    Replacement for AHE Shangri La Tarp

    My AHE Shangri La tarp served me well for 9 years. Last week a tieout and whole corner of the tarp tore off in a crazy storm up in Quetico PP.
    This tarp is no longer listed on their website. I'd like to replace it with something similar - I loved the cat cuts and the innovation asym design where the tarp was wider at the shoulders and narrower towards the foot end. It was lightweight, but I never got wet despite being in some doozy storms.

    Anybody know where I might find a Shangri La type tarp?

    Thanks in Advance! I used to participate frequently in HF, but been away for probably a decade or so, and I'm not really up on who makes what these days.

    I donít know about that exact shape, but I think if you asked Jared at Simply Light Designs, he might be able to come up with something. Iíve never done a custom job with him, but I know he does custom work.

    Have you tried reaching out to AHE? I looked at their site, and under Tarp Accessories they had this note:

    Sorry, but we are working to source a new fabric as due to EPA regulations our fabric mill lost their silicone coating partners. They will be posted back to the store when we have a suitable fabric option available.

    I've got one of his hammocks, but didn't think about him for tarps. Good idea!

    I did not see that, thanks. Yes, worth a try.

    If you don't have any other spare tarps the HG hex tarp is pretty affordable at $105. Whenever they do their sales, it's usually 15-20% off if you can wait til then. Good luck sourcing a replacement...I did some quick research on it (didn't click your YT link) and ran across your YT video. Interesting design...looks like it was silnylon. Maybe you can get it in silpoly and shave off an ounce or two.

    At the risk of suggesting the obvious, why not reach out to Paul at Arrowhead and ask him? They offer custom work, and I'd be surprised if he doesn't still have the pattern.
