    Thanks, Raul. Gotta get some unscented. I think so JSpate61. It keeps it from sticking to itself.

    Waiting for mine as well. Who knew that the anticipation would make my SilNylon feel so heavy. . .

    SN

    By the way, does it really need sealed? Has anyone had one in a downpour without being sealed?

    Joe says it does and I'm taking his word on it. I don't want to get caught out in a leaky tarp. I'm still waiting for him to let me know which side to seal. Does anyone know?

    FWIW.... the OES Tarps I got from Brian were sealed from the inside.

    When you sealed your ZPack, which side did you seal. The inside?
