This DVD will give you the confidence to erect the perfect taught tarp in no time at all!

The 50 minute DVD introduces you to the three main configurations, the A-Frame, the Lean-To and the Flying-V, before explaining clearly how to hank cordage to keep it neat in camp.

Then we look at the six most useful, easy to remember knots, all shown in close up and in real time, which makes it simple to follow. Finally each tarp is erected live with hints and tips explained on each configuration so you'll able to erect your next tarp efficiently and with confidence.

The DVD has been produced by us and explains all you need to know to get the most from using a tarp. It is also useful for people with non-rectangular tarps, to ensure they use the right knots to keep the tarp taught and quiet during any windy night.

Customer comments;

Received the 'Tarp DVD' this morning (many thanks) I was facinated by the amount of information portrayed so clearly and concisely. (Wish I'd had some of the information when serving Queen and Country - it would have made the basha(ing) a whole lot more comfortable and easy). The knots were great and also explained well. R Creasey

Definitely worth the wait, and just shy of 50 minutes we have what is at the moment the most comprehensive video on tarps and related knots out there. Production quality is good and the content first class. It'll make my tarp trips so much easier. D Christie

The good folks at BPL, Rose & Bob, included this DVD with my order (which happened to contain a Tarp among a lot of things, and I'm SUPER HAPPY, because I was too cheap 😱 and it really gave you everything needed to quickly hit the ground running in "Tarp country"!

It's very basic, but on the other hand, that actually what's needed, because if you're a Tarp connoisseur, you probably know this, so the focus of first some knots & configurations is excellent!

The first trick is how to manage excess line when packing down your Tarp (or tent).

After searching the Internet I found that even a lot of experienced Tarp users don't know this basic knowledge, instead the have rubber band, small bags etc. just because they lack the skills.

Interesting, so probably then even a lot of regular Tarp users can find this "movie" very useful!

Price wise: On a cold, rainy, windy day when you're struggling with your knots and tangled lines, I guess there will be a lot willing to spend in excess of 100, so to say the least, it the CHEAPEST bit of "equipment" you can buy, as a bonus it won't weigh down your backpack

Suggestion: send me a code with the DVD so that I can watch it from the forest when things go haywire; PLEASE!!
