  • 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 WINTER12 Kit contains all the items (*except thread) required to make a 12' Winter/full coverage backpacking/hammock tarp plus accompanying storage sack. Makes the same tarp as the Pre-Cut HEX12 Kit, but with doors on each end. Doors provide 360 o coverage to keep you dry in foul weather. Also increases privacy.

    Take out the guesswork and get exactly what you need with no wasted materials.

    Kit includes:

    Pre-Cut Tarp Panels (*choose color/material above)
    144" x 58" WINTER tarp w/ 2" catenary cut edges

Winter Tarp Pre Cut Kit

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!

Pre-Cut Tarp Kit

As a beginner on a budget. I appreciate this option. Learning to sew and hammock have been fun. Please put your instructions for the kit together and make them separate from the other tarp kits. No instructions for stuff sack, inadequate instructions for seaming for beginners.

I like it. A lot

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

Great product and great service.

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!

Great stuff!

As always, the fabric from RSBTR is top notch and the customer service is excellent. Having the fabric pre-cut is a major time saver and well worth the small additional cost! I'd definitely recommend this kit!
My suggestion: The directions are missing the section on attaching the panel pull-outs and the directions for the corner reinforcements do not match the shape / cut of the reinforcements that are sent with the kit. It took a bit of head scratching to figure out which reinforcements were for which parts of the tarp. My (possibly wrong) conclusion: square is for panel pulls, ice-cream-cone shape is for door tie-outs, and half-circle shape is for ridgeline and corner tie-outs. Maybe the new reinforcements are meant to be glued / seam-sealed on like the reinforcements in the ultralight winter tarp kit? If you do want to sew them on, make sure to hem any edges that would end up raw (i.e., not hidden under the rolled hem along the tarp edge).
