Pros: good size
Cons: too flimsy
" Have bought one previously a few years back but the quality has gone down hill since. The material is rather thin and any slight catches to the tarpaulin when you are coveing your item to keep dry will result in a tear or at least a ladder in the material resulting in it not being waterproof.
Shame that they are not as robust as they used to be this is more like a use it once product and then get rid as its no longer any good after one or two uses

Pros: easy to cut to desired dimensions
Cons: not waterproof
" Kind of expect tarpaulin to be waterproof, that's really what it is intended to be used for.
I appreciate we've had a lot of rain in the last few weeks but this hasn't stood up to it and am disappointed. "

Pros: better than expected
Cons: no cons
" Originally purchased to cover garden furniture but used in an emergency to cover a leaking roof until I could fix the problem. Prevented water ingress, just the job for a short term fix and the furniture survived the winter under cover. Good quailty and can be relied on to do what it's made for...... "
