Features




"Saskatchewan - three days of rain (out of 6...) The tarp was a real life
saver - and all the guys on the trip commented on it. It allowed us to
have a decent and dry break over lunch times, irrespective of the
weather." - Coenraad P.



• Classic Style Square or Rectangle Tarp. Many tarp users prefer a non-shaped tarp with no curves in the ridgeline. This is a "flat cut" tarp. Shaped tarps, like our Grace Tarps, are used primarally in the A-Frame pitch. A flat tarp can be pitched in many variations. In an "A Frame" pitch a flat tarp uses more guy lines and stakes to achieve a tight pitch

Pictures show various methods of pitching the 10' X 10' SuperTarp.

• Tieouts: 27, includes two side panel tieouts per side and three tie outs along the ridge line.
• 10' X 10' SilNylon Size of 8.6' X 10' Cuben sizes offers a LOT of coverage over a hammock for good winter protection.
• All perimeter tieouts have LineLocs for fast pitching. LineLocs can be removed to save 1 ounce.
• 3 inside ridgeline gear hang loops
• Front/Rear ridgeline tieouts with tarp pole tip grommets.
• SilNylon ridgeline is triple rolled and tripple stitched for maximum strength.
• Great as a Group or Scout Cook Tarp for canoeing, backpacking and as a group day hike safety backup plan.


MLD Pro SilNylon Seam Sealing
We send seam sealer with all our silnylon shelters.
You can do it yourself in about 30min with the supplied seam sealer
OR as an extra service we can do it for you!
Seam sealing adds about 1oz/ 30gms +/- depending on the shelter size.
Factory sealed shelters are returnable under the regular return policy.
DYI seam sealing is not.
We use a diluted 100% Silicone Sealer on the exterior stitching above the lower hem.
Factory seam sealing can add about 1 week to the order process.

***Cuben Shelters Do Not Need Seam Sealing***


Included


• Silnylon Stuff Sack
• 60' Guyline
• 1.5oz Tube McNett Silnet seam sealer


Seam Sealing Instructions



How to a Seam Seal an MLD Pro Silnylon Shelter

(Cuben Fiber Shelters do not need seam sealing.)

1: Pitch and inspect your shelter for any issues. Once it is seam sealed it is non returnable except for significant defects.

2: Use the supplied SilNet and only the SilNet. (If you want to dilute it or use some other silicone sealant it should work OK and is common (research this yourself online) but your are on your own- results may vary and are not covered by warranty - if you go this route it is assumed you know 100% what you are doing and have done it before!!!)

3: Pitch the shelter tightly. Temps should be above 60 F and humidity below 80%. You may do this indoors. You may also do one seam at a time indoors if the seem is stretched slightly. Pinning one seam from each end on the floor between two heavy objects works OK.

4: We use the SilNet straight from the tube. Do not make a big hole in the sealer tube - start small so you can control flow. Multiple small application is a lot better than one big smear.

5: Main Seams: Place a small bead on the seam along the stitching. Work on a 3’- 4’ section at a time. Use a finger to press the sealer into the stitching and the small valley at the edge of the seam where it is rolled under.

ALLOW AT LEAST 24HRS TO FULLY DRY.

NOTE: You only need to seal the OUTSIDE of the shelter ONLY. You do not need to seal the bottom perimeter roller edge stitching. It is OK to add a small bead on the leading edge of the triangle tieouts reinforcement stitching, but it is not required.

SPECIAL AREAS: Add a little sealer to any tieout stitching on the middle of a panel (Mids, Cricket and SuperTarps). Seal the zipper storm flap stitching and tieouts on the Mids. Seal the stitching and apex tieouts areas on the Mids, Crickets and TrailStars.

IMPORTANT: Do no go back and forth over the wet seam too much - after a minute or three it will get gummy and look bad. Better to wait 8 hrs and then OK to add some over any area you missed.
