AquaQuest Safari Tarp Takes Honours for Best Tarp

Safari Tarp Shelter

We’re not ones to brag but our Safari 10 x 10 tarp was recently named best tarp by the folks at The Prepared! To add to the excitement, they also dubbed our heavy-duty Defender tarp the “gold standard survival tarp by which all others are measured”.

The Prepared spent 53 hours researching over 50 tarps and field testing their top picks. When testing the tarps they focused on the many factors that make these bushcraft tarps suitable for emergency evacuation kits, also known as “bug out bags”. 

One of the most important items in your kit is a tarp. They are packable, lightweight, and can be used for many different needs. Shelter, water collection, cloaking device, cool-looking cape—a good tarp can do it all! 

Here’s a quick breakdown of why our tarps are worthy of being The Prepared’s top picks.
