The essence of a tarp.
We have left only what is really necessary for the tarp. It’s one of the lightest multifunction tarps on the market.
Weight: only 340g.
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.
You can find more setup ideas in our tarpology.
Everything is ULTRA here – we have paid attention to use even an ultra-light cord stopper.
It weighs less than 0,5g – we have checked – exactly 0,4831g!
What is important – when packed, the tarp just takes up space of 1l bottle!
ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 2×3 / dark olive 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.
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.
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.
ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 2×3 / dark olive – Tensioning system
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.
Tensioning cords are a kind of fuse additionally.
They keep the safety of the use of the tarp. It is ensured by a suspension system built with tensioning cords.
They are designed to absorb any stresses arising during use. In the situation that the stresses or forces acting on the tarp are bigger, than those provided by the manufacturer, the cord slips out of the hook.
This is the alarm signal and the intended way to protect the tarp from damage.
In this way, the plastic hooks on the ends of the tensioners act as fuses.
Slipping the end of the cord back into the hook is trivial.
Lift the flap on the top of the hook. Slide the end of the cord into the gap formed between the flap and the main part of the hook, and close the flap.
Don’t let the end of the tensioner slip off the hook. It means that the forces acting on the hook are too high and can cause damage. Slipping out of the hook that is not covered by the warranty.
To keep the warranty, all included tensioners must be used when pitching the tarp.
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.
