OK, so I'm repeating probably what every other member of the forum has done before buying a bigger tarp: put together a matrix/table of the all the alternatives, etc. In doing so I have become puzzled by the low weight of the MacCat tarps compared to the competitors, yet the OES website claims use of 1.4 oz silnylon versus the 1.1 oz everyone else seems to use.
What am I missing?
Example: the Speer CatTarp and MacCat are both roughly the same size, yet the MacCat comes in 1/2 oz lighter. Speer uses 1.1 oz, MacCat uses 1.4 oz/yard silnylon according to their websites. In theory, the MacCat should be much heavier.
