Hey guys, in a couple weeks I'll be leaving on my first thru hike.
I already had a siltarp that I've been using for a couple summers but wanted to make a tarp after watching you guys' threads about all your awesome gear.
I decided to go with the Ray Way kit since I had no clue how to sew. I knew I would need some detailed instructions.
Its huge, especially compared to my siltarp. I feel as if I could fit 3 if not a cramped 4 under the shelter.
Final weight, seam sealed with guy lines: 16.7.
I was a little disappointed in the weight but I can't do anything about it now. I was hoping it would be a couple few oz lighter.
If I had close up photos you pro sewers would see all my mistakes but its super tough, just not that pretty.
I now have great appreciation for all the work these take. Especially the cottage companies who are working their tales off to get them perfect. I can't imagine the precision it would take.
THANKS FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION
