I'd take 2 at some point on 10/16/2012 08:34:52 MDT Print View

I still need to finish a few MYOG projects before I could say which sizes more decisively but I'd for sure take a 60x96 and probably a 24x78 but that might change to 36x84 depending on a few things.

anyway, you can count on me for 2 before xmass.

Thanks for the interest. These should be instock and ready to ship in about two weeks.

I noticed some people were interested in grommets at the corners. Do more people prefer them with or without grommets? I could fold the corner and install a spur type grommet but it would effect the price a bit. Let me know.

Thanks,
Lawson

I wouldn't want grommets because they're a hard edge I don't want in my pack, but I do like loops. Loops are real handy when it's windy. Tyvek loops might make me order one even though I just bought one from Joe.

use as a tarp on 10/17/2012 00:24:23 MDT Print View

Any thoughts on using the 5x10 as a tarp shelter anyone? For about 7 ounces that might not be a bad idea...

I think grommets would be a good idea, in this aspect.

In a pinch, sure, it'll work.

Re: use as a tarp on 10/17/2012 05:34:21 MDT Print View

In mild weather it would work OK as a tarp. The tear resistance is most likely to be very low for this tyvek, so high winds would be a killer. Folks over on Hammock Forums have made a few and seems like they all ended badly.

Grommets or Loops on 10/18/2012 03:33:41 MDT Print View

I would like grommets as already stated but tabs or loops would be even better- I just assumed grommets would be faster to install.

Size Change on 10/18/2012 15:04:19 MDT Print View

Instead of the 24"x78" and 36"x84", I have decided to do a 30"x84" and I will keep the price at $8.00. This will be a better width for a bivysack and it allows for a cheaper price and less weight at 2.43oz.. I hope everyone that wanted a 36" width is cool by this??

Thanks,
Lawson

Re: Size Change on 10/18/2012 16:15:32 MDT Print View

The size change works for me-

also- w/o grommets

BTW- I would still be interested in the 36" width so I could sew the corners to make a 3" bathtub floor- that is what I was planning to do with the 36" and was hoping for a little longer then 84" to make the ends work (like +/- 92")

size on 10/18/2012 16:53:17 MDT Print View

30 x 84 works for me-- so instead of two 24 x 78 and 1 each of 36 x 84 and 60 x 96, I'd take two of 36 x 84 and 1 of 60 x 96.

Usually weight the corners of my groundsheet with rocks, so grommets not necessary, but they'd be OK, and I'd be OK with a price increase to cover them.

Adhesive tape on 10/19/2012 05:04:29 MDT Print View

Hey Lawson,

What about stocking the adhesive tape you mentioned in previous threads:
3M 9485
C3 Sailtape

I know a few people who have good luck doing the bathtub floor mods and one partial bivy style that had the foot area covered for use under a tarp.
