.66 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric
This canopy material choice has the same Dyneema® thread count as standard .55 oz/sqyd, but with a slightly thicker laminate that allows for a darker color or pattern to be printed on the material. The thicker laminate brings the fabric weight to .66 oz/sqyd. It blends in to nature well. It is darker, less transparent and offers more privacy. Dyneema® Composite Fabric has a bit of a sheen to it when it is new, but it dulls down significantly with some use.
This video by John Abela shows the opacity and color of the camo fabric. It adds around 1.0 ounces (30 grams) to the weight of the 8.5' x 10' Flat Tarp.
Tensile Strength: 63 lb/in (552 N/5cm)
Puncture Strength: 1.9 lb (8.5 N)
Water Resistance: 15,000 mmH₂O
Made in the USA.
Guylines are not included but are available for purchase in 50ft (15.25m) lengths here.
Based on the recommend lengths below, an 8.5' x 10' Flat Tarp would require ~92' (28m) of guyline.

Very Lightweight Tarp
I have not had the chance to put this thing through the paces but initial impressions are this tarp is solid and lightweight. This thing packs down very small. It can be stored just about anywhere in my pack. I have a sneaky feeling this is going to quickly become my favorite piece of gear when I go hunting.
Je l'est tester en bivouac impeccable
Great tarp. Works well with Hilleberg Anjan 2 mesh tent for warm weather and lightweight camping. Love craftsmanship so much I purchased Nero 38L backpack too.
I’ve use this tarp several times since I’ve purchased it. It endured heavy wind and rain and kept me dry and sheltered perfectly. The compact packing size and the weight are just unbeatable! Totally worth the prize!
This Tarp is great, extremly light. First night in rain I staid well dry. The colour is to white for my tast.
