    Tyvek Storage System

    I don't know what happened to the thread but one of us posted about his Tyvek storage system on the model of an old-fashioned tool roll.

    Such an excellent idea deserves emulation so I made a couple.

    Tyvek is easy to mark up and sew. It is much better than the plastic zip locks I've been using.

    The picture below includes everything for my basic set up except the future dream cuben tarp, which will probably fit in another Tyvek envelope.

    I'll add ties and be very happy with this storage system.

    Whoever you were that posted this previously -- thanks for a great idea!

    Great idea! Do you attach it to your ridgeline for organization there?
