If I'm unwilling to sacrifice ANY tarp protection from the elements, would it be better to go with a rectangular tarp, or make an even larger cat cut tarp to make up the difference lost by the cat cuts.
In essence my question is: are cat cuts THAT much better than a simple rectangular tarp?
If so, why? Quietness? Wind survivability? Slightly better view?
Why are cat cuts worth the trouble when a simple rectangle tarp must be way easier to make?
