I have been waiting for .
I was really wanting to get one of the tarp tents based the 8x8 tarp. Did anyone who attended the camp out notice the weight for the 8x8 tarp tent? Seems like at the Mt. Rogers camp out Pan said the prototype 8x8 TT weight somewhere between the 1.5-2 lb range. That's just a few more ounces than my 12x10 cat cut tarp so I could justify the extra weight. If it is over the 2lb mark I will have to think twice about getting one which would break my heart cause I love that 8x8 TT.
This prototype is in the old green color.... production runs will be moss green ( read olive drab)
