I haven't actually started sewing the tarp kit yet, but I'm very impressed with the way Ripstop By The Roll handled a problem with the shipment. (I got the wrong product, but they sent me the correct kit very quickly.)
I've tested pinning and sewing the UL tarp fabric, and it looks to me like it's going to be doable (even though I'm a beginner at sewing.)
I already made the underquilt -kit that I also ordered, and am very happy with the outcome. Thank you!
Pre-Cut HEX12 Ultralight Tarp Kit
Getting your projects pre-cut by the laser cutter is so much easier than trying to lay out large sections of fabric. Plus, the edges are heat-sealed so no fraying. Just do your glued reinforcements and sew! Kit contains more than enough material for the project. All materials are quality stuff! Very pleased with the super-fast shipping too!
The tarp came out perfect. At first I was slightly intimidated by the super thin slippery fabric, but binder clips helped tremendously with that. Finished weight for such a huge tarp is outstanding. Thanks RBTR
This was my second silnylon UL tarp after doing the Winter12. The MEMBRANE can be intimidating and challenging to manage but once you get a feel for the fabric (I recommend messing around with the extra that is sent for a sack) it isn’t much more than sewing the ridgeline and hemming the edges. The finished project weighed 11.45oz paired with Dutch silk worms, 6 foot Reflect-it guy lines, and a stuff sack!
