For survival purposes I like the idea of a tarp. One reason is that it is very flexible in how it can be deployed, it can be flat, a fly, an “A” frame, a Forester, a lean to, a door, a wrap, or a poncho. A tent can only be  a tent really. By using a tarp I can easily adapt it to whatever situation I am in, and whatever my environment. The Tarps are square which allows many diagonal configurations and full protection in a smaller size tarp. The 7 x 7 (PST) is 10 feet diagonal and can accommodate 2 people, the 10 x 10 (PSTL) is 14 feet diagonal and can hold 4 or more people. We have come up with over 30 set ups for the PST and almost 50 for the PSTL.

New: Now available in Black SilNylon and Bright Orange Silnylon are our lightest weight PST while still retaining full tensile strength and having 4 times the tear strength.

New: Multicam Silnylon with all the benefits of Multicam in a superlite premium fabric. This is top of the line fabric in light weight and tough abrasion resistance, as well as silicone coating durability. The silicone coating is a proprietary silicone blend for ultimate all round fabric. You will probably want to upgrade tent stakes to Titanium as well 4 oz lighter (will show in the shopping cart drop down)

Our great Woodland Camo is available in two color styles, Woodland (standard) and Woodland TBO. The standard is clear coated on the underside and is 1/3rd lighter than the TBO, while just as strong. The TBO which stands for Tan Black Out coating, is a unique Tan underside coating that blocks all light transmission, nice for concealment purposes. MIL SPEC.

For those who want the PST in MARPAT, we currently have a supply of this MIL SPEC fabric on hand. It is the forest color scheme on the face side and solid coyote on the underside. The coyote makes it semi opaque, but not fully blackout. Supplies of this fabric come and go. Limited Fabric Supply

Unique Tent Stake Bag included – our stake bag also functions to attach poles to the inside of the tarp for added flexibility. Watch this video to see how “4 Tarp Set-ups Utilizing our Stake Bags” 

You can buy extra Tent Stake Bags in case you want to use more than one support pole, see below.
