Verified Reviews for Clear Tarp with Gutter Edge for Walk in Run – 9ftBack to Product
Good Solution - David,
Wanted to cover one end of the chicken run to keep it dry but not exclude any light as well as stop any droppings from wild birds in the tree overhead. This was the solution. It's not completely smooth plastic although it should improve with pressure from the securing clips and time.

Good quality cover - An Omleteer,
Bought to add to the others we already had to cover over the hen run completely and to give weather shelter from the prevailing wind and rains. Our girls are now in a nicer environment even though restricted to a smaller area due to the avian flu problems and at least they can still get out of the henhouse. Easy to use and fix on to the omlet run with two people on it.

Good Quality but could be improved - Lynne, Gloucestershire,
The plastic is great quality and the bungee hooks that attach the cover to run. The ridge on one length needs to be warmed by the sun to lay flat and the cover does need quite a large overlap to ensure of no leakages. To have one that is 4 meters would be better. I wish Omlet had one large cover that would cover the whole roof and one side at the very least. Instead, we've had to buy several covers and try and do some kind of tetras to work out the best way of not letting in the weather.

Meh - An Omleteer,
I bought this thinking it would be better sized than the tarps I could find which were never the right dimensions to fit over my Omlet 9x9 walk-in run (either too big or too small). Thinking I would need 3 (3' x 3 = 9' coverage), I find out that I actually need 4 because they need to be overlapped a bit. With only 3, I have a gap on the front or back of the run. Furthermore, the "gutter edge" was bent and mishapen due to how it was packaged, and is impossible to get to lay flat. Perhaps once it warms up, the sun will soften it and I could get it to lay flat, but for now, in the winter when I need it the most, it's not working out great, even months after I installed it. There's also only grommets on the short sides, making it hard to secure all around in my windy area. I constantly have to go out and adjust them. I should have just bought some clear vinyl fabric and made my own cover.

Omlet Says: Hi, Thank you for your feedback. It has been passed on to our Product Design team and will be reviewed for future improvements. Like you said, the gutter edge should soften with time and get flatter. Nonetheless, if you are still experiencing issues, don't hesitate to send us an email with photos so that we can investigate further about this. Yours, Omlet Customer Service team
good quality - Jenny,
We bought this a few weeks ago. excellent quality. Wish we had ordered enough to cover all the run. Will get additional ones when they are back in stock. 4 metre ones would have been the icing on the cake though.

Sturdy - worth the extra money. - Abi,
Although for the size these covers are pricey they are well worth it. The plastic is much more durable and tough compared to many tarpaulin you can get. The gutters are also a great feature and the rain runs right off them well. They’ve so far stood up to frost and snow well and suspect like all other Omlet products I have had will last many many years. My only issue I have with these is connecting them next to the side covers. I would like to put them over the top however this is difficult and therefore the rain runs down the inside of the side covers into the run. If Omlet can let me know a neat trick to avoid this it would be fab. I will certainly be slowly investing in more for the run, especially for next years inevitable ‘flock down’ due to avian influenza.

Great versatile weather protection - Maria, Illinois,
As fall has moved into the Midwest, our hens have really appreciated the wind breaks and the rain protection. It’s super easy to put up and adjust. In the summer, I’ll swap these out for some shade protection.

Could be better - Angela,
Firstly the ridged edge makes it difficult to straighten each sheet and takes several days of warm temperature to make full use of the width due to the number of stubborn wrinkles. As another reviewer mentioned if you have a run that's 3mx3m or larger it will need a large number of sheets to cover the roof as each sheet needs to be overlapped to avoid seepage and therefore each sheet ends up with not much width and the length just about covers the roof from one side to the other leaving the sides exposed. This ends up very costly. You are then left with a large number of elastic bungees criss crossing one another to secure each sheet which looks messy. To be honest we wished we had purchased a larger clear tarpaulin.
