Top 10 Tarps of 2020 Reviewed


1. B-Air Grizzly Tarps

BEST Multi-Purpose Poly Tarp

Why do you need a tarp? Is it for camping, shelter or ground cover? The B-Air Grizzly Tarps are multi-purpose covers for sheltering you from the elements, protecting boats, and shielding cars from the harmful effects of the sun. The tarps measure 6 by 8 feet and serve well as an emergency material for patching up the roof. If you are a camper, these tarps will shield you from sunlight, wind or rain. You can spread it over a pile of firewood or a wood burner to prevent them from getting soaked by rainwater.

But just how are these tarps able to perform all of that? They are made from laminated, woven polyethylene which is held together by heat-sealed seams. Essentially, the cover holds together so tightly that it is able to ward off rainwater or even snow. It comes with a set of built-in grommets, spaced in 36-inch intervals. This will come in handy when you want to securely tie down the tarps.

It is a given that the cover is waterproof. That’s how it is able to prevent rainwater, anyway. Another important attribute of these tarps is that they are mildew-proof and washable. Their lightweight nature makes them easy to carry with you on a camping trip.

BEST Thick Poly Tarp

Sometimes the color of the tarp you buy really matters. If that’s something you really care about, then this white tarp is what you should buy. There have been complaints of dark-colored tarps quickly deteriorating when left in the sun. White is a highly-reflective color, which deflects much of the sun’s energy instead of absorbing it. So, you should expect it to hold up in places where the sun seems to be hotter than average.

Unlike other tarps which are 10-mil thick or less, this particular one ranges from 11-mil to 12-mil. It is expected to last longer than some of the thinner tarps. That’s because it is a heavy-duty tarp, which can withstand more pressure than the other types.

10. Sunnydaze 6×8 Waterproof Tarp

BEST Outdoor Reversible Tarp

If you are looking for a sizeable tarp for the smallest tasks in your home, the Sunnydaze 6×8 Waterproof Tarp. From its name, it measures 6 by 8 feet, which makes it one of the smallest in this industry. It is only 5-mil thick, the thinnest you can have for a tarp. But that does not mean that it is the weakest you can have.

The polyethylene material from which it is made is rip-resistant and can last for long enough as long as you don’t subject it to heavy use. The fact that it is double-laminated serves two purposes. Firstly, it ensures maximum durability for the tarp. That’s because, before damage happens to the inner polyethylene material, it has to start with the laminated surface. Secondly, the surface is waterproof on both sides, which makes it suitable for use in rainy conditions or wet surfaces.

Did you know that both sides of this tarp work just fine? It doesn’t matter which side is on top. You get the same results. In addition to being waterproof, the tarp is also rot-resistant, mildew-resistant, mold-resistant, and UV-resistant. For a lightweight tarp for common tasks, this what you need.
