Only problem with any latex tubing is it will degrade pretty quickly with prolonged exposure to UV.
True. That being said, mine get near constant use & have been in place for almost 2 years. So a minimum of at least 500 uses, & sometimes the tarp is left up all day, so lets say a minimum of 3 weeks in the sun. As I usually am under heavy shade, (& a lot of times setup after dark, take down before sunrise) maybe that makes a diff. I am surprised they have lasted so long.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
