A good quality canvas tarp is an important tool for any outdoors activity.
From survival to hauling yard debris they are hard to beat.
I got a chance to test out the Whiteduck Heavy Duty Canvas Tarp and this is how it did.

I requested the easier to pack 7’x 9′ olive drab color canvas tarp for review. Folded up this size would be packable easier to a backcountry location.
First off I was amazed by the heavy duty stitching and attachment points.
There are even reflective panels on the corners so when out camping you don’t trip over the corners at night (well, that’s my idea at least).
The heavy duty construction is very impressive. As you can see from the other side of the corners, this canvas tarp is made to last.
Check out up close the stitching on the sides of the heavy duty grommet.
The heavy duty build is very impressive and will take whatever you or mother nature can throw at it.
The material is very heavy duty and repels water very well during testing. Rigged up as a tube tent or a multiple of other variations it makes a very strong shelter against the elements.
After reviewing the Whiteduck Cotton Canvas Tarp I can honestly say this tough tarp is ready for any adventure. This one now lives in my Jeep and finds daily use for camping, hauling gear (and game), and even the mundane tasks of yard work on the property. It has earned its position as the jack of all trades for any job. Be sure to head over to the Whiteduck website and check out this great product among others on their website.
