Please choose from the following Add Ons:

Additional tie out loops
If you would like additional loops added to your tarp, such as along the ridge line for hanging bug screen, etc, you can add them here.

Email me to let me know where you want them after you order.
Price: $2.00 each  / .05 oz each

Tape on tie out loops
These loops are sewn to patches which have tape adhesive on the back. You can stick them onto your Cuben Fiber tarp anywhere you want.

The adhesive is not as strong as a loop which is sewn through the tarp, but it can be useful for light duty things such as hanging bug netting if you aren't sure exactly where you want the loops. These can be stuck to the Hexamid shelters or other tents as well.

Price: $1.50 each  / .06 oz each

Trekking Pole Cups
These triangular fabric cups go over the handles of you trekking poles and make propping your tarp up very easy. They can be looped on to any tie out, and can be moved around as needed for different set up configurations. They are made from black 2.92 oz/sqyd hybrid cuben fiber fabric and are very sturdy.

Price: $3.95 each
Weight: .1 oz each.
