I purchased this tarp because it seemed like it was the only tarp available that did not have those horrible clear taped seams, I got fed up with them not lasting as the tape eventually parts company with the material it is bonded to. The abisko tarp has what I can only describe as a French seam that joins the two parts down the centre, the patches where the loops are attached are very well made and the finish is first class. They must use a very small needle when they are made. The tarp comes with six Dyneema guy lines with plastic locks and more fixing points than you will ever need, it now comes with a separate drawstring stuff sack for holding the tarp. The abisko tarp has a silicone coating and this sheds the heaviest rain with ease. The thing I really like about this tarp is the pine green colour, I put the tarp up in a woodland and walked about thirty yards away and when I looked round it had blended in with the environment perfectly. My only gripe with the tarp is that the guy lines supplied are a bit short and should be at least five metres long and not the two and a half metres supplied so come on Fjallraven fix this issue. Silicone spray is readily available when the time comes to re-proof. The tarp is not cheap but as the saying goes you get what you pay for.
