Quality Material & Outstanding Service

Cannot say enough about the quality of the material received in the Hex 12 Tarp Kit. It was easy to work with the kit instructions were easy to follow. Kit was short the grosgrain but Ripstop sent replacement out immediately upon being contacted. Again quality material and excellent customer service. By the way I made my tarp using a treadle sewing machine from the early 1900’s.

Thanks for your review Alan! We're sorry the grosgrain was short but glad we could get you extra materials out so you could complete your project. We'd love to see photos of your finished tarp! Here is a link if you want to share any photos. https://forms.gle/Bo5kxebgQst2y8nX7

Great products & excellent customer service

Purchased a number of items on 3 different orders. Couldn’t be happier. Couple of items missed on second order but offered 15% discount on follow up purchase and sent immediately. Will be back for more gear! Thx, RBTR!!!

Hi Jason. Thanks for your orders! We do own up to our mistakes, and work quickly to rectify them.

Excellent Kit

Includes everything you need besides thread and seam sealer. The fabric is excellent quality and has stood up to some decent storms, just be sure you seal your seams.

Thanks for the kind words Les! Hope you get years of use out of your tarp.
