    Oh the Cuben as bitten me.

    So cool. Only for the weight conscious or worth the price tag for anyone? Wouldn't mind another 4 season tarp for my backup HH. The WBBB already has a Superfly. Seems I should get a great set of quilts before dropping 300$ Ducats for a Cuben fiber.

    Intrigued I am.

    Stealth camping is all fun and games until you have to take a dump.

    If you already have a SF and you're in need of decent insulation, I'd say wait on the cuben. Unless the extra 10oz is really bothering you with the SF and you have lots of money to burn. That is just where I am right now. With my financial situation, I just can't justify paying over twice the price when I could lose 10oz in another area easier. But, as always, HYOH.
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    You would not believe how light and strong it is. My DIY cuben tarp is worth every penny -- only wish that I had joined the seam better. I know what to do better next time.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)
