide with bed roll to get the occasional nap. Helps me keep my weight down due to the photo equipment I have to carry.

    I use my silnylon 10×12′ supertarp since 2014, on average 25 days per season. The tarp is still in perfect shape, though I’ll have to refresh seams with sealant next year. Side-panel tie-out points make this tarp super-roomy even in heavy winds. Will recommend it without a reserve.
