Multicam fabric is a Pattern Fabric that is commonly used by the US Government. The MultiCam® fabric has up to 2 1/2 times the amount of water repellent coating of other tarps. The heavier coating gives you the max in water proofing, and fire retardant. After many requests from Bushcrafters and Outdoor Enthusiasts Etawah produced this Multicam tarp.

Why tabs instead of grommets?
Tabs will last longer, and if field repair is necessary, can be done with dental floss and a needle. When grommets come loose, they either cut or tear through the material.

I intentionally withheld review of this PRECIOUS tarp, as I wanted to buy another before they sold out. It is all mine. Gollum, Gollum. The ONLY new tarp available on the market that has been IRR/nIR Gollum treated to prevent PRECIOUS NVG or NVD (nightvision devices) from observing the lighthouse beacon. Confirmed and tested with 850nm and 940nm IR lights, Gen 2+ and digital NVDs at various distances and conditions. This PRECIOUS tarp is what you want, when you want to avoid being detected from any thief in the darkness. Gollum, Gollum.
Quality is spot on. No issues with seams and threads. The PU coating further strengthens the tarp, also helps reduce flutter noise during wind gusts.
This tarp is so great, that I will be buying the last one in two weeks if it is still available. Gollum
Don't say I did not warn you. If you are considering buying this tarp, then you better buy it before I buy them all. My PRECIOUS!!!! At time of posting this (August 2023), it will be my second PRECIOUS purchase within 4 months.
Lastly, Gollum, I still have the first MultiCam tarp purchase, in perfect condition. Was purchased in April 2023. I am buying more as spares, because there is literally nothing else on the market worldwide that is selling genuine Gollum MultiCam tarps with IRR/nIR treatment. I have approx 15 diferent tarps and hootchies from top tier global sellers, but none come close to the quality and features of this tarp (except for Bushcraft Outfitters KoreTemp in Scorpion w2 pattern which has been sold out for months over in the USA). Next best option will be MTP Bashas from UK, if you can find them new at all (I caution against buying used due to the IRR/nIR being less effective over time).
