    Need skins Recommendation for New Cuben 4S Tarp???

    I'm looking for skins for my 4S tarp. Is anyone selling them specifically for this tarp or should I just contact Storm Crow??

    Is it recommended even recommended to use skins?

    If so, is there a thread discussing the method to properly wrap your tarp for skins?

    Just fold it up and put in a mesh pocket on the outside of your pack of back in the 0.1 cuben fiber stuff sack it came in. Don't bother with the additional wait of the skins.

    I talked to Adam about skins when I got my trap and that is what he recommend. Skip the skins, fold and go.

    Problem with skins and cuben tarp is that they could weigh half or more the weight of the tarp. I use a couple short mesh tubes that keep it from unrolling then fold it up like your would with skins. Cut up some pantyhose for a simple solution
