Ran out of daylight to do anything further, so tomorrow I'll throw a wbbb and TtoT Switchback under to show the coverage.
I'll also weight the tarp in its stuff sack with the CRL , prussic's and 4-6' tie outs all made from 2.2 Lash-it.
If there is any questions or photo's you'd like to see please ask and I'll do my best.
A little info on this deal.
I order via there website on Thursday, received a shipping confirmation on Saturday, and the tarp was in my mail box Monday.
paid $265.50 + $4.53 shipping USPS First class mail.
EDIT ADDITIONAL PHOTO ADDED:
OES Delux vs. HMG Cuben Hammock tarp size comparison:
HMG Tarp with Tree to Tree Switchback deployed: Full coverage end to end.
The more I play with this tarp the more I like it.
Can’t thank Hangnout enough for the tip on using the LineLoc’s attached to all 6 tie outs points.
They are a dream to work with once you know how to thread the line thru them.
I have removed the CRL and will try the lineloc’s attached to the tarps ridgeline.
I need a bit of wind to test their holding ability since I'm not using the HMG supplied line. Instead
I'm using my favorite line, 2.2 lash-it. It's quite slippery in comparison.
For you Warbonnet fans out there. Super coverage on the ends and the sides.
So the wind did come up and the Lash-it is too slippery to hold in the LineLoc’s
I still prefer them over a CRL so a couple wraps and a slippery half hitch later all is holding well.
