Thanks so much for this simple DIY project. I just finished making one for my WB Superfly tarp. Turned out great.

I do not know for sure but my guess is that it weighs less then bug netting.
I have used it in the rain and it held up very well. Just make sure that you duble up on the thred as this stuff is very fragil and rips appart easily with only one run of thred holding it.
When I dubled it up, I had no problems what so ever.

Re: NoSeeUm Tarp Skins With Guy Line Storage.
Made one of these for my DIY tarp. They're great. I couldn't imagine not having them. I don't use a stuff sack I just keep the tarp in the skins
One of my next projects. Even have the netting. Ah
"Some ware around here"... Put on the (To Find it) list first.
Still after all these years this idea has held up. Nothing new to over shadow it.

I was looking at bias tape for my set as well.
The only bias tape I could find was almost 50% cotton.
My thought is cotton will absorb and retain moisture, and could eventually rot.
I used 3/8 Grossgrain ribbon on mine, and found a color to match the No-See-Um netting.
I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, make sure I stay here.
When I see lovers' names carved into a tree, I don't think it's cute. I think it's strange how so many people take knives on a date.
