    ORDER PLACED About Ready to Place My Order! Couple Question

    I'm about ready to place my order for a SilNylon OES MacCat Standard to go with my WBBB 1.1 DL

    I have a couple questions for you experienced folks out there.

    1.) Does anyone, specifically, recommend panel pullouts with this tarp? 1 on each side would be 0.6 oz.

    2.) Does anyone recommend the underside loops?

    3.) Does anyone have photos of the Forest Green color Brian advertises? (I assume all the pics are Stealth-Gray and Black is well, Black. I'm not interested in Royal Blue).

    4.) Any reason not to buy the MacCat Guyline Kit?

    Thanks,
    Sean


    ****EDIT**** ORDER PLACED! I was too excited to wait. I placed an order for an OES MacCat Standard SilNylon tarp. Color choice (in order of preference) was Black, Gray, Green. I did not get any pull outs or loops nor did I get the guyline kit. I have some red 2mm accessory cord that should do the trick and it isn't quite as bright as the OES orange guylines (which I wasn't diggin... safety be damned!).

    Ok. Now I'm gonna head out to the porch and wait for the Mail Man to arrive.

    Just recieved my Deluxe tarp today. I see no need for pull-outs or loops. I use porch mode most of the time and use a ridgeline organizer for keeping things at hand.

    I did not specify the color and expected grey, but it turned out to be green, much to my delight. It is a nice dark green. Probably stealthy in summer, less in winter.
    I completely agree with everyone who praise the quality of Brians products.

    Any chance of a photo of that "nice dark green?"

    If you want to add line tieouts,,use these grip clips,,I used the light ones for 8 bucks on my 10' x 12' OES tarp and they work great,,

    http://shelter-systems.com/gripclips/products.html

    they don't slide at all when attached and you have them pulled out pretty horizontal,,for example attaching to hiking poles then running a stake line down from pole..if they slide alittle,,just cut a baloon in half and add it when attaching and the latex rubber will stop any sliding of the grip clip. Very light weight too.

    Very cool.

    I went to the site and wasn't sure how you use such an item. Found this vid on youtube that explains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67kC5mAUlHU

    I'll keep those in mind should I want side tie-outs.

    No problems with damage?

    Thanks,
    Sean
