The Ray Mears Tracker Tarp is designed to be versatile and functional and lends itself very nicely to tracking as it can be pitched almost anywhere and set up in many configurations.
Each tarp has been crafted from start to finish right here in the UK, courtesy of Scottish Mountain Gear - a company with whom Ray has had ties with since as far back as his Bushcraft Survival
days. There is an extensive history between companies, and we are very proud to collaborate with them once again on this project.
Measuring 3 m x 3 m, the Tracker Tarp gives the user and their equipment shelter in all conditions. It is made from a strong, lightweight, high tensile ripstop nylon with silicone elastomer coating on both sides.
This design features 21 carefully thought-out attachment points for you to refine each conformation to suit your needs and surroundings. The underside of the tarp details an extra three loops for a pole to be passed through. The pole (not included) allows the tarp to take on the Mountain rig form, this arrangement is shown in the last product photo. Stopping in an exposed area, the Tracker Tarp can be pitched very quickly on open moorland or on a mountainous range.
The nylon roll top stuff sack has been designed to be oversized. When the tarp is wet or if you have cold hands, the extra room will be a huge benefit. It features a loop on the back to hang the set while not in use. A loop is sewn in to the opening allowing the ridgeline to be fed through so the stuff sack does not get lost while in use. A Velcro strip creates a secure closure, keeping everything inside intact and dirt free then a buckle locks the roll top in place while in the closed position. The strap when pulled synchs the stuff sack down compressing it to save space in your pack. The stuff sack also features drainage holes at the bottom to allow any moisture to escape.
The Tracker Tarp comes with one 12 m length of 550 Paracord ridge line, four 7 m lengths of 2mm guy line and three 80 cm lengths of 2 mm attachment cords. By attaching cords to all the points, you will benefit from the tarps full potential which can be applied to any configuration. The last two formations shown in the product images will require The Ray Mears Tracker Tarp Attachment Set. The Mountain rig (final image) will also require the Vango Fibreglass Pole Set 9.5 mm x 65 cm.
This packs away very neatly in the front pocket of the Ray Mears Leaf Cutter Rucksack.
