    I bought one of these tarps a couple of years ago. At first I was a little sceptical that it would be up to the job. I was taken in by the thin material and light weight, compared to a seemingly stronger and heavier weighted Aussie tarp. How wrong was I! My Aussie tarp has been confined to history and this one is still going strong. Still waterproof, after three years, and still performing well. I use this instead of my tent for most of my lowland/woodland camping trips. The longest I’ve used it for is 7 continuous nights in Scottish woodlands and it outperforms anything else people bring. Lightweight, (740 Grams, including lines and bag), so versatile and well made.
    I’ve made several different shelters at various times, including a tarp tent and they’ve all done the job.

    My only complaint is the lack of tapes on the fastening points, but apart from that it’s the first thing in my bag, even on single days out!

    Bought this for few reasons,reflective,uv-protection, more attachment points than regular tarps and to support Finnish handcrafts.

    Tarp is very well made and can be used many shapes, usually need few tent begs and few different length paracords. From regular tarp configuration over hammock to loue type of shape to almost closed tent type of shape. Very versatile.
    First i was bit skeptical if it holds pulls and how tight it can be tightened but with some time learned it will hold. Small package and light weight, can be packed easily to day trip, just throw it in the backpack if weather looks like it might be raining. Tested 16m/s wind and holded well and gave good cover. Packing is easy even when wet, storage pack is large enough. Setting up is fairly fast,depending on shape.

    Highly recommended!
