11/10/14 - Added a few sleeping bags, tents and backpacks to our Bargain Bin.
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 printed on the other side.

Weight: 1.85 oz. per square yard  (62.7 grams per square meter)
Price: $3.00 per square yard / $3.00 per linear foot
