    I ordered one of these a few days ago and just got it. It is ENORMOUS. It will be a huge improvement over the Walmart utility tarp I've been using.

    How do yall store your tarps? It arrived folded and rolled, which I'm guessing is the most space-efficient way to pack it, but I've heard that repeated folding can weaken fabric. If you stuff it, is there an easy way to manage/compress huge tarps like this one?

    My apologies if this has already been covered.

    Did we get an actual weight on one of these? Seems an excellent, inexpensive "over-the-picnic-table" tarp for group/family car camping.

    I got mine through AmbientOutdoors.com. Ordered Jan. 5, shipped Jan. 9, got it on the 11th or 12th. The quality of the construction of the tarp could be better, but it doesn't affect the function and at $40 shipped I'm not complaining too loudly.

    Contact them, it may just be temporarily out of stock.

    Ha! Let me know the weight if you can get it - you may even find this is just what you need. I'm still tempted to pick one up for "over-the-picnic-table" car camping. For the size, you'd be hard pressed to beat that price.
