    JRB 8X8 Ridgeline

    Does anyone know the RL length of the 8X8? I am considering this tarp or the Maccat Micro. By my notepad calculations, it appears an 8x8 would have an approximate 11' ft ridgeline, which would be perfect. The micro is 120" or 10 ft and it seems a little short for my eno double.

    Just looking for a summer overnighter, tarp. This tarp would only be used in the occasional summer 10 minute thunderstorm.

    Looking for some info so I can make a purchase. I already have a JRB 10x11 and love it. Hopefully the 8x8 is what I need.

    Thanks!

    The JRB site states that the finished size of the 8x8 is 7'2"x7'2", and the rl length is 10'.

    I think the problem with sil is the fabric width limits what you can do w/o additional seams. If you're willing to add a couple of seams, I don't see why it can't be done.

    I have a Chinook 9-6x9-6 that I'm probably going to cut down...looooong rl.
