I'm always happy to lighten things up in my pack. This durable and strong sheet does just that!
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.
Fold up the edges and tape the corners to make yourself a bathtub floor for your tarp. Cut it to size using regular scissors to make a tent footprint. It does not fray and you do not need to hem or tape the edges.
This material is white on one side, with a blue and red Tyvek logo printed on the other side.

Preference for Tyvek
I prefer to use a Tyvek groundsheet and I trim it to fit the footprint of my tent. It's also handy to use as a sit pad during breaks. Wash it a couple of times to soften it up.
Nice but ready cut to size might be even better...
Seems like a tough sheet however I think you could improve the product by offering to cut it to size for a specific Zpacks tent, eg. our Duplex
works like it should
This is the perfect accessory for my new FreeDuo tent!
