STD Overhang

Wilderness Equipment

Engineered tarps for shelter in every season. This economy range of Overhangs uses our regular 75 denier, waterproof, polyester tent fabric. The tensile design engineering and construction quality incorporated in all our Overhangs are world leading. Carefully cut panels, non-stretch, reinforced ridges and perimeters and our original design tear-drop guycord pockets combine with construction details to deliver the best-pitching and strongest tarps available. If you need group shelter or sun shade, enjoy the airy openness of fly camping or simply do stuff outdoors in all weathers, one of these Overhangs is for you.

About the STD Overhang

All sizes in the Overhang range feature a reinforced ridge seam and simple, fully-catenary-cut fabric panels either side of this main seam. The guys attach to the tarp fabric body via our unique design, tear-drop shaped, reinforced, double-layer patches that incorporate pockets into which guy cords can be stashed. These patches that distributes stress into the fabric panels better than any other simple reinforcement system. You can have confidence that your Overhang will resist high winds and, thanks to the guy cord pocket feature, it won't come out of its stuff sac a hopeless tangle of cords!

The standard 75d polyester tent fabric is the economical fabric choice for a shelter expected to perform in a wide range of conditions but where weight is not so critical and the added advantages of a silicone coating (UV protection to fine denier yarns and slipperiness to snow) are not important requirements. A well cared for and maintained standard 75d Overhang will give many years of reliable service.

The ridge seam and mid-panel guy points on the standard Overhangs are factory seam sealed.

(Be warned: In Australia, as elsewhere, respect for original design IP is pretty thin on the ground. Our guy attachment design has been copied and we advise you not to purchase these copies. The reason is not that we are precious about our technically informed inventiveness but that the tarps we have seen not only use the dodgiest fabric but are also REALLY BADLY made - just what you would expect at the price).

Overhang Large (4.5m long × 2.95 wide)

This is the Overhang for Outdoor Education groups and commercial operators. It's also the one if you going lightweight with all the family or a group of friends. The large Overhang makes an ideal cooking or field meeting shelter. It's big enough to work effectively pitched up a little higher. A favorite in Tasmania.

Overhang Medium (3m long × 2.95m wide)

The medium size Overhang is a good compromise for small groups use or a family of four. Pitch it low if it's windy. Fill in one end with your packs. Weight down one point to collect water. Use it as a big ground sheet for packing up on, organising gear and distributing food loads.

Overhang Small (2m long × 2.95m wide)

A nice size for solo trips with your bivibag. Put it up when the rain sets in and you need to cook, use it across the face of a rock shelter for extra protection or use it as a ground sheet whenever the need arises.
