I know Brian is pretty busy and it would take a while for him to be able to respond, so I figured you guys could answer a question for me. I just got my MacCat delux in the mail, and although lighter, it is larger than my old tarp. Part of this is because the stuff sack it comes in is bigger than what the tarp could potentially be stuffed in. It is possible to overstuff a silnylon tarp? I would like to put it in the stuff sack of my old tarp so I don't lose space, and would like to be able to use the sack he sent for other things.

Also while I'm on the topic of the tarp, what length lines do others put on the side tieouts?
