A lot of times when I read about cheap tarp options, people say they don't want to go with a cheap WW tarp for the weight penalty. I just wanted to put it out there that I picked up a poly tarp from ****'s a couple of years ago. It's an 8x10. It tips the scale at 22 oz. To me, that's not so bad considering that they're readily available in stock for less than $10. That's actually lighter that most of the budget PU coated nylon tarps that I've seen. To top it off, it's also a dark brown color, not blue like what most people have from WW. I know it's not perfect, but since most people seem to stray away from WW tarps and how heavy they are, I wanted to put it out there for everybody that there are options out there that aren't too bad on weight. I attached a picture of it in use. It's not the prettiest, but it kept me dry. Hope it helps!!
