What You Are Getting:This is an auction for Dupont Tyvek Home Wrap, which is PERFECT for ultralight backing groundcloths. You can put it under your tent, or sleep directly on it under a tarp or under the stars. It also makes good tarp material.
One side is pure white, and one side has the large printing. I usually turn the printing to the ground and keep the white side up.
It's kind of stiff when it's new, but gets soft after it's broken in. You can wash it in a front-loading machine to make it softer ... just be sure you line dry it.
Home Wrap comes in 100-foot rolls, which I've measured at exactly 9 feet wide. I don't need all of it, so I can cut a piece to any length you like. The price is $1.65 for each foot cut off the 9-foot roll.
NOTE: If you want more than the "Quantity Available" listed above, Click here to see my other listings I have plenty! Or you can contact me and tell me to list more.
Here is my sleeping bag on a Tyvek Ground Cloth. I usually turn the printed side down.
Bonus: Free ultralight backpacking article!!
All orders will receive a free article I wrote on ultralight backpacking. You will learn how some people are hiking *very* long distances with total pack weights of less than 9 pounds!! (Before adding the food and water).
It's amazing how much better it feels to move through the wilderness with an ultralight pack ... it feels like a bookbag. You are much more free to move around and explore your surroundings, go off-trail, do whatever you want.
With a heavy pack, you plod ahead on the trail with your head down, grunting though the workload. With an ultralight pack, your head is up, your breathing is normal, and your step is much lighter.
And it doesn't have to be expensive!!! Most of the ultralight equipment is less expensive than the heavy stuff, and is so much more enjoyable. My article even links to websites showing you how to make your own gear. I also include some professional drawings for my own designs -- backpack and sleeping quilt.
