    Keep in mind the roll is built around the MSR Mini Ground Hog size stakes, using a single piece of fabric... The Ruta Locura carbon fiber, Ti Shephard Hooks and pretty much any six inch stake should fit in the stake sleeves, but if you're using larger stakes you'll have to adjust dimensions. I'm planning one of the above in Tyvek or cuben.. and then a larger one for winter stakes. If I make the larger one I'll post dimensions. Click the pic above for a few more images in my HF albums....

    Beautiful, thank you! Luckily I use the mini groundhogs as well so this should work nicely.

    Where do you store your suspension.

    Had some free time this morning and wanted to try working with the Tyvek-like shipping envelope.

    Easy enough to sew this stuff. Fits the smaller Mini Ground Hog size stakes and whatever else one wants to stuff in the pockets. I left the flap over the stake pockets open. Looks like I just drew on it, but all the pockets are sewn in.. same as my silnylon roll.

    I'm did this as an experiment and won't use this one... If any one wants it PM me.. freebie...

    You have UCRs for your tarp tie-outs, correct? Do you leave them on your tarp? What kind of connection do you use to attach to your stakes?

    I use tarp worms with ZPacks ZLine most of the year.. change to the zingit with mini ucrs when it gets cold. The tarp worms are hard to do with cold fingers and near impossible with gloves on. Both the shock cord on the worms and the fixed eye on the mini ucr are girth hitched to the tarps split rings.

    The Zline has an eye tied in both ends of the guy line... I use a Double Dragon knot. The zingit has a single locked eye in the stake end and two barrel knots about two inches apart, tied in the ucr end. One as a stopper knot and one to grab... remember, cold hands and gloves.
