MLD GRACE TARP

WEIGHT: 7 – 12 oz | 190 – 345 gm
SHAPE: A Frame

The MLD Grace Tarp is a classic, lightweight “A Frame” tarp that is slightly trapezoidal with a catenary (curved) cut ridgeline, rear, and front ends. This shape pitches quick, and only three side tie-outs are needed for a tight pitch! The baseline (side edge) length is only a few inches shorter than the ridgeline for full coverage at the edges.

The Grace Tarp is available in two sizes – solo and duo – as well as in a range of fabrics, weights, and colors to meet your outdoor (and fashion) needs.

MLD PRO SILNYLON SEAM SEALING

COST: $30
WEIGHT: 1.0 oz | 28 gm

The SilNylon version of this tarp requires seam sealing, which is why we include seam sealer with all our SilNylon shelters. You can seam seal this tarp yourself in about 30 minutes with the supplied seam sealer OR as an extra service we can do it for you!

We use a diluted 100% Silicone Sealer on the exterior stitching above the lower hem. Factory seam sealing can add about 1 week to the order process. Seam sealing adds about 1 oz | 30 gm +/- depending on the shelter size.

Factory sealed shelters are returnable under the regular return policy, where as DYI seam sealing is not.

NOTE: DCF shelters do not need seam sealing.

CARBON FIBER (CF) POLE SET

COST: $50
WEIGHT: 2.6 oz | 74 gm

Optionally, you can order a set of the very best Carbon Fiber tarp poles available! These poles are not just a simple pultruded, or wrapped in one direction tube, like cheaper CF poles – they are 0.355 outside diameter multi-ply, multi-direction carbon fiber construction. Tall enough for a 6+ footer to sit up under a tarp, but short enough to avoid an unstable tall wind profile.

This set includes:

1 x 28 in | 71 cm Carbon Fiber Rear Pole (0.95 oz | 27 gm)
1 x 42 in | 106 cm Carbon Fiber Front Pole (1.65 oz | 47 gm)

POLE FEATURES

• Stiff enough for Duo size tarps – Light enough for Solo
• Grommet locking tips- Easy to girth hitch guyline
• 15.5 in | 39 cm folded lengths for compactness
• Long and Strong aluminum internal ferrules with fast connect rounded end guides and tube spacer bumpers to prevent CF to CF abrasion

TITANIUM STAKES

COST: $25
WEIGHT: 2.2 oz | 62 gm

Add 8 Titanium Skewer Stakes to your purchase. Stakes are 6.5 in | 16.5 cm tall and each stake weighs 0.27 oz | 8 gm.

MLD 2.7 MM PRO REFLECTO GUYLINE

COST: $6
WEIGHT: 2.9 oz | 82 gm

This product includes 40′ of our regular, non-reflective Pro Guyline in your choice of Yellow or OD Green. You can upgrade this to 50′ of 2.7 MM Reflecto Pro Guyline which has properly spaced reflective markers that are bright enough to see, without making your shelter look like that obnoxious house on your block with the out-of-control Christmas lights.

Each of our SilNylon shelters comes with one tube of McNett Sil-Net Seam Sealer. It is STRONGLY recommended you use this supplied seam sealer to seal and strengthen the seams of your shelter.**DCF (Dyneema® Composite Fabric A.K.A. Cuben Fiber) Shelters do not need seam sealed.**

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Pitch and inspect your shelter for any issues. Once it is seam sealed, it is non-returnable except for significant defects.
2. Use the supplied SilNet Sealer and ONLY the SilNet Sealer. (If you want to dilute it or use some other silicone sealant it should work OK and is common (research this yourself online) but, you are on your own- results may vary and are not covered by warranty! If you go this route, it is assumed you know 100% what you are doing and have done it before!!!)
3. Pitch the shelter tightly. Temperatures should be above 60 F and humidity below 80%. You may do this indoors. You may also do one seam at a time indoors if the seam is stretched slightly. Pinning one seam from each end on the floor between two heavy objects works OK.
4. We use the SilNet straight from the tube. Do not make a big hole in the sealer tube – start small so that you can control flow. Multiple small application is a lot better than one big smear.
5. Main Seams: Place a small bead on the seam along the stitching. Work on a 3’- 4’ section at a time. Use a finger to press the sealer into the stitching and the small valley at the edge of the seam where it is rolled under.

ALLOW AT LEAST 24 HOURS TO FULLY DRY.

NOTE: You only need to seal the OUTSIDE of the shelter. You do not need to seal the bottom perimeter roller edge stitching. It is OK to add a small bead on the leading edge of the triangle tie-outs reinforcement stitching, but it is not required.

SPECIAL AREAS: Add a little sealer to any tie-out stitching on the middle of a panel (Mids, Cricket, and SuperTarps). Seal the zipper storm flap stitching and tie-outs on the Mids. Seal the stitching and apex tie-outs areas on the Mids, Crickets, and TrailStars.

IMPORTANT: Do no go back and forth over the wet seam too much – after a minute or three it will get gummy and look bad; it is better to wait for 8 hrs and then add some over any area you missed.

    The original cat cut a-frame tarp. I love it! Best quality sil-nylon gear out there.

    I’ve been playing with this tarp for a week and I love it. I got the .5 cuben version and it is even lighter than the website says. Super easy to get a taut pitch with the cut and bigger than I thought. I left the tarp up in my yard during a Florida thunderstorm and it did wonderful. I would trust this on my next trip. MLD quality is outstanding!

    One of my favorite pieces of gear. The cut is elegant and very easy to get taut. It’s super versatile and you can pitch it in a number of ways depending on your sleeping site conditions. I’ve slept in very windy and wet conditions and it performed beautifully.

    I received a larger prototype of this tarp in May of 2017. After taping the seams this tarp kept us dry in a full night of moderate rain in little Yosemite valley and during a torrential downpour near Aspen. Very light weight, spacious, and easy to pitch once you get the hang of it. We also used this tarp as a floor sheet for a cowboy camp on the beach, and it performed excellently at this function as well. There were no signs of abrasion or stitching failing despite being laid out over coarse sand and driftwood. Excellent product and great customer service by MLD.

    Amazing Tarp! I took this to Iceland to hike the Laugavegur/Fimmvörðuháls trail and it performed beautifully in high winds and constant rain. It takes a little bit of practice to set it up properly and you do have to pay attention to the weather and campsite to achieve ideal set up, but I have found it to can be extremely cozy and comfortable, and I now prefer this tarp to any tent I’ve owned.

    A bought mine 3 years ago. I came back today to see the weight cause I couldn’t remember and lo and behold my photo of this gem is on the featured pics for the website! That’s Vee Lake in September. I am still using the same tarp and I can only say it’s awesome! Rugged yet light. I keep it stored inside my house so that probably helps. Super easy to set up and adjust.
