    Silnylon will stretch overnight when it gets damp. Without the shock cord your guy lines would become loose as the silnylon stretches. Then as the wind whips your loose(er) tarp it can pull the...

    Further studying seems to indicate the rip-stop used by HG is .67 oz. per square yard and the rip-stop used by UGQ is .9 oz. per square yard. That would account for the difference in weight.
