    Tyvek for ground sheet.

    I am after a piece of Tyvek to use as a ground sheet for my tentfly/tarp set up. Can anyone tell me where you can get a piece about 2m x 3m or there abouts without having to buy a whole roll?

    Thanks,
    R

    Does it need to be Tyvek?

    Rock up to a local building site where they're using the stuff. Give them a packet if bikkies for morning tea and they'll cut you off a length. That's what I did.

    Nah, doesn't matter. All those white building wrap fabrics are supposedly one-way vapour permeable.

    It comes up on Tard me from time to time. I picked up a roll with about 5m left on it for $20 a few years ago. It is bloody slippery as a ground sheet. If your sleeping on a slight slope, you will wake up off it most of the time. I use a bit for a tent footprint and it works great for that

    As we wear overall made of tyvek at work and nothing gets through them either way.

    Yep, they are used as moisture barriers so youd want to hope so

    Did you find any man? I can grab some if you need
