    I'd vote for either of the Arrowhead Equip tarps if doors aren't needed. Exceptional value IMO.

    I ordered 3 yards for each of my nephews, no plans to cut anything - just going to generously hem all around to hide the selvage and wait until they outgrow it.

    Just curious - when it ripped, had you roll-hemmed the edges yet? I was just whipping up a bunch of raw fabric, and the poly 1.2 is the only one that tore on me. I an inclined to think that w/ roll...

    Nice.. guess no fears about it being too stretchy? Prior to new fabric tech 1.1 DL was my goto (I weight in at 205), I just figured the 1.6 + 0.7 would be in a similar ballpark.
