This is a general overview of the new REFLECT g2 Series of tarps. More information and pictures coming shortly. Currently the materials are being dyed and coated. Prices TBD.
The 100 g2 will come in three colors, green, brown and camo. The hex will only come in brown.
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 and may be slightly different from what is pictured.
The REFLECT 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 REFLECT 100 g2 is fully taped, has 23 outside reinforced tie outs and 1 interior tie out. The HH or "hydrostatic head" pressure rating for this tarp is TBD ??mm. Currently the REFLECT comes in two sizes the 100 witch is a 9'4*9'4 and the HEX is TBD. The material width is dictating the width as the edges need to be cut and folded.
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 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 has many functions. A few are listed below.
- As a traditional tarp
- As a improvised thermal BIVVY
- Ground tarp shelters "dozens of possible configurations"
- Super shelter
- Ground cover
- Hammock cover
Sizes and weights TBD
Note: The REFLECT is NOT fire proof and Nylon is flammable. Always exercise extreme caution when using near any open flame or ignition source.
