I was disappointed in an XL tarp because, as recounted in another thread on the size of Clark tarps, the design of the XL you and I had is different from and smaller than the current XL. I'm sure the previous design, expensive as it must have been to sew, was expected to be used in ways Clark owners will not discuss here today.
The current XL fly / tarp is 8' x 10.5'.
