Received my order right on time. It was all as described online, even the colors match the photos online. Had a busy weekend making my first tarp. Now I am ready to hit the trails
A very good fabric, easy to sew, if you use a slow speed.
It the only one fabric available in this size, and it is easy to do a tarp with only one piece.
Thank you RipstopByTheRoll
Gear Boxes need to be tough and waterproof, because a Gear Box is a Gear Hammock that folks use to store their backpack. It has to be waterproof, and it has to withstand a tired hiker dumping a loaded back pack into it.
I don't expect perfection, mistakes happen even with the best technology and the best intentions. What I really care about is how mistakes are handled. RBTY was perfect. First they apologized for the problem. Secondly, they offered to replace the materials. And then, thirdly, asked what else they could do to make things right! I don't know how anyone could do better than that. That's World Class!!
New to the game so wasn't sure which side of silpoly was facing outside, and new to sewing. But the sewing pattern and instructions were clear and simple. Excellent beginner's project to build skills and confidence for other diy gear. FYI, I used grass trimming line to "fish" the 1/16 cord through the rolled hem (lol using the lingo) channels.
