Overview

These instructions take you through the proccess of making a Dyneema (Cuben Fiber) stuff sack using our DIY Kit. The sack starts off as a rectangular piece of Dyneema. The material is folded and joined using transfer tape to produce the stuff sack. No sewing is required!


Taping basics

Seams on the stuff sacks are taped using a 1/2” transfer tape. Transfer tape leaves behind a film of pressure sensitive adhesive when the backing is removed. Unlike double sided tape, no carrier material is present in the finished seam, only adhesive.

To apply the tape, remove the dull sided backing and apply the tape to the DCF. Apply significant pressure across the entire tape surface. Rub off any exposed sticky adhesive, such as at the overhanging ends and along the edge if there is misalignment. It's important to press firmly and remove exposed stickiness before removing the second, shiny backing!


The construction process

How to video*

*This video is for our original kit and has some minor differences from the pre-cut kits. The pre-cut kits will have notches cut at the tops of the patterns and lack the reinforcing material for the drawcord channels. Additionally, the Spectra cord referred to in the video is now Dacron.


Terms of Use

YAMA Mountain Gear makes these materials available for your personal use only; they may not be reproduced or distributed. Any commercial use is prohibited. The instructions and patterns are believed to be accurate, but YAMA Mountain Gear assumes no liability whatsoever with respect to the use of the materials and goods developed from the materials.

Product Availability

NOTICE: Due to equipment failure, we are currently unable to manufacture Silpoly tapered tarps, Silpoly Cirriforms, and the Swiftline. For now, our focus will be on other products, primarily DCF Tarps (tapered and Cirriform) and Silpoly Bug/Wind Bivys (and perhaps the Sassafras!). We do not have an ETA on when we'll be fully operational.

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: Our capacity is very limited, and we can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. We only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help us to grow and to serve you better in the long term. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and opens up hiring opportunities.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
