Are you car camping ? then weight is not an issue
Are you backpacking ? then weight is an issue
That tarp is heavy for its size and a bit on the small size. I would want something bigger
If you are car camping then look at at the Gear Guide 11x11 ft tarp at Sportsmans Guide http://shop.sportsmansguide.com/net/...aspx?a=1148204
The big tarp is the Gear Guide 11 x11
The camo tarp is a Mosquito Hammocks Camo Diamond 9ft x 12ft
The dark tarp is a Big Mama Jamba from Warbonnet w/132" ridge line
The pictures give you an idea of the difference in coverage. The Adventure Tarp is smaller than the Mosquito Camo Tarp in the picture.
