    Nice and lightweight ground cloth. Takes up less space than the waxed canvas version.

    Light, but strong!

    Love this ground cloth so much. It is pretty and functional! There are so many uses for this. I've been using a square of tarp for a ground cloth for many years and this is such a nice upgrade. It's waxed canvas, so tough, but it's thin enough to be quite packable. Looking forward to using it for many years.
