    Cuben Fiber Hex Tarp

    What is the best way to store cuben fiber? Folded, stuffed, or stored in skins? I would like to hear how you store your CFT long term and while in the field.

    I tend to stuff my tarps in snake skins.

    On the trail tarp skins

    after a trip I hang it in my basement for 24 hours to dry out then I fold neatly and gently place in a drawer.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I had one of my HG tarps in snakes skins upstairs in gear room for the past couple of months. Other day took it down to check it out and was hanging it outside, and found a place where I got something caustic on it and it had a melted spot around the center tie,,sent it back to Adam and he repaired it like new. I have no idea what I got on it, but the snake skin wasn't damaged one bit..I now fold them and put them in a large silnylon bag and in a tupperware tub for storage to keep that from ever happening again. Going to get some cuben material and do some testing to see what might have gotten on it to melt cuben cause I am still trying to figure that one out. When I am in the field,,it will be back in snake skins.

    I roll mine up to the ridgeline and secure it with a few small pieces of shock cord with cord locks. Then stuff it in a stuff sack.

    mines loosely folded at home,,,

    and i can't decide if i like a black bishop - standard sack - or skins on it.

    skins are probably easiest, esp. when windy.
