  • 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 HEX12 Kit contains all the items required to make a ~ 12' Hex shaped backpacking/hammock tarp plus accompanying storage sack. Take out the guesswork and get exactly what you need with no wasted materials.

    Kit includes:

    Pre-Cut Tarp Panels (*choose color/material above)
    ~140" x 57" w/ 2" catenary cut edges (*slightly smaller than 12' due to cut process)
    ~94" between ground tie-outs for increased coverage

    (1) 18" x 20" waterproof fabric blank (1.1 oz Silpoly)

Great to make my first tarp

I needed a tarp for my kids hammock, and didn't want to cut it and get all the right tie downs. This was a Great! kit for me to start with. The instructions were exactly what I needed! The kit included everything I needed, and some extras!

Thanks Riley! This is an awesome kit to start with and we are glad the instructions were helpful for you. We hope your tarp keeps your dry for many seasons to come.

Jacob Oblander

Super easy way to try my hand at a larger scale project. Everything besides thread and parachord was included!

Thanks for leaving us a review Jacob! We're glad you can get more comfortable with a large project with our DIY Kits! If you have any questions about future projects, feel free to reach out and ask, we're here to help!

Great kit!

The precut aspect makes it easy to sew. The directions are clear but need to be updated to specify ridgeline points vs. tie out points and match the pieces in the kit. Well worth the investment!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review Lindsey! We are working on updating our instructions and will make sure to make that part more clear, thanks for the suggestion!

Easy to sew and great quality.

Come on, it’s Rip Stop by the Roll. You know it’s gonna be quality. The precut hex12 is no different. Fast shipping, great price, and a quality piece of gear.

Thanks so much Peter! We're glad the Pre-Cut HEX12 Tarp met your standards. We appreciate you being a loyal customer!

Great idea, but beware of FedEx charges

The kit is fab and goes together very quickly. I'd have struggled to find space to cut out this much fabric. There's plenty of ripstop included to make a stuffsack too. It's well thought out and great value.

Delivery by FedEx to UK was rocket quick. However, two weeks later came FedEx's claim for import duty, I didn't mind paying the £9.00 tax but the £12.00 admin charge stung a bit too much.

I'm glad I got the kit :)

Hey Stuart! Thanks so much for the review. We're glad that it was enough for the tarp and stuff sack. Unfortunately since we are based in North Carolina, customs and duties fees are not accounted for in our international shipping fees.
