    Supposed to rain during my trip, but am hoping to shoot some video anyhow, but I'll try to give a better answer when I get back.

    I like the Cuban guy...maybe we'll see more of him...

    Timing of the dialog before the bag drops out of the sky was awesome!

    Back toss hitting the hammock was awesome!

    and the tarp weight is very definitely awesome...

    I laughed all the way through the video. Thanks for that.
    As for cuben fibre tarps they are still to new for me.
    I have learned lately that a product has to get past its child diseases.
    So I will wait a while even though it is a beauty.

    Oh Shug - my UL gear pusher! You just know my weaknesses. I have wanted one for awhile but now really considering a shout out to Adam.

    Wow Shug, you have me salivating over that tarp!

    This is where a cuben tarp shines (no pun) in my opinion, ,as a 4-season winter tarp with doors. A winter tarp requires a lot of material so the cuben makes a significant weight difference. With a minimal "fair weather" tarp there is hardly enough material to make the weight savings worth the extra dollars.
