Nano-See-Um Tarp Sleeves Kit

$10.00

This is Nano-see-um that measures 13 feet by 11 inches. Just perfect for making you own tarp sleeves. I made it a little extra long so you can add a pocket to the ends to stuff your guidelines. It is made from black .71 ounce per sq yard nano-see-um. We’ve added in a few feet of grosgrain to make a nice finish on both ends as well as helping with durability. This is a great DIY project for all levels of experience.

    Nice kit at a fair price

    Bought three and had one sewn up just to test. The kit includes all you need really, and enough material. The material could be wider, but it is just wide enough for my use (I have a 9’x12′ tarp). I added a cord lock and some reflect it on the ends, but it is not needed. I had a waterproof tarp sleeve before, but I had issues with condensation so these mesh ones are great. The material glides nicely and is easy to drag on/off the tarp. Now I will make one for a camping buddy and one for my other tarp.

    5 out of 5 Sleeve (snake skin) turned out perfect.

    I have a WB Superfly tarp that has an 11′ ridge line. The no-see-um fabric sent with this kit was 14′ X 11″. Plenty of fabric to make a single sleeve with pockets on each end to contain the ridge line and hardware. I also sewed channels around the circumference on each end. I used these to route some shock cord through and cord locks, so I can cinch the ends down. I used the grosgrain to give a clean look to each pocket opening, and each channel opening.
    The URL left in a previous post for directions on the project is good. However, those plans are for a two skin style that meet and overlap in the middle. This requires a tapered cut in the fabric. According to the measurements in that plan, the fabric within this kit isn’t wide enough. But, I simply did one full length skin, alleviating the taper, and simplifying the project. There was plenty of mesh to do this, and I think it is a better design, regardless.

    I more or less followed this guy’s design, (with the addition of the pockets I added on each end); https://youtu.be/_sSGmrzcWO8.

    The most challenging part was running a 12′ seam. But if you take your time, and your machine is humming, you’ll be fine.
    This is one project that pays off exponentially in simplifying the set up and take down of your tarp! It really makes things so much easier, and efficient. Plus, you made it yourself! The real beauty is, it’s a functional piece of gear, it doesn’t matter how it looks! It’s either packed away with your tarp inside, or slid off to the side once your tarp is pitched. So if you don’t have sweat shop sewing skills, no problem. As long as you can make a tube, you’re good.

    Well worth it! Good luck!
