Stronger tarp than Kelty Noah?

I’ve been using Kelty’s Noah 16 tarp for quite a while, and am actually on the 2nd after the first was torn apart in a storm. I‘d like to get a similar size replacement, but made of a heavier, stronger material. Anyone know of a source?

Thanks!

Check out truck tarps at E-Trailer or Semi supply shops. Army surplus may have tarps off of military equipment, which would most likely last longer than you will.

You want tuff. long lasting? Try this, I have it for my trailer and boat cover, had a hail storm that dented cars, didn't phase this stuff.

How did you manage to tear the Noah's tarp? We used a 20 footer on the Yampa in sustained 60mph winds last weekend. Sometimes we just just take it down if it's really bad.

Heavier is double-edged, as it requires more tension to set-up and to fight wind. I'm still using my "red" Noah tarp, which has become our fave beach shelter, and no signs of failure...

Interesting product. Is it water proof? I don't see it mentioned on your link.

The Kelty Noah’s tarp is 68D poly with an 800 mm coating. A 12 x 12 is $75.

I have a Unigear tarp from Amazon. It’s 210D oxford with a 3000 mm coating, 10 x 13 for $42 including lines and stakes. So stronger, more waterproof, and cheaper than the Kelty.

I love the Weanas tarp poles, out of stock at the moment but normally $32 for two on Amazon.
