I have never regretted getting the larger JRB 11 X 10 cat cut tarp. Good weather I tie up the ridgeline between 2 trees and keep it in snakes skins. Or put up in the Baker Hut setup. Bad weather or winter, stake close to ground and tie off an end. All of the recommended large sil tarps on this forum by JRB, Speer, OES, Warbonnet are great investments.
