Review Title: Pendragon

WOW! The quality of the Pendragon Tarp blew me away. I expected the tarp to be excellent having seen one in use before, but the stuff sacks are equally river-tough. Piping along ALL the seams will keep the main stuff sack and the stake/strap bag from blowing out. Rarely do you see that attention to detail these days. Set-up was as easy as possible around rocks , large diameter ponderosa pines and clumps of willow/alder. Makes me wonder why I hadn't thought of using straps before. We used the fly to cover both the kitchen and the seating area on a recent Middle Fork Salmon trip and it was a pleasure to have so much room. We had 9'6 oars for the ridge and used 8' oars from a small raft for one of the sides to keep good head room and have good views of the river and mountains beyond the drip-line. With the amount of surface area on the tarps we were able to fill our jerry cans with water after half an hour of rain (capturing the water in large pots off the corners). I can't say enough good things. Thank you!

Review Title: Dragon Fly Haku For the Win!

Picked this up for a Sprinter 144" High roof. Love how simple it is to pack away but provides so many great options for adjusting to provide privacy, rain shelter and blocking the sun. It's a bit intimidating putting a few holes in the roof but as long as you use the lap sealant you should have no issues. This is a much easier solution that a large awning the when you don't need it the aluminum track is barely viewable. The material seems top notch and the poles are extra beefy. I would not hesitate to recommend this as a great option for the van life folks.

Review Title: GREAT tarp!

Just received my awning extension tarp in an incredibly short turn around from order date and got it set up. Going to be a game changer for foul weather camping. Well engineered to be versatile, rugged materials, quick intuitive setup. Well suited to my Fiamma80s.

Thanks Dragonfly!!

Review Title: Best solution out there

I love our new Haku tarp! I had been looking into options for months and trying to find an awning that could block the sun and withstand strong winds in the Columbia Gorge where we live. I considered many options but I couldn't be happier with our Dragon Fly Tarp. The design makes so much sense and it can be packed away in a small bundle when not in use. I especially like how the rain doesn't enter our van since one side of the tarp is connected directly to the van with the provided aluminum channel. Also, the color options are fun because you can combine them any way you choose. I selected a gray tarp with black patches and blue trim. It looks slick on our gray Ford Transit van!

Review Title: Top Design, Quality Construction and Terrific Service

We purchased a custom Haku Tarp earlier this year and couldn't be happier. The tarp performs perfectly, the fit and finish is superb and the service was timely and outstanding. Love this tarp. Yes a bit pricey some would say, but you pay for great design and a quality product. There is an old saying.. you get what you pay for.....this one is the best! Thanks to every one at Dragonfly who helped to put the finishing touch on our van. AND they ship to Canada!

We love Dragonfly Tarps!  We are incredible impressed with the construction and design of the tarps.

They are durable and built to be used in harsh conditions and we have definitely put it to the test.

We have used our tarp on river trips and camping trips and have loved the protection and shade it provides.

We really like the cam buckles that are used for tie downs.

They make the tarp very easy to rig in a hurry.

We could not be happier with our tarp!

We’ve had our tarp built by Dragonfly Tarps for about ten years and it has held up for 6 Grand Canyon raft trips, twice that many Middle Fork of the Salmon and two Lower Gorges of the Main Salmon trips, as well as many other multi-day trips.

It is remarkably easy to set up using either our raft oars with extensions we bought for that very reason or with standard composite military surplus stacking tent poles for when we’re in situations other than river trips.

It sets up easily with standard 1 inch cam straps and ground stakes.

For setting up in sand we often use a deadman (log or other such device buried in the sand about 2 feet deep), but only on days when we expect strong winds. Otherwise, the stakes provided with the tarp work well enough in sand.

The material is rugged and we’ve just recently re-waterproofed it with spray-on waterproofing and seam waterproofing compound.

Our large tarp is 18′ x 25′ and we also have a smaller Dragonfly Tarp, measuring 15′ square, that we often use for shade on our Grand Canyon trips, at lunchtime.

Both tarps set up easily & quickly and they come down just as easily and quickly.

In addition to our tarps we have a custom-built rain fly that fits over our 17 1/2 foot raft so we can convert the raft to a solid surface and sleep on it, even when rain threatens.

Like the tarps, the rainfly attaches directly to our raft with cam straps.

Often, other rafters who see our rainfly and tarps stop by to ask us about them.  They are very visually impressive and I’ve given out the contact information for Dragonfly Tarps many times, on rivers, to people expressing an interest.

All of they tarps that we’ve bought from Dragonfly Tarps are of exceptionally high quality in both material and workmanship.

I can’t possibly recommend their products any more highly.

I bought the large Pendragon tarp from dragonfly tarps in the Spring of 2018, and I was amazed at the high quality of the tarp, the seams, the accessories and the ease of putting it up and taking it down.

I ordered through their website, and it was very easy. I was able to specify what colors I wanted, uploaded my company's logo, and also bought their custom poles.

After ordering I had a small question, and Matt (the owner) answered me immediately (no receptionist or "press 1" to get to someone). He clarified it to me with no problem at all. Thisnis what I call great customer service!

Everything came in in a very timely manner, considering that everything about it was custom - colors, logo, etc.

I thought it would/might be hard to put it up, but is was extremely easy. I did it on my own, and it took less than 5 minutes. Wow!

And, the size is phenomenal - it's the largest I was  able to find anywhere.

Since we got it, I took it on a few of our outdoor excursions. On one of them, we were hit with very high winds. Everything blew away, but the dragonfly tarp stayed put, as if the weather did not bother it at all. Obviously, after the wind slowed down, everyone else in the site came to see, admire and inquire about where I got the tarp. I was very happy to give them dragonfly's information and website.

Oh, I'm also considering calling them next month, to order a custom tarp for my camper. I've been saving for it, and I'll be placing my order next month. I can't wait to get it and use it during our next trip.
