    Cuben Fiber 9'x9' 7.35oz Flat Tarp

    Hey Everyone,

    I built this 9'x9' 7.35oz Cuben Fiber Flat Tarp for Ground Dwellers and Hangers.. I didn't have my hammock with me when I took the photos. I will take some more tomorrow in hanger form..

    Looks great. And the weight is terrific.

    Are the seams bonded or sewn?

    That's a good size for both purposes (groundlings and hangers). The weight for the size pretty nice. I like how you did the tie-outs - they look glued on.

    I like that the green hue slightly decreases the inherent ugliness of cuben.

    Get us a picture of it in the stuff sack next to a soda can or something, when you get a chance.

    Great color and weight. What did you use to bond it together?
