Winter12 Ultralight Tarp Kit

Ripstop by the Roll

$5.00 /kit

Featuring MEMBRANE silpoly and 1/2" hardware, this kit contains all the items required to make a 12' Winter/full coverage ULTRALIGHT backpacking or hammock tarp plus stuff sack. 

Makes the same tarp as the HEX12 ultralight kit, but with doors on each end. Doors provide 360 coverage to keep you dry in foul weather. Also increases privacy.

Take out the guesswork and get exactly what you need. Kit includes:

Ultralight Tarp Material (*choose above)
10 yds

Components (*prepackaged)
(14) 1/2" Beastee D-rings
(2) cordlocks 
3" UL radial reinforcement template 
(5') 1.5 mm drawcord
(6') 1/2" MIL-SPEC grosgrain - Black 

We've prepackaged the components you'll need, so all you do is select your tarp fabric above

*Note - On cart page, components portion of kit and fabric will be shown separately, but total price will remain the same. This is done to manage fabric inventory. Please note that all kits are sold as a unit. We cannot sell components or any portion of the kit separately. You may purchase more than one kit, but multiple kits must be added to cart individually. 


*Note - instructions linked below are for the WINTER12 standard tarp kit. For the WINTER12 ultralight, you can use the same build process, but in place of sewn reinforcement triangles we recommend the bonded no-sew reinforcement technique detailed in this blog post.
