Hi 100 mile runner.
I haven't weighed it yet, but it seems around the 2 lb mark with line clips and tarp sleeves all factored in. For the size it's surprisingly light. It seems well in line (weight by size) with my HH Hexfly 30D Silnylon. Also, while I mentioned it cost me $30 for the Tyvek, that was with shipping to Canada. The Tyvek itself was about $15.
The supplier I get it from says the following;
"Tyvek Homewrap Specifications:
Weight (first things first!): I have measured and weighed it carefully at 1.7 oz/square yard. A 4 x 7 foot piece weighs about 5.25 ounces.
Width: Exactly 9 feet.
Length: Order any quantity of length you like (measured in feet)."
Knowing that 9ft by 12ft is 12 yards, then the weight (before adding Zing-it) should be 20.4 oz or just over 1.25 pounds. I guess my estimate was overly conservative.
“The word 'hammockable' (describing two trees that are the perfect distance apart between which a hammock can be hung) is not in the dictionary, but it should be.”
