One of the most intimidating parts of any DIY can be the layout and cutting of material. Aside from being a pain, the process can be next to impossible if you don't have a large area to work in.
Enter Pre-Cut Kits. Instead of struggling OR not starting your project at all, let us cut your material for you. With Pre-Cut Kits, our team precision cuts your material to the perfect shape. When you get your kit, just pull everything out of the bag and start sewing. No guesswork, no math, no "Oops" .
The Pre-Cut WINTER12 Ultralight Kit contains all the items required to make a 12' Winter/full coverage ULTRALIGHT backpacking/hammock tarp plus accompanying storage sack. Makes the same tarp as the Pre-Cut HEX12 Ultralight Kit, but with doors on each end. Doors provide 360 o coverage to keep you dry in foul weather. Also increases privacy.
Take out the guesswork and get exactly what you need with no wasted materials. Kit includes:
Pre-Cut Tarp Panels (*choose color/material above)
144" x 58" WINTER tarp w/ 2" catenary cut edges
Components (*Optional - choose "YES" or "NO" above)

Update 12/5/17 - Please note that we have switched to providing pre-cut reinforcement panels for all tie-outs, ridgeline, and panel pulls at no extra charge. This saves you the hassle of cutting them out :). Instructions will be updated soon to reflect this change, but just an FYI.
* NOTE - instructions linked below are for the WINTER12 standard tarp kit. For the WINTER12 ultralight, you can use the same build process, but in place of sewn reinforcement triangles we recommend the bonded no-sew reinforcement technique detailed in the blog post HERE.
