    I'd like to buy your well-used sil tarp

    New hammocker here, wants a good quality 10'x12'-ish patched, dirty, or underutilized silnylon tarp for fairly cheap. Panel pull not required, but are appreciated, patches and stains OK as long as they were earned, cool history a plus. Hit me with a number and a make. Thanks!

    if you do a search you can still fine the guidegear 12x12 tarp for under $30 new ... also equinox sells tarps for under $60 that are pretty good for the money

    most used tarps even well used don't go for much less then they were new... that may change in the future due to alot of ppl starting to us Cuben and Spinn more ... also if you sew Walmart sells a 5x7 outdoor products tarp for $10... if you sew you can get 2 of them and sew them together and make a 18oz 10x14 tarp....

    thats about all i can think of right now... if you sew you can also get Silnylon 2nd's from BWDD for around $5 a yard and make one ... a tarp is not hard to make
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Just a little correction... to get a 10x14 you would need 4 of them.

    2 would yeild roughly 10x7 or 14x5.

    If G.L.P. was ignoring OP's request for sil nylon, then I'll just be the second violator and shill for a Tyvek tarp. Find a 9 x 10 on ebay, for less than $20 delivered. Add tie-outs with fixtures, or fashioned from super-stick Tyvek tape.
