|Tyvek Ground Sheet
Tyvek "Home Wrap" is an ideal material for ground sheets. It is
waterproof, and very abrasion and puncture resistant.
Tyvek is stiff, and foldable like thick paper. It will not bunch up
or slide around under you like other fabrics. You can fold up the
edges and tape the corners to make yourself a bathtub floor, or cut
it to size to make a tent footprint. It can be cut with regular
scissors, and the edges do not fray.
This material is white on one side, with a blue and red Tyvek logo
the other side.
