DIY tarp/tent material

Postby CPMathews » Sun Sep 27, 2015 11:04 am

I'm looking to sew my own tarp/tent that will be used for winter camping. I am planning to integrate a wood stove using a stove jack.

What type of material should I use for the tarp? I don't think canvas is really an option because of the weight.

Any thoughts?

Go with silnylon 30D if you want to be lightweight,with large stove or 18" cylinder stove and it will be good.I dont kbow how big you want it but i suggest not to big it will be easier to heat.I am in the same project as you for a solo hot tent\tarp.

That looks great Reaper, camping with a log fire is something I have got to try!
