    Well, I should have hemmed all the outside edges. It came out kind of crappy. I have 9 of the 1.5" pockets with slack for the 8 stakes and the plastic tube that holds the 35' OF 2.0 MM Zing It ridge line. There are 8, 3" pockets for the guy lines. I used gutted Paracord for the tie.

    Thank you Jellyfish for bringing this up. I was struggling to find a better way to keep my lines from tangling. I'm not sure how that ridge line will come out of the tube. I free stuffed the guy lines but next time I will figure 8 them. It took a long time to just stuff them directly in.

    It's 1.1oz ripstop nylon. Two pieces 12" x 48" to start. Then cut and hemmed with the cord stitched into that hem.

    Do you find the tube for the zinging worth using? Is it to keep tangles at bay?

    Not worth using. The zing it does not tangle but it's hard to get all pushed in there. I want something long and thin to wrap the zing it around. Or I might have to shorten it. 35' is a little extreme. I want a stiff piece of plastic 1"x1/8"x8" I can cut V notches on the ends and wrap it up on that.

    Now if you are into counting grams Look Away Now.. A buddy of mine uses this apparatus in his kayak when we kayak, he puts his car keys and his wallet etc. Definitely an overkill but it's at a decent price. I car camp so I can use one of these for my tarp stakes. https://weldingsupply.com/cgi-bin/ei...EF:X:RG-100-24

    Back in the workshop on this windy afternoon. I put this roll up pouch together with some orange ripstop that was in the DIY kit from ripstopbytheroll. Each pocket for stake was 1-1/2" wide x 8" tall. On the end I made a pocket that is 5-1/4" x 8" tall with a snap to keep my tieouts and other miscellaneous "Dutch Bling" together. Now to the very far right I made a tall hidden pocket to put anything larger in. It's about 11" tall but only 2" wide.
