    Looks like a good one. 13 oz or so, price is decent... Decent coverage, should be wide enough that if weather gets bad you can just hang higher in the tarp... Don't see why not, heard nothing but good things coming from those guys...

    Do you mean the Hennessy Hex tarp? I have one and I love it! It can be pitched low in bad weather or put up in porch mode in nice weather. It has little pockets for each line of suspension. I can't say enough good things about it. I got mine used from a friend and I am SOOO glad he offered it to me. It is actually bigger than many of the more expensive tarps out there.

    Actually he posted it in the correct sub-forum- http://www.jacksrbetter.com/shop/hennessy-hex-fly/

    Takes a second to check before you chastise someone!

    OP,

    FWIW I have had one of these for over 4 years now and its been great, just had it out at the NJ winter hang, with a set of grizz beaks it was awesome.

    If you look at the pic's of the NJ winter hang (posted by others in the thread) you will see the brown HH Hex tarp with grey grizz beaks on both ends. If you can't find it let me know and I will post the link.

    Have had one for years and find it very nice for three seasons. Good for four seasons with Grizz Beaks.

    The Jacks just recently started selling the Hennessy Hex Tarp in their store...

    I got to check out JuneBugDawn's this past weekend, and I have to say it's a nice tarp!
