Tyvek Ground Sheets
That's like a double sides tape? That would take care of the loops I wanted, so I support this recommendation.
I would actually prefer the 30x84 instead of the 24x78. Without grommets or loops
I would buy a couple of 36 x 84's, but no 30 x 84's.geoff
When are these going to be for sale?
Are these actual Tyvek brand, or just a copy?
i am interested the 60/96.When will you have these for sale?
I don't know much about Tyvek other than the envelopes are a ridiculous pain in the @ss to open, but would it be a cheap and resilient barrier to keep me from poking a hole through my Exped sleeping pads? I only ask because with the $30 Target-special air mattresses I have the single worst luck with popping them in about 3 uses. I've been using my SynMats for a while now but I always worry and hey what's 2oz if I buy one of the UL mats next month?Anyhow, if it's a worthwhile endeavor you could put me down for two of the smallest size. :)
These are going to made from Tyvek brand using the 1025D Hard Structure grade. As far as availability goes, within about a week. I will keep the forum posted.Thanks,Lawson
I would buy a couple of 36 x 84's, but not the 30 x 84's. I have noticed that tyvek shrinks when I wash it, and I have wide shoulders so I like a 24" mat. I also like to put rocks and such under the edges to create at bathtub effect. Maybe an option would be to take pre-orders for the people interested in the 36 x 84's Regards,John
i am definitely in for (quantity) 2 of the of 30"x84"!
I'm with John Devitt--I would prefer 84" x 36" sheets. If people really want a sheet that is 84" x 30", they could always cut 6" off the side, and then use their vacuum sealer to make 6" bombproof envelopes for their Kahtoola Microspikes, tent stakes, or whatever else they can think of.
60 X 96 would be my order and thanks for supplying the goods.Jay
60x96 is ideal for me.
I added the 30x84 and 60x96 to my website today. They are instock and ready to ship. The longer sizes will be added in a week or two when I get more material instock. Also I am now offering $5.00 First Class International Shipping. Thanks,Lawson
Hi Lawson,I see the groundsheets are listed as "Features: Lightweight, Durable, Water-resistant, Compact". How water-resistant are they?Edit: NM, found this: http://industrialpackaging.dupont.com/4products/index.html

Got my 30x84 sheet today. Same stiff, yet slick Tyvek that most are used to except slightly less burly. I think this could be a great compromise for those folks who are leery of polycro's perceived lack of durability, yet don't want to carry standard "heavy" Tyvek. Some field testing will tell the tale. Ryan
I have sold quite a few of these ground sheets so far and was wondering if there was any other feedback?Thanks,Lawson
Used mine for two nights on the AT this past weekend. Worked well. Forgot to crinkle mine until night #2 - that was a mistake. Ryan

I have received mine, but haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. just curious though, is this variety safe to wash as well? just hoping to soften it up.
Haven't had a chance to try mine yet, but it's clearly very strong, much stronger than polycro. My only concern, still theoretical at this point, is that it may be less grippy than polycro, but I could be totally wrong about that.
