I haven’t used the tarp yet, but I will be definitely next spring/summer for a sun shade when I’m doing my outdoor activities. -1 star for the bag the tarp comes in being ripped along the stitching for the zipper.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention and we're sorry that the zipper on the carry bag ripped. Expect an email from us shortly so we can make things right!
I used these on top of my 12' x 18' camping tent. I was at the Texas Coast, PINS for ten days. If you have never been to the south Texas coast in the summer it is hot and windy. The Arcturus reflective canvas blankets held up great the entire time. Well wort the money.
Tarp arrived in just a few days. Exactly as advertised. Great. But, as advertised, it is for emergency purposes and not regular use. The reflective mylar has worn away at friction points after just a few uses as a "pup tent".
Thanks for bringing this to our attention! The reflective layer should not be wearing away like that so we'll be contacting you shortly to send a replacement.
I have both sizes but being 6’-3” the smaller size is just a little too small. This one does the job. Good size to provide shelter for me and my bag. It is a little bulky but such is life when you are big and tall
I have not yet opened the package as I bought three of these for Xmas gifts. Grandpa Prepper, that's me. However, I can tell just by examining the material through the packaging that this is a substantial and tough item. Thanks, Arcturus, this is just what I wanted!
