Many people choose not to seam seal their tarps but for the maximum level of waterproofing we recommend any tarp be treated along the center seam. The recommended sealer for this tarp is our Fast Cure Seam Sealant found on the line/shelter accessories page. You simply apply a thin even coat along the center seam being sure to cover all of the exposed threads/folds in the fabric and let stand overnight to dry. This works best when you seal the outside layer of the tarp and should be done with the seam under mild tension such as when the tarp is in an A-frame configuration.
Made in the USA. All OCP items are Berry Amendment Compliant and a letter is available upon request to US Government and Military organizations.

It's been a great tarp. I previously had a coyote and liked the utility enough to purchase a multicam to replace the other. Plenty of tie outs so I end up rotating it 90 degrees and use the 2nd and 4th ridge line as tie-outs on the side to lift the sides out and open the space more. The price is pretty good ($142 at time of review). To make your own you would need 7 yards which runs $14.95 currently at ripstopbytheroll, $105 total (not including shipping). For the tie outs they use tan 499 grosgrain webbing, which you can get at rockywoods online and do with about 3 yards at $0.69 each, and thread for around $9. All said and done the materials add up to around $115 so paying for less than $30 in labor costs is a really great deal. Don't hesitate, buy now! Bonus if you're active duty and need the IR compatibility.
Amazing tarp. Tie it up any way you like with the multiple tie out points. Have a small fire under a plough point or a hefty fire a meter away. I've had dozens of fires under/near this tarp and never had a single issue with an ember creating a hole.
Best tarp I have ever used! Strong material and so many tie out points. Highly recommended.
I thought long and hard before puchasing this tarp. To be frank, $160 is alot of money for a tarp. I am so glad I made this purchase. On a recent camping trip, it was raining slightly while we setup our tent. Afterwards we went to go get a load of firewood for our stay. the rain start increasing. By the time we made it back to camp, it was a full blow torrential downpour. The temp had dropped about 15 degrees. I grabbed the tarp and a roll of paracord. My lovely wife helped me rig up the tarp between some trees. Without the tarp, our trip would have sucked. Now we had a nice dry place to hang out, cook and relax without getting soaked. For those of you on the fence, pull the trigger and make your purchase. Best $160 I have ever spent. I will definitely be buying another one.
I used the Multicam tarp as a traditional Tarp Tent in the snow, the heat and light from the fire was reflected into the space quite nicely by the reflective coating on the tarp. The reinforcing on the anchor points and overall quality of the tarp are excellent.
