I made a tulle skin for my cf tarp.
Started with a 4 inch wide strip 2 foot longer than the tarp ridgeline. sewed it up and the tap is not a rigid stick.
It will still get about small softball size and can still be put in the stuff sack if you want to. I usually just stuff the skin into an outside pocket on my pack.
Being one piece makes it even easier to use
Life's A Journey
It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
