SLO Sail and Canvas is offering custom-made FlipPac rain flies. We considered the needs of campers in a variety of climates and designed a fully customizable fly. The design is symmetrical so either end can be installed over the flip-open lid. The standard fly will come with four 8 ft. long, 1 inch wide webbing straps with two 1 inch triglides. Two of the webbing straps with triglides are designed to be run from the back corners of the fly down to the bumper. The remaining two included straps are designed to go under the open lid from one side of the fly to the other. The fly also comes standard with four vents—one on each end and one on each side. Additional vents and clear vinyl windows can be added for an additional cost. You will still get the standard 4 straps and 2 triglides but you can add an additional strap kit that contains 4 more 8ft straps and 4 more triglides for an additional cost. Unless your fly will be regularly used in a hot or humid climate, we suggest ordering the standard fly with two windows. For hot or humid climates, we recommend adding two vents. These rain flys are not seam sealed. You can seam seal the fly yourself using any commercially available seam sealer designed for tents. All FlipPac tents are the same size, only the fiberglass shell changes size with the size of the truck bed. This means that our FlipPac rainfly will cover all FlipPac tents no matter what truck you have.
Some additional features that make the SLO Sail and Canvas FlipPac rain fly unique:
The package arrived today and we just got a chance to test fit it before the sun went down. It couldn't fit better if you had my truck in San Luis Obispo. It's perfect and I'm amazed at how you reinforced it with the webbing. It should be very secure even in a strong storm. I'll get some pictures this weekend.
Thanks for everything.

Got the rain fly today and had to try it on (in the mud and snow!) Looks great. Job well done. The color should work out well. When it warms up I will be doing some seam sealer.
