It is about 8' on a side, and 2 sides have "slots" where the tarp material has been folded over, as if some sort of pole is supposed to pass through them. In the center is a very solid looking hook arrangement. The material seems to be of a much better quality than any tarp. It appears to be professionally made for some definite purpose.
