    I've changed my mind and decided I do not like sleeves at all. Too much 'snake' in the backpack. Much less space taken up when the tarp is just folded up vs the unwieldy, stiff snake of a sleeved tarp. I'm sure I'm in the minority.

    I see your point about the snake in the pack, Brooklyn, but I actually snake the tarp and then put the whole snake in the stuff sack when I really need to be compact. That way I still get all the deployment and stowing advantages of the snake skin (I have a Hammock Gear single skin and I have a Dutchware single on the way).

    Because of wet tarp more often than a dry tarp, I quit using the Stuff Sac. Roll the Snakeskin from one end to the other and squish. Then I take the 12 foot Ridgeline Zing-It and wrap it around the bundle; which is stored out the outside of the pack! Worked great and Gear in the pack stayed dry.

    Same here. Yes, the tarp takes up more room inside a skin. But thatís really the only con Iíve noticed. The pluses more than make up for that one drawback.

    Packing the Snake Skin encased tarp has been the primary deterrent for me. For the limited tests I have done, I have rolled the snake skin and wrapped it with the loose RL. This results in a hard softball sized bundle. On the other hand, stuffing the tarp into a slightly oversized noseeum stuff sack leaves me with a soft bundle that can be stuffed in and around other items.

    Jury is still out for me.
