    Ditto what DemostiX said bout JRB.

    I know nothing about the Vertex tarps, they may be the better choice for all I know. But when comparing the RL lengths ( of 11 vs 10'7"? ), be sure to find out if both are rectangular cut, as is the JRB. For a given length RL, the rectangle will give you more end coverage than the hex, and will be a little easier to close "doors" on, and will be easier to use in a wider variety of pitches like Baker Huts and pitching on the short ridge for a "hammock hut" etc. Then again, all other things equal, it will weigh more. so as always, trade offs.

    I think my wonderful Mac Cat Dlx Hex had the same 11 ft RL as my JRB, but I had significantly better coverage of my JRB Bridge with the JRB tarp. Then again, I think the JRB weighed about 5 or 6 oz more, so there are your choices!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    The fly you have is 10' x 10'7'', so to get any more meaningful coverage, width wise, it will have to be pretty wide. The ones with doors do look attractive, especially in rainy seasons.
