THE POSSIBILITES ARE LIMITLESS

We built the ultimate, super lightweight Ground Cloth for minimalist overnight backpackers who like to sleep under the stars, but who still want foolproof protection for their gear from moisture, mud and dirt.

Ideal for goal-oriented adventurers constantly on the move and in need of fast protection from inclement weather, it’s sizeable but weighs less than an iPhone. Pair it with our Flat Tarp or UltaMids (if not using the respective inserts). Made of 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber), it serves as an excellent waterproof barrier between you and the ground. Stake it out with its reinforced loops so the wind doesn’t blow it away.

Light in the Pack
I use the ultamid 2 with the half insert or not. The ground cloth works great at half the weight of my homemade ground cover. When it’s windy I use titanium shepherd hooks to keep it from leaving with the breeze while I’m not on it. Good stuff.

Great
I was very surprised at how small this ground cloth packs down. I knew it would be high quality because that's what HMG is about. If space in your pack is at a premium, this is worth the $.

These are Great!
So useful, lightweight and well made. Just bought a second, as the first has been so useful - great for a camp, but also sees lots of use as a general purpose picnic/festival/backyard blanket. Highly recommend.

Haven't used yet but...

So impressed with the quality. It's light enough to have a permanent spot in my pack but it seems tough enough to be used in a variety of ways without worrying. Something to sit on, to put gear on, have a picnic on, to hang as a tarp, as an emergency blanket, a tent footprint, who knows. Great little stuff sack. I'm moving away from nylon where I can -- expensive to go DCF but when things get wet I'd rather have it. Just shake off the water and go, plus repairs are easy.

To Use With UM4 Tent

Bought to use with my mid 4 tent and/or as a sit area. For the negligible weight worth it to have it in the pack for any one of a dozen uses.

Light, waterproof, perfact

Lightest darn ground cloth I have ever used. Other ground cloths are just too flimsy and are not waterproof. This thing is light as can be and still feels substantial. Good job!
