2nd CAG, CAP 2-1-5 5th Marines, 1st Mar. Div.
It came today! Didnt get a shipping notice ...oh well. Still super fast turn around. Tried to add door ties as well but I dont think the email made it in time....no big deal. Looks great. Its alot of cuben. Packing is alot more dense...I
Using snake skins and its like a stiff, moldable tube. Its a learning curve but no worries. I had a BMJ before this...for some reason.mine was only 9.5 wide (yes stretched tight) but the Cuben being 8.5 is a big difference..well covered still but gonna have to see how it handles next winter. Pics and trails and errors to come. Weighed 6.7oz plus a .2oz SS. Gonna try prussick /guy lines and 3/32 bungie on the doors. Kimda curious how it will hold up with the ridgeline under the tarp.
Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken!
I'll preface this by saying I know next to nothing about cuben, except it was designed for sailboats.
I would be worried about developing a seam over time where the mylar coating might wear. Then again, the line we use is generally pretty slick and ideally the tarp shouldn't move once tied down over the ridgeline. Just something to think about.
RIP GORDIE HOWE
