The Romanian Plash-Palatka is very similar to the Soviet original - now available in blue! These old-school shelter halves are getting rarer by the day, so get yours now before they are gone forever!

This versatile age-old multi-blanket can be used as a groundsheet, shelter half, rain/camouflage cape, stretchers, or a top layer for sleeping bag/blanket. In almost every use it's just a tad too small on its own, part of the rugged charm! You can also wrap it around your blanket, sleeping bag, or all your worldly possessions and tie the bundle on your backpack. This way the contents are quite protected from radioactive rain and other elements.

Where have all the capes gone?

The Plash is the king of capes! When it's used as a cape, one corner works as the hood - note the drawcords that you use to shape the hood and collar on your shoulder. Then, fold the opposite corner inside and button it up (the buttonholes on the corner line up with the toggle buttons on the center of the tarp).

Now you can button up the front as little or as much as you like. With the more open approach, you look like a heroic elf lord. And if you button it up more tightly, you resemble more of a sad cone creature but you are better shielded from exciting weather phenomena.

When worn as a cape, you might notice that there are actual pockets (!!!) under the armholes on the inside. You can stash something nice in them, perhaps a golden ring that you found in some cavern inside a mountain?

Exciting details and differences

These have been made for a long time so the details can naturally vary. No picking and choosing!

  • Measures approx. 175 x 175 cm (69" x 69")
  • Weight approx. 1,4 kg (3.1 lbs)
  • The shade is "Swedish Army Dress Blue".
  • Brass sail rings or fabric reinforcements in each corner.
  • Varying drawcords with a matte or shiny surface.
  • No other exciting details, the product is perfect.

The shape, color, and material of the toggle buttons are also a bit different. Some are made of wood, some are plastic.<

Material

Made from very tightly woven and impregnated wind- and water-resistant cotton. The fabric seems even denser than on the Soviet equivalent.

When you have wandered the realm long enough to wear off the water-repellent treatment, you can use fabric wax! to reproof it!

Romanian army surplus

Most of these are in totally unissued condition, but we reserve the right to say that some examples may well be just slightly used. These might have some insect repellent treatment that might be hazardous to cats! We do not know for sure but consider yourselves warned.

Even though it may first look like that there are plenty of these, the availability is quite poor. So, we cannot promise a restock once these are gone. Act fast before these are sold to somebody you don’t like.
