9' x9' tarp with 0.48oz Cuben
I know that cottage manufacturers and experienced posters to this forum seem to favor the heavier styles of cuben (CT2K.08, for example) for large tarps for the sake of durability, but I can’t he...

UHMWPE woven fabric
I've been returning periodically to this search for several years, and I haven't found a good source yet, either. I did find, about two years ago, a small garment-making operation in the Se...

Water bag/bladder
The body of this water bag is made from 70D heat sealable nylon, and the cap was removed from an old TPU bladder that had a burst seam. The capacity is about 5 liters (over 11 lbs of water!), which...

Heavier cuben
