MYOG – 9×5 Tarp – Project 1

MYOG Project #1 – Flat Tarp 9x5ft

Trying my hand at making some of my own gear. I have a few ideas in my head and a few on paper.

Why.?.?.? – Well most of the 9×5 tarps I found were either heavier than I wanted by a few hundred grams, didn’t pack as small as I’d like and the decent quality ones were circa £90-100.

The total cost of this tarp was under £40 weighs in at 290g all in (stuff sack and guys), packs nice and small and has plenty of guy out points giving me plenty of pitching options.

The total time to measure, cut, hem, sew and tie off all the thread was around 5 hours or a Sunday afternoon 😉
