Notes: For a softer feel, prewash your Tyvek in a washing machine. It will make the material softer and easier to fold.
I bought the Tyvek ground sheet to put under my air mattress, which is suffering from small pokes on the desert floor. It seems to be better than the thin sheet of nylon I was using, but time will tell.
I used this on the PCT this year for my section hike of about the first 800 miles. It worked great. Using it every single day to either cowboy camp on or use as my ground sheet for my tent. Was the perfect size for my tent groundsheet. I wish it was about another foot longer for cowboy camping so I could set more of my stuff on it above my head. I folded it up on the same lines every time and it held up great. I have a few small tears in it that I never taped but they never got bigger. I would say that I was fairly careful with it but at the same time I just threw it down whenever. Probably one of my most used pieces of gear. Great to sit on and stay a bit cleaner. I wrote on it with a sharpie for hitch hiking and it worked great for that as well. I think that’s a big pro over the thin plastic ground sheets. Well worth the weight for me. Would buy again but don’t think I will for a long time. It’s defiantly dirty and shows it but I fold the ground side in every time and that seems to help some. Not sure what else to say. Also, on the snow it will freeze to it and you just peel it off in the morning and try to shake it off and then fold it up. Worked well at that too. Didn’t really seem to ever **** up water either which is really nice.
The small fits the gate wood cape quite nicely. Toatally worth having, very light and tough and watercolor paint can stick to it if you have to decorate everything you have like I do!
