    HG 4S Cuben has arrived!!

    It has arrived! Received an extremely light carton via USPS today - my new HG 4S Cuben tarp!!
    Just under 7 oz. in the stuff sack, 6.6 oz. w/o stuff sack...
    Immediately installed the tarp on the waiting CRL with Dutch Flyz & soft shackle prussiks - hadn't made the guylines as yet, so used the ones off my previous tarp for now...
    Currently at 9.4 oz. with CRL, 4 guylines (so far), & mesh skins...
    Being my first tarp with door panels, I'll have to decide how to rig them to best suit my 'style' - will have to make time to 'play around' with various methods...

    A big thank you! to Stormcrow & Thorwren for a beautifully made UL tarp - plus shipping it in plenty of time to 'play' with it before Spring MAHHA & the pre-hang hike... Can't wait to use it on the trail!
    Happy trails!!!

    What is "4S" an abreviation or designation for? Beside "Four Season."

    Maybe 4 snakes? 4 splorkvernoogleans? I bet it is just 4 Season.

    6.6 oz for a "4 season" tarp? Wouldn't it have to have at least 14 yards of fabric?

    <shrug> I guess a definitive definition of 4S is in order. I tend to take things on faith until proven otherwise. YMMV.
