    Sounds like my kind of tarp!

    I have been giving more thought to haning this square and not diagonal. The GT SB Pro is exceeded in length only by the TTTM single, so at 10' 6" I really need to make sure I have a large enough tarp. Now to figure out the sag and how much I will need to cover...

    it's a very nice tarp for the money...but man she is heavy
    33oz thats alot of weight for a backpacking tarp
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Yup I got it for me and my son to be under. He is only 9 and I am a little uncomfortable with him being too far away from me when we are in the woods. As far as weight it has to be lighter than old blue from Walmart. As far as the party.... I think its pretty cool when you can fit your whole campsite under your tarp.
