    Thoughts on cuben fiber

    I have not seen cuben fiber in person but several people here use it and seem to like it. What are your pros and cons of this material? I ask because I was talking to a friend of mine who does some pretty serious sailing about sail materials. I mentioned cuben fiber and he said a lot of sails are now made of kevlar and carbon for better strength and weight. He just happened to say, "I could get you some cuben fiber for free for all that hammock crap." "Crap"? While I will defend my hobby/obsession/addiction, I'm certainly not going to look a gift horse in the mouth when a piece of cuben fiber is at stake.

    So, would you use this as tarp material? Why?

    Thanks,
