DIY Ultralight Tarp Build - Using New Mountain Series Fabric


​I am making a new tarp for a buddy that does ski mountaineering.  The goal is basically pocket size, snow set up, for just relaxing and getting out of the weather for lunch to possible survival.  I am making it out of ripstopbytheroll.com's new Mountain Series 1.1oz Silnylon, and the new Venom UHMWPE webbing for tie outs.

The Mountain Series is quite simply a collection of the highest performance fabrics/materials on earth. If you're searching for the best, this is it. 

Any Q & A you may have.

Come keep me company.

Venom™ UHMWPE webbing.

Designed, woven, and produced from scratch by us, Venom™ webbing uses one of the world's strongest fibers (UHMWPE) to yield a webbing that's super light, crazy strong, and more abrasion resistant than common nylon and polyester webbing.

And the numbers don't lie. We tested our 3/4" Venom™ webbing to an average break strength of over 2700 lbs. To put that in perspective, our 1" polyester webbing has a break strength of just over 1500 lbs at over 3.5x the weight!

If you want webbing that's lighter, tougher, and stronger, this is it. Period. Perfect for backpack strapping, webbing suspensions, pack loops, compression straps, carrying slings, etc.
