    Good luck.
    0.51 is fragile to abrasion and pointy things.
    Pointy things include squirrel claws, falling pine cones and sticks, briars, cactus needles, etc
    I have a few repairs. Its simple and on trail ducttape works fine and is semi-permanent.
    Its plenty strong for a tent canopy that is well cared for.

    0.74 fares only marginally better with pointy things.
