As for the performance, the military-grade cotton fabric is strong and breathable. It's resistant to water and mildew, and it also features a good heft for use resisting wind as a shelter. The size is perfect for a lot of general and emergency uses, so if you prefer canvas tarps, this is a good one to keep at the ready.
When choosing canvas tarps, you should know that they are not recommended for car or boat covers. Fabricated using colored dye and waterproofing wax, canvas tarps can stain and rub off any painted surface they come into contact with.
Because canvas is not strong enough to withstand the pulling force from wind generated while in transit, canvas tarps also should not be used as trailer tarps.
Any applications that require excessive pulling on the grommets of the fabric will not be suited to canvas tarps, as they do not have the high tensile strength required for extreme pull force. Vinyl tarps are ideal for applications that need tarps that will stand up to such force. Canvas tarps are not advised to be used even temporary side walls, divider curtains or canopy tops.
An important distinction for canvas tarps is that they are water-resistant, but not waterproof. When the material's saturation point is met, and it will leak through. It won't provide dry shelter or protection if in constant contact with water, such as rain.
Water-repellent agents made from petroleum byproducts, such as those used with treated canvas tarps, will leave a strong odor. That is why you should not use canvas tarps indoors. However, the odor will dissipate as the material is exposed to air outdoors.
Because the canvas fabric is made with 100% cotton fibers, the tarp will shrink over time. The amount of shrinkage to expect relies on environmental conditions, whether that's weather, sun exposure or humidity.
