Minimalist tarp engineered with an Easton® carbon fiber pole and Dyneema® Composite Fabric to handle the elements like no other lightweight tarp.

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is respected as the premium brand for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. This fabric is ultralight weight, 100% rainproof and has a high dimensional stability that resists stretching or sagging during temperature changes. Its unique structure creates a fabric with extremely high tear-strength and allows for welded construction, which eliminates seams and the need for seam tape, enhancing its durability and waterproofness. 

Plethora of guy-out points create multiple configuration options allowing for optimal coverage in any location 

Included Easton® carbon fiber strut pole can be inserted into laser-cut Hypalon tabs in center of tarp for increased headroom

Strut pole can also be used in place of a trekking pole along edge of tarp

72 sq ft is the approximate floor area based on the dimensions of the tarp when flat

This tarp is extremely lightweight and requires special care to increase its longevity

What’s in a Name?

Lem McAlpine lived in Hayden, CO in a tent home with his wife, Selma, and her parents while working as a teamster (horse-drawn sleigh driver). By 1906, he had partnered with a man by the name of Zick to operate the National Sawmill, a flourishing business with all the construction going on. That same year, he also purchased the Onyx Hotel, on the Steamboat proper side, for his wife to run while he maintained a few less-savory businesses on the Brooklyn side of the tracks.
