This is my second Winter tarp project. The first one I had to cut the pieces myself than to paint all the walls that I ruined :)
I highly recommend to buy the precut kit save a lot of time.

The kit was awesome and went together quite well. Please update the instructions... they don’t exactly match the material delivered.
Thanks for your review Tommy! We are glad the Pre-cut Tarp Kit was fairly easy to put together. We are working on updating our instructions, thanks for being patient with us!
First off, let me say that RSBTR is awesome. They've been getting alot of my money lately. I'm hooked. I cant wait to go backpacking using the pack I made, and sleep under my winter12 tarp in my self made apex climashield sleeping bag.
Starting off its kind of confusing. I had to download the pdf instructions. The silnylon was stuck together where it was laser cut. I had to peel it apart.the fabric seemed ok though. Take your time sewing the ridgeline. It is not possible to guide it evenly by hand. I pinned the seam and hand stitched a little tack stitch every 6 inches or so and then removed the pins. This made it easy to sew straight through.
I actually bought this for a ground tarp with a bug mesh tent inside, not a hammock. Its too tall to pitch with regular trekking poles and still have the doors line up. So I'll have to use trees or put 6" jackpole extensions on my trekking poles.
My 1.1oz silnylon tarp weighs 1lb 10 oz with 3mm paraccord guy lined
I'm very happy with the order. Everything arrived quickly and packaged in an organized manner. All materials were very high quality and fit together better than expected. The material sample kit included much more material than I expect and was enough to make two additional 5L stuff sacks. Great tutorial videos and after sales support. Thanks Ripstop team.
Thanks for the review Christopher! We're glad you found the Winter Tarp easy to sew. We'd love to see picture of your project. Enjoy!
