Tarp or Poly?


You talked.  We listened.  You mentioned that the tarp makes noise when you move in your sleep, so we came up with a with a 1-person poly floor version.  The poly is the same material as the roof.  It is also 5oz. lighter and not as bulky as the tarp.  So if you’re using the net to lay on a smooth and soft surface, like a (air-)mattress or carpet, then you should go with the poly floor.  But if you’re using the net to lay on a camping cot or on the ground, then get the tarp.  Otherwise, both 1-person nets are identical and both protect against bedbugs.

  1. this helps a lot with deciding which Sansbug to purchase. Thank you!

    1. You’re very welcome! Do let us know how it worked out.

  2. Is poly or tarp floor a better protection against spiders that might crawl under the tent? Is one heavier material and better protection against biting through? I will use this on a bed. We have biting spiders!

    1. The tarp is heavier than the poly and offers better protection against biting through. Let us know how it works out!
