    Default Tyvek tarp variable milage.

    What kind of life did you or are you getting out of your tyvek tarp?

    Details, like I use it for a ground cloth in sand spurs to I have the bestest and strongest tie out points and they are... but still treat it like .001mil painters cloth and baby it.
    Longevity and details...
    And any comparison to poly blue
    ... tarps

    What Tyvek ?
    There are 2 major lines, hard (types starting with 10) and soft (types starting with 14) and each has several variants.
    Some details on some of the 10 types :https://www.ballanddoggett.com.au/co...pers_tyvek.pdf

    I use the roofing underlayment that usually replaces tar paper now. It's like tyvek but it's actually waterproof to, tyvek is meant to breathe and not totally waterproof, usually does the job well enough though.

    I use a Tyvek sheet as a footprint. It is very noisy both setting up and tearing down camp.
