There are 2 HH Hex flys. One is heavier, and was an alternative you could order at the same price. It is a pretty good fly, provides a lot more coverage on the sides ( with an 11 foot ridge, I think), but it is heavier than the stock tarp, a lot. More than twice as heavy or even more, I think.
The other tarp has an even longer ridge ( 12 feet?), provides even more coverage. You can see it in my avatar pic in the upper left of my post, covering a Speer 8.5 and PeaPod. It is Sil-Nylon, weighs about 19 oz. It is not cat cut but surprisingly stable. It really is a good tarp, but costs about like other sil nylon tarps of the same weight. It has nice pockets at each guy out point to stuff your lines into.
