Equinox Solo Tyvek Ground Cloth 2.5 ft. X 7 ft. Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Very light and strong, but can be noisy

Bought plain Tyvek sheet from ultralight supplier (not Campmor) and set up as groundcloth under tent in my backyard. Tyvek performed well and was extremely light weight. Just be warned that it can be noisy if wind catches it or as you shift your weight above it -- sounds like amplified paper being crunched. I have heard that it can be washed in gentle cycle by washing machine (but not machine dried) and that machine washing may soften the material somewhat. If so, it may partially attenuate the crunchy noise problem.

Great ground cloth

Well it's really light and works as stated I have one for my tent and I spread one out on the ground in camp. My friends with heavy backpacking chairs laughed at me until I stretched out flat on my back and took a snooze next to the campfire without getting dirty. Sleeping in a Crazy Creek chair does not work and those things weight at least 16 oz!

After seeing it reviewed a number of places, I finally got one. Will mostly be used underneath (on the ground) below my hammock as a 'floor' and occassionally as a ground sheet for ground sleeping. I've heard washing it makes it a bit softer but does not take away the puncture-resistant aspect of the material, though I haven't tried it yet myself. Tough stuff--so light it's nearly inconsequential.

Cheap and Effective

Bought one for a one person tent while on a solo cross country bicycle tour. I used it daily for a couple of months and never had any issues. Its light weight, and much less expensive compared to manufacturer ground cloths. The one minor complaint is that it is stiff when you first use it, it does break-in after a couple of uses.

lightweight, compactable

Backpacking on the AT for seven days. I liked how light it was because before I was using a clear plastic sheet which was heavier and more bulky. I noticed an insulating factor to it on the cold nights. I would like to see it in a darker green blue or brown so you do not see the mud streaks.

ground cloth

Very light weight ground cloth eliminates need for tarp. Best of all it fits perfectly under my solo tent, so no need for folding. I doubt it will last forever like the tent, but it's cheap enough not to matter.

Lightweight, but a bit small

I purchased this to put under my Eureka spitfire tent. It would have been perfect if if was the shape of the tend... but it was still really good.

Half the weight of plastic. Only problem is that it is white. As I like to backpack invisibly I'm going to dye it green.

Ultralight ground cloth

Match it with a silnylon tarp for a versitile ultralight shelter.

Tyvek has some weakness

I've read several references to washing it to soften. I can't imagine that this would not destroy it's waterproof quality.

Tyvek is light, too narrow

Good light weight ground cloth but 2.5 ft. wide is too narrow. Sewing two of them together might work.
