I bought a paratarp to throw in my pack to serve as a temporary shelter during mid-day breaks, to ward off sudden rainstorms and for occasional overnight bivies on my western hunts. I use a 6-person Kifaru tepee as my camp on pack in bowhunts. Though I haven't hunted with it yet, I've set it up and sealed the seams. Just the right size for my purposes, very quick and easy to set up with metal pegs or sticks. Of course, it's extremely light and takes up very little space. It will be in my pack come fall. I have no doubt it will perform as intended, just as my Kifaru tepee does.
7/23/2013 -- What material are these tarps made from? It looks exceptionally light and weather resistant, but I am rather worried about . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: The material is ultra high tenacity nylon. It is not "fireproof"; it won't actually burst into flame but it will melt if exposed to flame or actually touches stovepipe. Keep stove a few inches away from fabric and pipe around two and you'll be fine. If you build an open fire in the vicinity of the Tarp make it downwind. Patrick
