Got some 1.25 oz tyvek coming from quest to make a tarp and a bivy.
I have read its best not to sew it, IE best to glue it or tape it, so the first question is what glue is the best, or should I just tape it ?? What sort of weight gain are we talking about to tape say a 9x9 tarp.
What is the best and lightest way to set up the tieout loops on a tarp??
I have read just use tyvek tape, but I assume you could glue a stip of tyvek on for a tie out loop too. I also want a few on the top too.
Gromets would be okay but maybe too heavy ??
On the bivy, I think I am going to install about a 4'L waterproof zipper down the side to help entry and exit, but I dont have a clue how to fasten that. Since it does not get a whole lot of stress I was thinking it might be best to sew it then seal the seams.
Thanks in advance
