    I think if the 9485 works well, it would eliminate my need to sew anything. Just get some grosgrain webbing and tape it into place.

    *edit* - WV beat me to it.
    But I'll let you do the tests ... Besides, you have actual experience with the bond on your dry bags. That's valuable.

    Haha...You're too kind! I will be in the Smokies from tomorrow through early Sunday, so will put something together Sunday evening or Monday. I've still got some Hysol left as well as some Aquaseal and epoxies so I can throw those in there too.

    Sgt Rock,

    I've searched this thread and it's probably here somewhere, but as my wife says, I'm a blind mouse.

    What thickness of cuben did you use for that wonderful tarp?

    Thanks. I was hoping it was the 0.51 stuff. That makes for an unbelievably whispy tarp

    FWIW, I did try to estimate the weight of the tape after it is set, it came out to 0.001159 ounces per square inch. It may not be a perfectly determined weight, but it can get you into the ballpark.

    Great video SGT Rock

    I used a CF tarp for about 50 days on the AT this summer and will probably never go back for summer use.

    Now I may try to make one myself in a smaller size

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
