    Get 8 yards of sil from Ed for $32 and make your own...probably $50 total for a 10x12 tarp from 1.1 oz silnylon.

    Campor sells the Kelty Noah's Tarp 12 x 12 for $60 - it has cat cuts but weighs almost 2 lbs. but it has lots of tie outs - maybe someone on the forum actually has one that can speak about it.

    funny you brought up the Noah's Tarp, when I think of the sg tarp(9x9) I bought it reminds me of a knock off job of the kelty(9x9) and I'm pretty sure that they are both pu coated polyester with tie outs in all the same spots

    Frick, maybe I should just sacrifice the weight and do that. Seems like my only option since I don't have a steady period of time to make a tarp.

    Anyone know how big the ASYM 70D P.U. COATED POLYESTER RAIN FLY is?

    well the HH PU hex isn't a bad deal at $60
    You could actually get one with the odds and ends hammocks (if they are still selling). It's PLENTY big but weighs aroudn 25oz (which includes the lines I think).

    Any Good??

    Tried to order one and found out that they are out of stock and don't expect them in till March of next year. So you'll have to wait 5 months on that question.

    I have a 9x9 Noahs tarp. It is the same size and cut as the "NEO" 9x9 but weighs 3 ounces less. I would think the 12x12 Noah would be a bit lighter than the 12x12 "Neo" tarp. The 9x9 Noah is on my avitar with more pics in my gallery. Its a good tarp but I don't use it much.
