Lifesaving tarp with an insulating layer. Bushmen Thermo-Tarp is strong, water-resistant lifesaving tarp with an insulating layer. Now the tarp is made of a light, water-resistant, and, very important, breathing material with a ripstop weave.
The tarp is made of an exceptionally foldable, light, water resistant, and, very important, breathing material with a ripstop weave.
The material is lined with a thermal insulating layer, securing an improved thermal comfort. The upper side is of dark olive color, easily heat absorbing and providing good camouflage.
Thanks to strengthening tapes and well placed loops, the tarp can be set up in many different ways. It secures comfort and shelter in any situation.
By using the surroundings (trees, rocks and depressions) and trekking poles, oars or simply sturdy sticks, we can create an excellent tent, well-adjusted to a given place and type of weather.
In many situations, the Thermo-tarp is far superior to the traditional tent. With its low weight (1.1 kg), the shelter provides you with far bigger space than a tent of the same weight. It can provide comfortable sleeping space even for three persons.
Under extremely bad weather conditions you can make a “storm tent” in a short while. A shelter provided is fully insulating, both from the ground and all sides. Thermal conductivity of the tarp is close to 40 times lower than that of the sand, and almost 20 times lower than that of the grass. It provides full protection from hypothermia, rainfall and the wind. BUSHMEN tarp leaves enough space to lie down or sit, waiting for the weather to change.
On warmer days, setting the shelter up with the insulating side upmost, secures pleasant shadow, protecting from overheating.
In everyday use, e.g. while vacationing with the family; the tarp can be used to create a breezy roof in front of the tent or as a felt bathroom curtain. Lied over the tent, thermal side up, the BUSHMEN Thermo –Tarp protects from overheating inside the tent. It leaves you to sleep longer on hot mornings.
