Tyvek is a great material for ultralight backpacking and as a groundsheet for protecting the bottom of your tent!
It is strong, light weight, smooth and resistant to water, rot, mildew and abrasion. It has a high strength to weight ratio and when you wash it, it becomes softer, quieter and more manageable. It won't bunch up under your tent like other materials.
Sold by the foot, the roll width is 9 feet and the min order length is 3ft. Place a quantity of 3 = 3ft - The price listed is per foot.
WASHING YOUR TENT GROUNDSHEET PRIOR TO USE:
You want to make sure you allow extra width and length when cutting your groundsheet because after you've washed it, it shrinks approx 5%. Wash it on a cold cycle with mild soap. Do not put in the dryer or iron the tyvek as it will melt.
I suggest putting it in for 2 short cycles with cold water.
Note: Sold by the foot - Min order is 3ft please up a min qty of 3 when ordering
This is not Tyvek 1443R but the thicker Homewrap Tyvek.
An even lighter alternative is our Polycryo groundsheet
Product as described. Washed down well and ready for use. Happy with service by Ultralight.
