    I have the HG cuben fiber tarp sleeves - love them. They dry quickly so I'm not sure why HG discontinued them.

I have one for my 12 ft standard CF tarp without doors and it’s really tight. No way you’ll get a palace in there.Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
    If the mesh sleeve is the same size as the DCF version, the Palace fits just fine. Even if it's the mesh sleeve is a bit smaller I would expect the Palace to fit.. My Palace fits in both the single and two piece DCF skins and I would think 0.67 mesh has a bit more accommodating give than DCF.

    As did I.. not a big deal.. It's worth it just to try it.

    Clearly stated above. I spoke with HG on more than one occasion and was told....

    "Good afternoon Michael,Inability to dry efficiently is one of the main reasons we moved away from the DCF sleeves. They basically create a waterproof skin and the tarp can never dry out adequately, while on the trail or at home. I would recommend the Mesh Sleeve. Those work so much better, in our opinion, than a SilNylon or DCF sleeve. Stuff sacks are ok, but over time, repeated stuffing of a DCF tarp into a stuff sack can cause the Dyneema fibers to delaminate from the Mylar layer. We use 0.67 noseeum mesh for those. "

    If the HG mesh sleeve doesn't fit well with their Dyneema Palace (which would surprise me), then I have other, smaller tarps I could use it with. Or chalk it up as a loss and pass it on to another forum member. In that case, the 12' Nano-See-Um wide model from SLD is only $25 or so to try again.

    I received my single piece mesh sleeve today from HG. It does fit, but I agree it is tight. I will probably be putting it on my wife's Superfly and ordering a bigger one from somewhere else.

    The same showed up in my mailbox today. I agree it looks like it would be a tight squeeze with the palace. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet.
