    Ridgeline is still 11ft = 132". It's just about the same as the first version, just with straight short edges so they close off better (with loops and mitten hooks to secure enclosure).

    P.S. Disregard price on that pic until 2010.

    I ordered mine yesterday, before I'd read this thread.

    Now, I'm even more comfortable with my choice.

    One of you tarp makers should start producing Mrs. Mustardman's awesome asymmetrical winter tarp design, as seen here:

    I have one of these from Brian and I had him add two side panel tieouts on each side panel. These tieouts are like the ones on the Superfly in Brandon's Tarp Video. They work well to deflect the wind when needed. Worth the couple extra ounces. Mine weighs in at 22oz. Definitely a good value on the dollar for dollar analysis.

    I'll be getting my Winter Dream order in today. This looks really nice tarp. This vendor returned my email within an hour. Great service!
