Stockage tips
Storage: after use or cleaning, do not store the tarp until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING - if needed, the tarp can be cleaned using soapy water, then rinsed (with a hose if possible). Then leave to dry completely. 2. TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store the tarp until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Used this multiple times while wild camping in Scotland as a shelter above my hammock. Did the job and kept me dry, it's very durable even in windy conditions. It can pack up even smaller than how it comes if you do it right. Definitely would recommend.
For the price, you just can not fault it.
Used for More than 1 year
All round, a tarp well worth the price. To everyone giving low marks for the amount of guy lines or poles being too short, I count these as bonus ancillary items and an added (quality for the price) extra. For twenty English pounds this has not failed me yet.
A great bit of kit

Used for 1 week or less
It really needs an extra guy rope half way along each edge. With the poles at full height, the structure can't really cope with any wind.
OK if not windy.
Not much use.

Worked brilliantly for what we bought it for, as an extra porch for our tent. 16 people sat under it as it rained and kept us comfy.
Easy to erect and cheap
No metal eyelets and option to buy extra poles

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I have camped for 30yrs using lots of tarps/ponchos and none have the value for money like this one, 5 days of non stop rain in the lakes and not a drop came through...I Have a £500 bivi thats not as good, FAB
Price
Big white branding across the middle
Great addition
Used for 3 to 6 months
I do wonder how I managed to camp before I bought this. I use it for wild camping and with my Bivy while biking. I also used as an additional cover for a very wet week in Wales. Great if you have hiking poles, the poles that come with it are far to heavy for hiking.
Strong, looks good, good position of ropes
Poles too heavy
Great tarp
I've used this tarp over the past few months for wild camping on my bike and it's great and takes up no room when packed up. I don't use the metal poles that comes with it, I use a hiking pole.
