    I've got a medium orange circuit with the roll top, but I'd rather have an orange Ohm (with drawstring). If you decide you're willing to change to a different pack, let me know :)

    Those are actually his UHMWPE straps, not the kevlar ones. I don't see the kevlar straps listed anywhere on ebay, you'll probably have to contact him directly for information.

    This is what I do for one end of my tarp's continuous ridgeline. On the other side I tie a trucker's hitch. Very easy, no hardware, and it comes apart with no trouble when I need to break camp.
