Note: the picture of the HEX tarp with awing is for reference only. The final product of the HEX will not be coming in Camo.
The REFLECT HEX G2 Series of tarps are were specifically designed by thinking a little outside of the normal box. I wanted a reflective tarp as there is no reason not too have one. It works just as well in the summer as the winter.
Made out of 30d Ripstop Nylon, this tarp has a hybrid coating of silicone, PU "impregnated polyurethane", and aluminized bottom coating that brings in a whole new level of tarp options and still keeps it well in the light to carry category.
The aluminized coated fabric enhances the thermal heating / cooling ability by either blocking radiant heat by reflecting it away from you in the summer time or capturing the radiant heat that is lost by you in the winter.
The REFLECT HEX has 14 outside reinforced tie outs. The HEX is 14'.9*8'3 for the main body and comes with a detachable awing the zips onto the main body with a water resistant zipper. This doubles as a reflective solo tarp, blanket, under quilt, ground sheet, or even a improvised poncho, that is 7'2*4'9 in size.
Each end of the REFLECT HEX incorporates extra material with a snap system to provide better coverage on the ridge ends.
Note: there is two variants of this tarp, the only difference is the HT version uses the reflective breathable Hybrid Textile for the Awning. The standard version is the same reflective 30d nylon that is used on the main body of the HEX tarp.
The REFLECT HEX is designed to be a light weight innovative tarp that will keep you dry and cooler in the summer, or hotter in the winter.
The REFLECT HEX has many functions. A few are listed below.
- As a traditional hex tarp
- As a thermal blanket
- Super shelter
- Ground cover
- Hammock cover
- Many more options with the solo tarp
