I'm wondering if anybody has tried this?

A friend got some from a source that's no longer available. She has used some for maybe a year, with almost no deterioration. I might see if I can source some. My guess is that it's a more expensive, a tad heavier, but a lot more durable than Tyvek Homewrap. Has anyone actually compared them?

I've used the latter for some years, often rough camping. It seems to suffer particularly from being on coral fern, which tends to stick to it and tear away some fibres when I remove the bits that are stuck on it.

Hi - we have just come back from the Larapinta, where we used the Hardie Wrap - it was great, stood up to the dust better than the tyvek I think. Though, to be fair, our tyvek is about 10 years old! Hardie wrap is bulkier, but worked really well.

Thanks, Sandbars. Where did you get your Hardie Wrap from?

I think we got it from a friendly builder when we were asking around about tyvek offcuts! Sorry not that helpful.

No worries, Sandbars. I've been thinking of doing the same.
