    Shangri La tarp has arrived!

    My new Shangri La tarp has arrived and it's in the new stealth brown color.
    It is one SWEET tarp! Paul is a freakin' genius!
    It's an absolutely great color. Not too dark and not too light. It will be perfect!
    It weighs next to nothing!
    I don't know how Paul does it...

    Got to use my new single line tarp ridgeline and tarp guy lines from whoopieslings.com, too. It's a match made in heaven.

    Here's the stuff I ordered


    The careful unboxing of the Shangri La tarp

    I apologize for the bad pictures. The wind is HOWLING today!

    Looks good! Can't wait to see it in the woods.

    I think I am hooked on the top ridge line set-up. It sure simplifies my world when I am hanging solo or helping adjust my hiking buddy's tarp.

    I hear ya on the easy-to-adjust part.
    Everything fits into a tiny tarp bag. Now I have to decide if I want to go back to use snakeskins or not.

    Pictures of the new hammock are up next! I'll post another thread with pictures as soon as I can.

    Excellent tarp, I love mine! I built me a setup from the Lash-It for the ridgeline and tie-outs, similar to what you got from Opie. Just curious. what does he use as a stopper under the surgical tube, just a knot?

    A knot and a zip tie. Then he folds the tubing back on itself to cover the zip tie so there's no rough or sharp spots. Very professionally done!
