The Rugged is our toughest Tarpestry Style and has been known to withstand some pretty intense adventures! If you are tough on your stuff then this might be the Tarpestry for you. The Rugged has a urethane-coated polyester top AND base so it is durable, water-repellent and UV resistant on both sides. Team Tarpestry’s favorite uses for the Rugged include water adventures (beach, river, lake), yard work, in the car and on the ski slopes.
While hiking and camping there are a lot of amazing places to rest that might seem too damp, rocky or full of sticks or pine needles. The Rugged gives an extra barrier between these pokey elements so your break will be nice and comfortable. When you’re done resting, pack it up and rope it up at camp over your hammock or lay it down in front of your tent!
The beach is a relaxing place, but the sand can become a major bummer. If you’re using a beach towel or blanket the sand can get really stuck in there! And then they can get wet and take forever to dry. Use a Rugged Tarpestry as your beach mat instead! The sand brushes right off and it’s also quick to dry! Keep your towel dry and sand-free for when you need to use it. The UV resistant fabric provides protection from fading which allows it to hold color when using for long days of full sunshine. When you pack up to leave, roll up your wet items into the Tarpestry to separate them from your dry goods. The Rugged simply can’t be beat for summer beach trips.
