DIY Tarp Build – Ultralight Membrane Silpoly

This is a DIY Tarp that I build specifically for hammock camping in 3 season use. However, the square tarp design is a very versatile one, and it can be pitched in many different ways on the ground with trekking poles. I went with Membrane Silpoly for a material from Ripstop by the Roll. It doesn’t have as much stretch as silnylon, and it doesn’t absorb water or suffer from UV degradation as much.
