    Me too! I think 2Q is the guy to do it! Or at least sell it as an add-on.

    for those of us who use a pole mod with our tarps it'd be one less thing to loose or break.

    MM, do you see punctures or leaks as a problem?

    I wonder if you could make a tube out of cuben. Taped seams would probably hold air in a similar fashion to the way it keeps water out in a dry bag. Order a valve from thermarest and you might be in business.

    Less of an issue than with a bivy on the ground.
    Just be careful who you annoy.

    Wouldn't these deflate as the temp drops during the night? I know my float tubes and pontoons do. Just a thought...

    well no more than a lost or broken pole.
    taping cuben? why not glue it? but excellent idea and the valve woohoo.
    and the weight of the cuben would be less than a carbon pole!

    Any manufacturers listening????

    You can purchase the bladders here:

    Shouldn't be too hard for a DIYer to sew in some velcro loops to the underside of their tarp in which to attach a Nemo bladder.

    Can't find the length on the website .. maybe too short for a decent sized tarp?
