Product description

The essence of a tarp! Weight just 340g, 13 fixing points, 100% waterproof, unique tensioning system. All in 1l transportation sack.

Only what is really necessary for the tarp. It’s one of the lightest multifunction tarps on the market. Thanks to the cleverly placed loops and a unique tensioning system, the tarp can be set up in many different ways. It secures comfort and shelter in any situation. Using the natural environment (trees, rocks, holes in the ground) or walking sticks, paddles, or bicycles, you can make a shelter that perfectly protects you in any weather.

Can be used as wind & rain shelter while hammocking, of course (e.g. with our ultralight hammock). Thanks to this, it works well as an element of ultralight equipment for a walker, as well as a bicycle tourist, canoeist, fisherman, etc. Generally, if you are an outdoor enthusiast, this is the equipment you definitely need. What is important – when packed, the tarp just takes up space of 1l bottle!

Specially designed loops are much easier to use than classic ones. The characteristic clearance between the loop tapes not only makes it easier to work in difficult conditions but also allows the tape to better fit around the lashings. An inconspicuous change in the construction of the loop also allows for better/wider distribution forces acting on the tarp edges. For this reason, we could resign from sewn reinforcements on the sides without losing strength. The loops on the corners are the most exposed to overloading. Therefore we left traditional reinforcements, thanks to which our tarps are even stronger.

What is important – the tarp set includes a unique tensioning system: 6 cords with tensioner hooks. For this reason, the correct tarp tensioning is quite simple and can be done directly at the tarp loops. The tensioners are fastened to the loops currently in use simply by hooking them on the loop. The loops and the tensioners are matched to each other. Having hooked, the tensioner holds perfectly. This solution allows using the tensioners where they are needed and are not an unnecessary tarp load. To attach the pullers, simply select the cable on the tensioner to obtain the desired tarp tension.

The bag, of the tarp, is equipped with handles and loops. They are placed both along and on the bottom of the bag. The handles allow you to comfortably attach the tarp sack to your backpack without fear of accidentally slipping during transport. They make it easy to carry and remove from places such as a kayak’s beak or just between different luggage. Also, by interweaving the hammock’s ridgeline with the loops, the bag can be used as a convenient pocket for things that you want to have at hand. Having folded the sheet, it takes up very little space, it fits in a 1l bag. The size of 24 x 8 x 8 cm allows it to be put in the outer pocket of the backpack.

  • The tarp is sewn using 100% waterproof ultralight 15D silnylon reinforced with a micro rip-stop
  • The waterproof silicone layer provides water resistance up to 3500mm H2O
  • There are 12 characteristic loops arranged around the tarp as well as 1 loop placed in the middle of the tarp. That’s the must-have of the tarp
  • The middle sewing line and the middle loop are reinforced and secured with special black tape. The tape is hot-welded, therefore it permanently bonds with the silicone layer
  • This technology ensures full waterproofness and maximum strength of the tarp

Well made and both small pack size and lightweight. Quite easy to pack. The guy lines offers a very smart option to use only one peg to hold the tarp at two attachments points. Very useful for ultra lightweight backpacking

Well sewn, light, small when packed and with several fastenings. Can get the tarp down in the bag even when it's damp - wouldn't have done anything if it was a little bigger. The lines are good and the lens stretcher is appreciated. I understand the idea of loose lines but it doesn't suit me, always drive A-frame. Would have appreciated line pockets on the tarp to put the lines in. Satisfied with the purchase.
