    Noah's Tarp

    Although the Kelty Noah's Tarp won't shelter two of each animal in the forest, it's certainly spacious enough to shade a couple of weary hikers from the mid-day sun and offer protection from unexpected rain showers. Whether you stretch it between two trees in an alpine meadow or utilize a couple of extended trekking poles in a sparse desert landscape, the Noah's Tarp provides versatile sun and weather protection you can count on.

    • Taped seams and tough polyester material protect you from the sun and rain
    • Multiple guyout points provide versatile set-up options
    • Guyline adjuster helps you keep the tarp taught
    • Poles not included

    Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Easy to install, and really protect you from the sun and rain.
    4/5 because poles are not included, btw, these are awesome https://www.backcountry.com/kelty-adjustable-pole

    Extra shade

      Quick shade for Dino's pool party!

      Extra shade

      Very Nice

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Well made and it seems super durable. I needed a tarp strong enough to provide overhead cover while camping and this is exactly what I was looking for. I decided to go with the 12 X 12 and it will be perfect for covering my camp kitchen and a couple of chairs.

      Great Product

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I really like this tarp and I've put it up all over Utah, in all conditions. I have the 12 and its plenty big to cover the back of the Tacoma and provide plenty of shelter to cook and kick it under. I added a few extra tie downs to mine because it can get pretty windy in Southern Utah, and the added stability is nice. Must have, and just do your self a favor and get some poles too - I have 2 and that seems to be enough

      Used tarp for hammock cover. The Noah's tarps are alittle heavier than others out there but I know I can trust them to hold up for along time

      Kelty 12

      More than enough for a camp kitchen

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I purchased the 16 X 16 to cover my camp kitchen. I set it up with 8 foot adjustable poles on the ridge-line corners and it easily sheltered our camp kitchen with room for me to stand and prepare food and cook on the stove. If anything, it might be too big for some sites--which is why I'm going to grab a 12 X 12 for tighter locations where this colossus won't fit. I have two small gripes: The stuff sack could be a tad more generous, and the the stakes it ships with are inadequate for holding a large tarp down in windy conditions. I carry a large assortment of heavy-duty stakes for my Springbar tent and awning and these secured the tarp nicely.

      More than enough for a camp kitchen

      Great protection from the sun and rain

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Kelty Noah's Tarp is a nice addition to any campsite. It can shade a table, provide a place to get out of the weather or act as a supplemental rainfly is the weather is looking really bleak. It has plenty of ways to set it up and holds up to even the strongest winds. Overall, a great product from Kelty.

      Great protection from the sun and rain

      Protection while Hammocking

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Simple and effective. easy to figure out different set up's. Still waiting to test it out in the rain and stronger winds, but on day's in the park and as a sun shade it's wonderful so far

      Nice tarp

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Seems well built. Reinforced tiedowns. Pockets built in for guylines. Packs down fairly decent for its size. Can't wait to get it out and use it.

      Here's the lowdown...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Pros:Solid tarp for the $. Stops rain and wind. Snow too if you string it tightly. Tie loops are reinforced and durable. Never had a leak.
      Cons: This isn't a light tarp but you aren't paying for a light tarp. NOT A RECTANGLE, which means it's a pain in the *expletive* to roll and stuff in your pack in a hurry. Could use a few more tie loops for windy conditions.

      This tarp is for you if you don't want to drop the cash on silnylon but still need a tough tarp that can be compressed to a fairly small size.

      Great for rafting and back yard shade

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Just returned from 5 day rafting trip on the Yampa/Green river(s). Used the tarp for lunch time stop and camp one night with no trees. Also used yesterday in back yard for family swim party. This is a BIG tarp. recommend several folks to help set up. Oars work great as poles. Wider velcro strips or 2 or 3 on the corner pockets would help keep the tie downs from falling out. Did I mention this tarp is BIG? It is perfect for river trips. Covers the whole kitchen area and more. I used carabiners to fasten the top to a center line in the back yard use. You should practice putting it up before you get to a campsite so you know what to do with no trees.

      the stakes are not sufficient for use in beach sand only, optional sand stakes would be a nice option with the pole

      Great for rafting and back yard shade

      Best tarp ever

        I love this tarp. I have been waiting for someone to make a decent 20x20 tarp, and Kelty has done it. It is light and durable, easy to set up, and there are a variety of ways it can be set up. we use it for a camping shelter, and on multiday desert river trips where wind is a problem. This tarp seems to handle the wind just fine. highly recommended.

        More like Noah's Ark! Survived the flood

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Saved our butts! Girlfriend and I had separate hammocks and used the 12ft to keep us out of the weather! Worth every penny! It comes with plenty of rope and stakes, and packs back up nicely.

        Great tarp!

          Used this for the first time on a backpacking overnight and it rained throughout the evening but i stayed dry under the 9 footer and was able to chill and cook under it. Gives you a great dry spot to pack up your tent and gear when it starts to come down. Simply pick up your freestanding tent, run underneath the tarp and pack it up. Exactly what I bought it for. Now when rain is in the forecast it won't ruin your trip! (Note:***Have a garbage bag in your backpack to put the wet tarp and wet tent fly in!!!****

          Best tarp ever

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I love love love this tarp. Multiple guy out points, attached super long ropes at two corners, and included extra ropes and stakes make this tarp versatile and easy to set up. Kept my gear, hammock, and a sitting area dry for 3 days in miserable rain last fall. Had to buy another one when green became available.

          Hi Julie, I see that you use it for hammock camping...did you get the 9' or the 12'? Thanks!

          Hey Robbie, this may be too late, but I got the 9 ft tarp for my hammock setup.
