Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could give any recommendations on tarps in terms of what characteristics are best. For example what materials, coatings, waterproof ratings, etc. are good to look out for when purchasing a tarp. There seem to be lots of options out there, so if anyone has experience using these products it would be great to hear your experiences with what works well for you or what doesn't work so well.

Personally I want something that is reliably waterproof (in moderate or even heavy weather), and is durable. I am not overly concerned about the weight (within reason), and am willing to carry a heavier tarp if necessary.

Appreciate any replies.
