Fjallraven Abisko Tarp - Details

What it is : It has been some time since I posted my preview of this tarp - since then I have continued to test it and have done so in a variety of conditions ranging from warm summer days and nights to cold and windy winter ones.

This is the 10x10’ Fjallraven Abisko Tarp and unfortunately this product is simply not worth the rather high cost.

After a great deal of testing I can share with you both the cons as well as the pros of what I consider to be an expensive disappointment. 

Originally I purchased this Tarp from the Ray Mears site as it wasn’t available in the USA.  Over time that has changed and this tarp is available on Amazon and it can be found at other sites as well.  Not that I would recommend that you purchase it but as an FYI.

From the company :
The Fjallraven Abisko Tarp is made from lightweight, strong nylon. Practical as an accessory for tents but can also be used by itself as a shelter. 

This 10 x 10’ tarp is made from light and very strong 40 D TripleRip Sil-Nylon fabric and includes Dyneema guylines. A tarp can be used together with a regular tent to create an outside living space but is also easy to use by itself as a shelter to sleep under.
Made for a lifetime of use. 

Also easy to use by itself as a shelter from wind and rain.
