    Pocket Tarp

    I can attest to the water repellency of this material. I lived under my 3x3 tarp made by Bilmo for a few weeks in total last year.

    Bushcrafty films on Netflix

    Pimping tarp and hammock suspension

    I use a couple of dutch flyz on the ridge line purely because I've used zingit for the ridge as it's strong and stupidly light, even with the flyz it's ligjter than any line I've used, but if i hadn't used a string that is tosh to tie knots with i would still tie knots. :)
