Can you say, "6.5 ounces?" I can put up with a lot for 6.5 ounces. If Cuben Fiber tarps are noisy, I certainly haven't noticed it. My HG 4S CF tarp is 6.5 ounces. Did I mention that?
I'm thinking of upgrading to the Winter Palace - much heavier (and no doubt louder) at 8.5 ounces. Can you say 8.5 ounces?
