This isn’t one of those flimsy lightweight tarps that claim to have durable hardware, the Kookaburra Heavy Duty Dura Green Tarp actually has reinforced corners and is made with tough materials. It’s a great all-rounder.
Heavy Duty Moulded plastic is sewn into the corners and 3mm polypropylene rope welded around the edges. This is all teamed up with UV stabilised fabric and rust-proof aluminium eyelets at 60cm intervals… no wonder it’s got a tonne of uses!
Perfect for temporary shade, covering the trailer or kids sandpit, or as a camping groundsheet, the kookaburra Dura Green Tarp will stand up rigorous use and put up with continuous outdoor exposure.
Good quality at a great price.
We used this as a ground sheet for the swag. Great protecting the base as we camped on rough rocky ground and in sand and dirt. One little nick in it after 4 weeks use in tough terrain.
We used our tarp as a ground sheet for the tent when camping in woodlands by the Murry river. Tough enough to protected the tent floor from the sticks and rocks in amongst the foliage. good tarp.
The exact size needed for my coleman instant up4 tent. Nice and strong for rougher ground.
Good strong tarp big enough to fit over our tent. Fast delivery
Exactly as described, really good product. Quick delivery too - thanks!
Why is the size 2.44x3.05 actually not that size? Elsewhere on the same page it is listed as 2.31x2.95
The difference in size can be a little confusing... One is the 'cut' size, meaning the total size of the piece of material before it is sewn. The other is the 'finished' size, the dimensions of the fabric once the edges have been folded over and sewn. It is confusing and I'm not sure why manufacturers do this, but that is the explanation.
I have a Coleman Gold series 10 person which comes with 6 poles and a bunch of guy ropes. I want to use this tarp instead the shade protection from the tent. How many additional poles and guy ropes I need to set this 3x3m tarp up? Thanks, Felipe
If you'd like to set up this tarp as some shade over your Coleman Instant Up 10 Gold tent, I'd recommend that you purchase some seperate poles and guy ropes.
For poles we'd recommend using four of the Alloy Pole in the 230cm size from Poles Apart, as you can extend them to reach over your tent, and use them with the 3.65 x 4.88 size tarp - as that's going to best cover the dimensions with a little extra room to spare.
As for guy ropes, we'd recommend using 8 but you can always add more depending on where you're set up. Zempire make some good canvas ones that come in a pack of four which you check out here, so you could get two or three packets depending on whether you want extra to be on the safe side.
What is the UV rating of this tarp? I am choosing between this and the Oztrail camper fly, and this tarp looks like a better UV protection than the camper fly. Please confirm. How about rain?
The Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp does not have a UV rating, but it is made from UV stabilised fabric, and is silver coated to reflect light - so it should be really effective at deflecting the sun. There is no waterhead rating on this tarp, but it does say on the packaging that it is waterproof - so it should hold up in rainy conditions.
I can't confirm whether the Dura Green Tarp has a higher UV rating than the Oztrail Camper Fly as they both don't have official ratings, but I could take an educated guess and say that due to the thicker fabric, and silver coating on the Dura Green, it will be slightly more effective than the polyester of the Camper Fly.
The Camper fly doesn't have a waterhead rating, but it's made from UVtex fabric which has been given a 2000mm waterhead rating by Oztrail on their other products, so we could guess that it would be the same rating for the Camper fly.
Both will provide you with protection from rain, but the Dura Green Tarp probably has the edge for UV protection.
