Which side is "up" by the way? My hennessy tarp has one shiny, "sticky" feeling side. I assume that's the DWR coating. The other has a smoother, duller, more "fabric" feeling side. I have to roll it up with the smoother side out, otherwise it's a pain fitting back in the little stuff sack. The stuff sack is the same way, I had to turn it inside out, the inside was the "sticky" side.
So when I hang the tarp, which side should be exposed to the sun and rain? The dull fabric-y side, or the shiny sticky plastic-y side? Or does it matter ?
on my stock asym tarp the side with the waterproof tape is the underside and the more fabric like side is the outter
It's not the fall im scared of, it's the sudden stop at the end!!!
Only hang as high as your willing to fall- H.F. member
