ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 3x3 / dark olive
If you are fed up with every unnecessary gram you need to carry with you, ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 3×3 / dark olive is a real treat for you.
Everything is ULTRA-light here – we made sure that even the puller is ultra-light.
It weighs less than 0.5 g. We checked – exactly 0.4831g!
When it is packed, the tarp takes very little space – as much as 1l bottle.
Thanks to this, 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.
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.
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
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.
Notwithstanding the utmost care in workmanship and the safeguards used, products in an ultra-light category are inherently more delicate and require more care than other equipment.
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.
ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 3×3 / dark olive 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.
ULTRALIGHT – Tarp 3×3 / dark olive is, of course, 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.
