All pictures of tarp are of the Reflect 100
I have reduced the price of the Reflect series tarps due to an issue with the unreinforced edge tie outs this affects 10 edge tie out points. These tie outs will rip out under load. All other reinforced tie outs are without issue and will hold as designed. However with the side edge tie out issue, I feel obligated to let my customers know of this problem and reduce the price.
There has been three reports of these tie outs ripping, however most people have not had any issues with the unreinforced edge tie outs. I would estimate they have about a 20lb load rating as is.
I will still support any manufacturing issues EXCEPT the side edge tie outs as the price has been reduced to basically cost.
The REFLECT 100 & 120 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 20d 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 is fully taped, has 23 outside tie outs, the four corners are reinforced, the five on the ridge are reinforced and the four in the middle are also reinforced. There is also 2 tie outs on the inside ridge under the "2nd and 4th tie out position" that are reinforced. The HH or "hydrostatic head" pressure rating for this tarp is 1800mm. Currently the REFLECT comes in two sizes the 120 witch is a 9'7*12 and the 100 that is a 9'7*9'7. 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
