That is cheap ..!! We have a Vango tarp that was three times the cost , we probably paid for the name  :shrug:

Tarps are a great add on if you have a smallish tent and take up very little room wrapped up .

That may be useful for those who enjoy camping in the rain :icon_wink:

that's a good price, I paid double that from Decathlon, also I'm a big fan of Coleman products, they have never let me down.

It was a good bargain.
I've bought one, seems tidy quality.

Coleman stuff isn't a premium product but they are good for the money you pay.

It'll have a wait a week of so before I get chance to test it.

I think it's the price it should be! (MAX!)

A rectangular bit of plastic, nylon 'bloke' ropes, a pole and (four?) pegs. Made in China no doubt.......... :whistle:
