A good old tarp, courtesy of the US Marine Corps. MARPAT camouflaged and reversible to Coyote Tan, made of strong Nylon, and can even be buttoned to other tarps or itself. Used, very heavily used indeed.

The USMC reversible tarp is a rectangular piece of waterproof ripstop-reinforced Nylon, with a total of 8 grommets on the edges for your field setup fantasies. On each side, there's also a row of plastic snap fasteners to attach more tarps, or just fold the one you have. You can build anything ranging from a two-person shelter to a hobo village out of these. Apparently "real" tents weren't the right thing for the Marines, so they just like the way it sucks under these tarps. However the center seam is off-center, so the tarp won't leak straight on the manly face of the resident.

Measures 200 x 220 cm (79" x 87"), weighs 950 grams (2 lb 1.5 oz).

Usage

Although ironically the modern USMC tarp is just a bit bigger than the old Soviet Plash-Palatka, you can make virtually anything out of it. A basic trick is to rig one or two corners to a tree and stake the rest to the ground, making a simple lean-to. By attaching two or more together you can make all kinds of tent-like accommodation solutions.

The tarp can also be snapped up to form a tube to work as a waterproof bivy cover for your sleeping bag. When you tie in a Woobie, you'll get a lightweight sleeping bag. By using creative ways with the snaps you can conjure up all kinds of rain capes and body bags or whatever, it's amazing. As with most American made gear, the snaps are super tight - to operate, you'll need fingers that have witnessed a thousand battles.

Used USMC stuff

These are very heavily used, so you can encounter rips or tears as long as your finger, or a broken snap. We have divided these into two grades to help you with shopping:

Grade 1 may have one up to a fist-sized tear and possibly smaller ones, too.

Grade 2 tarp has a hole bigger than a fist or several fist-sized holes.

Fortunately, these are relatively simple pieces of equipment, so many of the tears can be repaired easily, especially as the ripstop reinforcing halts the tear from spreading and keeps it clean and straight. The easiest way to patch it up is duct tape, but a pro gets a tarp patch kit, unfortunately not available from us.

Oma tuli tänään matkahuollolla eikä luvattuja nyrkinkokoisia reikiä ollut ainuttakaan.
Pieniä reikiä (nuppineulan pää) oli muutama jotka parsin umpeen ja sinetöin saksalaisella panssariteipillä.
Ei myöskään haise polttoöljylle tai homeelle. Haju tuo ennemmin mieleen karamellin makeutusaineen.
Maastokuvio ei myöskään ole haalistunut.
Nepparit kaikki ehjiä ja toimii.

Olenko saanut upseerin käyttämän yksilön vai mikä on, mutta erittäin tyytyväinen olen

Kombotin hankinnan Savotan naamiointiteipin kanssa, jota ei lopuksi metriä pidempää pätkää tarvinnut käyttää. Pahimmat patrioottisubstanssit ym. aivonesteet piti kuitenkin nyrkkipyykätä (kylmällä) pois ennen kuin rättiä kehtasi reppuun änkeä.

Vielä käsittelyaineella hifistelemällä lopputulos on yhtä vedenpitävä, uhrattavissa ja kasaan parsittavissa kuin yhdysvaltain merijalkaväen sotilas.

Hankin tuotteen maavaatteeksi suojaamaan ilmapatjaa ja makuupussia, kun kankaan napittaa kiinni sisälle mahtuu hyvin patja ja makuupussi joten taivasalla voi nukkua huonossakin säässä.
Omasta kankaasta puuttuu 2kpl nepparia ja pieni epeämä reunassa, mutta molemmat korjattavissa kotikonstein.
Tuoksu oli kyllä etova mutta pesin tuotteen pesukoneessa 30 asteen pesussu ja hyvä tuli.
Ostin särmä TST kuivasäkin 5l johon kangas mahtuu mukavasti aivan kuin olisi sille suunniteltu, suojaa kassissa sitten muita varusteita jos kangas on likainen/märkä. Painoa ei kerry liikaa ja menee pieneen tilaan.

Ihan ookoo tuote hintaisekseen, mutta koiranpaskan haju ei lähtenyt ensimmäisessä pesussa. Nyt on liotus menossa.

The Grade 1 did not have any tears in it. However, it is riddled with small holes like from a shotgun. You can't see them till you hold it up to the sunlight. Should be easy enough to fix with sealer, one hole at a time. We were warned.

Ostin suoraan kaksi kappaletta ja toisessa oli yksi lyijykynän paksuinen reikä ja toisessa olikin nuppineulan kokoisia reikiä siellä täällä mutta ei haittaa menoa ku samaan tilaukseen otin paikkuutarroja 2 pakettia koska tiesi että kuitenkin tarvii. Haju oli kyllä melkonen "vapauden" tuoksuksi mutta kun pesi molemmat erikseen 30 asteessa käsinpesu ohjelmalla ni tuoksuu kuin uudelta. Kummassakaan ei ollut maastokuviointi haalistunut ja molemmisa oli kumilenksut mukana. Jos ymmärtää että voi paikkuu hommiin joutua niin vahva suositus

Mine smelled like a mix between dog shit and tobacco, was riddled with small pin-sized holes, and a couple of ' almost ' rips. gave it a hand wash, fixed the latter with tape and glue, and the first with Tent Sure. Haven't tested it out and about yet, but the smell is just the tobacco now...guess that'll keep the bugs away :)
It now resides in one of my panniers of my motorcycle ( why I bought one - to cam-up my ride when snoozing all stealthy... ). Did hate the fact that I didn't buy two, but the price is the reason why I didn't, also why I knocked of a star.

Stinky (in a not unpleasant way) and a bit sticky (coyote tan side) and with lots of tiny holes- they would have probably caused a trickle to run down inside the tarp rather than a torrent to run through. The holes were partailly marked from some sort of inspection but many more discovered when pitched against the sunlight. Sealed with Gear Aid tape but disappointingly have not been rained on yet. Washed which helped the pungency to an extent and dusted with powder to reduce the stickiness- not sure how long that will last.

WARNING: the studs around the edges are vicious bastards (on an equal rating with Lego) with a misguided bare foot.

I dont understand why the price for a fucked up used marine tarp is so damn high?

Probably because of import costs from the US (they are pretty awful). But I doubt it's worth it. We can get quality tarps in Europe anyway. I mean, Marpat is nice but...

I think that this is one of the few readily available sources of waterproof Marpat material. Some USA-based sellers on ebay, but the price is not that different taking into account the shipping across the atlantic. Maybe this should be both in the "Tarps and shelter halves" section and in the "DIY->Materials" section.
Also, I would buy a Jämä apron in marpat cammo. It is a cool pattern.
