This is a kit like God's grace because I don't have room to cut the vast tarp fabric.
1.1silpoly was easier to sew than expected, and a great winter tarp was output!
It is recommended to use a thread with a small expansion rate.
Also, each tieout tried the same method as the ultralight version, but it seems to work well with 1.1 too!
I would be happy if there were a little more color variations, but still a great DIY kit!
RSBTR is a treasure trove for me:)
Fast shipping on a silpoly and a silnylon winter 12 kit. My first projects ever! Went together great, one kit was short 3 reinforcing pads, but I didnt have time to catch up with RsBtR, buddy came thru for me and spotted me some fabric to finish up. Have used them twice now in typical Virginia winter weather, low 30°s and rainy.
Love it! Thanks Ripstop!
Everything arrived quickly and as expected. Saved a ton of money and was able to customize it to make it just how I wanted.
The pre cut tarp kit was fantastic, however the reinforcements are a little tricky to attach, especially with the cat cuts. The instructions are good if not a little outdated. Take your time and it'll turn out great! The fact everything is already cut and ready to sew is a godsend.
Everything was included and RBTR was great. The nature of the fabric and the caternary cuts created challenges, but nothing insurmountable. Also pre-cut is the way to do it. Finished product covers a huge area for a little over a pound.
