Onyx Tarp Carbon

Crazylight minimalist tarp featuring an Easton® carbon-fiber poles and Dyneema® Composite Fabrics

If your goal for shelter is to have a high performance, ultra-technical, ghostly lightweight tarp, then the Onyx Carbon with Dyneema® is your best choice. With a 6oz trail weight made up of Dyneema® Composite Fabrics (an extremely strong and dynamic fiber)--that is also 100% rainproof and highly tear resistant--this tarp is the perfect shelter for bikepackers, packrafters, and ultralight backpackers needing overhead coverage to the lightest degree. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, this tarp is not indestructible and requires careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.

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.

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

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.
