So here's the thing, I need a tarp and I'm on a wicked tight budget. The guide gear 12x12 looked perfect until the whole deal with them not actually being 12x12(actually 8.5x8.5). The Chinook also looked great being that it was larger(12x9.5) and a bit tougher, but it's twice the price and I've heard that the grommets for the guy line tear out if you don't sew webbing loops on. So do I go with the cheaper, smaller option and hope it provides the cover I need in case of rain? Or go outside my budget for the bigger one and hope the grommet problem is an easy fix? Or is there an alternative to both that I don't know about?
Here are links for the two tarps. guide gear is about $20, Chinook is about $40.
