I really dont "fold it". I gently roll it up into a football size ball. Then slide it into a stuff sack. I have tried stuffing and it doesn't feel very safe on the bonded seams. That's the reason I roll it up, and then roll it from end to end. It's sooo much gentler on the bonding than stuffing.Actaully I would highly discourage anyone from stuffing this tarp. Roll that thang up.
