Out of curiosity, if this is a pocket tarp, how big a pocket would you need to carry it? Genuine question, because I have a synthetic tarp of the same dimensions and it still doesn't pack down small enough to go in most pockets, despite being almost certainly less bulky than this.

Not a criticism. I rather covet one of these myself and I already know the quality of your work. :)

It is cotton tent canvas and has a water repellent treatment during manufacture. Eventually the fabric will wet out and the fibres will swell to make the close weave tighter still and maintain repellency. Cotton tents and tarps generally benefit from a a good soaking or two early on to tighten everything up, close needle holes etc.

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. During that time we had rain most days(and i mean stair rod rain :) ) I and my kit was always dry under the tarp. It drys out very quickly and takes the punishment of being used roughly with out a tear. It's great kit.

Hi,

Sorry this is a late reply to an old thread. I understand that prices will have increased. I'm looking for a present for a keen scout daughter. I understand that it will be a new year rather than a Christmas gift now, but are there any still available?

All the best.
