*Note* These are Grade 2. There may be repairs, marks and/or stains. The ability to be waterproofed may be compromised by this used condition. See last two pictures for examples. 

Grade 2 strichtarn zeltbahn, oh no! These have been separated out by our incredible warehouse team because their condition is not up to par! These tarps have repairs, marks, stains or sometimes all three. They can still do all the same zeltbahn things as the ones in better condition but waterproofing these may be more difficult.

The East German "zeltbahn" is a multi purpose shelter-half and poncho or cape, also known as "pup-tents". Two men would carry a zeltbahn each and button them together creating a two man shelter. Many more can be buttoned together to create a larger shelter. The ones we have here do not come with a pole or pegs but spare equipment from other tents could be used for a makeshift shelter. 

To wear as a poncho, wrap around the user and button up at the front. There are two arm slits that can be buttoned closed and two draw cords - one to tighten the hood around the neck and the other to tighten the hood. Complete with the strichtarn/strichmuster camouflage pattern, these will offer some concealment as well, especially if you're looking to emulate a rainy day. The water repellency of the fabric has not been tested and they are pretty old, probably that up if you want to get fully immersed outside. These East German tarpaulin's are a highly adaptable piece of kit. Get a couple with your friends and let teamwork make the dream work today!
