    The material is going pretty quick but there is still quite a bit of material left for sale.

    Thanks,

    Received mine this morning - fast shipping. The CT5K.18 cuben will make great reinforcements, and it feels lighter than I expected. It's also much stronger than the multiple layers of CT.6K.08 that I had been using for tieouts (and which haven't shown any signs of loosening, despite rough use).

    Thanks, Lawson!

    Hi Everyone,

    As most of you know. I am currently not making tarps but I have quite a bit of CT2K.08 .75oz in yellow that I am selling on my website for $20 per yard. Over the last few weeks quite a few people started asking me if I could cut a tarp for them. At first I was hesitant but now I figured what the hell.. So for $25 I will cut the tarp for you.

    I am going to start off with the flat cat design which is my 9'x9' flat ridgeline, cat cut edge design and then add the fastpacker which is the full cat cut tarp and then the hammock hex which is designed specifially for hammocking.. I will add a new design every day or so until the material is gone.

    Basically this is for those of you who want to make your own cuben fiber tarp but don't have the space to cut the tarp yourself. The material comes cut in two panels, stacked and ready to go. For the FlatCat, you will need to buy 6 yards of material + the cut fee + any CT5K.18 reinforcing you might need. 1' of CT5K.18 is plenty for one tarp or tent.

    Thanks,
    Lawson

    Ok after posting on here last night and sending a newsletter, quite a few people asked if I could supply them with a full kit. So those who were interested, here you go..

    The kit includes the CT2K.08 .75oz material already cut to the shape of the desired tarp, 2 yards of 3/4" nylon grosgrain, 8 line loc 3's, and a piece of CT5K.18 reinforcement that measures 12"x27" which is big enough to reinforce one tarp. Basically its everything you need to build your own tarp minus adhesive and thread.

    Prices are as follows:
    Flatcat $150
    Fastpacker $150
    Hammock Hex $170

    LawsonEquipment.com

    The prices are artifically cheap because I have extra cuben fiber laying around that I am not using.. Once the material is gone, there will never be a way to offer this deal again..

    Thanks,
    Lawson

    Wow! I can get enough to make all the stuff sacks & dry bags I'll ever need for $100. Excellent deal.

    Cool deal!

    If we pay for you to cut it out for us, do we get to keep the remnant fabric?

    Also, how deep are the cat cuts?

    Thanks a bunch!

    I don't understand. How can you cut out the fabric and there not be any extra fabric left over?
