I enjoyed being able to make just the tarp I wanted, at a price I could afford to pay-- saved about half the cost of buying. My finished PU4000 tarp, including Hennessy Snakeskins, Zing-it ridge lines, and Dutchware Stingerz, weighs 26.6oz.
I appreciated the available how-to video; a good supplement to the pdf instructions. I would suggest editing that pdf to include the updated circle-segment reinforcements, as I wasn't quite sure what to do with them and had to search it out. This is not a difficult project, and I love my new tarp!
Great tarp kit and lots of tarp fabric to work with. Would have been better to cut the tie out reinforcements myself and have a bit better instructions with it. Worked out good but it would have been better to have slightly bigger tie out reinforcements.
Perfect Kit, thanks Ripstop by The Roll.
I received my winter tarp kit within days of placing my order. Everything needed to make the tarp according to the excellent directions on the website. I had plenty of material left over to make a nice pack cover. Thanks!
The kit instructions direct you to sew on the ridgeline reinforcement panels before seam sealing, meaning the final 6" on either end of the ridgeline seam is obstructed when trying to apply the sealant. I'm not too worried about water intrusion given it's a flat felled seam but it was something I had noticed too late into the project.
