BUSHMEN Thermo-Tarp

BUSHMEN Thermo-Tarp 3×2 is the latest, stronger version of a water-resistant lifesaving tarp with an insulating layer. It has been well received by buyers. Now the tarp is made of an exceptionally foldable, light, water resistant, and, very important, breathing material with a ripstop weave.


Thermal insulation

The top side colour is dark olive. It easily absorbs heat and masks well.
On the other side, the material is covered with a thermal insulation layer, which increases thermal comfort.
The silver cover of the other side perfectly reflects body heat while maintaining thermal comfort, e.g. during cold nights. Its reflective surface also allows to use lighting more effectively.
On hot days, it reflects the sun’s rays significantly lowering the temperature under the tarp.


Specially designed loops are much easier to use than the classic ones.

The characteristic clearance between the loop tapes not only makes it easier to work in difficult conditions, but also allows the tape to better fit around the lashings.
An inconspicuous change in the construction of the loop also allows to distribute forces better/wider acting on the tarp material. For this reason, we could resign from sewn reinforcements on the sides without losing strength. The loops on the corners are the most exposed to overloading, therefore we left traditional reinforcements, thanks to which our tarps are even stronger.

14 loops and bands paced strategically divide the tarp into 2 parts with various ways of utilization:

Carry-all part, where most loops and bands are grouped, aimed for hammock, a stretcher or other purposes where larger weights are to be carried.

The roofing part – the part without bands and seams (apart from edges), is meant for roofing purposes.


Thanks to reinforcments and well placed loops, the tarp can be set up in many different ways. It secures comfort and shelter in any situation.

By using the surroundings (trees, rocks and depressions) and trekking poles, oars or simply sturdy sticks, we can create an excellent tent, well-adjusted to a given place and type of weather.

In many situations, the Thermo-tarp is far superior to the traditional tent. With its low weight (0, 7 kg), the shelter provides you with far bigger space than a tent of the same weight. It can provide comfortable sleeping space even for three persons.

Bad wether

Under extremely bad weather conditions you can make a “storm tent” in a short while. A shelter provided is fully insulating, both from the ground and all sides.  Thermal conductivity of the tarp is close to 40 times lower than that of the sand, and almost 20 times lower than that of the grass.  It provides full protection from hypothermia, rainfall and the wind. BUSHMEN tarp leaves enough space to lie down or sit, waiting for the weather to change.

Good Weather

On warmer days, setting the shelter up with the insulating side upmost, secures pleasant shadow, protecting from overheating.

In everyday use, e.g. while vacationing with the family; the tarp can be used to create a breezy roof in front of the tent or as a felt bathroom curtain. Lied over the tent, thermal side up, the BUSHMEN Thermo –Tarp protects from overheating inside the tent. It leaves you to sleep longer on hot mornings.

BUSHMEN Thermo–Tarp can also be used as a large, comfortable hammock of the “banana type”, 2 m. broad, and 3 m. long, or a hammock with shelter from wind and rain.

The unique construction of the BUSHMEN Thermo-Tarp makes it not only a practical and light camping shelter. Depending on the situation, it can also turn into a practical blanket, a mattress to sleep on or a full bed, or even a stretcher. It can also be utilized as a thermal reflector. It’s a good solution while drying out clothes for example. Of course it can be used as a signal blanket in an emergency situation.

Whole tarp can be put in a bag. Similarly to all BUSHMEN Travel Gear tarps, this one is also packed into a practical bag with transporting handles located on the bottom and along the bag. With careful folding, the tarp takes very little space – the dimensions are barely 24x12x12 cm. Thus it can be put in the flap of even a small backpack.
