    In my limited experience, I've never seen a tent up much faster than a hammock (save for those tents where you just throw them and they pop together). Last I checked they have rainflys and guy lines...

    I had them hold without issue in a 25 kt t-storm a couple months ago. Admittedly, mid-storm, I reached out and added an extra half hitch on the bight just to be safe.

    With silnylon, cat cuts are almost essential to be able to keep the fabric taut. Once the tarp is hung, the nylon will stretch a bit.

    It's a great tarp. I'm thoroughly pleased with mine. It's still my go to tarp. Great coverage and sturdy. I do occasionally wish I had gone with the superfly for the doors though.

    It looks hot and sticky...like it's August. We probably don't want to move too much farther into the year though since it could make too much competition for fall hang(s).
