Product description
If you are fed up with every unnecessary gram you need to carry with you, Ultralight Tarp 3×3 is a real gain for you. It’s one of the absolutely lightest on the market full-size (3mx3m) tarp. It weighs only 480g (just tarp)!

It works well as an element of ultralight equipment for a walker, as well as a bicycle tourist, canoeist, etc. Generally, if you are an outdoor enthusiast, this is absolutely the equipment for you. When it is packed, the tarp takes very little space – as much as 1l bottle.

Can be pitched in many ways due to the convenient layout of the loop. It provides convenience and protection in every situation. Using the surroundings (trees, rocks, depressions) and trekking poles, paddles, bicycles, or just sticks, you can create a great tent perfectly adjusted to the location and weather. In extremely bad weather, you can create an “assault tent” in a few moments. Such a shelter fully insulates both from the ground and from every other side. Excellent protection when using a hammock (e.g. BushBed™ hammock). It can be used, for example, as a roof covering to protect against rain and wind.

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’s important – the set includes 6 cords with unique tensioners. 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, in which the tarp is put, 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. In addition, 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 20 x 10 x 10 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 immunity up to 3500mm H2O
  • There are 16 characteristic loops arranged around and 3 through the middle of the tarp. This is what the tarp should have :-)
  • The middle sewing line and the loops are reinforced and secured with special black tape. The tape is hot-welded, and therefore, it permanently bonds with the silicone layer creating a strong watertight ridge
  • This technology ensures that the tarp is fully waterproof and strengthened at this point
  • As added 6 pulling lines (3m each) with the tensioning system and a bag with transport handles

It lasted one day in use and the tarp completely tore on one side next to the seam. The importer washes his hands of the matter and appeals to a user error. From Varuste.net, you get answers to your e-mail about every week. About four weeks have now passed in handling the complaint case. The matter goes to the consumer representative next. The quality of the product is really questionable. Two of these have already torn (in the other one, the ripstop prevented the tear from growing). The lashing lines bang in the wind, and modifying/changing them or not using them seems to invalidate the entire tarp's warranty. I can't recommend the store or the product anymore.

The tarp seems surprisingly durable considering the strength of the material, and withstands wind loads well. The packing bag is tight, I doubt that the fabric won't fit comfortably in the terrain when it's wet. The strings and other accessories are in any case in a separate mesh bag. By the way, there are enough attachment points, but it would be convenient if the fabric had a few more loops in the middle in the style of a group member.

After using it for a year on several trips, it works very well and doesn't weigh much. I haven't used it on the ground as a base, and maybe I wouldn't, because it's a rather weak material.

The strap is in good condition and light, the storage bag is too small. You have to fold it back with precision, which is a bit difficult in field conditions, and you have to use a separate, larger storage bag.

Not tried yet, but the size and light weight as well as the simple suspension device still result in 4 stars!

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, so in a classic A-setup you only need 4 pegs to get 8 attachment points on the tarp.

Unfortunately, this did not convince. The manufacturer's quality probably varies from time to time. In this case, the stitching was so horribly messed up that it had to be returned. The package was initially missing all the strings, but the replacement was handled nicely with the help of Varustenet.

Light and big. Good fasteners. This easily gets holes, so handle with care. Comes with excellent quick-release cords. Full marks for size and weight.
