The Summit 4-Season Hammock Tarp
Like our 3-season hammock tarp, the Summit 4-season hammock tarp is made of 1.1 oz sq/yd Silpoly. Why is this important? When wet, polyester stretches less than nylon, keeping it taut if you plan on camping during some nasty weather.
After all, that’s what our hammock tarps and other hammock camping gear is about—giving you a comfortable and efficient way of camping even in rough, nasty camping conditions.
Summit tarps utilize a flat-felled / French seam for durability & strength.
With a 400 d ripstop sewn into each corner and connecting material along the entire length of the tarp’s frame, this durable hammock tarp will remain steady and provide shelter even in some of the windiest conditions you’ll encounter.
With highly durable tieout material, this hammock tarp will remain locked in place.
You only need 4 stakes to keep the hammock tarp locked in place, as the tieout rope for the doors are long enough to share the corner stakes.
Unlike the 3-season tarp, the 4-season tarp has doors on each end composed of two overlapping layers leaving a small area at the top for ventilation. These layers are held closed using line lock clips connected to the corner stakes via the rope—opening them is as easy as tilting back the line lock to allow for some slack.
- Ridgeline length of 12′,

- Dry space is roughly 6.5′ by 7.5′ at average height setup,
- Side tie-out points feature Line-Loc 3’s with Beastie Dee rings,
- Door clips on all 4 doors,
- 23oz in weight.
The 4-season hammock tarp features an optional continuous ridgeline consisting of grey Lash-It 1.75mm, Loop Alien Titanium Micro Hook spliced on the end, two continuous loops of grey Lash-It 1.75mm, and a Loop Alien Titanium RCA at the other end.
This makes for an easy set up centering of the hammock tarp.
*Note- Tarps do not come with the seams factory-sealed. You will need to use a seam sealer made specifically for silicone coated fabrics. We recommend Seam Grip+SIL from Gear Aid.
Handcrafted For Each Order
Our hammock tarps are made by hammock campers for hammock campers. We use a CAD program to get the most durability with the lightest material possible, giving you a hammock tarp that’s easy to transport and set up, but will also resist some of the nastiest weather you’ll encounter.
Whether it’s high wind, rain, snow, or sleet, you can expect to be protected from the elements under the safety of our 4-season hammock tarp.
