I'd like to be able to close doors if need be and flip doors in as if it were a hex. I'm worried the with a rectangle the doors either won't close all the way, or if they did have the ample space needed with tie outs it would make the hex option very small. I wish I could explain this better. Sgt rock seems to have it down with his rectangle but its 9' x 7'. So I've been kicking around the idea of the bwdd winter dream style. I love how yours has diagnal angles to it, I didn't think the winter dream had that.

    Sorry for rambling on, I just can't get the tie out points right in my head for effective doors and effective hex.
    Yeah I'm not sure about the day dream I only have the winter dream and absolutely love the design. It all depends on how big or small of a tarp you want, what type of coverage are you looking for and in what season. And most importantly what are you comfortable. with. I don't like small tarps am not comfortable using them so I choose to use big ones. And rambling about hammock and all related.

    I apologize. I meant to say winter dream. This is going to be my first "proper" tarp so I'd like it to be as versarile as possible. I think that's a huge benefit of cuben, for around only an ounce penalty I can have doors. we can have big versitile tarps that are very low weight. I currenrtly only have hennessy stock tarps and they just don't cut it for me. Since they are expensive I probably won't buy another tarp for awhile.

    My Cuben from Joe at Zpack ships out on 2/15. I went with a design very similar to KK. My doors are permanently attached and I plan to be able to pull them back and clip them to the side tie outs. I will let you know how it works after using it as my home for 5 months

    I've put some money into gear this last year - more than I probably should have! I like the cuben but the price still puts me off somewhat. At least right now!

    I have the MLD cuben hex tarp, and like it alot.

    Be aware, though, that cuben is very translucent, and full moon nights under a cuben tarp are very bright!!!

    Your gonna love the design. Scott did a great job with the BWWD. The design IMHO is flawless. I like the shorter sides on the cuben for 3 season and the BWWD for winter. having that 2.5 xtra feet on the sides is really nice in the winter IMHO

    And this was one reason why the cuben appealed to me. I have a black BWWD with no light shine through and I like the idea of being able to see the moon and star gaze under my tarp. At least I hope I can see the stars through cuben on a clear night. See the lightning watch the snow : aahh man I cant wait to get out next week.
