    Cuben Hex Questions

    Can Someone with a cuben hex tell me if they are cat cut (edges and ridgeline)?
    Are cat cuts necessary with cuben?
    Pics would also be great if you have them, there are none on the website.
    Any other comments/opinions you may have on the hex are welcome.
    Thanks folks!

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Thanks, I should have found that! I looked at your pics in the gallery before posting but couldn't tell if it was cat cut. I have a couple of Dutch rings on my diy tarp that I think I may have to send Adam for my ridgeline, I wouldn't have even thought of that, thanks for the reminder!

    My pleasure, yeah the cat cuts are so shallow you cant even tell their their from the pic's but they really do IMHO make a big difference in getting a taught pitch. It's a great tarp its my go to in summer, spring and fall and in winter I use the HG cuben with doors.
