Product description

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.

Thermal insulation
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 (0, 7 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.

BUSHMEN Thermo–Tarp can also be used as a large, comfortable hammock of the “banana type”, 2 m. broad, and 3 m. long, or a hammock with shelter from wind and rain.

The unique construction of the BUSHMEN Thermo-Tarp makes it not only a practical and light camping shelter. Depending on the situation, it can also turn into a practical blanket, a mattress to sleep on or a full bed, or even a stretcher. It can also be utilized as a thermal reflector. It’s a good solution while drying out clothes for example. Of course it can be used as a signal blanket in an emergency situation.

14 loops and bands paced strategically divide the tarp into 2 parts with various ways of utilization:

The carry-all part, where most loops and bands are grouped, aimed for hammock, a stretcher or other purposes where larger weights are to be carried.

The roofing part – the part without bands and seams (apart from edges), is meant for roofing purposes.

The whole tarp can be put in a sack, roomy enough to put an unfolded tarp. With careful folding, the tarp takes very little space – the dimensions are barely 24x16x6 cm. Thus it can be put in the flap of even a small backpack.

Technical data:

  • Dimensions 2×3 m
  • Weight 700 g
  • 14 loops water-resistance 3000 mm
  • Breathable
  • Static hardiness of the hammock space is 70 kg

The tarp itself is a functional unit that works well and fits well in the bag. So far, with little user experience, there is nothing good to say about tarpaulin and the number of fastening loops. When buying, please note that the package contains only 10m of rope, which almost completely goes into a rope rope, ie you have to get your own ropes for edge fastenings.

Maybe not the lightest protective covers, but a functional and carefully made set of good materials. Withstands wind and frost well, the fastening loops and sewing seams have also withstood mechanical stress without breaking despite repeated wetting and freezing, at least for the time being. That heat reflector feels like a good invention, for example, the heat radiation of a campfire can be comfortably directed to the necessary objects, and when a cold surprises, wrapping in a blanket is not a waste. The aluminum-like coating seems to stick well to the fabric, with no signs of flaking or the like. The only thing I would address with a small charge is the repeated use of the tarp as an independent, it may not last longer without being damaged and losing its properties. I think it’s a good travel trip, especially for colder weather.

The product falls well below the promised dimensions (191x287) is not suitable for independent use!
