The versatile, ultra-lightweight UST All Weather Tarp can be used as a ground cloth, single person sleeping shelter, gear protection, and even as thermal protection in emergencies. The four-sided, flame-retardant tarp’s reverse side is aluminized for wrapping around yourself for thermal insulation and reflectivity for emergency signaling.
It sets up in minutes with the included guy lines and steel stakes, and instructions are conveniently located on the exterior of the stuff sack. The All Weather Tarp measures 8 x 6 feet and weighs 15 ounces. It packs down to 8.5 x 4 x 4 inches in the included stuff sack. It’s backed by a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty.
When compared to a Grabber blanket is is a little smaller but this has tie outs and this sets up to a smaller plow point. Chris feels that it being smaller makes it better for a plow point because it helps hold in the body heat better. Chris also feels that this should be used mainly as an overhead cover but seeing as it is smaller it could also make a great ground cloth if you are using a grabber blanket for your overhead cover.
