Tyvek has proven itself to be a useful material to make various items from which are light and durable for the lightweight backpacker.
We have purchased a roll of Dupont Tyvek 14 and produced a range of test items to see how well it performs. Initially it feels slightly stiff, but soon softens to the touch and is so light you have to physically look at it to confirm you are actually holding in your hand.
At only 140 microns thick and a Hydrostatic head of 9000, makes it ideal for backpacking items and therefore we can make various items to order such as; bags, groundsheet protectors, covers and so on. Contact us directly if you need a quote for anything custom made.
Measuring 25cm x 12cm these peg bags are reinforced at the base and top to reduce pegs accidentally piercing the material.
Shown in the photos are a pack of 6 pegs and based on their size the bag would easily hold 12 or more with ease.
A simple ‘roll and tuck’ closure method hides the pegs safely inside.
Final weight only 4gms
