    so, 10 square yards, at 22oz is about 2.2oz a yard, more like 1.9 with extra for the tieouts.

    Just fyi, the HH silnylon hex fly is 1.18 pounds (19oz) and it is 12'x11'. Add tiny bit more weight for tieouts.

    I just bought one and am thinking of making a cat tarp out of it...

    I don't know what the price difference between the Kelty tarp and the HH tarp though. How much is the Kelty? Never mind. I see there is about an $80.00 difference in price... sorry.

    Just bought the Kelty Noah 9 from Campmor.com - $50.00.

    I have been looking at the Neo tarp, which I believe is 12'x12'. That one is just way too big for me - diagonal is just a hair under 17'. The 9'x9' is a smidgen too small with a diagonal of 12.72'.

    The Kelty Noah 9 is 10'3"x10'3" which gives a diagonal of 14.5'. Not too small and not too big.

    Also, not the lightest thing around, but for that price

    sorry for the delayed answers...

    i'll get a photo of the corners if you still want, it has eyelets on the 4 corners, also has webbing loops, i used the loops w/ some cord and figure 9's

    it has little wings because its a diamond shaped tarp, i just tied out the extra loops like a hex cause its winter, that gives it a steeper pitch so it holds snow/ice better, also makes it more taut

    another thing about this tarp is if you want to go stealth in winter it blends into the snow fairly well
