The Mongrel EDT
THE MONGREL EDT - Arcadia Gear's Mongrel Element Defense Tarp is a one of a kind survival tarp designed to assist with thermoregulation in hostile environments.
MULTI PURPOSE SURVIVAL SHELTER - This 10ft x 10ft light weight tarp is undercoated with a aluminized polymer. This side reflects heat, creates a radiant barrier and can be used to signal for help.
DURABLE AND VERSATILE - 19 total reinforced webbing loops sewn into a nylon webbing around the perimeter and along the ridge line. The nylon webbing is designed to minimize stretch and reduce strain on the tarp fabric. This stress reduction design allows for a wide range of tight and sturdy shelter configurations.
WATER PROOF - Made of Polyurethane treated 90D rip stop nylon providing 20,000 mm of hydro-static resistance. Double stitched heat taped seams ensure a dry environment in all weather conditions.
LIGHTWEIGHT - Weighing only 2.75 lbs the Mongrel EDT weighs less than most ultralight tents for a fraction of the cost. This tarp packs up into a small 5" x 12" roll sack easily packed and stored away.
COLD WEATHER - Regulating body temperature is the key to surviving the elements. The thermal reflective properties of our aluminized polymer will reflect and retain radiant heat from a camp fire, candle, even your own body heat.
SIGNALING FOR RESCUE - The Mongrel EDT is a 10ft x 10ft signaling device. When Search and Rescue is needed use the aluminum side to reflect the Sun’s light toward potential rescuers. Unobstructed, the Sun's reflection can be seen from miles away.
