I'm starting this thread to show some of the modifications I'm doing to our Gear Guide 12X12 Tarps and Bags. The first pictures are of the the GG bag; the bottom circle was removed and a cinch channel was added with a small segment of the included lines. I'll be adding a spring lock similar to the top of the bag and re-use the bottom circle as pull out reinforcements for the sides of the tarps. I was going for the snake skin effect of not having to remove the gear bag from the hanging line; I'll still need to fold/roll it up yet now I won't need to balance items above the ground trying to stuff the tarp in the bag, I should be able to fold and pull the supported bag over then stuff the ropes in and close.
The Trek Light double has had the included hanging rope and hooks removed and Amsteel woopies and biners added.
