    What to do with a old tent fly

    I found an old tent fly with a zipper down one side. It's maybe 7 feet in diameter. What could I make with it? I'm thinking maybe a weathershield, an undercover, smaller cat cut tarp, maybe a bunch of stuff sacks.

    Any other ideas?


    And Nooooo its not a huge condom.

    Wheewwww ... had to check and make sure you weren't from Texas when I saw that photo!

    ... on subject ... I'd probably go the stuff sack route myself ... I assume it's a coated nylon? If so it'd depend on the coating and how well it's holding up. If it's getting grungy, peeling and all that ... I'd donated it to a local trash hauling company.

    I'd make a great pack-cover...

    I'd vote for stuffsacks, there's not enough single-piece real estate for much more.

    I'd salvage the zipper and then depending on whether the PU coating was really stinky (PU) I'd most likely ditch it. I tried messing around with some old tent tarps but the seams from piecing it together left very little usable fabric. Not worth the effort for me to try to do anything.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
