Thread: Survival Tarp

  1. #1

    Default Survival Tarp

    At the Hardwoodsman Meet I had the pleasure of teaching a few classes. One of them was the multiple uses of the Survival Tarp the Bushcraft Outfitters is carrying. I was stoked to get this piece of gear about a month ago. I have taken it to the woods several times. I have decided it will be a mandatory item I will carry in my Condor all of the time.

    This is the first of 2 videos I am doing on it. It covers how to use it for:
    Emergency Bivy Bag
    Insulation bed
    Dry sack/food bag
    Stretcher
    Emergency Poncho
    It also shows my secondary shelter kit.

    I will post pics in the future.





    Here is the second installment on this neat little tarp

    Cool vid.......Was looking at these tarps, and was wondering how waterproof they are as compared to a Mil poncho?

    I got a 10x10 multicam and used it when I went camping last. It rained a little bit, but I stayed dry in my hammock.

    Great video. I can't wait to see the one with the different shelter options.

    I would say better since you don't have to mess with the hood.

    Easy way to get a free tarp - move to a hurricane prone area and FEMA will be along eventually and give a big blue tarp for free.
