well boys i recived my tarp today from wyominglostandfound !

i started shopping for a nylon tarp a little while back, and was blown away by the prices. equinox was going to be my pick, not because i like the bright green color they come in, i actually dont like it at all, but because it was affordable. ive been checking out wyominglostandfounds website for a while, and love his tipis. it looked like his tipis were made well. so i decided to get some prices from him. he answered all my questions, and trust me i had a lot of dumb questions. he quoted me a 2-3 week wait time and got the tarp shipped well within that time! he also kept informed to what was going on and let me know when my tarp shipped ( friday the 13th :twisted: ) and i got it today! i was happy to give him my bussiness and would have no problem buying from him again! when im ready for a tipi it will be from wyominglostandfound for sure....

here are some photos. yeah the inside light screws up the colors, but its raining out and i got home late from work. i cant wait to get it pitched in the woods!

it came in a matching stuff sack. the tarp and sack measure 1lb 3oz on my stren fishing scale. the tarp measures a FULL 8x10 ( i had read that equinox was actually cut shorter than the advertised size ) and its in multicam!!! he treated the tarp with silicone, and he did all the seam sealing. the tarp seems to be VERY well made! extra stiching and reinforcements where needed, with tie outs all over the place!

more pics up once i can get it out.

Holy crap I want one. What price did you pay? Are there loops in the center for a rope or center pole to make a shelter?

Ooh! Classy shade, keeps the water off you, and camo all in one. Could be a good item to put over a tent for all of the above purposes, or use alone if bugs aren't an issue.

he was running a sale for the last month or so i belive, so i got a little discount. his sale was posted up here a while back. i have no problem telling what i paid, but i dont wanna mess up whyominglostandfound. i sent him a PM so i know he will check out this thread. he can post what i paid or i will....i know his muliticam is a little more than some of the other colors/patters, but i decided to splurge since this was my birthday present from my wife to me! :D

there are tie outs along both center lines, and there are plenty of them allowing all kinds of pitch options. 8)

i know you like multicam, so i figured this would get you pumped up :lol: . 8x10 is a really nice size for a tarp, and it can be used for a number of things. as soon as the humidity lets up a bit ill be getting out on some camping trips. im gonna give tarp camping a try. i still have my brand new in the box spitfire2 that i need to get out as well.

Love it, looks well made and around the same price of an Integral designs tarp if not cheaper.

9" x 6 1/2" x 2 1/2" it packs up real nice.

If there are any seams I would seal them. If the tarp is silicone impregnated use clear GE Silicone 2 or Silnet though prefer the Silnet as it goes on easier without thinning and dries clearer. Also I like to reinforce the stitching on any tie-offs etc with sealer.

Multicam rocks.

these also come in a slightly heavier urethane treated multicam ripstop. the weight difference is minimal in my opinion and the urethane makes for a very durable
fabric. i am working on an order of 30 weight silnylon in multicam. the MC pattern has really been a big hit with the military folk.

the 8 x 10 is 115.00
the 10 x 10 is 130.00
the 10 x 12 is 155.00

add 10.00 for the urethane ripstop tarps.

all come with a zippered stuffsack , seam sealed ridgeline, and shipping conus. completely warrantied!!!

please p.m. any custom requests. the ponchos....etc. thanks, wyo.

p.s. to xxxDarksidexxx..... can't wait to see your camp pics!

no camp pics yet. im planning a solo ( dont think any one will be willing to go with me ) trip in a few weeks. 14 mile hike round trip with an overnight along the st. lucie river.

im not sure if i will use the tarp and mosquito net, or if ill try out my new eureka spritfire 2.... :? i may use the spritfire with the new tarp pitched over it and leave the rain fly home.

ill post up pics on a new thread. :)
