    Tarp design 1.1 sylnylon 8.6 ozs.

    Here's my design for my late spring to early fall tarp (9 ozs.), decided to go with an asym catanary cut design. Anything else would have only duplicated my superfly (1-lb-14 ozs), only without doors and a bit lighter. The size of the tarp may be a bit better than a Hennesy, because they were all too narrow in my opinion from rain that could blown in with heavy winds, this one should provide ample coverage. I also like it because it only requires 2- tent stakes rather than the 10 stakes I'm currently using. Which will in an indirect way will also take off a few extra ounces.
