This is a MYOG 1.1 silnylon tarp that I made. It measures 6′ x 5′ / 70 in. x 60 in. and weighs: 5.3 oz. (5.8 oz in the stuff sack). The corners are reinforced with grosgrain and the center has a pullout loop on both sides of the tarp. The center pullout is sealed. I will provide 4 lines of Lawson iron wire of about 3 ft each to get you started on guy lines. I will so include a cuben fiber stuff sack.
Color: Royal blue.

I will sell together for $130 + 3% PP fees, shipping included for CONUS.
Why am I selling? I have used these items for the past year or so and really enjoyed a bivy set up. Much more than I thought I would. I liked it so much that I made my own bivy and this one became redundant. I used the Micro Tarp for a little extra coverage to protect me from wind or light rain. The bivy is waterproof, but having a little area to keep gear protected and to slip in and out of the bivy if there is wind or rain is really nice. The tarp is intended as a little extra insurance if the weather turns on you.
I have set up the Micro Tarp a few different ways with the bivy, including a lean to set up to protect against wind and half pyramid to provide head coverage against wind and light rain. .
