    Tarp Storage "Cuben Sleeves"

    Hi Everyone,

    Hammock Gear now has an alternative solution for storing your cuben fiber tarp. Our "Cuben Sleeves" are made out of the same light weight, water proof material as the tarp. We went back and forth on whether to make them out of mesh or cuben fiber and we ended up choosing cuben fiber for a couple of reasons:
    • the water resistant cuben does a better job of keeping your wet tarp away from your other dry gear.
    • I feel that the surface area exposed by mesh sleeves is not enough to significantly dry out the tarp.
    • Can anyone really have enough Cuben Fiber?

    No, there is no such thing as too much cuben. Cool sleeves!

    Yes Mr Adam. I am just a simple Pennsylvania Dutch boy. I have never been to Cuba. Will I still be able to use these sleeves?

    Ground pounder! We don't "deploy," we "set" or "fly" or "raise" or "hoist." And when we roll it up or secure it, we really "douse" and "furl." 'Least you said "line" and not "rope!" Love ya, baby.

    What are the weight of those sleeves in ounces and grams? Can I wear them with a down vest? Will they work on a blue tarp? Are they imported from Cuba?
    Do I need to seam seal them? How do I store them? With the tarp in them? Is Ricky Ricardo still living? Does he have some then?
    Do you include stickers? Do I gat a non-profit discount? How long do they take to ship?
    Thank you.
