A lighter weight version of the Adapter Shade Panel when packed size and weight considerations are at a premium. A thermal reflective specialty product in the ThermaShield family designed for the overland community. Intended as the basic building block for making scalable shelter, its tapered trapezoid shape attaches quickly to narrower off-road vehicles, Sprinter type vans, or side-by-side roll cages providing short-term thermal protection from the elements. Enjoy a quick 20-40° cooler lunch stop on the trail; protect you or others when things go pear shape or build a scalable Bedouin type camp with wind or rain walls by snapping in as many ThermaShield family blankets (sold separately) as you need. Enjoy shelter both on or off your vehicle, keep track of small parts during repairs, protect yourself from burns when lying under your rig in the hot sand, or maybe it is just snuggling up at the campfire or keeping warm at a chilly sporting event. The uses are only limited to your imagination. Like all ThermaShield products, the ASP provides many functions while giving your family that emergency protection when needed. The Adapter Shade Panel is not a “one trick pony”; It will earn its spot in your rig.
Padded corners allow snapping in additional field blankets while protecting your vehicle’s expensive paint. Hypalon backed anchor rings stay centered on the pole tips and provide a 270° stable arc to pull from. ¾” Stake Straps clip to in to the MILSPEC anchor buckles and cinch down for a rock-solid standard configuration. Available SmartClip Adapters allow you to lock in paracord or small bungee cord for those non-standard setups fixing to objects or vehicles.
The ASP’s compact size and weight take up little room but provide emergency and medical protection should things go sideways. Reduce heat injuries, cold injuries or treat for shock. The Adapter Shade Panel can be used as an expedient litter in a pinch.
The Adapter Shade Panel is designed to be a modular system’s starting point. Alone it provides quick shade and protection under its 6’ x 10’ footprint. Attaching a single Field Blanket to either the sides or end gives you wind/shade/rain protection and keeps the afternoon sun off you as it descends. With standard ThermaShield snap spacing, you can attach additional Field Blankets in minutes adding 60 sqft of protection each time.
